Chevrolet Impala Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Chevrolet Impala

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.

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.

The speedometer or other instrument panel gauge may begin to work erratically at times. Our technicians tell us that the instrument cluster must be sent to a repair facility to correct this fault.

A software failure in the parking brake system has resulted in incomplete disengagement of the parking brake pads from the rotors, causing excessive brake wear and heat leading to a potential fire hazard. Increased heat in the brakes limits the ability to stop effectively, and accelerating under braking can cause damage to the transmission. Dealers will reprogram the braking module with new software to remedy the problem.

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.

I've had nothing but problems with this car! It is the worst car I have ever had/owned in my life! First week I had it I had problems with the transmission. Then, you would thinkt hat was enough, the car has been over heating like mad crazy. 6 thermastats, water pump, several flushes, and the car still overheats! Check engine light pops on and off constantly. I can't drive over 10 minutes aw...

I have already had to replace rear driver side power lock acuator and now the front passenger side power lock acuator is bad. $230 for eah repair. first one was covered under warranty. Very expensive and pretty upset this has happened to 2 windows and car has less than 50,000 miles on it.

I bought this car new. Now has 60k miles on it, & it has been FLAWLESS ! I wouldn't even think about getting a Toyota again, after the crappy one I had before this car.
