GM's Crappy Transmissions
Before you all freak out, I'm not referring to the Camaro (at least not yet), but I am concerned. I own a 2006 Cobalt SS/SC with 40,000 miles and a Stage 2 Performance Upgrade. Car was purchased brand new and I never raced it, though it is a work vehicle for me so it sees a boatload of stop and go traffic just about every day. I was heading to a job this past Saturday and the gears just suddenly became unresponsive. For those that don't know about the Cobalt Super Sport/Supercharged, it has a hydraulic clutch, which can take a lot of abuse and wasn't the cause of this. Apparently, something near the top of the transmission, or something that the shifter or clutch connects to (shift rods) just got shredded for some unknown reason. The dealership was licking their chops, just about laughing at the situation over the phone saying it was going to cost $1500.00 total to tear the transmission down and the warranty expired at 36,000 miles. Good job GM!! Way to go!! If I got stuck with that kind of bill, I would have unloaded my Camaro and canceled my wife's new Equinox so fast, it would have made their head spin. Fortunately, some extended warranty company contacted me over a year ago and asked me if I wanted to purchase full dealership-like coverage (5 Year or 75,000) bumper to bumper. It's a $100.00 deductible and since this greedy dealership wants $115.00 an hour for labor for some reason, which is bulls*it, my insurance will only cover up to $100.00. Seriously, that is a load of crap GM. I intentionally bought a manual transmission to avoid all the sensitive sensor nonsense and computer controller garbage that easily break in automatic transmissions. Then this happens. They had better pick their game up and stop selling sh*tty transmissions or the Equinox will be the last GM product I'll ever purchase.
