Impala LS 3.5L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 62,137 miles


Why or why won't GM fix this simple problem when it's pretty an every car thing. Everyone I know who owns an Impala have the exact same problem: damn sun visor won't stay in place!

Impala LT

  • Automatic transmission
  • 58,000 miles

Tired of the sun visor flopping down in traffic and blockimg my view. If it went against the windshield like you would put it if you lowered it, no problem. But no, it just flops in front of your eyes. I've tried adding tape to make them tighter, and I've tried velcro but it doesn't stick.

Impala LT 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles

Visors will not stay up. Drop to the point that a sudden stop would impact your face/forehead with the edge of the visor. Dealer wants $350.00 to replace the visors. They say that is the only fix! OUTRAGEOUS!! My Family has owned chevy products since the 1951 Chevy I remember. NEVER ANOTHER CHEVY!

Impala SS V8

  • Automatic transmission

This was a problem for Camry and Toyota stepped up and took care of it. There is a safety factor if an accident occurs you can be struck in the face by the edge of the visor because it does not stay in place. This is an issue that is not mileage related.

Impala SS

  • Automatic transmission
  • 23,000 miles

Extremely disappointing... this has been a problem since before the vehicle warranty ran out; unfortunately, I didn't get my car in for service until about 5 weeks after the 36 months ran out!! The price to repair this annoying problem is absurd; I feel that since its a known defect they should fix it!!! My car still has only around 37thousand miles on it, and I've owned it since Dec. 21, 2005. GM is advertising this new image, and proud that they've paid back their bail out, they should show some loyalty to LOYAL Chevrolet customers (my husband and I own FOUR Chevys, and it was 5 until just recently.. we sold a 1995 Camaro). I want to find out who I can contact to get this extremely annoying problem taken care of.

Impala LT 3.9L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 35,000 miles

This is a real problem with this series of Chevrolet Impalas. I have researched it thru the Internet and many folks are seeing this issue. It has to be replaced thru a Chevy parts dealer who will rape you for a defective part of which they have full knowledge.

This is the LAST GM product I will ever own.
