2009 Chevrolet Impala Problems

Erratic Shifting of the Automatic Transmission

The transmission pressure control solenoid may fail causing erratic shifting. Our technicians tell us that partial dis-assembly of the transmission is necessary to replace a failed pressure control solenoid.

Key Stuck in Ignition Lock Cylinder

The automatic transmission shifter may fail, or a wire may break near the shifter causing the ignition key to become stuck in the ignition lock cylinder.

Check Engine Light

There have been multiple reports of the check engine light illuminating. While there is no one solution, many of the codes associated with the check engine light are from the evaporation emissions or EVAP system. This may be addressed by tightening the gas cap and performing the appropriate drive cycle that can be found in the owner's manual.

2009 Chevrolet Impala Recalls

Passenger Frontal Air Bag Disabled Unintentionally

Wiring for the passenger side occupant detection system can be worn through by the passenger seat frame. This can cause the passenger side air bag to not operate properly in an accident, and additionally can cause the rest of the restraint system to fail. Dealers will double wrap the wires with anti-abrasion tape and replace damaged wires as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

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.

The Front Control Arms May Break on Impala Police Vehicles

On vehicles equipped with the "police" option package, one or both of the front lower control arms may fracture. A broken control arm can result in the loss of control of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace both front lower control arms to correct this concern. The General Motors recall number is 12104.

Said there are lots of internal computers. Few days after that, the ...

Overall it is a good car. Gas mileage with the 3500 engine is excellent. My issues have been sensors, ABS/Traction Control,and airbag sensor issues as well. I have 113,400 miles and it runs great. No issues other then the sensors.
