Summary of Complaint

MY CAR OCCASIONALLY MAKES A TICKING NOISE FROM THE DASH. THIS COMES AND GOES PERIODICALLY. IT STARTS WHEN I OPEN THE DOOR (ANY DOOR) AND CONTINUES FOR ABOUT A MINUTE. IN THE PERIOD WHEN THIS NOISE COMES AND GOES THE DOORS WILL AUTOMATICALLY LOCK, I.E. IF I STEP OUT OF THE CAR (RUNNING OR NOT) AND SHUT THE DOOR IT WILL AUTOMATICALLY LOCK EVEN IF I DID NOT HIT THE LOCK BUTTON AND EVEN IF I DO HIT THE UNLOCK BUTTON. TWICE THIS HAS OCCURRED WHEN THE CAR WAS RUNNING AND MY DOG WAS IN THE VEHICLE (ALONG WITH MY PURSE AND KEYS) CAUSING ME MUST DISTRESS. I BELIEVE THIS IS SOMETHING FAULTY IN THE MAKE OF THE CAR. BY THE TIME I GET TO A DEALERSHIP TO HAVE IT CHECKED OUT THE CLICKING HAS STOPPED OR IT IS NOT LOCKING AUTOMATICALLY. THE DEALER SAYS IT HAS TO BE HAPPENING WHILE THE NOISE IS ONGOING. THERE ARE NO LIGHTS ON THE DASH TO INDICATE A PROBLEM. THIS FIRST STARTED ABOUT A YEAR AGO AND THE MOST RECENT INCIDENT WAS TODAY (THE DATE LISTED BELOW). THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

Summary of Complaint

MY 09 IMPALA LTZ HAS ALREADY HAD A BLOWOUT ON THE DRIVER'S SIDE FRONT DUE TO A GOUGING AROUND THE ENTIRE DIAMETER OF THE INSIDE OF THE TIRE. I CHECKED THE PASSENGER SIDE AND THERE WERE WIRES SHOWING ON THAT TIRE, AS WELL AS THE SAME GOUGING. THE REST OF THE TREAD WAS FINE ON THE FRONT TIRES. THE TIRES WERE REPLACED AND THE CAR WAS ALIGNED. THIS PAST WEEKEND, JUST BEFORE MY WIFE LEFT IN THE CAR TO HEAD ON A 350 MILE TRIP, I HAPPENED TO NOTICE THAT, AGAIN, WIRES WERE SHOWING ON THESE TIRES, ALSO. UPON FURTHER INSPECTION, I NOTICED THAT THESE TIRES ALSO HAD THE SAME GOUGING TO THEM. I CHECKED THE REAR TIRES AND THEY HAVE THE SAME GOUGING, ALTHOUGH NOT AS BAD AS THE FRONT. THE STRUT PLATE, ATTACHED TO THE STRUT JUST ABOVE THE TIRE, IS ABOUT A HALF OF AN INCH ABOVE THE TIRES. IT IS EASY TO SEE WHERE THE TIRES HAVE RUBBED THESE PLATES AT ALL FOUR CORNERS OF THE VEHICLE. I HAVE READ ONLINE OF OTHER IMPALAS WITH THE SAME PROBLEM, WHERE PEOPLE HAD CUT OR BENT THE STRUT PLATES, BUT THIS IS SOMETHING I WOULD RATHER NOT DO. *TT

