We bought our Impala new August 2007 with less than 100 miles, after only owning it for 2 years the engine light came on, we phoned the dealer and they told us not to worry about it until it began to flash, and soon after the message board was reading "reduced engine power" and by the end of the weekend it left us stranded. When they finely figured out what was wrong they told us a rodent had set up residence in the wire harness in which the very expensive extended warrenty didn't cover, We fixed it and in less than a year later we are facing the same thing once again, since the GM mechanics have no idea what else to call it they are blaming the rodents. SHAME ON YOU GM! NEVER AGAIN!
we took the car in to the dealer on April 26 2012 and they
report chaffed wires under intake manifold, dirty throttle body they replaced the seal at 14.25 gasket kit at 49.75 and labor 64.00 an hour for a total of 387.76 and Ecc charge for repair order of 10.00 GRAND TOTAL OF 400.96 this is unbelivable. The very next day the check engine light came back on being not so worried about it since this light has been on for over 3 years and they say nothing is wrong with it. 2 days ago my husband couldn't barely get home from the local store 4 miles from our home as the night mare comtinues. Tommorow morning we will be taking the car back to the dealer once again what will the excuse be this time, I need this car for my business I can't afford to be with out wheels. The best part of this store is we have to try and drive this car 60 miles one way to the dealer and we have that lovely costguard extended warranty which is in effect till August 2012 and hasn't covered any of this what an expensive lesson we have learned this car just turned 80,000 miles.
