8/4/2010 - VON ALLEN
I CALLED MY DEALER AND THEY TOLD ME THAT THERE WAS NO RECALLS ON MY CHEVY IMPALA 2002 LS, IS THIS IN FACT TRUE. AND IF THERE IS A RECALL HOW CAN I QUALIFY FOR THE RECALL.

Do you drive a 2002 CHEVROLET IMPALA?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
