My complaint concerns my 2007 chev Impala transmission floor shifter is locking in park.. I could not depress the button on the floor shifter, to shift to reverse. I tried turning the steering wheel which of course is locked when the vehicle is in park. I am worried that next time it will not get unstuck. So I checked the internet and saw many comments about 2007 Impala shifter's locking and realized I needed to file a complaint.

While driving car started to jerk and hesitate the check engine light came on along with a message of reduced engine power. Could not drive the drive over 5 mph. Was able to get to the side of the road. Had to push the car into a parking lot as the engine will no longer start but cranks over fine. Had to buy a scanner to read the code because the car was not able to drive to a auto repair shop or auto parts store to read the codes. The PO641 code was set. Checked and tested the sensor wires for the 5volts every one that I tested showed ok. Replaced the gas pedal assemble because of the code that could be a source of the problem no difference. Cleaned the throttle body unit no change car will not start.checked and gave all the wires a good pull and or tug to wiggle the connectors and took apart all sensor connections no corrosion was found.all grounds appear to be good. No broken wires are found no blown fuses were found.after 2 days was able to start engine with the message reduced engine power and car died again and would restart but not idle. Was able to rev engine and keep it running but once it idled it would die and sometimes not restart again.at this time car is unsafe to operate on any roadway because it might die and random times.

The heat only blows warm air during acceleration. Once idle, the warm air turns ice cold. My car went to the dealership multiple times to be repaired and every time, it would work properly for a few days then go back to not working. After the 3rd "fix" (the "fix" was something different every time), the dealership told me I just must know not how to work my heat because I "keep breaking it". this is a known issue on this vehicle and even the dealership does not know how to correctly repair the problem!!

The vehicle failed to shift into park. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where the technician diagnosed that there was a broken wire in the BTSI solenoid terminal which needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired by re wiring the ground wire to the shifter where the pin had broken. On May 3rd the key got stuck in the ignition and would not come out. Let the car sit for 24 hours the battery died and the key released out of the ignition. Took the car to the dealership on May 5, 2014 and the shifter wires were re constructed. Car still acts as if the shifter is not going to shift.
