    Yes...that's part of the sequence. To start the car with the FOB, you must press the lock button and then hold the start button for 4 seconds.

    As for range, from how far away would you say you can use your remote? For me, 20 - 25ft or 3 or 4 parking spaces away (consistently). Sometimes, I can get it to work from farther away but only on rare occasions. It's very frustrating.

    Hi Colchester47...Ya, just be aware of what might happen
    down the road shortly....Mine started acting up after
    about a month...Not only the key fob range ,but they quit
    altogether so i had to go in twice and get them reprogramed. Well,that only lasted a short while, and i had to get the receiver changed. So out comes the dash in my new
    car...Hurts!!!!! Now the key fobs are working only short range, but now they can't get rid of the " Service Tire Monitoring System " message on the message center screen.

    Congratulations on your new Chevy purchase...
    Aside from this, it's a great car

    F ;)
  • I think that if my key fob ever gets to the point where it doesn't work and the Dash has to be removed, I'll just use my key from that point. I have very little trust in dealership mechanics and for them to remove the dash might cause more problems than just the key fob from working! So far it's working well even at long distances although most of my automatic starts will be from my front house door to the car.(30 feet).....talk later...

    One of my favourites is the lane change feature (press the signal stalk up or down and release, the signal flashes 3 times).

    My remote range is down to zero. Yesterday I couldn't even get the remote start to work from right beside the car. I park right outside my window at work - about 4 feet from window to car. The remote won't do anything from this range. Very maddening given the recent cold weather and snow.

    I did learn something interesting about the remote start system yesterday. I started the car (from right beside it) then went inside for a bit. When I came back out I decided to have a quick look under the hood (without putting the key in the ignition). As soon as I popped the hood...the car turned off! And it wouldn't re-start with the remote. I had to start it with the key. Once I had done this, then the remote start system worked again. Interesting security feature!
  • look at the positives here....If your key fob doesn't work and someone steals your key fob ...hey...he can't steal your car!! ;)
  • Hi colchester47, have you had to purchase any winter tires for your SS?? If so, what brand did you buy/suggest? I am thinking about buying a used 06 SS (black/black leather, bose, 6 disc, sunroof, heated seats, etc) and need winter tires here in MA/CT. Thanks for your reply! -Rob
  • mymittiesmymitties Posts: 242
    Hi robs6wagon
    I'm sure that colchester47 will give you his experience and i appologize for jumping on your question to him but let me give my brief 2 cents here....I have an '06 impala 2LT black/black etc. etc , about 3 months ,old and i have changed/upgraded to SS 18" wheels/tires/struts/front sway bar. I live in Toronto , Ontario Canada and we have had a couple of butes here...the 235/50-18 Goodyears have actully been really ok in the snow. So much so that :) i have decided not to buy snows....
    Frank
  • I would take Frank's advice on this one. I will not be buying any other tires than the ones I already have on there. If the weather gets to bad here I just shut everything down for the day/week/month. I baby my cars , especially the ones I really like such as my new Impala. I have a 1994 Silverado with 32,000 miles on it and looks in showroom condition. It has never seen or smelled snow. With out a doubt my new Impala will have 33,000 miles on it in the year 2035...should I not be here my grand children will post here. (I'll be 88 in 2035)...but hopefully I'll be able to blow away a few Dodge Chargers between now and then.................talk soon
  • quietproquietpro Posts: 702
    I like your style, "old" man. :) It seems some of the folks on the comparison boards just don't get it when it comes to classic V-8 power. They love their silky smooth V-6s and I concede that they are nice...for V-6s. But, there's just nothing like the sound or feel of our 5.3L small block and while it is "old-tech" in many ways, the technology has come a long way. In my opinion, we have the best of both worlds. :D

