The inside of the cars windows would fog and then ice up during last years winter. Could not see out the windows except small area of drivers side front window. Took into dealerships twice and they could not figure out why or fix it.

There is a very common problem with 2006-2013 Impala rear defrosters not working. Look on youtube and you will see the problem is very evident. GM/Chevy used a small bulkhead connector for the high current defroster wires located on the passenger side kick plate of the 2006-2013 Impala's that burns out. This really should be a recall due to a fire hazard. The "how to" fix on you tube looks like it will work, but this really should be addressed and fixed by GM. Inexperienced mechanics trying to fix this may get hurt, let alone increasing the electrical/fire hazard by improperly "fixing" the problem. GM is recalling their vehicles for everything else so why not fix a known problem? sad for people in winter climates not being able to see out their rear window due to this systemic problem associated with the Impala.
