DRIVER'S SIDE BACK DOOR LOCKING MECHANISM WILL BECOME STUCK, AND DOOR WILL REMAIN LOCKED DESPITE ATTEMPTING TO UNLOCK IT WITH THE KEY FOB OR MANUALLY. FIRST NOTICED WHEN THE DOOR WOULD NOT UNLOCK AFTER BEING PUT IN PARK AFTER DRIVING APPROXIMATELY 10 MILES. OTHER DOORS UNAFFECTED, AND REAR PASSENGERS WERE ABLE TO EXIT VEHICLE VIA PASSENGER SIDE BACK DOOR. ONLY SOLUTION APPEARS TO BE REMOVING THE INTERIOR DOOR PANELING TO ACCESS THE LOCKING MECHANISM.

Summary of Complaint

THE WIPERS HAD ICE ON THEM AS WELL AS THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE WINDSHIELD ON 01/25/14 A WEEK AFTER I BOUGHT MY CAR. THE DEFROSTER HAD BEEN ON ALL THE TIME DURING MY DRIVE HOME, ABOUT 1 HOUR. I HAD TO STOP A NUMBER OF TIMES TO KNOCK THE ICE OFF THE WIPERS AND SCRAPE THE WINDSHIELD. IT HAPPENED AGAIN ON 04/03/14 WHEN I WAS DRIVING HOME FROM THE MPLS AIRPORT. I HAD PUT ON NEW WIPERS AFTER THE FIRST INCIDENT, YET THESE WIPERS ICED UP AS WELL. I AGAIN HAD THE DEFROSTER ON, SOMETIMES IT WAS FULL BLAST. I TOOK PICTURES OF THE WIPER BLADES ON THE 4/3 DRIVE. I SHOWED THEM TO THE DEALERSHIP AND THEY SAID THE DEFROSTERS WERE WORKING FINE. TO ME THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE. ALSO THERE IS TERRIBLE ROAD/WIND NOISE. I HAVE RECORDED IT. I HAD ALL THE WINDOWS UP, NOTHING WAS TURNED ON AND THE NOISE IS TERRIBLE. EVEN WHEN AT A STOP, YOU CAN HEAR THE NOISE OF THE PASSING CARS 2 OR MORE LANES AWAY. THE DEALERSHIP SAID THEY COULDN'T DO ANYTHING FOR IT. THEY ARE WORKING WITH ME TO TRY TO RESOLVE THE ISSUE. SO I HAVE NO COMPLAINTS ABOUT THE DEALERSHIP, BUT WITH THE CAR. I AM THINKING OF TAKING IT TO A BODY SHOP AND SEE WHAT THEY THINK OF THE ROAD/WIND NOISE. I EVEN WEAR EARPLUGS IF I HAVE TO GO VERY FAR BECAUSE I CAN'T STAND TO LISTEN TO THE NOISE. I USED TO LOVE TO GET IN THE CAR AND JUST DRIVE, WITH NO RADIO ON, I DON'T IN THIS CAR. IF YOU WOULD LIKE A PICTURE OF THE WIPER BLADES OR LISTEN TO THE NOISE IN MY CAR I CAN SEND THOSE TO YOU. *TR