    Since this is a winter driving question, I'll put my thoughts in as well. I don't get snow here in SC but occasionally get some when I visit family in WV. With decent, modern tires, you probably won't need anything else and even though I'm not a big fan of Goodyear, I think they will likely be fine in the snow. With traction control and ABS to help, as long as you don't over-drive the conditions, you shouldn't have a problem. Oh...and just in case you're thinking southern boy doesn't know what he's talking about, I spent four winters in NH...the worst of which we had snow piled up to 20 feet on the sides of some roads. I've done my share of winter driving and good all-season tires will usually handle the job. ;)
  • Thanks colchester and mymitties for the response and advice. I have an hour drive to work each day....the snow and ice can be a hassle sometimes, although I have battled them both for many, many years. Those Goodyears look like they have a decent tread pattern to kick out some of that snow...if we ever get any this year! Thanks again, and Ill let you know if I do decide on buying the car. ps: the trade for the car is my 2006 Civic EX...yes, big difference in vehicles! I did always wanted to go back to an american V8!! -Rob
  • Go for the American muscle!!! God forbid should anything happen to you while driving, do you want to leave this world with the roar and rumble of an SS doing 154 mph (thats what car and driver and Motor trend clocked the SS at!!) or the hissing, panting , wheezing of a rice burning Honda!!...Go American!!...Go Muscle!!
  • I SWEAR!!!...Sorry if I sound like a chevy commercial, but this SS with the 5.3 is one awesome machine!!..When I start this car, with no BS here this car lurches forward 6 inches from the power it produces!!! I've been driving for 43 years, have had a good deal of Powerful mills sitting under hoods, but never have had the power that this thing kicks out! My Silverado has a 350 with 250 horses and it's a quick machine , but wouldn't touch this new 5.3!. I feel like if this car had hands and I stood in front of it and I started it up, it would reach out, grab me by the throat and slap the tar out me!!..I will not let my wife drive this thing, NO WAY!!! And as far as the FWD with torgue steer goes, hey I cut my eye teeth on RWD's and fish-tailing takes some gettin use to also. Torgue steer or fish-tailing can be compensated for by a little experience!! And if you really like this machine and still want RWD....well, just drive in REVERSE!!! ;) ...take care guys, talk later
  • quietproquietpro Posts: 702
    Well, I do prefer RWD and the word is that's what the '09 Impala will be. It will be based on the newest Holden from Australia (what the latest GTO was based on). It will be four door and share most parts with the new Pontiac Grand Prix. I dunno about you but although I love my current SS, I think the next one will be even better. :)
  • nosirrahgnosirrahg Posts: 870
    My plan is to hold off until they introduce the '09 Impala, and then get a sweet deal on an outgoing '08 SS. I suspect the next Impala will scream "LOOK AT ME" to every patrol car around, while the current version can fly by without a second glance!
  • mymittiesmymitties Posts: 242
    Hey colchester47

