Impala 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 144,000 miles
The contact owns a 2012 Chevrolet Impala. While driving approximately 25-30 mph, the service brake assist, ABS, and service traction control warning indicators illuminated as the vehicle came to an abrupt stop. The vehicle was towed to garber Chevrolet (1700 N. saginaw rd, midland, mi 48640) where it was diagnosed that the battery needed to be recharged and a loose ground cable needed to be repaired. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failures. The approximate failure mileage was 144,000. * consumer stated service traction control-service stabilizer-service brake assist came on and car stopped dead completely- car key in on position and car in drive. Had no power at all- had to manually unlock my door to get out. They had to tow the car to garage with my keys stuck in it. Flashers and nothing worked. Luckily no one smashed into me and if out on a main highway going at a higher speed I wouldn't be here to tell you about this. The car is fixed but my fears of it happening again are immense.
