Looks like GM better start stocking up on replacement AY6 trannies for our cars!

Either that or they better start making the necessary repair/replacement parts available ASAP to the dealers.

Add me to your list. I have to pull hard down to 2nd gear every time I shift. This can be at moderate driving to hard driving. This has happened from day one. I installed a Barton short throw and it made it feel more evident. I call it a bind because I have not ever heard a grind. I have 5500 miles on mine. I have noticed when sitting still and the clutch in, it will shift very smoothly.

Ditto... Exact same problem here.

When the clutch is punched in quickly it seems like it doesnt disengage, thus making the second gear shift a problem.

Ordered a Barton Shifter. We'll see what happens.

2500 Miles.

This is pretty annoying... I didnt just pay for a sports car that cannot be driven like a sports car. I hope GM will make this right.

It did the grind going into 2 with the shop guy in the passenger seat as we left the dealership. He said pull over and let me try it. It doesn't do it again while he is driving so he dismisses it as me not being able to drive a stick.

The transmission also started making a sound at 3500rpm and up. It sounds kinda like when your garden hose isnt connected all the way. Of course it didn't do this when he was in the car.. just on the way there and on the way home...

I am going to call the dealer and offer to pay the labor for them to pull the inspection cover and take a look at the gears to see whats going on in hopes that he will then find what I am feeling periodically in my commute to and from home. I am guessing it should be possible to do this in 1hr shop labor, so say $110??

Under load 1st to 2nd gear grind from day one. Throw out bearing / input shaft bearing noise. Burning clutch smell at times. Has been back to dealer 4 times, they said it was normal and waiting for GM up dates on fix? (BS)

Re: Aisin AY6 Transmission Research?
Mike, Yes we have. And we have determined that this stock transmission is CRAP. This is why after crying,throwing temper tantrums,arguing with Toyota and embarrassing ourselves doing a high RPM 1st to 2nd GRINDING gear shift that Allan Phillips is developing a T-56 swap. Why don't you join us in the group buy. http://www.customtacos.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=142459

+1 on the GRIND from 1 to 2. Only solution so far is slowing down the shift. All other gears are fine. Also have the Hurst short-throw installed. Same problem before and after.
