2006 SS rain management system failure
By tompmn on
2006 Chevrolet Impala SS 4dr Sedan (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
Our 2006 Impala SS leaks A LOT on the drivers side by the emergency brake every time it rains.
I inquired with my Chevy dealer and said my car leaks when it rains without providing details and the technician indicated the "rain management system" has failed.
He told me to look at the headliner and see if there is a water stain.
Sure enough there was.
I inquired if there was a recall and he said no, it will cost minimum of $500 to look at it and $135 hour to trace the leak.
All original equipment, no rust or windshield change.
This is our second Impala and i am extremely disappointed with Chevrolet Quality and their position.
I would not buy another Impala.
We like the exterior styling, the interior, very quiet and the engine (although you have to add 1-2 quarts betweeen changes, normal we are told).
More owner friendly help desk for the do it yourselfer versus prompt $500 to $1500 to repair.
Having bought the car new off the lot I am extremely disappointed with Chevrolet Quality, specifically the response.
Where I work we measure quality escapes in terms of Parts Per Million.
Unfortunately I got a lemon and Chevy is not interested in Continuous Improvement.
