Summary of Complaint

REAR WINDOW DEFOGGER-- WHEN WE HAD A RECENT SNOW STORM (ONE OF MANY), I USED MY REAR WINDOW DEFOGGER (DEFROSTER) ONLY TO FIND OUT IT WASN'T CLEARING THE WINDOW OF FOG OR MELTING THE BLOWING SNOW. THIS PREVENTED ME FROM SEEING THE VEHICLES BEHIND ME EXCEPT FROM MY SIDE MIRRORS. THE LAMP ON THE CONTROL LIGHTS NORMALLY, BUT THERE IS NO VOLTAGE GOING TO THE REAR DEFOGGER GRID CONNECTORS (ON EACH SIDE OF WINDOW). THERE IS NO SEPARATE FUSE GOING TO THIS DEVICE, ONLY A RELAY IN THE FORWARD FUSE BOX. THE PROBLEM TURNED OUT TO BE A BURNT PIN ON THE LARGE CONNECTOR BLOCK UNDER THE KICK PANEL ON THE PASSENGER SIDE. AS A NEW CONNECTOR (BOTH HALVES) WOULD BOOST THE COST FROM $261 TO $411, AT THE DEALERS SUGGESTION, I HAD THEM JUMPER THE WIRE FROM EACH SIDE OF THE CONNECTOR INSTEAD OF REPLACING THE CONNECTOR. (AS THIS CONNECTOR IS THERE FOR ASSEMBLY PURPOSES ONLY, WHY NOT JUMPER IT.) I BELIEVE THIS PROBLEM WAS DUE TO EITHER A POOR CONNECTION OF THE PINS DURING MANUFACTURING (HIGH RESISTIVE CONNECTION) OR IMPROPER SIZED PINS THAT ARE NOT HEAVY ENOUGH TO CARRY THE CURRENT. AS THIS CONNECTOR IS NOT NORMALLY ACCESSIBLE TO THE OWNER/OPERATOR AND DOES NOT MOVE, IT IS NOT A "WEAR ITEM" AND THUS WAS A MANUFACTURING ISSUE. MY SERVICE WRITER TELLS ME THAT THIS HAS HAPPENED ON AT LEAST ONE OTHER IMPALA THAT HE HAS SEEN IN HIS GM SHOP. WHY ISN'T THIS POWER GRID FUSED AS IT USED TO BE IN EARLIER IMPALA'S? IS THE PIN THE PROPER SIZE FOR THE CURRENT GOING THROUGH THE PIN? THIS NEEDS TO BE CHECKED OUT BEFORE IT CAUSES A FIRE IN A CAR. I HAVE A PHOTO AVAILABLE OF THIS CONNECTOR IF NEEDED. THE OLD CONNECTOR AND PINS ARE STILL IN MY CAR. *TR

Summary of Complaint

WITHOUT WARNING, THE POWER STEERING "WENT OUT" ON MY CAR AS I WAS DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD. I SENSED THE STIFFNESS IN THE STEERING, WAS ON A VERY STRAIGHT ROAD, AND WAS ABLE TO SLOW THE CAR AND BRING IT TO A STOP. HAD I BEEN ON A ROAD WITH CURVES, I WOULD MOST CERTAINLY HAVE HAD A BAD ACCIDENT. I HAD THE CAR TOWED TO A DEALERSHIP FOR REPAIR, AND WHEN I PICKED IT UP I NOTED THIS ON THE DESCRIPTION: "CUSTOMER STATES CAR HAS NO POWER STEERING. CAUSE: IMPROPERLY SEALED. " FURTHER: "DIAGNOSE AND REPLACE SPLIT POWER STEERING COOLER PIPE HOSE AND PER BULLETIN 060232014." I DON'T KNOW IF THIS IS A REFERENCE THAT IS STRICTLY "HOW TO REPAIR THIS PROBLEM" OR IF THIS INDICATES THAT THIS IS A NOTED PROBLEM. IF SO, IT SHOULD BE A RECALL! MY CAR HAS LESS THAN 30,000 MILES AND HAS BEEN DRIVEN VERY CONSERVATIVELY. IF THIS PROBLEM HAS OCCURRED WITH ANY FREQUENCY, THEN IT IS A DANGEROUS CONDITION THAT REQUIRES A RECALL. WHEN THE POWER STEERING GOES OUT COMPLETELY AND WITHOUT WARNING, AND YOU'RE ON THE EXPRESSWAY OR A ROAD WITH CURVES, A SERIOUS TRAFFIC ACCIDENT IS BOUND TO OCCUR. *TR