RESEARCHED AND FOUND 100'S OF REPORTS OF THE SAME ISSUE WITH THE IMPALA AND SIMILAR COMPLAINTS IN THE LIGHT TRUCK AND SUV MODELS. FIX IS RELATIVELY INEXPENSIVE IF YOUR MECHANICALLY / ELECTRICALLY INCLINED AS INVOLVES SPLICING IN A NEW WIRE HARNESS FOR THE ABS SENSOR. SAID HARNESS IS ABOUT $20 IT SHORTS OUT DUE TO INSUFFICIENT GAUGE OF WIRE USED ON ORIGINAL FACTORY INSTALL. REPLACE HARNESS HAS MUCH STURDIER GAUGE FROM WHAT MY RESEARCH SAYS. REPAIR SHOP QUOTED $700 TO REPAIR GLAD I TOLD THEM TO PUT IT BACK TOGETHER. THEY HAVE A FLEET OF IMPALAS AS LOANERS SO THEY KNOW THEY ARE GOUGING PEOPLE WHEN THEY SAY REPLACE WHEEL HUB ASSEMBLY ABS SENSOR AND WIRING HARNESS WHEN THEY KNOW IT'S THE ABS SENSOR PERIOD. CHEVY NEEDS TO DO A RECALL. ISSUE HAPPENS WHEN CAR IS IN MOTION AFTER TURNING OR GOING OVER A BUMP WIRING THAT HAS BEEN WORE THRU DUE TO PLACEMENT OF WIRING IN A HIGH FRICTION AREA, WIRE WEARS THROUGH COATING EXPOSES WIRING THAT SHORTS OUT AND SENDS CODES TO COMPUTER CONCERNING ABS STABILTRAK AND TRACTION ASSIST CAUSES VEHICLE TO BEHAVE ERRATICALLY OTHERS HAVE REPORTED CAUSED VEHICLE TO STALL AND NOT RESTART UNTIL PROBLEM CORRECTED. I'M SURE THEY ARE GOUGED FOR A THOUSAND $ OR MORE. WET ROAD CONDITIONS,EXTREME HEAT OR COLD,LEFT TURN WHILE BACKING, JARRING BUMPS, ALL TRIGGER THE DASH TO LIGHT UP LIKE CHRISTMAS TREE DINGING ALARM GOES OFF STEERING SHUDDERS POWER IS REDUCED. IT'S A HUGE DISTRACTION AND SAFETY CONCERN FOR SO MANY TO BE EXPERIENCING GM SHOULD STAND UP AND TAKE CARE OF THE PROBLEM.

Summary of Complaint

WITH NO WARNING THE ENGINE OF MY CAR HAD A CATASTROPHIC FAILURE. DUE TO DEFECTIVE TIMING CHAINS AND GEARS. KNOWN TO BEING PROBLEMATIC AND BREAKING AROUND 85,000 MILES. MANY ON LINE COMPLAINTS WITH THIS ENGINE, BUT GM WILL NOT ACKNOWLEDGE IT AND DO A SAFETY RECALL. IT IS A SAFETY ISSUE BECAUSE WHEN MY ENGINE FAILED THERE WAS NO WARNING LIGHT TO ALERT US TO A PROBLEM. THE CAR WAS RUNNING FINE AND IT MADE A CLANGING NOISE ALONG WITH A THICK CLOUD OF BLUE SMOKE.. WE WERE LUCKY TO GET THE CAR OFF THE SIDE OF ROAD BEFORE GETTING REAR ENDED. TIMING CHAINS ARE NOT A REGULAR MAINTENANCE ITEM. THEY ARE SUPPOSE TO LAST THE LIFE OF MOTOR. IF THEY ARE FAILING AT 85,000 MILES OR LESS WHY ISN'T A SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE LISTED FOR IT. OUR CAR WAS REGULARLY MAINTAINED AT 4,000 MILES WITH SYNTHETIC OIL. I DID NOT USE A CHEVY MAINTENANCE MECHANIC I USED A MECHANIC WHO HAS CLOSE TO 50 YEARS EXPERIENCE. JI CALLED GM UP TO EXPLAIN WHAT HAPPEN THEY SAID THERE WAS NO RECALL AND I CAN'T GO BY ON LINE FORUMS. THEY WANTED ME TO TOW THE CAR TO A CHEVY GARAGE FOR A DIAGNOSTIC TEST. I ASKED THEM IF THEY CAN HAVE A MECHANIC COME TO WHERE MY CAR IS, BECAUSE I COULDN'T AFFORD ANOTHER TOW AND IT WAS PRETTY OBVIOUS THE ENGINE FAILED. THEY REFUSED. I WAS NOT EXPECTING TO REPLACE A MOTOR AT 85,000 MILES WHEN MOST IMPALAS GO 200,000 MILES. AFTER ON LINE RESEARCH THERE WAS MANY COMPLAINTS ABOUT THIS ENGINE WITH TIMING CHAINS AND ALSO A CLASS ACTION SUIT WITH DIFFERENT MODELS, BUT SAME ENGINE. I HAVE NO MONEY TO REPLACE AN ENGINE AND I SHOULDN'T HAVE TO.