Summary of Complaint

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: I HAVE A 2009 CHEVY IMPALA WITH 100,000 MILES ON IT. THE 1ST TIME THIS ISSUE HAPPENED, I WAS DRIVING SLOWLY, ON A SIDE STREET, IN JULY 2019. OUT OF THE BLUE, THE FOLLOWING WARNINGS APPEARED: ENGINE POWER IS REDUCED, SERVICE STABILITRAK, SERVICE TRACTION CONTROL. IMMEDIATELY MY CAR STARTED RUNNING HORRIBLY (IT DIDN'T WANT TO GO, WAS CHUGGING, AND ALMOST FELT LIKE THE TRANSMISSION WAS SLIPPING). I PARKED IT. LATER I STARTED IT AND ALL WARNINGS WERE GONE, BUT THE ENGINE LIGHT WAS ON. . THE NEXT DAY I STARTED IT AND JUST THE ENGINE LIGHT WAS ON. 3RD DAY I STARTED IT, ENGINE LIGHT STILL ON. DROVE IT TO A SHOP,.RIGHT BEFORE I PULLED IN, THE LIGHT TURNED OFF! THEY SCANNED IT ANYWAY & SAID THAT NOTHING CAME UP. THE CAR HAS DRIVEN JUST FINE, NO WARNINGS OR LIGHTS UNTIL 11/25/2020. I WAS DRIVING ABOUT 20MPH, TURNED RIGHT ON A SIDE STREET AND ALL OF A SUDDEN ALL OF THE EXACT MESSAGES AS BEFORE CAME ON. VEHICLE IMMEDIATELY STARTED RUNNING SLOW AND "CHUGGING"AGAIN. I PARKED IT. WHEN I STARTED IT AGAIN LATER, ALL THE SAME MESSAGES WERE STILL THERE. IT'S DEFINITELY SCARY WHEN THIS HAPPENS & SINCE THE 1ST TIME IT HAPPENED, I WAS NERVOUS TO DRIVE IT FAR BECAUSE I WASN'T SURE WHEN IT MAY HAPPEN AGAIN. I WENT ON A CHEVROLET FORUM & READ THERE WAS A RECALL FOR THIS ISSUE. I WAS VERY PLEASED ABOUT THAT. I PUT IN MY VIN & IT STATED THAT THERE ARE NO RECALLS. SO I CALLED GM THIS MORNING. THE REP SAID THEY'RE AWARE OF THIS ISSUE, BUT THERE IS NOT A RECALL FOR IT. SHE THEN SAID THAT IT WOULD'VE COVERED BY SPECIAL WARRANTY BUT UNFORTUNATELY THAT WAS UNAVAILABLE AS OF APRIL 2019! HER ADVICE WAS TO TAKE IT TO A CERTIFIED DEALERSHIP AND HAVE IT CHECKED AND FIXED SOON FOR MY SAFETY! I ASKED WHY THERE ISN'T A RECALL, IF IT'S A KNOWN ISSUE AND SHE SAID I COULD TALK TO A CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE MANAGER AT THE DEALERSHIP AND MAYBE THEY COULD DO SOMETHING FOR ME. PLEASE HELP!

DROVE ABOUT 5 MILES DOWN THE ROAD, THEN CAR SUDDENLY DIED. WAS ABLE TO PULL OVER TO SIDE OF THE ROAD (WITH THREE SMALL CHILDREN IN THE VEHICLE), TRIED TO RESTART THE CAR BUT DISPLAY SAID "STARTING DISABLED, SERVICE THROTTLE". WAITED ABOUT 5 MINUTES AND CAR RESTARTED. WAS ABLE TO DRIVE HOME, NO REDUCED POWER BUT CHECK ENGINE LIGHT REMAINED ON. I HAVE SEEN MANY COMMENTS ONLINE FROM OTHERS WHO OWN SIMILAR GM VEHICLES THAT HAVE HAD SIMILAR ISSUES. WE HAVE ALSO HAD SIMILAR ISSUES WITH OUR 2011 SUBURBAN, ALTHOUGH NO STALLING. THERE SHOULD BE AN IMMEDIATE RECALL FOR ALL 2008 - 2011 GM VEHICLES TO REPAIR THIS ISSUE, MOST LIKELY ACCELERATOR PEDAL POSITION SENSOR.

WHILE DRIVING, THE CAR IN MOTION IT COMPLETELY LOSES POWER. HAVE EXPERIENCED THIS WHILE ON HIGHWAY, INTERSTATE, AND IN TOWN ROADS. SO PROBLEM OCCURS AT ANY SPEED, AND RESULTS IN VEHICLE COASTING TO A STOP AS THE STEERING AND BRAKES STOP WORKING TOO. HAS HAPPENED TO ME HUNDREDS OF TIMES AS WE CAN NOT PIN POINT PROBLEM, AND HAS REPLACED NUMEROUS DIFFERENT PARTS TRYING TO SOLVE IT. WHEN POWER LOSS OCCURS THERE IS VERY LITTLE TO NO TIME AT ALL FOR DRIVER TO COAST & STEER VEHICLE & OCCUPANTS TO SAFETY AREA ON SIDE OF ROAD. THE DASHBOARD INFORMATION CENTER WILL STATE "STARTING DISABLED, SERVICE THROTTLE" ALSO ENGINE POWER REDUCED" AND "SERVICE STABLITRAK." A NEW THROTTLE HAS BEEN PUT IN VEHICLE AND STILL DOES SAME THING. OVER THE YEAR IVE BEEN DEALING WITH THIS ISSUE IVE NOTICED IT DOES IT MORE IN WARM WEATHER. AFTER VEHICLE COAST TO A STOP AND IS PUT IN PARK AND TURNED OFF, WAIT 5 TO 10 MINUTES THEN VEHICLE WILL START UP AND NO INFORMATION OR LIGHTS DISPLAY IN DASH CENTER, LIKE IT NEVER HAPPENED.
