2010 Camaro 2SS/RS Output Shaft broke

Haven't had the car one week yet and last night while sitting at a stop light attempted to take off and when I shifted the car wouldn't go anywhere. Had to push the car off the road and have it towed to dealer with transmission fluid leaking everywhere.

The output shaft broke. The dealership just called and GM is very concerned with the issues with the shafts breaking. They are shipping a new transmission and in the meantime are looking into building a stronger holding device. If the new transmission breaks they will replace it again under warranty. If they come up with a stronger device, it will be replaced under warranty.

I'm concerned that this may happen again, but they are backing up their product 100%. The dealer is also providing me with a loaner.

This is a known issue and GM has been quick on the shipments of new Trannies. RRCAMARO had his in our shop last monday, on friday afternoon the new transmission arrived and this past monday he was out flirting with all the women in his car again he can get away with (without getting caught by mrs RR!)

Yup, there has been quite a few off them breaking.. There is definitely an issue with the Manual 6 speed transmissions out there. Mine broke a little over a week ago and has since been replaced with a new transmission. Hopefully this one will last.. !

This almost makes me want to go to a out of the way road or parking lot and launch a few times. At least that way if it snaps I'll be out of traffic and prepared to push the onstar button

any idea if this is limited to just a particular run of cars? certain vin#'s

I have car #227 ... have done several pretty hard launches ( controlled by me) havent used the launch feature yet with the competitive mode so perhaps this maybe the problem?

I have a little over 2k miles on the car.

I am planning on going to the track tomorrow night, now I am skeptical about it. If this happens as the track would it void the warranty if I called onstar to come get it?

You might want to mention that "little" addition to your car's engine before making that statement. These shafts could have fractured a run or two before it actually broke. Don't tell me you didn't try the blower out a few times....

I decided to get on it. I was going about 45 MPH in 5th gear and attempted to downshift into 4th, but accidentally shifted into 2nd. Tires made a loud chirp, the RPM's shot up and I wound up shifting hard into 3rd around 6,000 RPM. Since I wasn't expecting that, it was a little scary, but no problems. I'm still not gonna try Launch Control yet! I can't bring myself to lay on her too hard.

Just to play it safe, I'll do a couple of hard launches a few blocks away from the dealership, just in case...

yep...Thought it was rear end at first because speedo worked but once I got someone else with me I had them watch the drive shaft and it doesn't turn so Has to be back half of tranny somewhere.

Fortunately I have a trailer and took it to dealer. ( Guess what was there,,,the guy that got his camaro after mine, his car was there with a blown tranny and they had it a part. His was only second gear.

I am hoping its an output shaft. Dealer thinks I am alright with warranty but I won't know until tomorrow.

I didn't loose any fluids though and from what I have been reading everyone who lost an output shaft was loosing fluid., so I guess I will know tomorrow.

I guess we will terst the warranty thing....

What sucks is it wasn't even a launch just shifting into sevond at about 4500rpm.

Hennesy and LINGY are launcjing those things with gummys. It was nothing like that.

I think it is a heat treat problem with output shafts myself but as I said I will know tomorrow.

I will keep everyone posted on what it is and how my dealer handles it.

I have a great dealer so this may help people concerned about adding a blower on whether or not you should take the chance.

No biggie if they don't cover it but I am more concerned about the ability of the tranny's to hold up.

It would have gone without the blower I wasn't even in it that hard...Heck I was in town ( small town not like I can get away with that in the city here everyone including the cops know me.

Anyway..the biggest bummer is my son was going to take his senior pictures with the car on Monday and since I let him Bring it home it was a pretty big deal for him.

That is what I am really feeling Bad about!

No Gripes hear I knew the possibility of driveline failure and I am willing to except that responsability if The power adder created the problem.

I also know that there are alot of blown camaro's that have been flogged by guys at the track with Gummy's etc (Hennesy and lingy)

That I have not done.

I have not done any Launches in the car or Burn outs. Didn't need to Think hooks and goes I just find it a little suspisous Given that Hennesy and lingy are pumping up the boost and Flogging them on a regular basis and I haven't heard of any issues from them.

Besides I have cars that I love doing burn outs in...the thing I like about the New camaro's ( I Guess There are many but) is they hook up so well. No need to dump the clutch just let the clutch out easy and stand on it and go. Love the G's..

Not Complaining...Still love my car and I have always known youi gotta pay to play. No worries, I have blown, motors,trannys,and rear ends for a lot of years now. Just nuts and bolts it will get fixed. Just thought I would let everyone know so they can make informed decisions on their mods etc.

I still do believe that the tranny should have held up.

If I would have been launching or doing burn outs it would have been different....I do believe there is a heat treating problem somewhere.

Like I mentioned before the guy that bought his car after mine who has no mods was at the dealer today with his tranny blown.

There is a real problem there somewhere.

Anyway, life goes on for me. I will just get my Blown 80 Z28 out and go hammer that for a while, which by the way has the original tranny and rearend holding 600HP and has since I bought it new 30 years ago ( Turbo 350)

Even With More Tire I might add...

If that one goes I have several more options to choose from. Been building cars for years.


I will still miss my 2010 though. I really love it and wouldn't change a thing. As soon as I get it back we will try it out for real next time. If it goes than....

It will be time to start shopping for a tranny that will hold up cause that power adder ain't comin off!

Don't Know the dealer was telling me he had been getting the run around on the other guys car on parts. didn't know when they would be available and they sent some wrong so who knows.

I have seen some posts where they just replaced the whole tranny .

I didn't get to the Dealer until 5pm so we checked it out enough that we don't believe its the rear. They are going to tear it apart tomorrow.

If its an output shaft and I get a new tranny not long ( A week or so maybe)...if they have to rebuild it who knows, sounds like parts might be an issue.

If they do rebuild it and its on my dime...I might be searching for some stronger inards....

No Worries man....They Will Have you back on the road in no time.

If its an output shaft they will fed ex your dealer a new trans assembly. He will have it in a couple days mine was shipped friday and sould be here Monday.


And as long as the trans is out and they have to put a shifter back on it is a great time to upgrade shifters.

At least that's what I'm thinking.

I never seem to put them back together without upgrading something.

Might as well turn a Neg. into a Pos.

Got a rip shift going on mine!
