    2006 Impala

    My security light is on and won't shut off. I can only assume this means someone is trying to break into my car while I'm driving it.

    Re: 2006 Impala

    I drive a 2006 Impala. I haven't had this problem, but I believe that some of the sensors have a problem with shutting off.

    Or you're being carjacked invisibly every time you drive.......

    I think your first problem is that you're driving a Chevrolet...

    I'll never buy a brand new car, seems so wasteful.

    You have to be careful with life support systems. It can make space travel difficult.

    It really is. However, its nice to know that any damage that has been done to it, you did. Nothing hidden. I always say if I were to ever buy a new one, I would drive it till it turned to dust, to make sure I got my moneys worth.

    I have tried, but adding kids has been a killer of that dream for me. I loved my 90' accord. I would have driven that till it vaporized. But alas, not enough room for life to fit in it. I actually had some tears giving it up...enough that if I find one exactly like it someday I may rebuy it.

    Yeah, well, I've always had to learn things the hard way.

    Needless to say we're looking to replace my wife's car, which died in January (I'm grateful for my parents that have let us borrow one until we got our tax refund back). It ain't going to be a new car.

    Yeah, I won't be driving my Grand Prix into the ground - either the second or third kid will end up killing that dream.
