problem #4

Jan 012006

Impala 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 134,000 miles


The contact owns a 2000 Chevrolet Impala. The contact stated that the driver side seat leather was separating where the air bag was located. As a result, the air bag was visible. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where the technician informed the contact that the seat could not be repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 134,000.

problem #3

Side air bag/heated seat, closed the drivers side door and the air bag deployed on its own causing a really big bruise on my daughters side.contacted the G.M. dealership about it and was told that they would look into it and to not contact anyone else. Never heard anything back from them.then about a month later the passenger side seat started burning and it ruined the center console, seat, and carpet. No sense in contacting G.M. again because they are not going to do anything about it.someone will have to die before anything gets done to solve these problems that everyone is having and that G.M. will not solve!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a 2000 Impala ls and the rt side seat warmer over heated and almost caught on fire. My local Chevy dealership said they had seen several do this, but there's no recall. My husband unplugged it and remove fuse. Now the seat is all burned and cracking, looks very bad. Why wasn't there a recall on this? I've read where some people have had their seat to catch on fire and blaze up.

Impala 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 150,501 miles
Right passenger heated seat overheated and charred leather seat cover before I noticed a burning smell. I've removed fuse to this seat, but my seat is ruined. My local Chevrolet dealer said he has had three other GM vehicles to do this and even caught one man's coat on fire laying in the seat. But, he said there was no recalls on his records from GM. Now I'm stuck with a five or six hundred dollar repair bill if I have it fixed. I can't take fuse out for driver, S seat, as it also controls another function on car. Now I'm afraid it will overheat and I'll be burned like some of the others I've read about on the internet. See
