I have a question, I have the 2008 impala and the trans slips everyday. It started at like 10,000 miles, do you think a trans filter and maybe putting in that Royal Purple fluid would help. Thanks, crewchief4u
I have a 2008 impala ss. The transmission went out and was replaced with a certified chevy trans. Now; The transmission begins to slightly surge at 40 to 45mph. I can feel it and can see the tac jump. I have taken it back to Brown & Brown Chevrolet in Bourbonnais who told me that nothing shows up on their machine, they cannot drive it and duplicate it and that it ... Read More
I have already had to change my tires after just 22k on my 2008 Chevy Impala. I believe this car (specifically the one that I bought) has serious quality issues, and after 7 trips back to the dealer to fix a fuel sensor issue (which was never completely explained to me), this car now seems to eat tires. I just bought new ones, and I have put in a higher performance ... Read More
Read #384 in in the forum for cures besides the gas pedal. You might find the gas pedal isn't the problem and the cure could be a fast and inexpensive fix.
I am having the same problem, the transmission felt like it was slipping, then as I was excel-orating to pass a slower car my check engine light came on and said "engine power reduced" I took it to auto-zone to read the problem, they said it was the gas pedal...a sensor was missing, I was told the cost of the piece is about 75 and it takes about 1 hour to ...

I have a 2008 Impala LT, 83000 miles and at about 50,000 I went to the dealership for the same problem "Traction Control service" and ABS and reduce speed. It was pretty hairy while driving at highway speed and you go from 65 to 40 mph. Well the dealership changed the left wheel hub because they said the sensor was showing a fault. I think that bill was $650.... I'm getting ... Read More
I have a chevy 2008 impala and for some reason when i run around 50 mph especially going uphill it seems the motor skips or sputters...then when i hit 60 its fine again any idea what this could be? its annoying.
I too have started having this issue. Yesterday on my way to work, my 2008 Chevrolet Impala started slowing down and the REDUCED ENGINE POWER and SERVICE TRACTION CONTROL messages displayed. I then felt my rear tires spinning or something. I was afraid and didn't want to get on the highway so, I turned around and went back home. I dropped my car off at a GM dealer this morning and ...

Exactly what I am finding also. Many people with same complaint, both gear and tires. I contacted someone at GM and my reply just today, states that they cannot/will not help me because of the year and mileage. Bull! I will pursue this further.
chevyowner3, We're sorry to hear about these troubles you've been having with your Impala, as well as the communication difficulty you've experienced with our Customer Assistance Center. When you called, did they set up a Service Request (71-**********) for you? Please forward us that number or the last 8 digits of your VIN via email at firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief summary of the situation and we will check into what happened ... Read More
I am also an owner of an impala 2008. I am having the same problem you have. The first time my gear shift got stuck the dealer said the shift was not assembled properly at the manufactoring company. This happened at 35,000 miles. It happened again at about 73,000 miles. I do not want to take the car back to the dealership because I do not believe they are telling me ... Read More
I have a 2008 Chevy Impala and my car just started giving me the same issues. Did you get a solution from the dealers?
sandrakay, We can look into reimbursement, although we cannot guarantee what the results of our inquiry would be up front. Please email us at email@example.com with more details (including your name and contact information, the last 8 digits of your VIN and mileage, and a summary of the situation). Sarah, GM Customer Service
In November of 2009, I reported that the tires on my 2008 Impala, after approximately 24000 miles, had significant wear on both front and back tires to the point where they were unsafe to drive on for any distance. Initially, I had limited success with the dealer and not much better luck calling the Chevrolet complaint line. At no time did either acknowledge a general problem of this nature even after ...