Summary of Complaint

According to my obd scanner the components that are failed is the throttle body position sensor circuit A & the throttle body position sensor circuit B. Before this happened the check engine light was on for about a week, when I scanned the vehicle with the obd-II the code for a large leak in the fuel EVAP system came up. One day while driving the vehicle I was stopped at a red light and once the light turned green I pressed the gas and the car started to sputter and move very slow also in the driver information center it intermittently showed the warnings service traction control and speed reduced. I had to pull over when safe to do so. Once I got the vehicle home I ran the scan again and it came up with the throttle body position sensor codes. The part is available for inspection. The safety of me and my passenger were in jeopardy we could've definitely been in an accident because it was so sudden when it happened. I have not taken the car to a dealer but an independent mechanic has looked at it. Vehicle has not been inspected by anyone other than me and an independent mechanic. This was a very scary experience and I have seen many forums with the same issues from GM cars. Your attention is needed and appreciated.

AS MANY OTHER 5.3 LITER GM VEHICLES DURING THIS PERIOD, MY CAR HAS BEEN BURNING OIL, FOULING SPARK PLUGS, AND THROWING CHECK ENGINE LIGHTS FOR MANY YEARS DUE TO THIS ALL-TOO COMMON ISSUE. IT IS A SAFETY HAZARD, AND ALL GM VEHICLES WITH THIS MOTOR ISSUE SHOULD BE RECALLED AND FIXED. IT POSES A SERIOUS HAZARD WHEN YOU ATTEMPT TO PULL OUT INTO THE ROAD AND THE CAR SPUTTERS AND MISFIRES AND YOU HAVE NO POWER BECAUSE OIL IS SEAPING PAST THE RINGS.

Summary of Complaint

I WOULD LIKE IT DOCUMENTED THAT SOMEONE IS GOING TO BE SERIOUSLY INJURED OR KILLED ALL DUE TO A KNOWN AND REPORTED ISSUED UNLESS CHEVY DOES THE RIGHT THING AND ISSUES A RECALL IMMEDIATELY! I HAVE A 2006 IMPALA AND WHILE DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY AT 70 MILES PER HOUR MY VEHICLE DROPPED DOWN TO 15 MPH SAYING REDUCED ENGINE POWER THEN COMPLETELY SHUT OFF ON THE HIGHWAY. PLEASE NOTE MY 2 YEAR OLD SON, AND 10 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER WERE IN THE VEHICLE WITH ME. I WAS FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO MAKE IT OFF TO THE SIDE WITHOUT BEING HIT MUCH LESS KILLED BUT OTHER PEOPLE NOT MAY BE SO FORTUNATE. WHAT IS IT GOING TO TAKE FOR A RECALL TO BE ISSUED?

Summary of Complaint

SUNROOF EXPLODED. SEVERAL YEARS AGO, I WAS DRIVING ON A SUNNY DAY, AROUND 70 DEGREES. IT WAS A 2-LANE HIGHWAY, AND THERE WERE NO VEHICLES NEARBY IN EITHER DIRECTION, NO TREES NEAR THE HIGHWAY, AND THE ROADWAY WAS CLEAR. I WAS DRIVING ABOUT 55-60 MPH. THERE WAS A SUDDEN LOUD CRACKING SOUND, AND SEVERAL SECONDS LATER A LOUDER BANG. I STOPPED AND FOUND THE SUNROOF WAS IN TINY PIECES. FORTUNATELY, THE INSIDE COVER WAS CLOSED, SO THE AMOUNT OF GLASS COMING INTO THE CAR WAS FAIRLY SMALL. I NO LONGER OWN THIS CAR. I'M NOT LOOKING FOR ANY KIND OF HELP ON THIS. I JUST RECENTLY BECAME AWARE THAT THIS IS A FAIRLY COMMON ISSUE, AND SIMPLY WANTED TO REPORT IT. THE DATE BELOW IS A GUESS, MIGHT EVEN BE A YEAR OR TWO OFF.
