They have to check the computer and transmission tunes to see if they are factory tunes. If not they void the drivetrain warranty on the car and you have to pay.

You were just driving along when the failure occurred? Have you raced your car?

This is a known issue with some 6 speed manual transmissions. As long as he hasn't tuned his car or done anything to the engine, it should be covered...

They know which ones are bad. They replaced mine and called to say problem. GM told them to put it up on the rack and check serial number after it was finished. Said out of the bad batch. I told them I would baby it until they got a good transmission and then took it back in and swapped out the second bad transmission.

You are entitled to a rental if covered under warranty. You can rent and demand reimbursement.

They bear the burden to prove ANY modification caused the part to break, tune, power adder, etc. You can sue under the Manguson-Moss warranty act for attorney fees and damages. I can send a threat to sue letter and some follow up for $200.00. I have a web site http://divorcefor399.com
Website has lots of info. including how to view any Louisiana law on La. Legislature web site. Working on a page for advise on DWI.

The output shaft from the transmission is an issue. I have two clients whom have already broken theirs. Unfortunately there are no upgrades currently, but we are working with a machinist to develop a 300m heat treated unit to upgrade for those people who have this issue, its going to be the weak link i believe here.

We also have seen that carrier bolts back out, or twist and sheer off causing the drive-shaft to sheer or twist. Whats bad is the fact the gas tanks are back there, and defiantly will get damaged...

Here is something that is a great idea BMR is releasing this soon, an I have several kits on preorder, i think this is really a great safety device for all to consider.

I just got mine back from the dealer. They installed a new tranny and the rear ficial because it was melted from the GMP exhaust they installed. Before i left the guy said it was melting because of the headers. Took them Almost 2 weeks to get it back to me. I do have HP tune, 1"7/8 long tubes , off road pipes, 25% under drive pully, and a air intake.

they have decided after 2 months they will fix it under warranty !!! the reason it took so long is because cutbacks. They had to send my driveshaft out to another company (metal specialists) and found imperfections in the metal my number is 1297 hope i was the only one that was a painful 2 months!

2 months, just to decide if they will honor the warranty...

Outstanding.

GM brass wonders why they have a problem selling cars.

This needs to be addressed by someone up high. Three months is RIDICULOUS for any answer from GM. ALL these issues with the drivetrain are making me seriously doubt buying the car.

i have broken 2 sets of bolts 1 coupler and twisted 1 driveshaft all replaced under warranty .I only have 5200 miles on the car it will be a year old 12/29/10. Im afraid to thrash on it and break again it seems that the bolts holding the coupler to the rear start to bend to the point they break.Does anyone have a fix for this i dont want to lemon the car but what good is it if you cant drive it for what it was built for.After all this car has a comp mode in the computer never been drag raced just wild burn outs.
