Summary of Complaint

THE DOOR BLEND ACTUATORS GO OUT CONSTANTLY. THE CAR HAS THREE OF THEM. WHEN THEY GO BAD, THERE IS A LOUD CLICKING OR KNOCKING SOUND BEHIND THE DASHBOARD AND THE AIR CONDITIONER AND HEATER STOP WORKING. IF IT'S COLD, IT BLOWS COLD AIR AND IF IT'S HOT IT BLOWS HOT AIR. I HAVE REPLACED AT LEAST 20 ACTUATORS. ONCE THEY GO BAD, A NEW ONE LAST ONLY A FEW MONTHS, WHICH MEANS THERE IS A DEEPER ISSUE. THE DEALER SAYS CHEVY IS AWARE OF THE PROBLEM AND IT IS A WELL KNOWN ISSUE; HOWEVER, THEY HAVE NOT ISSUED A RECALL, DEALER COULD NOT QUOTE A PRICE BECAUSE THEY WON'T KNOW WHAT IS WRONG UNTIL THEY GET IN THERE. DEALER SUSPECTS CHEVY WON'T ISSUE RECALL BECAUSE THE WHOLE SYSTEM IS FAULTY AND WILL COST THOUSANDS PER CAR TO FIX.

MULTIPLE TIMES I HAVE REPLACED, THE INNER AND OUTER TIE RODS, LL 4 WHEELBEARING ASSEMBLY, SWAY BAR LINKS, CONTROL ARMS, CV AXLES. I HAVE TO REPLACE BRAND NEW TIRES EVERY 6,000 10,000 MILES BECAUSE THE MECHANICAL FAILURES ARE WEARING ON THE RUBBER SO RAPIDLY AND AL WAS AND UNEVENLY. I HAVE NEVER NOT HAD A N ISSUE WITH THIS VEHICLE AND HAVE PUT MORE MONEY IN REPAIRS THEN THE PAYMENT, WHICH ARE MORE THAN WHAT I OWE STILL ON THE REMAINDER (FINANCED). ALSO, THE TRANSMISSION IS FALILING RAPIDLY. I HAVE REPORTED PRIOR ISSUES PRIOR TO THIS DATE. I CANNOT JUSTIFY REPAIRING, MAINTENANCE OR EMERGENCY, A VEHICLE THAT IS LESS THAN THE VALUE OF THE REPAIR COST. GM SHOULD BE ASHAMED AND PUNISHED FOR SUCH CRIMES AGAINST CONSUMERS.

Consumer Location: SACRAMENTO, CA
VIN: 2G1WG5E36C1****

Summary of Complaint

THIS VEHICLE, IN EARLY NOVEMBER 2019, AT APPROXIMATELY 41,000 MILES BEGAN MAKING A "POPPING" NOISE FROM THE PASSENGER-SIDE FRONT SUSPENSION/STEERING AREA, PRIMARILY WHILE TURNING LEFT (AND SOMETIMES WHEN TURNING RIGHT). THE NOISE BECAME PROGRESSIVELY WORSE OVER A ONE MONTH PERIOD. SUSPECTING IT MAY BE A DEFECTIVE TIE ROD END (PASSENGER SIDE), I INSPECTED THE VEHICLE (ON 12/21/2019) AND FOUND THAT THE STEERING KNUCKLE (AT THE STEERING KNUCKLE ARM - WHERE IT ATTACHES TO THE PASSENGER TIRE ROD) WAS FRACTURED/BROKEN, CREATING A MAJOR SAFETY PROBLEM (THE STEERING KNUCKLE IS FRACTURED AT THE TIE ROD KNUCKLE ARM, AND THEREFORE IT APPEARS POSSIBLE THE STEERING KNUCKLE COULD SHEER OFF AT THE TIE ROD, RESULTING IN TOTAL LOSS OF STEERING CONTROL). THIS VEHICLE HAS NEVER BEEN IN AN ACCIDENT, OR HIT ANY CURBS, POT HOLES, OR SIMILAR ITEMS. I FIRST NOTICED THE PROBLEM WHILE MAKING A 90 DEGREE LEFT-HAND TURN AT APPROXIMATELY 15 MPH, ABOUT 500 FEET FROM MY RESIDENCE (WHILE DRIVING HOME). THE ISSUE/NOISE HAS GOTTEN PROGRESSIVELY WORSE SINCE THEN, AND BASED ON MY INSPECTION LAST NIGHT IT IS VERY OBVIOUS THAT THIS VEHICLE IS NOT SAFE TO DRIVE. IT APPEARS THAT THE STEERING KNUCKLE WAS MANUFACTURED INCORRECTLY (IT'S AN ORIGINAL GM PART, WHICH APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN MADE OF CAST ALUMINUM). FROM MY ONLINE RESEARCH, IT ALSO APPEARS THAT A LOT OF OTHER 2000-2013 CHEVY IMPALA OWNERS ARE HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM AS ME. THIS VEHICLE, IN MY OPINION, NEEDS TO BE RECALLED FOR THIS SAFETY ISSUE (BAD STEERING KNUCKLES). ALSO, THIS IS A CALIFORNIA VEHICLE WITH ZERO CORROSION ISSUES. ALSO, I WORK AS AN ACCIDENT/CLAIMS INVESTIGATOR FOR A MAJOR AUTO INSURANCE COMPANY (AND THEREFORE HAVE SIGNIFICANT KNOWLEDGE OF VEHICLES, COLLISIONS, ETC). THIS VEHICLE IS (BY ALL OBJECTIVE STANDARDS) IS UNSAFE TO DRIVE, AND GM SHOULD BE REQUIRED TO ISSUE A RECALL (IN MY PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL OPINION).

