Its very sad that there is no recall or fix for this....I just took it to a 3rd mechanic too. and guess what, still not fixed. The worst is the Chevy dealer that was down the block was closed by Obama. I'm going to the NY auto show to look at Toyota and Subaru's

I also have been seeing the response e-mails from GM Cust Ser. asking for info. Has anybody gotten a 2nd response to fix the proplem? Or is GM just giving us lip service.
I vote lip service

I called them to complain and file a claim against GM. They took my information and want me to tow my crashed car into a dealership so they can come look at it. I have complained twice and not one person has responded to these complaints. Really upset with GM Chevrolet.

i have a 2008impala, and I have owned it for 2 yrs now. i have a traction control light, service engine and reduced engine power, once that warning comes on the speed reduces and it struggles to shift gears. also the lights go in and out on the dashboard. But once I park and turn the car off it goes away a drives fine. Sometimes it goes months with out doing it again and other times just days. And recently my cruise control would shut off by itself as I'm traveling down the interstate on cruise. It just shuts off and the car decelerates. what to do with this car, dealer told us impalas were the best full size car. Starting to wonder

I have read the comments here and this problem has occurred with my 2010 Impala multiple times as well. First I had the wheel bearing fixed. Then I had the gas pedal cleaned where the throttle position sensor is. Then I replaced the throttle body. GM dealer says none of this is covered under powertrain. I am having this brought back to a GM mechanic for the fourth time. If this is not a small fix at this point, I am through. I would rather pay the loan off than continue to dump money in to an unreliable vehicle. I am through buying American cars, my prior Ford Explorer gave me all sorts of problems.

turn your wheels to the left right, undo the abs sensor clip and then cover the end with electrical tape, voila no more traction control

I wish I was handy in that regard Winny. I called up to GM Corporate and they had no interest in that the car has been at the mechanic 4 times in the past month for the same issue, and is a 2010. They asked why I did not bring the car to Chevy Service. Well, I told them I had each code read and each time I called the code in to service, it was not covered under powertrain warranty. I stated why would I bring it to Chevy service and get ripped off on price when I can just bring it to a local GM mechanic for 15 years I trust. They had no concern for my vehicle. The Chevy customer service is as faulty as the parts they put in their vehicles. They should be ashamed of themselves.

Really!!!! I have a 2006 impala, bought it new, took very good care of it, all scheduled maint plus some completed on time. I always had a chevy or a pontiac. Some were very good others were just ok. This 2006 has just turned 50,000 miles. It is without a doubt the worst car I have ever owned. The muffler rusted out at 30,000 miles, not covered over 3 years old. Then coolant by-pass tube and water pump, not covered over 3 years old. Then heater/ac control door motor, not covered. Then acc pedal control module, not covered. Then the power seat went out. Now I have a body control module blown out due to a power spike from the cooling fan. Really!!! All these afflictions with the exception of the muffler have GM service bullitens so they know there is a problem. GM cust care is eye wash only, they really don't care. 2014 Chevy impala? I think ill pass on this one. I need a break

This is the 5th time I have had my 2006 Chevy impala in the shop, I have had it exactly one year and 2 months, I have a traction control & engine light on and I keep getting no answer from 3 different shops why it is on. All computer checks won't give them the proper codes to fix the problem. I feel so unsafe in my car I have had it in the shop more than I have driven the car. No one including GM has no answers. I have no trust in Chevy. All the problems is so sad that they put us at risk. I think GM should recall this problem before someone gets hurt or killed by Chevy. Please fix before I have no money left and no car running.
