I was driving down the street and suddenly I heard a popping sound and I noticed the car wasn't accelerating normally so I made it to my destination and I started the car up went to put it in drive and it wouldn't accelerate is was though the car was in neutral so I put it in reverse and it went into reverse put it 3rd gear wouldn't accelerate the I tried 2cd gear and it drove kind of ruff so I then tried 1st gear and and I was able to make it home at 15 mph so I took the car to the chevy dealer I bought it from and to my surprise they say there were some defective parts in the transmission and they could rebuild the transmission for 2100 dollars and I would have to pay 850 to have it fixed because my car is out of warranty as 7/23/14 the car has the airbag service light and tire sensor light that appears on the dashboard .

Horrible shimmy/shake when coming to a stop, even after replacing brakes and rotors. Uneven wear pattern on tires (especially the front). Inner tread and outer tread bald, even after front end alignment. Also feels like there's some steering issues to work out as well. We've done everything possible to make it not shake/wear tires, but nothing has helped. General motors has been of absolutely no help either!.

Failure Date: 08/01/2014

While driving at highway speed, noticed some vibration from rear tires. Checked tires when I got home. Rear tires have extreme tread wear on the inside edge. This wear is hidden because it is on the very inside edges of the tires, and you don't notice when looking at the tires from the side of the car. Most of the tire you can see looks normal. The wear is on the inner most 5% of the tread. And it is extreme wear, all the way through the steel belts. I researched and found a gm service bulletin for 2007-8 Impala tire wear and suspension problems like this. But that bulletin only called for service on models with police suspension in the rear. The solution required replacement spindle arms to be installed. Called gm and they will not replace my consumer spindles. But I have the same problem. This tire wear has caused bow outs and crashes if you look at reports that a google search can find. Search for Impala spindle and tire wear. You will be amazed at how obvious this deadly defect is.

4 michelin hydroedge st p225/60r16 97t tires have only 11,020 miles since purchase and are showing heavy cracks in the outer circumference tread portion of the tire. .

Failure Date: 04/04/2014

In the fall 2010 I purchased the 2006 Impala with nearly 19,000 miles on it. . From the start I was having problems losing air with one of the tires, and each time I took it in, was told it was fixed. At the beginning of 2013 I started pumping air into that one tire every 3,4, days, and the grinding noise I heard since April of 2013, ( at which time it passed inspection) progressed into not being able to steer at all. On April 4, 2014,(car inspection time) I managed to bring the car to the dealership I purchased from. After spending $921. For the yearly NY state inspection, four new tired, the problem with the deflating tire, the power steering , I thought everything is "ok". Not so. As I drove the car home, I heard this loud humming noise. I thought I purchased some bad tires??? so I drove the car a little longer, hoping the noise will subside. Not so!!. So, on may 20, this year 2014 I again took the Impala to the dealership. After replacing a front wheel bearing and another bill for $526. I needed to talk with one of the owners. At which time I also discussed the steering wheel problem. He gave me all kinds of explanation. . . . . And reduced the bill to $356. . After incurring a total sum of 1,278. I do not know who to blame. The car manufacturer???, the dealer???? or my lack of car knowledge. I am a single 75 year old woman, on a very limited ss income who thought this car should last my lifetime. I drove other cars before, and never experienced such heartache as I do now. As of today 5/20/2014 the mileage on the vehicle is 43,882. I kept this car in the garage, as you can see by the mileage, this should have not happen.

Failure Date: 04/01/2014

My 2006 Chevrolet Impala is experiencing problems with the tire pressure monitoring system, as well as the remote keyless entry system. Both systems use the same antenna in the vehicle, and the module controlling each system is defective. Many times a day while driving, an alert will appear saying "service tire monitoring system" and I will lose readings of my tire pressures. Mandated in 2005, tpms systems are as important as air bags and seat belts in vehicles, so this is a serious safety concern. I recently had a flat tire that could have resulted in a blowout on the expressway had I not visually checked the tire because the tpms system was not working correctly. I have found a service bulletin regarding the issue with a document id of 1990156. I have contacted gm about the issue and was told that it was no longer covered by the original vehicle warranty and a service bulletin is not enough for them to replace the equipment without charging myself, the consumer. This safety issue needs to be addressed because these systems are in place to increase the safety of the vehicle and they are not serving that purpose due to poor design right out of the factory. In addition to the failure of the tpms system, the defect also makes the remote keyless entry system useless due to extremely poor range (~2 feet). This is more of a convenience issue, but it is still caused by the same defect.

