I just got a new left over 2009 Impala LTZ and so far it has been a great car. The 3.9 liter V6 has more than adequate power, shifts very smoothly, downshifts without hesitation, and has a huge trunk. I find the sport suspension with the SS tires a pleasant surprise on this car.
I wanted a car with flex fuel capability, big trunk and folding rear seat, and at least a V6 engine. There is not much choice out there. The Impala SS does not have the flex fuel capability, and it has the stupid AFM system, which I do not care for.

We purchased the Impala new last year with 200 miles on it. Now it has 43k miles on it. It is a LS. Within the last year we have replaced the vent that changes the AC from hot to cold and back twice. 3 weeks ago we had an Allignment done and it cost $100 extra because of how it was designed and required a kit to get it right. Last week we fired her up early in the morning and when we started to drive to work she would not acellerate and hand no power. Come to find out the car was in a special mode designed to get you off the side of the road if the car had a major problem and was stuck in third. This is an automatic transmition. So we take it... under warenty... to the lockal dealer. The service guy said that the transmition was toast and had to instaul a new one. There is a week lead time to get it but my trusty 2004 GTO is taking care of me and my kids untill we get it back. As a whole we have been dissapointed with the cars low quality design and relyability. Is anyone else haveing simular issues? To bad pontiac had to die and allow that pice of crap to continue to be produced. 21k brand new and less than 2 years old we have replaced a set of tires already with only 43k miles on them because of the crappy suspention craftmanship. Am I the only one pissed off about this? I will be trading it asap.

I have had continuous problems with the 2010 Chevrolet Impala. The first began with the front end suspension, the whining noise coming from the radio, steering wheel is now crooked from a shaft they replaced and a harsh shift in the transmission. General Motors has refused to work on the vehicle and replace parts even though the vehicle is under warranty.

Continuous problems that the manufacture has chosen to ignore.

The case number is 71-1094007948. The last eight digits of the vehicle identification number are A1149074. This vehicle has been 11 times for repair attempts. Mary had offered a replacement vehicle several weeks ago and then a representative by the name of Kyle got involved and stated he wasn't offering a replacement of the vehicle. I have called Kyle twice now and he has not returned the call. The last service done on my car made the steering wheel crooked and turned to the left. Furthermore, instead of replacing rotors they turned my rotors, thus diminishing the value once again on the vehicle. I had finally got to Kyle's supervisor and she has not returned my call and they are refusing to work on my car which is still under warranty.
Please contact me.