Summary of Complaint

UPON USING THE KEY FOB TO LOCK OR UNLOCK DOORS, OR JUST OPENING AN UNLOCKED DOOR, A LOUD CLICKING SOUNDS STARTS FROM UNDER THE DASH AND CAN LAST FOR A COUPLE OF MINUTES AND SHIFT SIDE FROM DRIVE SIDE TO PASSENGER SIDE AND BACK. THE A/C NOR HEAT WORKS WHILE THE CLICKING SOUND IS MADE. WHEN YOU CHANGE SETTING FROM A/C TO HEAT, THE CLICKING SOUND STARTS AGAIN. INITIALLY, AFTER THE CLICKING SOUND STOPPED, THE A/C AND/OR HEAT WORKED FOR DRIVER AND PASSENGER SIDES. NOW, AT TIMES, NEITHER THE A/C NOR HEAT WORKS. IF EITHER WORKS, IT IS ONLY ONE SIDE AND IT SHIFTS AS TO WHICH SIDE WORKS. BOTH SIDES NO LONGER WORK AT ONCE. DRIVER AND PASSENGER HAVE SEPARATE A/C AND HEAT CONTROLS. THIS HAPPENS WHEN THE CAR IS OFF AND THERE IS NOT A KEY IN THE IGNITION. ALSO HAPPENS WHEN CAR IS ON, WHILE IN DRIVE AND IN PARK, STATIONARY, MOVING, TURNING, STOPPED, ETC. ALWAYS MAKES THE CLICKING SOUND WHEN UNLOCKING AND LOCKING DOORS. NOT FOB RELATED BECAUSE CLICKING SOUND HAPPENS WHEN MANUALLY UNLOCKING AND LOCKING DOORS. THIS HAPPENS WHEN THE KEY IS NOT IN THE IGNITION. (OTHER IMPALA OWNERS HAVE TOLD ME THEY ARE HAVING THE SAME ISSUE) THE CLICKING SOUNDSTARTED ABOUT 3 YEARS AGO AND WOULD HAPPEN OCCASIONALLY. NOW IT HAPPENS EVERY DAY, EACH TIME THE DOOR OPENS AND AFTER TURNING THE CAR OFF. IF WE ARE UNSURE IF DOORS ARE LOCKED AND USE THE KEY FOB TO LOCK, THE CLICKING STARTS AGAIN.

THIS HAPPENED BEFORE AND I HAD THE VEHICLE SERVICED UNDER WARRANTY, A LITTLE OVER 1.5 YEARS AGO. IT'S NOW HAPPENING AGAIN. COUNTLESS REPORTS ON FORUMS INDICATE THAT IT'S A VERY COMMON ISSUE WITH THE WIRING HARNESS GOING TO THE HUB ASSEMBLY. GM SHOULD RECALL THIS.

Summary of Complaint

I HAVE HAD PROBLEMS WITH STEERING CONTROL IN THIS VEHICLE EVER SINCE I BOUGHT IT FROM SERPENTINI CHEVROLET IN STRONGSVILLE, OHIO. CHEVROLET SERVICE DEPARTMENT REPLACED THE LEFT FRONT HUB AND BEARING ASSEMBLY ON 6/9/16 AT 34,770 WHEN THE CAR WAS STILL UNDER WARRANTY. ON 8/3/18, WHEN THE VEHICLE WAS OUT OF WARRANTY AT 60039 MILES, THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT TOLD ME THAT THE STEERING GEAR WAS LEAKING AND IT WOULD BE AN $1829.50 REPAIR. THE SYMPTOMS I AM EXPERIENCING NOW ARE THE SAME AS WHEN THE CAR WAS UNDER WARRANTY AND NOT REPAIRED CORRECTLY. IT MAKES A SCRAPING OR GRINDING NOISE WHEN YOU TURN. IF I ADD POWER STEERING FLUID, THE PROBLEM GOES AWAY, WHICH LEADS ME TO BELIEVE THAT THIS WAS THE PROBLEM ALL ALONG. I CHECKED ONLINE AND IT SEEMS TO ME THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE HAVING THIS SAME ISSUE WHICH USUALLY ONLY GETS IDENTIFIED AFTER THE CAR IS OUT OF WARRANTY. I BELIEVE GM SHOULD BE REQUIRED TO DO A RECALL BEFORE SOMEONE HAS A SERIOUS ACCIDENT.
