I need to know if there is any resolution to the
Automatic V6 transmission vibration? (only 13K miles)
I'm having the same problem at around 43-46 MPH and
reported it several times to Chevy dealership.

I like how they state it is only for V6/Auto when in fact the vibration/missing feeling happens in the manual transmissions as well. Drive steady speed in third gear at 33 mph and you can feel the engine missing. Same in fourth at 43 and second at 20ish. All of those are at about 2000 to 2200 rpms.

Hello all. I have a 2010 Camaro V6 auto with 50,000 miles. Three weeks ago or so I began to notice a vibration when I would get between 40-50 mph and it just began to get worse. At first I thought I may be the gas...another tank later same. I even tried premium unleaded and more of the same. Even on the highway driving between 70-80 mph it began to do the same. Well long story short last Friday I got to a light and heard a thump noinse as I came to a stop...next light when I stopped another thump noise...decided to drive back home...got to a Stop...pressed the gas and nothing all it did was rev up and after like 4-5 seconds gear kicked in and I managed to make it home...mind you the engine light light did not come on and all gages marked everything as normal... I had had enought and called my dealership to bring it in...Riverside Cheverolet in Rome, Ga...tech took it for a drive and could not duplicate what I had described as the issue...I drove to dealership and test drove it along with the tech and at first it was driving fine but once it warmed up good it began to do the vibrating and the thump noise at every stop. This was yesterday. Today, Wed., the service rep calls me and tells me that they have identified the issue with my car...coolant from the radiator has leaked into the engine and transmission and now both have to be rebuilt or replaced with new. He told me they are awaiting word from GM on what to do next and if this is going to be under warranty...

I don't see how this could NOT be under warranty...I will post more when I hear back from the dealership.

Today's Date 2-20-2012.
I have a 2012 Camaro LS auto V6. Purchase November 5th 2012.. 2nd 2012 Camaro.
I have the SAME FREAKING PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now, this Wednesday i will be taking in my car for this problem.
Dealer said last week it's the bushy or something like that.
My car started to shake after it i put in oct 89. after i used up that tank, i went back to 87 and after that the problem began; which is what we all are bitching about..

I will take the car this wed to the dealer and see. If it still does it again, i will take it again and again and apply for lemon law. This is my second 2012 camaro. first was a lemon and now this one seems to be in the same road.


This shouldn't be a normal thing to live with..... Heck no!!! We are in America We all, or some, worked hard for our car's and spend w.e we spend on them!! GM should fix this problem or do something about it!!! I will not rest until something is done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Still taking in my pre-ordered 2010 every 4-6 months reporting this very issue. Dealer can not find any fix in the "system". Fully stock with 44k miles, been having the issue since about a week after taking it home from dealer.

Mysterious document "resource" and 2011 only "solution coming" showed promise...any real updates from owners experiencing issue? Any corrections or fixes?

I traded mine for a Corolla and the vibration went away. It made me sick every time I felt the vibration and thinking of what I paid for the car (31K). It was unacceptable to me. My air conditioner compressor went out and it leaked in the rain or washing. I traded it with 4K miles. There was another long post on this problem started by me and it was deleted and I was banned from this site for a month because they said I was a troll. So don't bitch about it too much. I will say it is the best looking car on the road, but 31K car should not have this many problems. I traded it to lower my blood pressure.

2011 V6 automatic. 1100rpm vibration issue since day one, no previous fix identified. Took car to dealer for oil change and to document vibration issue again. Paperwork says Dealer found Doc ID #2756752 that states to replace rear subframe forward bushings and 7 bolts, parts are ordered and will direct ship. Will update status of vibration issue after parts installed.

I had the same issue. Dealer told me to slow down or speed up. said they called GM and they are aware of the issue but don't have a solution yet. Issue went away after installing my MRT exhaust. Don't feel the vibration any longer.

The information I posted is what was on the paperwork when I picked up the car, the Service Advisor had already left for the night.

Sorry I cannot provide anything specific regarding Doc ID #2756752. Just thought I'd share what I had learned for those that have been monitoring this thread for any news of a solution. Sounds like they may have the long awaited fix to this .......... annoying problem.

Will post an update with results after the replacement parts are installed.

Hey all,

I had a simalar issues with vibration. I have a '12 v6 auto and was having vibrations in the gas pedal, floor boards and gear shift. (found out if was important to be able to tell the service exactly where you fell the vibrations) it was happening to me between the speeds of 34-45mph and wasn't all the time. I could speed up or slow down to put a stop to the vibrations.

I finally took it to the shop and the service write wanted the main service guy to take a ride with me so i could show the guy. The guy came back and said there was no need me to take the mechanic out. There is a service bulition out on this (wouldn't give me the number for the bulition) but it deals with the Torq Converter. Which they replaced. Now after spending 2 days in the shop (had to wait on the torq converter to be shipped) I have no vibrations (so far, it was getting to the point where the vibration was happening every time I went anywhere.

Hope this helps some of you guys. If need be I can try and find out the number of the service bulition.
