2006 Chevrolet Impala Recalls

Ignition Lock Cylinder Concern

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 install two 13mm key rings and key insert into the vehicle's ignition keys to correct this concern.

Left Front Seat Adjuster Mounted Improperly

The left front seat manual adjuster is not mounted in the proper location and could separate from its bracket in a crash. Dealers will inspect and replace the adjuster as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