I drove my 2008 impala to the local gas station last Thursday, got gas, returned to my car..only to find I could NOT shift out of park. No forewarning, no issues whatsoever prior to this. I had my car towed to the tune of $65.00 for a two block tow, left it at the dealership I purchased my car from. I then went home and got online and did my research. ... Read More
I recently bought a new 2012 Impala LS and am very happy with it so far. I like to read up on issues with my cars and often check the different forums to see what the latest issues are. I also own a 2006 Toyota Matrix and just had some recall work done. This is from TOYOTA: The ECM for certain 2005 through 2008 Toyota Corolla and Corolla Matrix models equipped ... Read More
I have had transmission slipping problems with both of my 2008 Chevy Impalas. They both have less than 70,000 miles on them. The same problem. Slipping when getting started. When it's cold it's happens more. Are these cars still covered by a warranty? Does anyone else have this problem?
Hello, Iím looking for a hybrid car, but the problem is that Iím 6í8Ē with a ridiculous 40Ē inseam. For most cars I sit in, my knees hit the wheel, and I canít angle my legs because then Iím hitting the brakes at an angle. Iím skinny and my torso is more normal size, so there isnít as much a problem with seat width or headroom. Iíve sat in a 2012 ... Read More
I have a 2008 Chevrolet Impala; I experienced this problem with the "reduced engine power" in July 2010. I took my car to the dealership and they fixed it, thankfully was still under warranty, BUT I still had to pay the $99.95 diagnostic fee. Now, here we are over 2 years later Jan. 2013, we are experiencing the SAME problem. I call the dealership and ask what's the warranty on the ... Read More

