NHTSA Complaint Form for AY6 Guys

Looks like FORD is getting nailed by the Feds for transmission problems. Enough people have filed complaints with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration so they are investigating.

Here is the link to their complaint system. If you have a notchy or missed shifts this is a safety issue. It can cause a crash.

https://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/ivoq/

Together we can get this problem fixed!

They also said the TITANIC CANT SINK!

Bottom line... This is a safety issue that GM needs to address.

185 of us voted on a grind or bind on the AY6 2nd Gear Problem Thread.

Fill out your complaint forms. This will help us open an investigation and force GM to address this problem.

I guess you never heard of someone missing a gear and getting rear ended. It has happened and can happen.

I've nearly been rear ended and T-boned on multiple occasions, in only 9 months! Two just off the top of my head, when making a left turn in traffic and the 2nd gear binded causing me to be unable to shift. The car behind me, tailgating of course trying to beat the light, had to slam on brakes and the oncoming cars had to slow a little. If I had been a little braver and REALLY tried to beat traffic, it could have ended very, very badly.

And I submitted a report yesterday. It needs to be fixed, and soon.

Isnt the tr6060 the exact same transmission used in the vette, viper and challenger? Why is it only a problem in the camaro?

Edit - Dah - just saw it's for the v6. My bad..., the v8 guys are complaining of a 2-3 grind. Thought it was them complaining again.

As a former LS owner who knows exactly what you guys are going through, I couldn't agree more about the utter absurdity of someone who drives an SS trying to comment about a V6 problem on a V6 thread.

Right on Mike.

Hey all. I spoke to my local dealer. Here is what they are seeing. Not very many of us (myself included) are actually calling GM Customer service. We are not going beyond a dealer, which is not raising visibility on this issue. I am going to call GM customer service, that is the 800 number in your manuals. If we don't hammer GM with our issues and log the complaints, it gets NO visibility at their end... CALL TODAY AND COMPLAIN. GM customer service #'s are US call 1-800-222-1020, Canada call 1-800-263-3777. File a complaint formally to raise GM awareness!!!

It should work.. hmmm. Can you try it on another computer? Sometimes it might be security settings on your browser or anti virus.
