Chevrolet Impala Recalls
The passenger frontal air bag may be disabled, and additional damage may occur causing a short in the air bag system, resulting in the loss of all air bag and seat belt pretensioner functionality. This is due to air bag system wiring becoming damaged by the passenger front seat frame. Air bags and seat belt pretenionsers that fail to operate can increase risk of occupant injury in a crash.
Engine oil could leak onto the exhaust manifold, causing odor and a possible fire hazard.
The passenger side front air bag may stay active with a child safety seat installed due to a failure of the occupant sensing system which shuts it down when working properly. This can cause injury to a child riding in the front passenger seat.
The engine may leak oil from the valve cover at the top of the engine. This could increase risk of a fire and cause a burning odor.
The rear brake pads may stay partially applied after releasing the parking brake. This can result in brake overheating.
Reduced brake performance due to parking control module failure.
The chassis electrical module may short internally causing the vehicle to stall. This would increase risk of an accident.
The mechanism that applies the parking brake may not release fully when disengaging it. The brake pads can stay applied and overheat, causing a fire hazard.
The air bags may not deploy in a crash because of a software error set from the factory.
The center storage console may not stay latched in an accident.
