Pros

Comfortable ride; roomy interior; huge trunk and folding seatback; available front bench seat; lots of standard features for the money


Value Writeup

The Chevrolet Impala is a favorite with fleets, offering a roomy, conservative sedan design that's been kept updated with modern features and options. For interior space it's still one of the best vehicles in its class, with room in back for three adults and a front bench seat available. Chevrolet also claims that the Impala is unique in its segment with the ability to fold the backseat forward for large items. Ride comfort and overall quietness are also strengths. The Impala offers a lot of features for the money.


Model Highlights

The Impala is a roomy, front-wheel-drive 4-door sedan that comes in LS, LT and LTZ models. All trims include a standard 3.6L V6 engine that features variable valve timing, is flex-fuel compatible, and makes 302 horsepower and 252 ft-lb of torque. It is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission, which allows it to hit 30 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA.

With a rather conventional MacPherson strut-type front suspension and trailing-arm rear suspension, with a stabilizer bar in back, the Impala is tuned to bring a smooth ride yet handle reasonably responsively. The body and suspension systems were designed to include some significant sound-deadening measures, which make the Impala quiet on the highway and over coarse surfaces.

Depending on the trim level, the Impala comes with either a front bench seat or two individual buckets. In back, there's enough room for three adults across, and the seatbacks on some models fold forward for a full pass-through to the trunk for larger cargo items. There's a storage tub under the rear cushions and a sunroof is available.

Side and side-curtain airbags are standard on all Impalas, along with GM's StabiliTrak stability control system and 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes. There are LATCH child-seat connectors in all three rear seating positions.

Even the base LS model includes keyless entry, cruise control, power windows and locks and air conditioning. LT models get larger machined aluminum wheels, a remote start system, dual-zone climate control and Bluetooth hands-free connectivity. At the top of the range, the LTZ comes equipped as a more sophisticated, somewhat sporty sedan, with upgraded wheels and W-rated tires, heated seats, heated mirrors, a universal remote, and Bose audio. All sound systems include an auxiliary input. Also included in the Impala is the latest Gen 9.0 version of OnStar, with improved voice recognition, along with Direction and Connections services and Turn-by-Turn navigation, which allows you to beam route guidance from a call center into the vehicle.

The available Luxury Edition Package for LT models boasts heated front leather seating, passenger side power adjustability, an 8-speaker Bose audio system, heated power mirrors, Universal Home Remote, and a yearlong subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio.

Summary
This defect can affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2005-2009 Buick LaCrosse, 2006-2011 Buick Lucerne, 2000-2005 Cadillac DeVille, 2006-2011 Cadillac DTS, 2006-2014 Chevrolet Impala, and 2006-2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the weight on the key ring and road conditions or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine.

Consequence
If the key is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy if the vehicle is involved in a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Additionally, a key knocked out of the run position could cause loss of engine power, power steering, and power braking, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will install two 13mm key rings and key insert into the vehicle's ignition keys, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact General Motors customer service at 1-800-521-7300 (Buick), 1-800-458-8006 (Cadillac), and 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet). GM's number for this recall is 14299.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
