I worked on a 4gen camaro a few years back and it had the same issue you are having, the solinoid for the 1-4 skip shift was partially stuck causing that particular cars issue, it never fully returned giving it a very notchy 1-2 up and 3-2 down. I would have the dealer look into that solinoid. Let us know what they find

You have to have it serviced. The shifting on this car is way better with the zl1 short throw than the hurst.

Your going to have to try and take it to another dealer. Sounds like a bad trans to me. Best thing to try is bleeding the hydraulics frist and see if that helps.

If you tune it CAN be eliminated.

Any tune what so ever, will void you're warranty. Once you touch the mapping of the car you cant go back.

I just got to test drive one and had no problem with shifting and I have not driven a manual in 11 years so my shifting wasn't the smoothest,so that was on me,but I never had the skip shift engage and no grinding,a blast to drive.I think I'll be ordering around April for a June delivery.So hope you can get that checked out and fixed if there is a problem

These transmissions for the most part (up to 700RWHP) are bullet proof. The o.p. might just have a bad trans...its happens from time to time...you have almost your full warranty left...the sky isn't falling. Any COMPETENT service department will be able to fix your issue.

My 577WHP 1LE was "built" @ 1600 miles with zero issues.....and with 600+ more miles since the build.....still zero issues. Oh yeah.....and 4 passes at the track. Almost sounds like a crap shoot wether you have issues or not but seems fairly rare.

I'm new to Camaro5.com but have raced a thirdgen Camaro for years with a Tremec 3550 and now a TKO. My Tremecs didn't shift very well until I used GM transmission fluid for a 2008 ZO6. It shifts at over 6000 rpm with this fluid and I didn't realize how much of a difference the right fluid could make. If that doesn't work, the transmission can be rebuilt with carbon synchros.

My car shifts VERY nicely especially when the RPMs are higher than 2K. I do have a couple complaints, however.

1. When the skip shift comes on and, thus, forces you to 4th, OFTEN it sounds like the transmission is grinding away like a low rumble chatter. I've started shifting to 3rd instead. It blocks from 2nd but not to third.

2. Sometimes I swear I hear the throwout bearing making lots of whirring noise. I'm not sure if this is how I'm driving, clutching but it's a annoying. I can hear it over the radio.

3. I'm surprised at the amount of chatter the transmission can make if you don't feather the clutch just so. I'm not talking about the skip shift chatter. I know the difference. But I hear lots of metal clanking about. Now if I rev the car more and mind my clutching this isn't a problem. Perhaps this issues lie between the steering wheel and the floor as in my driving style. Perhaps I'm driving too much for mileage at the moment.

I agree, when I go through the parking lot if I am not appling gas it will chatter and metal against metal sound.I have speed bumps I have to go over and I crawl but still makes a lot of unpleasant sounds we will call them lol.

ALRIGHT GUYS! I called the deal about my car not going into reverse and they told me to bring it in.. but it only happened twice. Instead of going after the lemon law I am taking the more expensive and least amount of time approach, TRADING IT IN!! It almost brings tears to my eyes because I love everything else about the car, but I will not go through this tranny crap any longer! this is a 40,000 dollar car and GM should not allow this crap to happen and need to Fix the ISSUE with the TR-6060. Best of luck to all the guys out there that have similar issues and will have these issues. I want to thank everyone for your support and it has been a rough ride, but at least I can say I tried to own such a great piece of American muscle.
