2003 Chevrolet Impala from North America
Brakes 4 times, PC board, transmission, steering, security.
I am a Chevy Impala owner (2003); what a piece of crap. Never will I buy a Chevy or an American made car again. So many problems, so many issues, and no help from GM customer service. I had hoped that the company would have closed for good.
The kicker is my father worked for that crappy company for over 25 years.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Yet another fine example of GM engineering... and people think Toyotas are so bad.

Yes I have to agree with you when you say "CRAPPY". I have also had problems with the steering with my 2003 Impala LS. I have had three rack and pinion steering gear units replaced in 30,000 miles. I also wished GM went under and was not bailed out. They used to build quality cars, but took their customers for a ride on anything they produced after 1990.
I also have a 2005 Impala. On the 2005, the intermediate steering shaft, front HUB bearings, ABS control module, and some engine seals have had to be replaced in 70,000 miles. I will never buy GM again ever.
I also own a FORD, and do not have these problems. GM's cars are poorly made, and I do not believe in what they are now saying when they tell you the quality has greatly improved.

My brother is a big Chevy fan, and has never had any of the issues I see in these comments with his Impalas.
Our 2003 GMC Envoy is now approaching 100,000 miles, and has never had so much as new brake pads (we seldom do brake jobs on any domestic before 100,000 miles because we know how to drive to prevent brake wear).
We also own 2 Fords, and have never had a single problem with them either. Our only car problems were with our Japanese and German imports.