Summary of Complaint

RECENTLY MY CAR MAKES A POP OR LOW CLICKING NOISE WHEN I TURN THE STEERING WHEEL TO THE LEFT. I'VE LOOKED INTO AND SEE THERE WAS A RECALL ON THE MODEL IN 2012 BUT I HAVEN'T FOUND ANY RECORDS OF MY CAR BEING REPAIRED. I WANT TO KNOW IF MY CAR CAN POSSIBLE BE REPAIRED SINCE THE RECALL FALLS IN LINE WITH A PREVIOUS RECALL. IT HAPPENS WHEN I TURN ALMOST FULL TO THE LEFT WHILE IN MOTION, WHETHER I GO FORWARD OR BACK IT MAKES THE NOISE. I WANT TO KNOW IF I CAN GET THIS REPAIRED FOR FREE. THE CAR HAS BEEN DOING THIS SINCE JUNE 2019 AND I'VE OWNED IT SINCE MAY 2016. I HAVEN'T TRIED TO GET IT FIXED MYSELF DUE TO FUNDS AND I'M WORRIED SOMETHING DANGEROUS MAY HAPPEN AND I HAVE A KID, SO I WANT TO BE SAFE. I ALSO WANT TO KNOW IF IT WAS EVER REPAIRED FOR THE FIRST RECALL

Summary of Complaint

1ST - 8/11/2018 - 79,653 MILES - CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON, CODE P0411 SECONDARY AIR INJECTION SYSTEM INCORRECT FLOW DETECTED. DEALERSHIP STATED THE SOLENOID MALFUNCTION CHECK ENGINE CAME BACK ON, CODE P0411, CHEVROLET STATED THE SECONDARY AIR INJECTION SYSTEM IS FUNCTIONING AS DESIGNED AND RESET THE CODE. CHEVY'S STATED THE FAULTY SIR INJECTION SOLENOIDS BANK 1 AND 2 WAS THE CAUSE OF THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CODE P0411. ADVISED ME THAT THE BATTERY TERMINAL MAY BE THE ISSUE AND RECOMMENDED CHANGING IT. RECOMMEND A NEW ALTERNATOR. CHEVY WAS UNABLE TO VERIFY THE CODE P0411 BUT MADE A RECOMMENDATION FOR THE ISSUE. CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME BACK ON AGAIN, NO OTHER ISSUES WITH THE VEHICLE AT THAT TIME. GM OPENED A TAC CASE. ADVISED BY TAC THAT CARBON BUILDUP IN THE CYLINDER VALVES FROM THE CYLINDER HEADS WAS THE CAUSE. TOLD TO DRIVE VEHICLE FOR A FEW DAYS. WITHIN 3 DAYS CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME BACK ON. CHEVY INSTALLED A VEHICLE DATA RECORDER PER THE GM FIELD SERVICE ENGINEER. TEST RESULTS SHOWED BOTH AIR INJECTION CUT OF VALVES NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. FUTURE ALSO UPDATED ECM CALIBRATION AND PROGRAMMED IT - COVERED UNDER WARRANTY. 6TH VISIT ON 9/3/2019 AT 85970 MILES CHEVROLET ADVISED THE CAUSE IS DUE TO THE LEFT TEMPERATURE CONTROL AND AIR INLET ACTUATORS. 7TH - 9TH TIME, ADVISED BY INDEPENDENT AUTO REPAIR SHOP, THAT EVERYTHING WAS WORKING AS NORMAL. CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CODE WAS RESET. ADVISED CAR NEEDS TO BE CALIBRATED AT GM-APPROVED DEALERSHIP. AS OF TODAY, THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT REMAINS ON. THE FINAL SHOP ADVISED THE ISSUE MAY BE THAT THE SYSTEM WAS NOT CALIBRATED OR JUST NEEDED TO BE CALIBRATED EVERY TIME THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON. I BELIEVE THAT THOUSANDS OF GM CUSTOMERS ARE PAYING OUT OF POCKET FOR UNNECESSARY P0411 REPAIR WORK.*DT*JB

