problem #2

Dec 312003

Impala 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,900 miles
Consumer complained about acceleration problems. The vehicle accelerated even though the foot was off the accelerator pedal. This happened 5 times in the past years. The accelerator only did this when the car was running for over 30 minutes. Previously, the engine could run for over 2 hours before this would happen. The car was in the shop 3 times, and the dealer had not been able to find the cause of the problem. Dealer performed a diagnostic test. But this did not lead to any information. They cruise control module was replaced after testing was done. The dealer suggested that consumer bring the car I when this problem occurred. Consumer contacted GM. They would document the claim and the vehicle 's history and that was all they could do. Consumer took the vehicle to 2 dealerships, and neither could find the cause of the problem.
