I know exactly where you're coming from; I had a similar experience with my wife's previous 1984 Ford Escort. It left me stranded twice (once with my then infant daughter on board), both times due to computer problems. While we fixed the car and drove it another few years, it soured me towards Ford cars from that point forward.
I've got almost 98k on my 2000 Impala, and the only time it has left me stranded has been when the battery has gone bad (knock wood!). My Impala experience has been comparable to my previous Toyota experience, so I'm very pro-Chevy/Impala. I wouldn't blame you for considering a Toyota or Honda next time, but I'm not so sure you'd be doing youself a favor by going to Daimler-Chrysler.

When the Impala stalls or dose not start for 10 minutes is the outside temparature always hot or can it be in cool weather also? Just curious because mind did it in really hot weather so I changed the coolant and so far so good. It has been a month since it happen. lomax

Okay, they finally took the car in and properly diagnosed it. They found ALL FOUR rotors out of round. After the car had 6,000 miles on it, they could feel the difference while braking. I am just super sensitive to ANYTHING. Also, they had to replace the ignition switch (different problem) because with the key out and the door open the bell said "hey, you left your key in the ignition".
