I see the same issues I'm dealing with, I have 2013 Equinox which my wife worked at the Chevrolet Dealership and I think they took advantage of her, but now the vehicle is in shop this morning and I'm afraid of the issues that may arise.. buy a car, then have to put alot more money in to it??? So wrong!! And I liked GM, now not so muchAugust 9
Just got my 2014 Chevy Impala about 2 months ago, 4 times in past 2 weeks the traction control came on when taking off from a stop sign and in a parking lot. There was a scrapping noise (abs i assume) and I had to stop (as a car was coming toward me) took it to GM dealer, No code so NO fix. So now I get to nervously drive it hoping it doesn't randomly stop again OR try to remember to turn it off every time I drive. I was so excited to get this car and now I am scared of it.June 15
karrie3373By the way, it is summer, so no ice, and I am a pretty slow driver so it is not as if I was spinning my tires taking off from a stop. I am a 43 year old who is never in a hurry.
karrie3373I don't want to crash and get hurt just because they couldn't duplicate the problem or get a code. It doesn't seem fair that I get to risk my life because of some code.
karrie3373OK after google and a lot of thought I realized that this traction control problem did not start until I put E85 in the car, I am not the only one this has happened to in GM cars. Maybe people should know about this possible problem when changing gas. So if you put E85 in and are now having traction control issues this MIGHT be the culprit.
We are sorry to hear about your Impala and understand how frustrating it can be to have a concern with a new vehicle. Please know your safety is important to us and we do take your feedback seriously. As we are not trained technicians we rely heavily on our certified dealerships for concerns such as these.
To clarify, does your Impala have a yellow fuel cap? On page 264 of the Owner’s Manual it states “if the vehicle has a yellow fuel cap, E85 or FlexFuel can be used in the vehicle.” This page also states what fuel is best for the Impala. “The recommended fuel for the Impala is regular unleaded gasoline with a posted octane rating of 87 or higher. If the octane rating is less than 87, an audible knocking noise may be heard. If this occurs, use a gasoline rated at 87 octane or higher as soon as possible. If heavy knocking is heard when using gasoline with a higher octane rating, the engine needs service.”
We would be happy to look into this for you, please feel free to send us a private message.

karrie3373Yes it has a yellow cap, I let the e85 run out and put reg. in, no traction control problems since. I will never use E85 in this car again, it shouldn't even be an option!
I have a 2008 Cadillac CTS that I bought from a dealer in November 2015. It had 91,000 miles on it. I had to pull over with knocking sounds. The oil was changed about 2 weeks ago. What could be the problem? There were no sensor lights on. I'm reading about all of the problems that people are having with the engines. Know I'm upset with this and I'm worried as I may have to put a new motor in still owing 12,000 on the car. If it is the engine i will never buy another Cadillac or Chevy ever again.June 27

I purchased a 2013 Buick Verano two weeks ago and I noticed the driver's side door speaker quit working. The other speakers work perfect. Any ideas? Oh, it is a Bose system
