Excess weight on the key ring can cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position without warning, turning off the engine. This defect can also affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. Dealers will provide two replacement key rings and key cover on all ignition keys to correct this concern.
On 130 vehicles, the driver's air bag may not deploy properly if needed in a crash. Also, the inflator could rupture.

The recall began March 11, 2003. The GM recall number is 03008.
2003 Chevrolet Impala Reviews
not impressed replaced trans cooler at 46000, transmission at 74000,ABS problems at 88000.
Our 03 is the second of three that we have owned new. The first was a 2000 and the third is a 2007. We love these cars. The ride is better than our sons Honda and the gas millage is 31 to 33 mpg on the highway. The roomy trunk was a factor in purchasing the first one. No major problems with them, except that the 03 needs the AC looked at, almost 84,000 miles on it.