Thanks for the reply to my posting. I am glad that you have had good luck with your Impala. I am not anti Chevy, I also own a 2006 Cobalt LT that is probably the best car I ever owned. After my problem surfaced I spent hours on the Internet to find out whether or not mine was an isolated case. It is not, and if you are interested try the ... Read More
Chevy has looked into a rear alignment issue on late model Impalas. There may be a camber related issue causing premature wear on the inner edge of the rear tires. These issues are usually resolved by installing a camber bolt kit on the rear wheels and having them realigned.
I appreciate you reaching out, but all they will say is " it is low on antifreeze" I will ask them " antifreeze just doesn't evaporate, where did it go?" and they will tell me that they pressure tested the system and it tested good with no leaks. When I think about the other cars I have had and currently own that have not needed a drop of antifreeze added, and ... Read More
How is your car running now? Did replacing the pressure control valve and the valve body resolve it? I have a 2007 Chevy impala and it has random issue where it hesitates and then jerks forward from a stop and then again around 40 MPH. I took it to my mechanic and also transmission specialist. The first place took for a drive and encountered the problem, but it didn't send any ... Read More
Please keep us all posted if you hear anything. Of course my car is out of warranty and I am experiencing all the same symptoms as everyone else. I have an '06 Impala, never had any issues till this winter. When idling, my car is freezing cold. I added coolant and then it is fine. I also hear the gurgling by the dash after I shut my car off for only ... Read More
Just had my transmission worked on after having the symptoms like your car. I have a 2008 Chevy Impala LTZ and they replaced the pressure control valve and the valve body and that seems to have done the trick. It was under warranty.
I purchased a 2008 Chevy Impala LT on 12/26/08, from a dealer. The car had 15, 200+ miles. I also bought an extended warranty. I drove the car to Florida, drove it around there for four months and then back home to upstate New York. Except for a once a month spin of a few miles to keep the car clean and active, it sat in my driveway. I put a ... Read More
On November 4, 2012 I have dropped my 2008 SS Impala off at Jim McKay Chevrolet in Fairfax, VA. This will be the second time for the transmission. VIN #2G1WD58C989162178. Hard shifting shutter from a stop 1st to 2nd. Jim McKay said no codes and it didn't do it for them. It's doesn't do it all the time.
I strongly encourage all of you to look into the internal service memos offered by other customers throughout this forum involving the torque converter. There are defects in one of the impala drive trains. Mine happened to be one of them. I have a 2007 SS Impala that I will be selling as soon as it is repaired. The first sign of a problem with your transmission will be a slight ... Read More
I have read problems about my car that I have been experiencing but tonight I had to register and post about it I have a 2008 Impala SS. I bought it used from the chevy dealer with 70k miles in April 2010. It wasn't untill a week later i learned that it was a rental car. why a rental company would want a SuperSport is beyond me... It now has 91k ... Read More
I have a 2008 Chevy Impala LTZ with Dual heat and air controls. The drivers side heater will only blow cold air. I took it to the Chevy dealer and he said it will cost $715.00 to fix. Is this possible? Reading some of the post they are saying $50 part and an hour to fix....
Reference Case 211 Involving Impala Transmission. You had asked for information on my father's Impala Vin Number. 2G1WD58G479104784 You also asked me which dealership I had taken it to here in Knoxville. Unfortunately, since I brought daddy's car back to Knoxville in 2008, I have taken it to the two closest chevy dealerships to me and I have been very disappointed in the service departments of both of them. Once when ... Read More
I have a 2007 Impala SS that I kept when my father, who had been a chevy service manager for 50 years, passed away. I brought it back to my city in Knoxville and it has had the best servicing on transmission, engine, etc. since 2008. Now I find the transmission is beginning to slip and since daddy bought this in 2006 as a new 2007 model in August, even the ... Read More
Hello Hollywood 13. My 2008 Chevy Impala SS has the same symptons as yours. What did you find out was wrong with yours?
I have a 2008 Chevy Impala with almost the exact problem you had. The car only has 67,000 miles with an extended warranty. I called GM customer service after 2 trips to the dealer. They tried a 3rd time and couldn't duplicate the slipping transmission problem. They also denied that the service bulletin (06-07-30-023C) included the 2008 Impala. Could you please tell me where you received the information that includes the ... Read More
I brought this up with the dealer and Chevy Motor Division. There are a lot of people out there driving their cars with the A/C running and the weather does not call for it. The only solution you have is to put the blower control knob to off & turn the recirculating air switch to on. The A/C will not kick on. If you move the blower knob to a higher ... Read More
I just recently discovered this knocking sound in my 2008 Chevy Impala, I was told by a friend that this is something she heard in a similar car. Is this something that I can fix or is it best to have a mechanic do it? its started to get louder and sounds like now its in the venting and the dashboard! Help! Damsel (IN DISTRESS!!!)
So - is there any update / fix for this - I purchased my 2008 LTZ in December of 2011 - this is so far my only complaint - if I didnt love this car so much it would be a deal breaker - altho Im thinking of trading it in for a newer model where hopefully this irritating issue has been worked out. What a pain in the rear!!
I am also experiencing the "Reduced Engine Power" problem. After work today, I tried to start my 2008 Impala, but I kept getting the "Reduced Engine Power" message. The car starts, but shuts off immediately. I tried repeatedly to get the car to start and stay on, but had no luck. GM Roadside Assistance towed my vehicle to the nearest dealership, Tropical Chevrolet, but the service department was already closed. I ... Read More
We bought a 2008 Chevy Impala last spring from a dealership. The car only had about 23,000 miles, excellent condition inside and out. We noticed when checking the oil it was barely reading on the stick,so called dealership and they did not say much about it and changed the oil again. Then, it was very low again on stick and first thought " It's using oil because it was not leaking ... Read More
I have a 2008 Chevy Impala LT. I have had this car since October 2011. There was approx. 68,000 miles on it when I got it. Ever since I have had the car the dash has flashed 'Traction Control Malfunction' followed by 'Reduced Engine Power' then the check engine light would come on. I would pull over, turn the car off, and let it sit for at least a minute. When ... Read More

I bought a 2008 Impala a year ago. I have about 67,000 mls on it, and in the past couple of months I have had a lot of trouble keeping it on the road in wet conditions.

