I PURCHASED MY 2006 IMPALA SS BRAND NEW IN 2006. I'VE BEEN A LOYAL GM CUSTOMER MY WHOLE LIFE. AT 99,000 STARTED EXPERIENCING TRANSMISSION ISSUES, SLIPPING,AND HARD SHIFTING... AT 101,000 MILES I WAS DRIVING DOWN THE HIGHWAY AND MY TRANSMISSION STOPPED WORKING. I REFINANCED MY CAR TO REBUILD THE TRANSMISSION FOR $2,200 . AFTER THE REBUILD TRANSMISSION WAS WORKING OK. THEN AT 122,000 MILES IT STOPPED WORKING AGAIN... IT WAS SNOWING AND I WAS STRANDED IN THE TURN LANE OF A ROAD WITH A SPEED LIMIT OF 55MPH... I TURNED OFF MY CAR LET THE ENGINE COOL DOWN AND BACK ON AT LEAST 20 TIMES... MY CAR MOVED ABOUT 200 FEET EACH TIME... AN HOUR LATER I GOT BACK TO MY HOUSE THAT WAS 5MILES FROM THE FAILURE. I CANT AFFORD TO FIX IT NOW AND I AM STILL PAYING FOR THE CAR. ITS BEEN SITTING IN MY YARD FOR 10 MONTHS. THIS ISSUE IS VERY DANGEROUS AND NEEDS TO BE RESOLVED. I ALSO RECEIVED A RECALL FOR MY POWER STEERING HOSE, GOT IT FIXED AND THE BRACKETS CAME LOOSE FROM MY FRAME CAUSING MY STEERING TO GET VERY HARD. I PULLED OVER AND CHECKED MY POWER STEERING FLUID AT WALMART AND IT WAS EMPTY. I FILLED IT AND EVERYTHING WAS WORKING. THE NEXT MORNING I HAD NO POWER STEERING AGAIN... MY HOSE HAD RUBBED ON MY FRAME MAKING A HOLE. I WENT TO THE STORE AND BOUGHT MORE POWER STEERING FLUID BUT AFTER I PUT IT IN MY STEERING WAS MAKING A LOUD SOUND AND DIDN'T TURN WELL. I THINK IT WAS DAMAGED DUE TO THE LEAK. I TOO HAVE A LOUD CLICKING SOUND COMING FROM MY DASHBOARD WHEN I TURN ON MY CAR. I WAS TOLD BY THE DEALERSHIP IT WAS THE VENT FLAP MOTOR ... $750 DOLLARS TO REPAIR... PART IS ONLY $65 THE REST IS LABOR... ALSO WHEN I FIRST BOUGHT MY CAR I HAD TO GET ALL 4DOOR WINDOWS REPLACED (UNDER WARRANTY) DUE TO IMPROPER WINDOW GUIDE ADJUSTMENT. AND MY AUTOMATIC TRUNK RELEASE WORKS OFF AND ON, MY KEYLESS ENTRY ONLY WORKS 5 FEET FROM MY CAR WITH NEW BATTERIES,AND ALL TIRE PRESSURE SENS. WENT BAD$100 EACH HELP.
