#17 of 56 Popping noise in dash of 2009 Impala
Jun 18, 2010 (3:17 pm)
Bought a 2009 Chevy Impala several months ago with less than 20,000 miles from the dealer. A terrible popping noise could be heard in the dashboard. It has been back for repairs over 5 times. New dashboard installed...still popping. It is not quiet. You cannot even turn the radio up load enought to cover the sound. I've told the dealer I am done and would have returned it outright at first if assurances were not made that it could be fixed. Now the dealer says it is not a safety issue and no one else is complaining. The salesperson check the 2010's on the lot and 6 are making the same noise. Is anyone else having and issue? And does anyone have any ideas???

I had a 2006 model and the popping sound could mean they have to retape the dash if its happening when you turn on the ac through the vents by the wind shield. If its coming from the passenger side by the foot wells, they will need to replace the coolant pipe under there, but that is more of a constant ticking sound. One other issue could be in the vent itself where the door that allows air in and out of the vent is jammed and makes annoying loud pop. Look up all the TSB's on the 2006 models and see if you are experiencing and of those issues.

#20 of 56 2009 Impala Headrest Problem
Jul 12, 2010 (9:10 pm)
Hello, We are in the process of exchanging our beloved 2003 Impala for a 2009 and have found that the headrest in the 2009 pushes your head forward and down. Most disconcerting and annoying. Does anyone know of a fix for this problem, I stilll want to drive an Impala but this could be a deal breaker for my husband. I'm 4'11" so I am able to avoid it.

I was just wondering if you were able to resolve this issue. I seem to be having a very similar issue myself with my 09 Impala. My "Service Traction Control" and "Check Engine" lights often come on causing my engine power to be reduced, and it makes my cruise control unable to use. This is very annoying as I take many long trips in my car. I have taken my car back to the dealership three times for repairs but they haven't been able to fix it yet. Please let me know if you have found a solution or can help. I can provide more information via email.

Because you have been to the dealership multiple times I would have to have an agent look at your concern further. They do require that you take the vehicle in to be diagnosed. I will need you to e-mail me your contact information, VIN, current mileage, dealership and best time to contact you in order to set up a case. You can get my email by clicking on gmcustsvc. Thank you,

TThe problem that was fixed was the check engine light turning on and the jerking motion. The problem was the sensor that is down by the accellarator it was faulty and they replaced it. since there has been no problem

You can mix the E85 and gasoline. I would definitely recommend looking into the owners manual to read more on your FlexFuel engine.