Update I made the signs for the car, my UNHAPPY CHEVY OWNER picket sign. I parked in front of 4 of the biggest Chevy dealer around. In 5 mins they came running out to talk to me, after 15 mins more talking total around 20 mins at each dealer They said they will make calls, then on to the next. I told them I was not mad at them they just ... Read More
Car dont leak any oil, no oil in cooling system, so must be burning it, even if you dont see it smoking out the exhaust. the dealer said the plugs were dry ! To me if its being burned up by the heat in the catalytic converters, they must be caking up inside. I have read by others that they seam to notice more oil consumption closer to the time of ...

Too much BS going on ! My 2008 Impala will suck the oil pan dry long before its due for a oil change. Same story taking car in for 20 min sit & wait, to check oil every 500 miles. The wife drives it to work 80 expressway miles round trip a day, plus her other shopping so almost 100 miles a day. Its sitting at the dealer day 2 now ... Read More
Same problem. Brought a 2008 Chevy Impala for a more reliable car. After 50,00 miles. Service Traction problems. I have to shut the car off for 1 minute. Then it drives fine. But whenever the street is wet . Forget about it. Also something with the suspension eats up tires quick. Just brought tires a year ago and may need new ones. I have always been a chevy guy. But after ... Read More
I'm in the same boat. I figured they would have gotten this fixed by now. I owned a 2005 Impala and it did the same thing. They said it was air back then, and fixed it, but it came back after awhile. I traded the car. Now I have a 2010 Impala, and it is doing the same thing. I read about the coolant being low, so I just went out ... Read More
I have a 2008 50 Aniversary Impala that has the same problem I read about here. I noticed on long trips, I was using a great deal more oil than in city driving, once running nearly dry. My dealer now has me on the familair consumption test, but has already documented the heavy usage each time I return from a trip. I have even taken it to Chevy dealers in the ... Read More

My 2004 Impala with 137,000 miles is getting the valve body repaired to fix the 1-2 shift solenoid and the code P1811 hi pressure fixed that causes the trans to shift hard thru all 4 gears.

Having the same thing going on with my 2008 Impala LS at 42,000 miles. If I turn the fan speed up (with the outside air option LED lit) and press the snowflake (to kick on the compressor) it doesn't make the knocking noise. Switch the air from outside air to recirculate and I hear the knocking noise from under the dash. Eventually the noise stops (after 30-45 seconds). When I turn ... Read More
Had the same thing happen to my 2008 Chevy Impala LS with 42,000 miles. Tires were rotated regularly every 6K miles. Noticed the inside and outside of all the tires was wearing out, tread in the middle looked good. Was told a few months back at the Chevy dealership the tires were out of balance, charged $45 to re-balance the tires. Didn't make much sense to me. Had a flat tire ... Read More
I bought a used 2008 Chevy Impala LT and liike it so far. I do have a question. Now that it is getting colder I notice that if I turn the heat control knob to anything less than 3/4 of the way from the HOT setting that the air temp cools down pretty quick. Is this normal and what might be wrong and possible fixes. does that knob control the water ... Read More
I have a 2008 Impala and this has happened twice. I was on the highway and the engine dropped from 60 mph to 20pmh. VERY SCARY!!! I was told the problem was fixed and then it happened again today.

On May 31, 2011 a Chevy Dealer in Tampa, FL "repaired" the rear alignment issue on my 2008 Impala (36,000 miles) by grinding down the rear struts. The Chevy folks charged me $255.00 for the realignment. At first they were not going to reimburse me for the repairs, but after a letter to Mr. Ackerson, and the submission of a class action suit, the Customer Service people in Detroit decided to ...

I figured out his thing. The little button thing on the dash is oriented mostly straight up. When the sun gets down to about 20 degrees or less ( like when you are driving to work or home, it dims. Problem with that is that now you are being blinded by the sun and now you can't see your dash instruments or your radio. It is actually a safety problem. I ... Read More
This is how my problems with my Chevy Impala started and it was in the summer ,so the cold had nothing to do with it, First it started with radio not working sometimes,then radio would stay on when door open and have to manually turn it off,rear defroster quit working,chiming when you take key out,then my battery started going dead,A 2008 car,a new car that I am paying 450 dollars a ...

