2000 Chevrolet Impala Owner Comments

problem #5

Nov 172014

Impala 6-cyl

  • 120,275 miles


The vehicle accelerated by itself as I was turning into a parking space, the engine revving so loudly a person stopped and observed the collision as the Impala crashed into a parked vehicle directly in front of it on the other side. Nothing would stop the acceleration except manually forcing the car into park.

Impala 6-cyl

As I was driving home from work I accidentally went through a red light and T-boned the other car. Although no one was hurt, there was extensive damage to both cars. My concern is the airbags never went off. I have always thought this was strange. Now that I'm hearing about the Impala recall due to faulty airbags it raises more concerns, because now this is my sons car. My understanding is the 2000 Impala's are not part of the recall but maybe they should be. There is absolutely no reason those airbags should not have deployed. Now I'm am concerned if my son is ever in an accident he will not have the airbags as a safety net. Should the 2000 Impala's be part of the recall also?

I have a 2000 Impala that has the rear strut towers beginning to rust out badly. There has been no incident yet as I caught this on one of my vehicles inspections. If this were to rust completely out the rear tires could come off of the car while in motion. I have tried to contact General Motors, but got no response. This defect renders to car pretty much useless. Thanks for you time.

The car makes a popping (in the structure) sound upon stopping, starting and turning corners very load, annoying, and frequent.