Summary of Complaint

ABOUT 2 MONTHS AGO THE ENGINE STARTING DIESELING (THE ENGINE WILL STILL HAVE COMBUSTION AFTER THE IGNITION WAS TURNED OFF). DURING A TRIP ON CITY STREETS THE ENGINE SUDDENLY STOPPED WHEN DRIVING. I WAS ABLE TO PUT THE CAR IN NEUTRAL AND RESTART THE ENGINE. ABOUT 15 MINUTES LATER THE ENGINE STOPPED AGAIN THIS TIME WHILE STOPPED ON A TRAFFIC LIGHT. I COULD NOT RESTART THE CAR. I HAD IT TOWED TO THE AUTOLAB IN PLYMOUTH MI WHERE THEY DIAGNOSED IT WITH ENGINE FLOODING. YOU COULD SMELL THE UNBURNED GASOLINE ON THE TAIL PIPE. HOWEVER NO ERROR CODES WERE REPORTED. AFTER A FEW DAYS IN THE FACILITY AND WITHOUT THE EVEN DUPLICATED I HAD THE CAR BACK. COUPLE WEEKS LATER IT STARTED DIESELING AGAIN SO I WENT BACK TO THE AUTOLAB. THIS TIME THEY WERE ABLE TO DIAGNOSE THE INJECTION PUMP AS BEING FAULTY AND THE O2 SENSOR NOT BEING ABLE TO CONTROL THE FUELING. THEY REPLACED THE INJECTION PUMP AND SINCE THEN THE VEHICLE IS RUNNING WITHOUT PROBLEM. THE LACK OF ERROR REPORTING BY THE OBD AND THE SUDDEN ENGINE STOP WHILE THE CAR WAS IN MOTION MAKES ME FEEL I WAS LUCKY. I USUALLY DRIVE 30 MILE EACH WAY TO MY WORK PLACE. IF THE ENGINE STOPS ON THE HIGHWAY IT WILL CAUSE AN ACCIDENT AS I AM NOT ABLE TO USE THE BRAKES (POWER BRAKES!) OR THE STEERING WHEEL (POWER STEERING) PROPERLY TO TRY TO GET AWAY FROM THE TRAFFIC BEHIND BY GOING TO THE SHOULDER.

