2006 Chevrolet Impala LT from North America
Love it, wouldn't trade it for anything, BUT some very annoying and concerning issues
Right driver's side window makes a loud screaming sound when it is warm outside. Tried WD40 - no luck.
20 inch rims won't fit on the car, and air bags/lifting/knuckels etc. are not possible. Will scrape tires, causing them to bald.
The most important issue is the squeaking and straining of the steering wheel, and the slight vibrations. Have noticed that it squeaks the most when slightly turning to the right at higher speeds.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

1) My windows did that on my 06 Impala. They have to take the door panel off to grease the gear.
2) You are going to need a new steering shaft.
I loved mine, too, but it was a lease and now I have a Cobalt.

If the steering squeaks when turning the wheel, grab some grease, and grease the tie rod ends. I used WD40 instant cure.
As for the steering wheel, WD40 where it turns a few times and let it soak. Clean it off everything else, you just want it in the area between the wheel and the plastic. Squeak be gone!
