FWIW, Here is the Updated on my 2012 Camaro RS with the 6L50 A6 Tranmission with a Defective Torque Converter:

UPDATE: Okay guys, I took my 2012 Camaro RS 2LT into the Dealership yesterday morning with only 5700 miles on it and they not only replaced my Defective Torque Converter that was Shuddering at any speed with the engine under a load, but with an Updated Torque Converter straight from Michigan.

When I picked the car up during lunchtime today, I also talked to the Transmission Tech and he explained to me that he not only replaced the Torque Converter, buy while the Transmission was out of the car, they removed the Transmission Pan to inspect the inside of the Transmission for metal shavings on the Magnet inside the Transmission Pan and found nothing and installed a New Transmission Filter and Pan Gasket as well as refill the Transmission. I also had the Transmission Tech to check on any and all Updated Bulletins for the TCM (Transmission Control Module ) of which as I suspected there was an update, so he Reprogrammed the TCM for me on my request....

Anybody that owns a 2012 Camaro LS, LT, with the 6L50 A6 Transmission having any of these intermittent Transmission Shuddering and Pulsation changes in their Transmission under an engine load, do yourself a favor and take your car into your Dealership, as well as have the Service Writer Pull a copy of the TSB Bulleting and have them order, replace your Factory Torque Converter, all covered under your Factory Warranty! If you do not, you could very easily have some serious internal damage later on because of this problem to not only wear out the Transmission Clucthes, but also the Main Drive Drum inside the Transmission, which can and will lead to Major Transmission Failure!

Hats off to The Guys at Dyer Chevrolet in Vero Beach, Florida for stepping up to the plate and making my experience a very pleasant one, as I drove the car out on the street After leaving the Dealership and to my total amazement, this vehicle is now an entirely different driving car and as far as the shifts go, they are nice and crisp under wide open throttle and nice and smooth under normal driving. No more Shuddering or Slippage like I was having before when changing gears under normal driving!

My 2012 Camaro just started doing the same thing with heavy vibrations and shudder. It is scheduled to see the transmission specialist at the dealership next week for diagnostics/repair. I hope they can fix it fast. Thank goodness for the warranty!

Apologies for my poor English skill set.

Took my car to the dealership and showed the bulletin attached in this thread. Service rep said they have done several of these and will check my car. Came back after 15 mins and said they will order the Torque Converter and call me once the part arrives. Called me back after 3 days to inform the torque converter has arrived. Dropped my car at dealership and was told it may take 2 days. After keeping the car for grand 3 days I was told of no issues with the car and no need to replace torque converter. During the first two days service rep called me to say they are working torque converter, since it’s a transmission issue repair is taking longer. I knew they were wrong, didn’t want argue as I was already frustrated after spending 3hrs in traffic. On my way back home experienced vibration more than dozen times and also noticed check engine light was left on. Called the service rep and explained both issues. Took my car back to the dealership after 2 days, this time they observed shuddering. Replaced Torque converter and returned my car the next day. Though problem seems to have been resolved for now, I am not going back to the dealership for anything.

Good for you that they finally fixed the problem. Also, you do know that you Do Not need to take your Chevy into Chevy Dealership, Right? The car is all GM and Buick, Cadilac, GMC, Chevrolet , all of them can work on your car. Because of the run around and the timeframe you spent , taking it to and from the Dealership twice, I would have gone to the Owners Office, after talking to the Service Director to get complete satifaction you deserve! Hope this helps, as I got my Email Survey from GM today and filled it out and gave my Dealership Praise for them handling situation as I requested and it was done to perfection. My Torque Converter was replaced on Nov. 14th, so 12 days and car drives like a completely difference car now! Hats off to Dyer Chevrolet , Vero Beach, Florida..

I took the Camaro in for service today and they deemed it was a torque converter issue. The part is now on order and will be in next week along with the repair.

Keep us posted as to how well it goes. I got 1500 miles on my new Torque Converter with no more issues at all.

Taking my 2012 V6 in on Tuesday 12/4 to have the tranny/torque converter issue diagonsed and confirmed. I started noticing the shudder/stutter about 3 weeks ago and it has gotten progressively worse. I thought that I would not have to deal with it but sadly I will.

Good news! The new torque converter was installed last Thursday at the dealership and the Camaro runs perfect. I no longer have that annoying vibration at lower speeds. Furthermore, the Camaro now seems to shift a lot smoother than even on the first day I purchased the vehicle. The problem is finally solved!

Glad to see you got your Torque Converter replaced and that cured your Vibration Problems, as well as the Shuddering at lower speeds and when the engine was under a load. Good thing about this is, GM found problem in the present 2012 LFX Engined Camaro's as well as the Cadillac CTS's with the 6L50 Transmission in them, even into the 2013 Models as well have this new upgraded Torque Converter!

Vibration in Steering Wheel

Hi, Is anybody experiencing vibration in steering wheel typically driving on highways around 50 -60 Mph?
I just started noticing slight and constant vibration in my steering wheel. Not sure if this has anything to do with torque converter replaced recently on my car.

Sounds like you need to take it into your dealership and get the wheels checked for maybe a re-balance, as well as get the 4 Wheel Alignment checked, as that would not be having anything to do with the Torque Converter problem that everyone else has been having. Hope this helps.

Hi Thanks for your reply. Sat went to dealership to check vibration in steering wheel problem checked. Technician test drove/checked it and said problem is related to Torque converter. Today left my car at the dealership. After so many trips to dealerships to fix this issue I feel like I have bought a clunker http://www.camaro5.com/forums/images...es/mad0260.gif

Wow. I think I'm having the same issue as everyone else in this thread. My Camaro V6 has 6200 miles on it and about 3 weeks ago I began feeling hesitation and sluggishness when lightly applying the gas in the 35 to 55 mph range. I'm going to take it to the dealer and suggest to them that it my be the torque converter issue mentioned her in this thread. Hopefully this will speed up the trouble shooting and repair process.

Make sure you print out a copy of the TSB and take it with you to the dealership, regardless, as some do not even know about it yet, as was the case at my dealership, until I explained the entire procedure to them, then they fixed it with an Upgraded GM Converter!
