Haven't been around or on here in a while, but I'm posting to say that my transmission went in my '06 W/T.

35,300miles. V6. No towing/hauling of anything ever.

Just got off exit ramp and no power to the wheels. Thank god it's still under warranty. A bearing went and tore up the entire inside. GM is replacing the entire thing.

I've now learned that just because it's new doesn't mean it will not let you down.

it sucks, but honestly, it happens every day, to newer/lower mileage trucks

at least you're under warranty, thank God for that

whats funny is while im pulled over I see and rusted beat ass 75ish K20 fly by me

I'm pretty sure the tranny in my '88 k5 with 342s and 35s is still kicking since I see it around from time to time and it hurts

yeah happened to me at 36K. warranties are really helpful, but ive heard horror stories about people bring their car into the dealer all the time. offer a 10 year warranty, but if you have to bring it in every 2-3 months then i dont want it.

One of our 07 2500 hd's 4wd lost a 4l85 (i think thats right) at 5k on the OD :jawdrop:


It then broke a cam at about 32k. Dunno the details behind that.
