It looks as if the Camaro SS's produced last week with a six speed manual are going to be held until the first of august or so...so i must wait at least another couple of weeks before i see mine. I was also told that it was just a batch of transmissions and not the whole group of SS six speed manuals.

Just got a call from my dealer and was told the constraint on the M6 was lifted for new orders. My order went in this afternoon and was accepted. I'm finally at 2000.

Where did you hear that?

What about the cars that were produced 4 weeks ago? Are they getting out then also? If someone could answer that I would be a happy (waiting for shipping) camper.

I wouldn't guess that. Forget CS and talk to your dealer. CS will not have a list of anything. They'll ask you if you got a call.

The word is that GM plans to have the 4D lifted in early August. The first of August is not accurate. Contrary to some belief, there have been units that were assessed and released already. They ARE moving.

What i don't understand is how this assesment is done. Are they removing suspect output shafts to inspect them?..doubt it. Are they comparing transmission serial numbers to find a potential pattern so they can best estimate failures?....most likely.
In my opinion (for what it's worth), GM will never be able to accurately predict which ones are bad. It's more than likely a FEW random shafts that made it through tremec quality control.
Anyway i'm sure the hold is for the best...not mad just getting a little impatient. Ok a lot impatient

Some more information on how quickly the held cars are getting through would be appreciated. Also information on the whole proccess would be cool.

Thanks in advance.

You think your impatient I ordered mine in Dec of 2008 and still do not have it. It was slated for delivery when they decided to put a hold on all shipments until they solved or figured out this issue. To say I'm Frustrated after waiting almost 8 months is an understatement.

My dead Camaro

This past Friday my wife and I found out the hard way that my Camaro was indeed part of this batch with faulty parts. I was instructed (by the dealership) to test my launch control and upon doing so broke my drive shaft. I had decided to test this several miles out of town and was not pleased when I ended up being stranded for little over an hour. Thankfully the dealership sent a flatbed truck out and retrieved us and the Camaro. The shop is expected to have it about a week or so, which is a huge inconvenience since I had plans on taking it on a trip.
I want to thank Bill and Jeff who let us park in their driveway on their farm while we waited for help to arrive. The car broke down right in front of their driveway. I apologize for the transmission mess we left behind.

And before I get any remarks on this, yes I was driving on a paved road not a dirt road.

Makes no sense for a dealer to tell you to do that. I would have waited until we hear what vin's are impacted. If you hadn't done that you might still be driving your car.

I was hesitant to try my launch control. I should have went with my gut and not even attempted it. The manager in charge of service was in direct contact with a GM tech. and was curious where my RPMs were holding at during launch control. The manager asked me to take it out and see what the result was. I knew he didn't know about the possibility of there being a problem with the drive shaft. I had called them because I was having difficulty activating the launch control and when I was told how to properly do so, it raised a few concerns. Launch control is activated when the gas pedal is compressed 95% of the way within 700 milliseconds. I expressed my concerns, fearing more for the engine than the transmission. After neglecting to answer my question twice if in the event my engine blew would it be covered by the warranty; the manager then asked me to get back to him within a couple days so he had the results for his records.

After the phone call I really didn't want to try it at all. After much discussions with a friend we came to the conclusion that it should be tested because we figured its a feature that is supposed to work, if it doesn't then I need to be compensated. I have only had the car for about 5 weeks.

The last six digits of my VIN #117911

It's not quite 2 weeks yet, but has anyone received phone notification from GM regarding their tranny?

(I'm 60 numbers away from Dewey's vin... Yikes!)

I will be polite, I just think the conversation might be funny.

GM: "Sir, we are calling because we believe there could potentially be a problem with your transmission.

Dewey: "You're too late."

GM "Excuse me sir?"

Dewey "I already broke it."
