Mine does the same, I'm pretty sure the tranny is slipping. I've done some researching about it and I guess the transmissions in the 8th gen Impala (06-12) is pretty crappy. Lucas Transmission fluid supposedly should help with slipping but I've yet to try it out in my car, but I will in a few weeks.


Hello Gamble0253, Sorry to hear you're having this issue. If you would like, I can check to see if there are any recalls or special coverages related to the issue you're experiencing with your Impala. If so, please private message me the last 8-digits of your VIN. Look forward to your reply. Vanessa GM Customer Service
