General Motors - Bad Accelerator Sensor Pedal on 2009 Chevrolet Impala. Recall?
Services - Complaint
DETROIT -- My issue was that I was four months into driving my new 2009 Chevy Impala and while driving on the highway driving 65mph my car showed flashing signal reading "engine reduced speed" "check stabilitrack" and my check engine was on. This all happened yesterday. After researching and hearing complaints about GM and how they are charging people anywhere from $250 - $600. We decided to take matters into our own hands. Once this happens you must fix it right away or it could lead to transmission issues. We took my car to autozone had them run a FREE test on my car order the accelerator pedal sensor which is $72.99 at autozone. And my dad replaced it today within 5 minutes. My check engine light no longer on. My car is no longer jerking and they're are no scary flashing signals! I can't believe GM did not send out a recall on that faulty part with all of these reviews. Customer service was not understanding at all.
And also I had a very very hard time understanding a few of the employees that I spoke with. I have posted several reviews on General Motors and Chevrolet's Facebook page, but they manage to delete my posts but they do not respond.
I still have yet to resolve my issue other than to wait on a recall from the NHTSA.
