#143 of 483 2010 Chevy Impala issues
Jul 12, 2012 (9:46 am)
I have been having the same issues... service stabilitrak and engine power reduced.. and having to listen the bing bing bing for 30 miles or more before it shuts up. Talked to dealer when this first happened, was told sensor would reset self and not to worry. Issue continued, and finally dealer replaced the YAW sensor today - no covered by any warranty so cost me $360 - as he told me if I did not replace the sensor the car could just quit running at any time I was driving. Ok.. sounds like a KNOWN issue to me, especially after reading all these posts. WHY is GM not recalling these cars and fixing this KNOWN issue??? Are they waiting for a car to stall and someone to get seriously injured or killed??? This is the first chevy I have owned for the last 25 years, and as soon as I can afford it, this chevy will be replaced with a FORD. Last 3 lasted me for over 150,000 miles with no major problems, and when I had a sensor issue, FORD fixed it for me for FREE... and it was not covered by their warranty!

It has been a couple of months since I started getting the "Reduced Engine Power" messages and then I got a "Service Throttle" and "Starting Disabled" message and when that happend the car just quit.
So I took it the dealer and got it fixed. The codes were P2122 and P2138, they replaced the APP (Accelerator Pedal Position) sensor. So $461.

Wow...should I just write ditto!
2009 Impala, I got the traction control~reduced engine power~service throttle starting disabled, yesterday.
If I had gone one more mile without the car stalling, I would not have had cellular service. Called AAA and it took them 20 minutes to track down my exact location. I travel a lot of rural areas and would hate for this to happen when I was without phone service.
If GM doesn't want to issue a recall, maybe Impalas should come with lifetime Onstar service!
I previously had a 2004 Hyundai Sonota with 175,000 miles. Never once did I have an issue with that car. I wish I had kept it.

I just bought a 2009 Impala with 91,000 miles on it for $5500. The catch is it was in a wreck and repaired. The CARFAX did say there was a wreck in Oct of 2011 when it hit a guard rail due to mechanical failure. I would assume those things were fixed as well but I guess I'll find out. At least I know what's comin!

I am having the same issues. brought a new battery friday and it started. on sat my husband drove it to work and went to the store and thee car wouldn't start. Got a jump and once we got home we were back at square one. Triple A came out and gave us a boost said that something was killimg the battery. took the car to O'rielly's and they said it was the alternator and the computer system. i will be taking the car to the dealership and explain to them whats going on, but i will make sure I inform them of the proir complaints about these cars. I small children that i transport everyday and i refuse to put there lives in jeopardy while they sit back and ignore the severity of the electrical that they should be fixing. They should do a recall on to many pople are hving the same issues.

I am having the same exact issue!! Lights appeared this morning "service stabilitrak and engine power reduced" and it's making a ticking noise thats coming from my glovebox!! my car is a 2010 also!! im so aggravated, i am a single mom of 3 and can't afford to have a car that is a lemon ESPECIALLY when there is a known issue!!! Flooding GM and/or getting the media involved might not be such a bad idea especially after seeing there are so many. this is BS, and it's obvious nothing is being done about it.
