2006 Chevrolet Impala LS from North America
Nice car if they would fix the steering, rear defroster and improve the distance on the remote start
Rear Defroster quit working.
Remote start doesn't work from a very far distance.
Intermediate shaft went bad on the steering.
Rotors warp fast.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

The Intermediate Steering Shaft problem has been going on since the 2000 model Impala rolled off the assembly line. You have a 2006 Impala. Why has the problem continued and not fixed permanently? GM was supposed to have a new and revised steering shaft, that was supposed to cure this problem.
The Impala steering problem does not just involve the intermediate steering shaft. I have had steering problems on my 2003 Impala LS. During my ownership and 30,000 miles, I have been through three rack and pinion steering shafts on the front end. The rack and pinions seem to last two and a half years, and then they leak all of the fluid. After the fluid leaks out, the steering is harder to turn, squeaks when turning and clunks. The rack and pinion is a very poor design on these cars, and I have never replaced any rack and pinion units on any car owned until at least 100,000 miles. No more GM cars for me; they are poorly made.
