Chevrolet Complaint - Battery Compartment - 2000 Chevrolet Impala
MICHIGAN -- You need to find the engineer who designed the battery compartment for the 2000 Chevy Impala and take him or her outside and beat the stupidity out of them. You should never hire an engineer who has not spent at least 5 years as a mechanic. In the 2000 Impala you have too much stuff in the battery area. There should be two connections and a battery hold down. Reroute the other crap. A battery replacement should be simple and easy. If this is too hard for the engineers to figure out, then go back to my first sentence, and follow it closely. I had to replace the battery in my wife's car in sub-zero weather.
Luckily the engineer who designed this mess wasn't close by. Use some common sense when you design things.