Summary of Complaint

SINCE 2017, UPON STARTING MY CAR I GET ALL OF THE FOLLOWING ALERT MSGS "SERVICE STABILITRAK", *SERVICE BRAKE ASSIST" AND "SERVICE TRACTION CONTROL" ON MY DASHBOARD. I'VE HAD THE CAR INTO LES SCHWAB AND ERROR CODE DIAGNOSTICS DONE BOTH BEFORE AND AFTER BOTH FRONT HUB ASSEMBLIES WERE REPLACED. THE SAME SERVICE MESSAGES STILL CONTINUE TO APPEAR ON THE DASH. LES SCHWAB HAS CHECKED THE HUB SENSOR WIRES REPEATEDLY AND ALL ERROR CODES AND FIND THEM TO BE OK. THEY FIND THE CAR TO STILL HAVE A CRUNCHING NOISE COMING FROM THE FRONT END OF THE CAR, MOST MARKEDLY WHEN TURNING THE WHEEL TO THE LEFT, BUT CAN ALSO BE HEARD WHEN THERE IS A DROP IN ELEVATION, AS WHEN EXISTING A PARKING LOT INTO A SLIGHTLY LOWER ROADWAY. ON JUNE 14,2019, WHILE THE CAR WAS IN MOTION AND TURNING RIGHT AT A STOPLIGHT, THE SAME SITUATION OCCURRED AS HAS WHEN I MAKE A LEFT TURN. THE CAR SUDDENLY ACTED AS THOUGH THE BRAKES WERE BEING APPLIED VERY HARD AND THEN THE CAR HALTED BRIEFLY WITH TRAFFIC BEHIND ME AS THOUGH IT WOULD STALL OUT. I APPLIED THE ACCELERATOR TILL I FORCED THE CAR TO MOVE AROUND THE CORNER AND AFTER ABOUT A MINUTE OF FIGHTING BRAKING RESISTANCE, I WAS ABLE TO REGAIN NORMAL 40 MPH SPEED WITH THE FLOW OF TRAFFIC. THIS OCCURRED ON DRY PAVEMENT WITH NO PRECIPITATION. OUTSIDE TEMPERATURE WAS AROUND 100 DEGREES. BEST DRIVING CONDITIONS WITH NO ROUGH ROADWAY. LES SCHWAB SAID THE PROBLEM WITH THE HUB SENSOR AND LEFT TURNING IS A KNOWN PROBLEM TO THEM AND SAID THEY WISH IT WOULD BE MADE A RECALL ITEM AS IT IS A COMMON PROBLEM NOW. I DON'T FEEL SAFE DRIVING THIS CHEVY IMPALA. LOVE MY CAR BUT WON'T TAKE A CHANCE ON PURCHASING SAME MAKE AND MODEL. I WASN'T SO SURPRISED WHEN RESEARCHING THESE ISSUES ON THE INTERNET TO FIND HUGE NUMBER OF OWNER'S HAVING THE SAME PROBLEMS.

THE ACTUATOR HAS FAILED IN THE CAR, A SMALL ELECTRICAL MOTOR THAT MOVES THE TEMP DOORS OR THE RECIRCULATION DOOR.

Summary of Complaint

2/16/2019 (SAT 3:30PM) : SUDDENLY LOST POWER WHEN DRIVING AT 70 MPH ON HIGHWAY 99 NEAR FRESNO, CALIFORNIA. FELT LIKE NO GAS COMING IN. ENGINE WAS STILL ON, BUT GAS PEDAL SEEMED TO PUMP NO GAS TO THE ENGINE. PUMPING THE GAS PEDAL HAD NO ACCELERATION RESPONSE. SPEED CONTINUED TO DROP ON THE HIGHWAY, VERY DANGEROUS! FINALLY, LUCKILY PULLED OVER TO THE SHOULDER WITHOUT MISHAP. ENGINE WAS STILL ON WHEN STOPPING BY THE SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY, KIND OF IDLING AT LOW RPM. SHUT OFF THE ENGINE AND TRIED TO RESTART IT TO HOPE FOR THE PROBLEM TO GO AWAY. CRANKED A DOZEN TIMES AND COULD NOT TO GET ENGINE TO CONTINUE. FELT LIKE RUNNING OUT OF GAS. 2/17/2019 SUN: THE CAR WAS FINALLY TOWED TO A NEARBY DEALER. 2/18/2019 MON DEALER SERVICE DIAGNOSIS REPORTED BROKEN "FUEL FLOW CONTROL MODULE". THE ESTIMATE OF ITS REPAIR (PART + LABOR) IS NEAR $500 I HAVE ASKED THE REPLACED MODULE TO BE SAVED FOR INVESTIGATION. SUMMARY: SUDDEN FAILURE OF THE FUEL FLOW CONTROL MODULE THAT COMPLETELY CUTS OFF THE FUEL WITHOUT A FAIL-SAFE DESIGN, NOR A WARNING, FOR A PART NOT IN THE REGULAR MAINTENANCE LIST, PARTICULARLY AT LOW MILEAGE (42,000) EXPOSES DRIVERS TO HIGH RISK OF ACCIDENTS ON THE HIGHWAY. ACTION REQUESTED: IT MAY BE A QUALITY-ESCAPED ISSUE ON SUCH A MODULE. FAILSAFE DESIGN IS NEEDED FOR 21 CENTURY HIGHWAY SAFETY. I ASK NHTSA TO REQUEST GM TO INVESTIGATE THIS CASE TO DETERMINE THE CAUSE OF SUCH SUDDEN FAILURE OF FUEL FLOW CONTROL MODULE ON A LOW-MILEAGE CAR.
