Can anyone shed some light on this recall?
I was unable to drive my brand new Impala off the lot on 8/8/2014 because of this safety recall. It was announced on 8/8/2014 as we were at the dealer signing the paperwork and handing over a check.
It sounds like a console latch needs to be replaced. Just wondering why its taking over a week to get the fix info to the dealer?

The service manager got the info from GM about the recall procedure. They inspected the latch and it was not involved in the recall.