    Yes,you can Preach it brother !!...Well said...!!
    I think we would all agree... we're ALL CHEVY.
    Talk soon. :)
    F
  • Not to change the subject. well yes, I guess I am changing the subject...."Top Tier Gasoline"..just read an article or two about how GM, Toyota , Honda and BMW. are recommending TOP TIER GASOLINE"....their saying that most oil companies are not manufacturing gasoline that are compatible to their engines!..That detergent gasoline is what they recommend and that most companies are not making enough detergents in their gasoline to help keep clean the engines that we are driving today. They are saying that about 10 companies, Chevron, Shell, Phillips , Conoco and a few others are complying , but most are falling short of deteregents in their gasoline. How do you feel about this? Comments? I'm not totally computer literate, so therefore I'm not into this copy and paste stuff, but if you type "top tier gasoline" in your browser, several articles will pop up. Interesting that Chrysler or Ford are not into this, just the 4 companies that I mentioned. One article said that Shell V_POWER is very highly recommended because it has 5 cleaning agents in it. Take a look , let me know and others what you think...............interesting...
  • Colchester47, man, you sure know how to sell the SS!! Excellent! Hey, I am this close to going down to the dealer and making the trade happen! When I drove it last Sat., I was extremely impressed with its instant power. The leather seats were typical GM: very large and comfortable. (my Honda seats are made for the 5 footers of our society!!). The wind does come in the window seals, but with the cabin so damn quiet and all, well.........who cares! If I may ask you one more question...has your SS been reliable for you?? It seems that after all the researching I have done in various websites (this one being the most informative and my favorite), the car has proven to be a reliable vehicle! It has been too many years since I have driven a V8!! Thanks again for your input! -Rob
  • Rob, I have only owned my SS for a month now. I have no complaints about it at all. There are no recalls on this car as of yet. To my knowledge the key-fob, seems to be concern for some owners. In my researching of this car, I found 3 complaints from several different owners/reviewers. they are (1..Limited leg room for tall people in the back seat (2.the high trunk with the spoiler makes backing up a problem for some drivers...(3..the 10-28 epa gas mileage isn't what they claim it to be. Of these the only one that effects me is the 18 mpg around town. I don't find this a problem for me. Especially that some of my gas mileage is used up by me with jack-rabbit starts at traffic lights and stop signs. Also kicking it down on highways doesn't do much for the mileage either. As of now I'm averaging 14.8 mpg, again mostly my fault. i have no popping sounds coming from the dash, no key-fob problems. my SON -in law says the sound system could be better, but he's in a band and wants everything as bassy as he can get ( this might be a problem for you)but for me the sound is excellant, but I listen mostly to easy listening FM stations and sports and news on AM. For me, the music is turning off the radio and listening to the sweet rumble from the dual exhaust!!..I'll turn the radio on , but as soon as I have to stop and accellerate again , off goes the radio so I can hear the rumble from the pipes! As I mentioned before this old man will be 61 next month, been driving for almost 44 years, owned in the neighborhood od 30-35 cars in my life. I've owned 327's, 350's, 283's all small block chevy's and I owned 348 big blocks back in the early 60's. I've owned convertibles,2 doors, hard-tops, 4 doors, 3 doors and once I owned a 1949 chevy with no-doors!! I've had 3 on the trees,4 on the floors ,5 on the floor and 6 on the floor.I know pretty much from the get-go when a car is made with quality , and belive me I love chevy's but back in the 70's when everything went to computers GM didn't know squat about manufacturing a decent car. Let me get to the point now....This car is in my opinion the finest full size car that Chevy has put out in a long time!!! Smooth riding, fast-fun car to drive, bar none!..If gas mileage is a concern for you...this is not the car you want, if a deep bass sound from the radio is what you want, it's no good for you. If squeeling tires,burnt rubber smell from tires, and quizziness in your stomach from riding to fast makes you sick...stay away from this car!!!....Heed this Warning: THIS CHEVY IMPALA HAS A 5.3 LITER 303 HORSEPOWER SMALL BLOCK ENGINE.THIS CAR CAN REACH A SPEED OF 140+MPH AND WILL DO 0-60 IN 5.7 SECONDS! A TRAINED PROFESSIONAL DRIVER MUST OPERATE THIS VEHICLE AT ALL TIMES! IF YOU CAN'T HANDLE THIS FOUR DOOR SPORT SEDAN THEN GET OUT AND WALK! ;) .....TALK LATER...
  • Hi again, colchester47! Hahahaha, you are definitely from the old school of car enthusiasts! I am 41, and I remember driving my first car, a 1968 Plymouth Belvedere...only had 225 slant 6, but, wow, nice first car! Anyways, the only Impala I ever owned was a 1971 four door 350ci LARGE sedan! Hey, it did ride quite nicely, but wasnt exactly the chick car I had envisioned back then!! After owning a 1975 Malibu Classic, with those great captain's chairs, and several other GM cars, I did switch over to the Hondas and Toyotas in the late 80's/90's. My mistake! While they proved to be very dependable, I had always missed the bigger sedan with some serious power! Last year, I only had a budget (?) of about 20K to spend on a car. That's why I went smaller and got a Civic. I had my eyes on that black SS, but at 28k, couldnt do it! So, now that I can get a 12k mile, fully loaded black one for 18.5K, and as long as my wonderful wife gives her blessing (??), I think I am going to take the plunge and start enjoying V8 rumbling again! Thank you so much for your funny and entertaining responses!! I think I have become a GM driver once again!! See you on the open road! -Rob ps: I listen to the same type of radio as yourself. AM sports stations, oldies FM...this SS I am looking at does have the Bose. Does yours? -Rob
  • quietproquietpro Posts: 702
    I suspect the next Impala will scream "LOOK AT ME" to every patrol car around, while the current version can fly by without a second glance!

    I wish that were true. I thought the same thing when I bought mine but I got a ticket for 84 in a 70 the first day I owned it. I have the best luck, don't I? ;)

    As for long term reliability, my '06 SS has 16,000 miles and is a little over a year old. No wear complaints except for increasing road noise. When it comes time to buy new tires, I won't buy Goodyear. They are alright but there are better tires out there.

    The more "common" complaints are the key FOB range which I am bothered with. This often comes along with a tire pressure monitoring system error and luckily, I haven't had that problem yet. A fix is promised this month.

    The popping in the dash is due to metal clips that rub slightly against the windshield. I believe the word got to the top fairly quickly and the fix was implemented in production. If your car is affected, you'll only hear it when making a hot car cold or a cold car hot. I hear it on occasion, maybe a couple times as the car changes temperature but it isn't worth having my dash removed to fix it. I mistook it for a rock hitting the windshield at first. Once I realized that wasn't happening, it was no biggie.