Iv'e read several posts on this issue w/the 2007 Impala 3LT (3.9L) and wanted to add my .02 cents :) We bought the Impala which was a lease my wife had for 3yrs. 40,000miles and no issues at the time we bought it. We chose NOT to by the extended warrantly as it was insanely expensive and was only 12months. Ironically enough the transmission started slipping 1 month after purchase. Usually ... Read More
Thank you. The balancer has been replaced and everything seems fine. Your post solved the problem for me. I really appreciate the fact you posted it or I'd still be fighting to get this fixed. Now all I have to do is finish dealing with Chevy to get them to pay me back since it was their faulty part that caused this. Thanks again!!
I will contact my dealership, Bowman Chevrolet, and get more details.
The belt was not the problem on my 2008. It was a loose hamonic balancer which drives the belt. The dealership can access the problem listed in the Chevy database.
I purchased my 2008 Chevy Impala LT in May of 2008. Within a couple of months, the Check Engine light came on due to an emissions sensor. I figured cars aren't perfect, so I had it serviced. It have been to the deal 7 times within 17 months of owning this car. I have had it. It happened 4 times in the first year, and I would have qualified for a ... Read More
Doesn't sound like that bad of a deal. You have to consider that the car was sitting for well over two years on that dealer lot though. I guess you can argue that you will still get the full warranty and everything. I'm assuming you bought it "new" and not "used"? My mother is in the market and it is a toss up for Impala or Ford Fusion. I used to ... Read More
I have a 2008 Impala LS with 55000 miles.........and when I back out of my driveway in the mornings and shift out of reverse into drive and press on the gas, it doesnt move and hesitates for a couple seconds then jerks when it catches 1st gear. After the car is warm, it wont do it anymore. Does anyone know the cause of this problem or what needs to be replaced? ... Read More
My shift lever locked up in Park and won't release. Shift lever release button will not depress. It sounds like it may be torque locke, but this thing is stuck solid, won't budge. Tried everything recommended in the owner's manual, pushed it, etc. I'm stuck and there's no-one at Chevy to help me. Car has 25k miles and is otherwise fine. I have no clue...any suggestions? Thanks.
Yes the Impala for 2010 was to be built on the same platform as the new 2010 Camero , it to was to be rear wheel drive sharing the same drivetrain. There hasn't been any news if a redesigned Impala will happen, they need to do something as the 2008 Malibu has stolen fifty percent of their sales. It's the only large affordable car GM has in it's lineup. If a ... Read More

I just drove a rental 2008 white Chevy Impala LT with about 4300 miles on it for two weeks in New England on vacation. Put about 700 miles on it.

I have not read ... Read More
Can you fold down part of the back seat or only all of the back seat? The Chevy video shows that you can flip up part or all of the seat and then shows folding down the whole back to have the back seat completely flat. I want to know if you can fold down only one of the backs so that someone can still sit in the back seat but ... Read More

As far as the CD Changer is concerned, Chevy offers a CD Changer that is integrated into the head-unit as an option. There is no reason the dealer could not order this part and install it in place of your current head-unit. If it was the dealer that installed the Pioneer in the trunk, they took the cheap way out.

How do I OR can I somehow lease a 2008 Impala Ruby Red w/ Sun Roof and 6 CD Prem Sound package--believe it is an LT2??? How do I lease for 36 months for under $330 ??? Is it possible---with no down ???? I am dreaming--right???? Oh yes==I have a 2006 Trailblazer to turn in and my miles are up but lease not until Oct 2008.
It's beeen a couple years since I bought my 2006 2LT and I was curious about the current model year prices, options, etc. When I went to the Chevy website to use their build option, I discovered a new model--the "LT 50th". Granted, it's just a trim difference from the 2LT, but it does offer one interesting feature as standard equipment: the FE3 Performance-Tuned Suspension. Does anyone have any information regarding ... Read More
Hi lew. This car's lease payment will vary depending upon what its MSRP and selling price are. You never mentioned what either of these prices are in your post, so I will have to make some assumptions in the sample lease payment that I work up for you.

