On just released vehicles and new design engines or transmissions it is SOP to just replace and not repair any faulty engine or transmissions (even a leak may get you a new component) for GM. They usually want the engine/trans back for inspection, it has been this way since the mid 1990's.

It's not that it's that you have to gut all the parts out of the tranny to put that one in. If it was something they could swap they would just send the smaller part. Shipping is $$$ expensive for a tranny.

Took my Camaro in for its first oil change July 10th, had them look into a sound I had noticed when letting out the clutch in 1st and 2nd. Shortly after found out I needed a new transmission. A problem with the transmission output shaft having to much play, second one my dealership caught. Tranny arrived today, however I am waiting on a technicain to fly in from Vancouver later today to take a look at the car. vin# 14368

Broken Transmission Output Shaft

Broke my output shaft Sunday night. Vin 13782. Third or fourth launch in competition mode. Also made three or four with traction control and competition mode turned off between 2500 and 3500 rpm. I am afraid this is not limited to a certain batch of vehicles. 4200 rpm dumps too much energy into the drive train. I don't think ABS kicking in to limit wheel spin can help either. ABS is supposed to be less aggressive in competition mode. ABS may kick in too soon and be part of the problem. I think competition mode will break any drive train sooner or later.

This appears to be similar to the problem they had with the Nissan GT-R last year. They soon said use of launch mode on solid surface voids warranty. They said it was only for getting out of ice or slippery surface. This year they reduced rev limiter from around 4200 to 3200 rpm.

DON'T USE COMPETITION MODE. You don't need it. Turn it and traction control off by holding button down for seven seconds. Launch between 3000 and 3200 rpm by driving out. Don't dump clutch but don't slip it either. CAUTION: slipping the clutch will burn up the clutch. Let clutch out like taking off from a stop and press gas pedal like taking off from a stop, don't stomp it. This should be much easier on entire drive line and will help 60 foot times.

I love my car but I am holding on to my JD Powers new car survey to see how long this takes to be repaired. More than a week is too long. If you haven't returned your survey yet, you may want to hold onto it.

and how do they know you were abusing it? If they are defining a burn out as Abuse, I guess we are all guilty. Ask to speak to the GM rep in the area.

This whole output shaft crap....is exactly that...... crap !!
GM still hasn't stepped up on this...unless I missed it.
So... I guess we can't get on these cars to see if it's an affected shaft, because then we'll be "abusing our cars", meanwile GM won't tell us if our cars fall into the vin range affected.

Nope, there's nothing to miss.

I'd rather not buy a Camaro that cannot safely burn rubber and remain under warranty, if that indeed is the case.

Could you please post your vin range.

I'm hoping they've fixed this on later cars.

Everybody at GM should really understand that they are screwing over ENTHUSIASTS here for the most part by keeping a lid on this and denying warranty's for some of these with defective units. By now, a list of all the affected range of these "bad batch" of units should be out. This whole issue of "We aint fixing it till its broke", oh and "we may deny the claim because you abused the car" for a broken output shaft is also crap. I called up GM's customer service with my concerns and no call back as of yet with any response.

My VIN is in the 22517 range..Has anyone had this issue in this range?
