    except unlike Nissan the repair will be covered by warranty, cost 1/10th the price, and GM will actually fix the problem. :mamoru:

    Meh that's why I'd NEVER buy a first year production car :hsughno:

    Big deal, takes a few years for any automaker to get the kinks worked out of a new car :dunno:

    I was wondering if it had a T56 in it. No way a T56 is breaking at those power levels unless something is up.

    they've done it before. 10 bolts on the 4th gen, 1st gen CTS-V differentials, and the occasional synchro on the Corvette. All covered under warranty for the most part.

    BOTH cars that suffered transmission problems did not have the TRANSMISSION FAILURE covered but they still have the full factory warranty. Launch control never voided the warranty on any GTR. If you would search for the facts instead of join the mayhem, maybe you'd realize this.