    The only other "common" complaint is screeching windows. My sister's Impala had that problem and I fixed it in about 10 seconds with some silicone lube. The dealerships keep replacing the seals, sometimes several times, but the lube seems to be the fix. :)

    It's a great car and gives me every reason to believe it's rock solid.
  • axle52axle52 Posts: 36
    Has anyone had this light come on. It's been a ongoing problem with my LTZ. I,ve had 2 thermostats replaced and the BCM replaced and re-programmed recently and the warning light still comes on. Can anyone shine some light on this topic. The dealership still can't seem to solve the problem even with the help of GM. I'm thinking its an isolated case so far. The service advisors brother is the only other person that has this problem thats he's aware. PLEASE HELP........
  • Did they repair the brothers car? If so, what was his problem?
  • axle52axle52 Posts: 36
    No they did not repair the brothers car as they are using my car as the guinea pig. Once they find out what the problem is they will fix his. BTW there was a bulletin issued on the 16th of January for a fix on the TPM and RKE-Bulletin #06-08-52-002C Models 06-07 Lucerne 06-07 CAD DTS, 06-07 Impala just to name a few. Transmitters to be replaced on most models. Step 5 in the Bullentin says and I quote IMPALA ONLY in bold letters-- the RCDLR antenna MUST be replaced.

    Subject: Remote Keyless Entry Inoperative, poor range, Tire Pressure Monitor Message Displayed ( Replace Transmitter and Replace/Reprogram Remote Control Door Lock Receiver (RCDLR) #06-08-52-002C (01/16/2007) I hope everyone with this problem has it fixed properly and that we can all enjoy our Impalas until the 09 version comes out. :) :)

    A new class of fuel called TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline is appearing at retail stations of some fuel marketers. This gasoline meets detergency standards developed by four automotive companies. All vehicles will benefit from using TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline over gasoline containing the "Lowest Additive Concentration" recommended by the Canadian General Standards Board (CGSB). Those vehicles that have experienced deposit related concerns may especially benefit from use of TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline.

    (2) Intake valve: 16,093 km (10,000 mi) with Minimum Additive recommended by the CGSB

    Top Tier Fuel Availability
    Chevron was the first to offer TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline in Canada. Shell became the first national gasoline retailer to offer TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline across Canada. Petro-Canada began offering TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline nationally as of October 1, 2006.

    Gasoline Brands That Currently Meet TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline Standards
    The following gasoline brands meet the TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline Standards in all octane grades :

    • Chevron Canada (markets in British Columbia and western Alberta)

    • Shell Canada (nationally)

    • Petro-Canada (nationally)

    What is TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline?
    TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline is a new class of gasoline with enhanced detergency and no metallic additives. It meets new, voluntary deposit control standards developed by four automotive companies that exceed the detergent recommendations of Canadian standards and does not contain metallic additives, which can damage vehicle emission control components.

    Where Can TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline Be Purchased?
    The TOP TIER program began in the U.S. and Canada on May 3, 2004. Some fuel marketers have already joined and introduced TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline. This is a voluntary program and not all fuel marketers will offer this product. Once fuel marketers make public announcements, they will appear on a list of brands that meet the TOP TIER standards.

    Who developed TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline standards?
    TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline standards were developed by four automotive companies: BMW, General Motors, Honda and Toyota.

    Why was TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline developed?
    TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline was developed to increase the level of detergent additive in gasoline. In the U.S., government regulations require that all gasoline sold in the U.S. contain a detergent additive. However, the requirement is minimal and in many cases, is not sufficient to keep engines clean. In Canada, gasoline standards recommend adherence to U.S. detergency requirements but do not require it. In fact, many brands of gasoline in Canada do not contain any detergent additive. In order to meet TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline standards, a higher level of detergent is needed than what is required or recommended, and no metallic additives are allowed. Also, TOP TIER was developed to give fuel marketers the opportunity to differentiate their product.

    Why did the four automotive companies join together to develop TOP TIER?
    All four corporations recognized the benefits to both the vehicle and the consumer. Also, joining together emphasized that low detergency and the intentional addition of metallic additives is an issue of concern to several automotive companies.

    What are the benefits of TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline?
    TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline will help keep engines cleaner than gasoline containing the "Lowest Additive Concentration" recommended by Canadian standards. Clean engines help provide optimal fuel economy and engine performance, and also provide reduced emissions. Also, the use of TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline will help reduce deposit related concerns.

    Who should use TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline?
    All vehicles will benefit from using TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline over gasoline containing the "Lowest Additive Concentration" recommended by Canadian standards. Those vehicles that have experienced deposit related concerns may especially benefit from use of TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline.

  • Thanks for copying & pasting that for me KW5KW...As I mentioned in post #2250, I don't know how to do this copy and paste thing....interesting to say the least...
  • zjimzjim Posts: 51
    I received an e-mail from my dealer service advisor yesterday notifying me that the parts to repair/correct the remote range/tire pressure monitoring problems once and for all. I've made an appointment to bring the car in next week. That will be the fourth time back to the dealer for this problem and hopefully, the last!

    Contact your dealer ASAP to arrange for your repair.

    Does anyone know if you have to have both symptoms to get them to perform this repair? My RKE range is terrible but I have yet to have the TPM problem. Thanks!
