#7 of 38 2009 Impala Traction Control
Oct 31, 2011 (5:59 am)
I have a 2009 Chevy Impala LTZ with about 70,000 miles on it and the traction control and throttle control message comes on frequently. There has been not wheel spinning or wet pavement. The display will say service traction, Engine power is reduce along with the engine light coming on and staying on for a day or so. Took the car to Friendly Chevrolet in Dallas, TX and they told me that the gas pedal module needs to be replaced. Wouldn't this be covered under the Power train warranty? Dealer says no but this is not fault of mine and there has been no damage to the car to make the Gas pedal module goes out. I have had this car for 3 years this April. Itís a 2009 Chevrolet Impala LTZ. I have never had any other issues with the car. I heard that GM changed their warranty on their 2010 warranty. Can anybody help?
On Friday 10/28/11 the card stopped in while I was driving and displayed the following messages service traction control, Engine power reduced, Engine light and the car shut off completely. I would not start again and I had to have the vehicle towed to the nearest dealer. Again the car was taken to Friendly Chevrolet in Dallas, TX. Can someone please help with this issue or advise me with the correct information regarding the car.
I really like my Chevy Impala and would hate to have to get rid of it. But I need a car that works.

Replacing the gas pedal fixed mine. Since I had just bought the car (even though it had 43,000 miles on it) the dealership replaced it at no cost to me. This is an issue with alot of the chevrolets. Since I've had the work done I've had no more problems with the car. In my case Chevrolet stood behind their product.

#11 of 38 APP Sensor
Nov 01, 2011 (11:48 am)
I was just informed by the dealer that the APP sensor is bad in the car and that it needs to be replaced. I wanted to know if this is something that is covered under the Powertrain warranty. They are charging me $460. to replace this part. Not sure why if the part is only $127.00 why is the labor so expensive. Although I need Pritszy I still need to make the monthly payment.
Can someone please give me some assistance with this

#13 of 38 2009 Chevy Impala Dies again
Nov 16, 2011 (6:16 am)
Well I'm back My 2009 Chevy Impala (Pritszy) has died again. I just had this car fixed in October and it stopped on my again this morning. This si the 3rd time this car has stopped in 3 months. My concern is that every time I ahve had to come out of pocket for these expenses. I'm not sure what the problem is this time but it started to loose power and eventually just cut-off.
I recently had the APP sensor repalced and now this, the only lights that displayed ont eh vehicle was the check engine light. I really thought I was purchasing a good vehicle but now I have my doubts.

I have a 2006 chevy impala that ivonly had for only 5 months an ve bs yoyen experiencing the same exact problems im seeing that alot of you are having, I have back and forth to the dealership with this problem numerous times my car would not only reduce power but would shu t off countless times a day whether im druving on the street or on the freeway which is very dangerous having my two children in the car. The dealership replaced the throttle twice so far because thats what they were saying wthe priblemas the problem, obviously not if the problem vanished for about a week after replacing the thr soottle the second time an its now reoccuring and are now they are claiming it can be the type of gas im using and suggested I use "93" instead of "87" im yo the point where I dont know what else to do its very frustrating.
#15 of 38 wow how bad is GMC quality Control

So a 2011 Impala LT bought used with 40,000 miles on it and we get the Stabilitrac reducing engine power message across the driver info center while pulling out of the driveway to head to church on a clear Sunday morning. I'm reading this similar problem across multiple makes and it seems GMCs' response is "Not Our Problem Man" or better yet "Change Your Fuel" really you have a mass problem across multiple lines of vehicles and this is the best you can come up with? GMC, we are taking the vehicle back to were we bought it and will have them fix the problem (in my hopes by giving us a like priced vehicle from another manufacture) but I can tell you after 2 issues with your vehicles in a row (the other one being a 2006 Uplander) I will never buy another GMC product!! And I can assure you that the next time you ask Congress for a bail out I will vehemently rally against you and anyone who votes to help you out!

I am having the exact same problem with my 2011 Chevy Impala. While making a right turn and a semi is on my tail, I get the Engine Power Reduced, Check Stability Control, Check Traction Control messages. I could have be rear ended or worse.
