RE: 2002 Chevy Impala - gas pump thumps when tank is down to 3/4 full - clicking from speedometer when slow down

I have a 2002 Chevy Impala that I purchased new, when I was deciding on which car I wanted the salesmen were eager to point out all the bells & whistles, how the radio is multi-functional, how you have headlights sensors to turn them on when it's dark, how the climate control can be adjusted for driver and passenger, etc. etc.

These are normal operating characteristics of the car, why then are they not compelled to point out all of the squeeks & rattles that they also consider "normal operating characteristics" ?

Things like the gas tank thumping when you get down to 3/4 full for the first time because Chevy saved money by not putting baffles in the gas tank or the normal operating characteristic where you get to hear alot of clicking from the speedometer in the instrument panel when you slow down.

Then there's the good old "Could not verify", either I have the hearing of a german shepard or I'm getting old and starting to hear things, but either way the mechanic never hears it.
