2003 Chevrolet Impala Owner Comments

2003 Chevrolet Impala has problems with radio equipment. The cd would not eject. The consumer was told the radio was linked to other safety features on the vehicle and if a repair attempt was made by anyone other than GM it may permanently disable the features.

Radio has very bad reception. Have taken care to dealership and they have replaced new radio with reconditioned radios twice. First replacement radio, display did not work properly. Second replacement radio was not calibrated properly when installed and when taken back to the dealership and re-calibrated, had the same problem with the display as replacement radio number one. I now supposedly need a new dimmer switch. (am taking to another dealership in the hopes that they can repair the problem) the fog lights constantly have excessive condensation. Am told by the dealership and GM that this is normal however I have had several people tell me this is not normal. Have not observed this type of condensation on any other vehicle's fog lights. GM will not repair or replace unless there is standing water. GM refused claim. There is an extremely loud popping and cracking noise from the dash. Temp outside does not seem to matter. Am told by the dealership that they are aware of the problem but have no fix. The cracking noise is very distracting when driving. It comes suddenly and with no warning and sounds like something hard striking the windshield.