You make it sound as though Stabilitrak was added to address an alleged handling problem with the Impala. It is not just the SS models, or only the Impala, that received standard Stabilitrak for 2008. GM has added it as standard equipment on many of the 2008 models. If the handling of the car was truly that dangerous in the snow, Chevrolet would either be voluntarily recalling all Impalas to address ... Read More

Car_man, Thanks again for your help. Lisa
Hey Lisa. GMAC's current base lease rate and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2008 Chevrolet Impala with 12,000 miles per year are 2.35% and 55%, respectively. General Motors is currently providing $300 lease cash and $1,000 bonus cash on this model. Car_man Host Prices Paid: Buying & Leasing Experiences Forum
Car_man, I am looking for an Impala lease again and was hoping you could help me with some information. I am interested in a 2008 Chevy Impala LS lease for 36 months/36,000 miles. I will be leasing in Nevada if that matters. Could you tell me the residual? Base lease rate/buy rate? Any lease cash available? Thanks for all your help, Lisa
Though it hasn't happened yet, it looks like I may be saying goodbye to my 2000 Impala (which also means I may be moving on from this forum). I started posting here back in early 2000 after I'd ordered my Impala and was curious as to how long it took from ordering to delivery, and I've been here ever since. The car has almost 114k miles on it now, and it's ... Read More
I am looking at a Chevy Impala LTZ as a possible next car. How do people like their LTZ's specifically and what kind of real world mileage are you getting on 2007s or 2008s with the active fuel system. Thx!
Yeah you do have a point here, but only thing is that the 2008 malibu has grown in size to that of almost the current impala. For GM to have three sedans such as the malibu, impala and caprice would not be smart. GM was in serious financial difficulty and still is to some extend because it had too many models that did the same job as the next for example, ... Read More
I agree with this to a point but you also must remember that if GM refreshens a car to quickly it won't last long enough and they won't see profits come from it as they could. Every five to six years is good for one style seven at the max with minor refreshening in between. Look at the chevy lumina 1995-2001 chevy impala 2000-2005 and now 2006-2009 or 10 for the ...

I posted a view of the 2008 Taurus on the Taurus forums, but I'm going to put it here, too. Personally, I think the lack of Hyundai dealerships in the hinterlands is going to nix that choice for a lot of people. Ford dealers are everywhere. I was pretty impressed by the new TaurusHundred. I just returned from a 2500 mile 'test drive' (Avis rental) of a 2008 Taurus SEL. My ... Read More
Ok, if you go on the Chevy website and read on the 2008 Malibu... Side Curtain Airbags are STANDARD so when the Impala is released Chevy is putting Side Curtain Airbags in that standard also; which neither the Dodge nor Ford corporations offer. GM will be the first American auto company to offer Side Curtain Airbags standard on all vehicles by 2010... cool huh
I am not the person you responded to, but just wanted to add some comments. I agree with you that RWD can work just as well in the snow as FWD. I drove my '99 Camaro in some pretty heavy unplowed snow and had no issues. It is all about HOW you drive, not necessarily what you are driving. RWD with good all-season or winter tires and driven sensibly will be ... Read More
The 2008 Impala is already posted on Chevy's website and it is the same as the 06-07 except for some changes to the trimlines and options and prices. I can't imagine Chevy would do a 2008 run and then make changes within 6 months. It can take longer than that to retool the plant for such changes, and the current Impala is selling very well for Chevy. I recall reading at ... Read More