Swerved to miss a deer, ran off the road hit a light pole on passenger side,tore off front tier and suspension, car rolled a couple of times, blew out most of the windows, tore up the whole interior, slid into a guard rail and landed up right, and none of the air bags deployed! I broke my shoulder, collar bone and hand, the car had brand new tires.

This car is so dangerous due to incredible wear on the tread on nearly new tires. All 4 tires are very worn when the tires have only 10,0000 miles on them. We are slipping and sliding on wet roads. Even though we have had the car aligned -- there is something wrong with this car!!!!.

Failure Date: 02/26/2014

While traveling at highway speed in light blowing snow, vehicle began to vibrate. Vibration was extreme and constant. After contacting two Chevrolet dealerships we were advised it was a common problem with snow building up on rims. We were advised to power wash the inside of the rims. This was done and the problem was fixed. During the approximate 800 mile trip in and out of snow this had to be done twice. Chevrolet was contacted and we were advised there was nothing they could do. The vibration becomes violent enough that highway speeds are not obtainable and the vehicle is hard to control. This forced us to travel below the posted minimum freeway speed until an exit with a power wash available.

The first time was in Dec. 2013. Everytime I backed up I heard a clunk. I took it to the dealership and was told it was a bad right rear wheel hub. I was in luck because it was covered by my extended warranty minus the 100. 00 deductable. The car only had 40,000 miles on it. The second time was today,3/14/2014. I went in for a state inspection and was told that the right front hub was bad. The warranty covered it again. The car only has 42,190 on it. Only 2000 miles between occurances. Something is seriously wrong here. Also I was just told of a recall on the power steering hose. Does this include my 2012 Impala?.

The lug nuts on my vehicle seem to somehow loosen themselves. The front driver tire will make noise then I look at the nuts to find that they are loose. Then when I grab the tire iron to tighten them, they either a) came loose again later, or b) the nut completely comes off. . . With part of the part the nut goes on still inside. I mean the entire part breaks and can't be fixed without replacing the entire axle. As of right now there are only 3 of the 5 nuts holding the tire on and the others broke.

I was driving home from work and the car started acting like it was uneven. I got to where I could pull over and found a balloon growing out of the side of my tire. The car is not that old and the tires in my past Impala's have lasted much longer. I am not happy with this. I had to call someone to help me so that it didn't explode and cause more damage.

While driving on a straight street past an intersection, a car ran the stop sign and hit the right sid corner of the passenger door and dahaged the right reat wheel causing a 180 spin and sliding into the curb damaging the left wheels and steering doing $10,000 damage. The problem I am writing about is that the airbags did not activate. I have to wonder why and are they going to activate if I have another crash.

When my Impala first started to display the engine power reduce message. I was told that it was the accelerator pedal position sensor. So I change the gas pedal the engine light when off for about two weeks. Then my car cut off one day as I was on my way to work. When I went to get it check they told me it might be the alternator and then it was the throttle body. Then there was nothing wrong with it but my car is now park and refuse to stay running. It will start only to cut off a mile or so into driving.

Chevrolet Impala displays excessive wear on the inside of the rear tires. I am assuming it is the rear tires as online searches describe the same condition affect the rear tires. The tires were rotated every time the oil was changed, so the front tires show some wear but not nearly the same amount of damage. It is my guess this wearing started before the most recent tire rotation. The tires are worn to the point the cords are showing along the inside of the rear tires. The tire is very rounded on the inside edge of each tire while the outside edge of each tire looks like they did when new. The tires are michelin hydroedge tires with approximately 50,000 miles, they are rated for 90,000 miles. Online information says this is a problem with the spindle rods. There is a pending class action lawsuit against "new gm" to honor design problems of "old gm. " gm order a recall on all police Impalas from 2007-2008 withing a VIN range to replace the spindle rods. Bulletin no. 08032a. Also search document pic5406a for more information. This is a severe safety problem which could lead to tire failure while operating the vehicle. !!!.
