2012 Chevrolet Impala
2012 Chevrolet Impala
The Impala, Chevy's only full-size sedan, has trudged along year after year with little attention paid to its outdated styling and mechanicals, even as its smaller sibling, the Malibu, is now on its second significant redesign in less than five years. The Impala still hasn't shaken its dull sheetmetal or uninspiring interior appointments, but for 2012 it's the recipient of a much-needed heart transplant in the form of the 3.6-liter V-6 that was dropped from the Malibu -- now powered only by an in-line four -- and a modern six-speed automatic to replace the ancient four-speed transmission. The new engine replaces the previously offered 3.5- and 3.9-liter V-6s and is the only powerplant available. Power increases significantly -- up 70 hp from the larger V-6 -- to 300 hp, with an accompanying increase in fuel economy to an estimated 18 mpg in the city and 30 on the highway. Driving dynamics are unchanged, though, so the Impala's limp steering and soggy suspension are still present. The rumors that the Impala would be replaced by the G8 from the defunct Pontiac brand proved unfounded. That's too bad, because the G8 was a well-wrought performance vehicle. For now, despite its new powertrain, the Impala still has a long way to go if it wants to be a legitimate competitor to full-size sedans such as the Chrysler 300 and the Ford Taurus.

Component
ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION
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.
Consequences
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 will cause loss of engine power, power steering, and power braking, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.
Remedy
GM will notify owners, and dealers will install two key rings and an insert in the key slot or a cover over the key head on all ignition keys, free of charge. The recall began on September 23, 2014.
