problem #3

Dec 022007

Impala 3.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 63,007 miles

dealership had car for 2 days, told me I had to pick it back up and turn in

loaner, stated the computer did not read the problem and they could not

recreate the problem. Picked car up on 11-30-07 and broke down on

12-2-07. I am tired of the service dept telling me they cant find problem

and I am tired of being stranded, for a female this is not acceptable.

problem #2

Jul 042007

Impala C41099

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,000 miles

I am pissed off my car is not even paid off yet and I have replaced my ignition 2 times now come to find out it was the passlock that my vehicle is equipped with. So my car thinks I am stealing it and will not let me start my car. I can not pay anymore to have it fixed so if anyone knows what I can do that would be great. I thought maybe the problem was the aftermarket CD and speaker I put in my car. SO my boyfriend is trying that to see if that fixes the problem.

This has happened several times since purchased on 5/19/07 and can not find solution with dealership to the problem. I am tired of being stranded for 1-3 hours each time the car wont start.
