May 19, 2008 (12:28 pm)
Same thing happened to mine,after about a month or 2 the speedometer started reading whatever it wanted. took to dealer and was told it is caused by the dash power cluster, and would cost about 400.00 to replace.the 2005 impala is getting to be well known for this issue.If you call chevy hotline they will tell you to: go to a dealer or certified chevy shop and have a scan done.then chevy will call you back to tell you if they will help with the cost of the part.(by the way they will not help).im dealing with all this now.Filed a complaint with the BBB and FHTSA.Hoping to get a recall started since this is a safety issue.Hope this helped.

If any Impala owners had to pay to have the lower intake manifold gasket replaced you may be entitled to payment from GM from a class action lawsuit regarding DEXCOOL.

I'm having the same issue with my 2005. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help. Very sporadic speedometer and thermometer functionality. I don't think it should cost so much to fix what seems to me to be a recall type of issue.
#13477 of 13621 Steering Noise - 2004 Impala
Jun 17, 2008 (9:29 pm)
A few weeks ago I have noticed a slight clunking/popping noise while accelerating from a stand-still while the wheel is turned, such as when turning onto the road from a drivway... It doesn't seem to affect the steering, nor can it really be "felt". If one were deaf, they might never hear it. I havn't been too concerned about it but want to know what it might be and if there is a possible remedy for it that doesn't involve numerous trips to the shop.

If you feel it primarily when turning to the right and when you have your foot on the brake pedal (feeling the clunk in the wheel and the brake pedal) odds are it's the intermediate steering shaft. Do a search for "ISS" here and see if the other related posts match your symptoms. As far as I know there haven't been any accidents/injuries as a result of the ISS problem, but it was/is pretty widespread among GM products, and is certainly annoying.

ya - now that I think about it, it is when I turn right. I remember reading numerous posts on this, but none that mentioned complete and utter failure of the steering system. Mostly it was just a noise issue. I think I also read some posts of people being able to lube the shaft and make the noise go away for a bit as well. I'll have to do some research and find out. Thnks for the info.
#13480 of 13621 Rear Seat removal 2005 Impala
Jun 19, 2008 (1:59 pm)
Hi and thanks in advance for reading this. I really need to remove the rear seat from my 2005 Impala to transport some valuable cargo. I've tried to lift it from the front of the seat, I've tried to lift from the back, where the back rest and rear seat cushion come together, no luck. Are there bolts that need to be removed before I can accomplish this?
