My 2006 chevy impala chimes when i accelerates on gas what does that mean i had to replace the power steering hose twice and the ac when i ture off or on it makes a clicking noise after a minute or so it goes off. Help!!!!

We bought the car new, now has 49K miles. It came with bad alignment, no sign of it until the tires wore out at 25K miles.
The remote control failed after four years. The dealer said they put in bad modules until March of 67. The dealer wanted
$650 to repair, had it done at a car alarm shop for $160.
The steering shaft started clunking at around 40K miles, haven't had it repaired. The car has a decent ride, it gets around 30 mpg on the highway, 18 in town.

the side of driver no fuction the heat
and rarely i came my house and let the car and its no start after, at 6 hour of city.

I love my impala but, I had to replace turn signal arm twice.If the arm damage your lights will not work. There is a problem with Dex coolant. It mess up intake manifold gaskets. Had to replace the computer four years after buying the car. There was no recall from GM due to the coolant. Why I don't know.

Never have looked back no regrats. I love her. It is now 2013 I have never kept a car this long. But she will be witj me til I die.
