Vehicles with a 6speed automatic transmission may develop one or more of the following faults related to a broken 35R clutch wave plate inside the transmission: Illumination of the Check Engine Light with code P0716, P0776, P0717, P0777, P2714, P2715, and/or P02723, loss of reverse gear, slipping or harsh 3rd or 5th gear shift. Removal and dis-assembly of the transmission will be required to replace the broken 35R wave plate. It is also extremely important that all debris from the failed part be cleaned from the transmission while it is disassembled in order to try and prevent future problems.Google+

No warning signs at all, no check engine lights and no symptoms before hand. All of a sudden my wife said the car wouldn't go past 20 mph. She drove it home and swapped cars with me. I noticed no reverse, but could put it into drive and drive it up the flatbed. Took it to a local Tansmission shop and they are taken it apart right now. Pretty sure I need a rebuilt. I won't bring it back to a GM dealer because of a past bad experiences. Basically ripped me off for $500 to replace bad spark plugs. With genuine GM spark plugs that went bad to begin with.
5 year warantee was up in April with only 68,000 miles on it,
Shop told me $2200 for a rebuilt.
Thank you GM for building a crappy car.

started shifting hard out of 3rd and 5th gear then check engine light came on. Codes where P0700 and P0716 took it to the dealership and they said it was the 3-5-R waveplate. It was covered under the powertrain warrenty

Just purchased a 2009 Chevy treverse 11/29/14, Well, while driving on 95 going SB my vehicle would not go pass 60 mi, then 40 mi, and last stopped at 20 mi. Needless to say it would not go into Reverse neither, so so disappointed. No extended coverage and now I founds out that its no longer covered under Chevy's warranty, as of 12/05/2014. The dealer ship did NOT inform me of this at all. In fact, telling me that I was still covered under Chevy's warranty. With only 26,876 mi on this vehicle at the time of purchase. Now, my truck sits because I cannot afford the transmission repair of almost $3000.00 dollars. Sickening because I'm now stuck with a useless vehicle and a car note. My prayers goes out to everyone who's going through similar situations. GM really needs to do a recall on these transmissions. Hopefully, these reviews will be picked up by the News and social media to put some fire under the feet of the CEO of GM. Especially when my two kids were stuck on 95 in a vehicle that should've NEVER been released on the market.

Same as noted. Slipping while backing up. The Check light came on many times I had the dealer look at it and was told there was no problem. Now that the warranty is up and the problem is so noticeable they know what the problem is but it's now my out of pocket cost.

My car will not go in reverse...and it slips in the other gears...the engine light is on....I know it needs a new transmission but cannot afford it. so there it sits
Had this issue at 66,000 miles. It was covered by warranty, it took a while to repair because the problem they fixed twice came back two times in two weeks. Then they said the transmission needed to be replaced. Now a 20 months later same issue. They tried to tell me it was out of warranty, and I was going to have to pay. But they had gave me a 36 mo. 50,000mi. warranty that they not to honor. Then they called me and said You're covered by the warranty. Ok good, we'll call you went the car is ready. Got a phone call today, there's a problem GM said you have to pay. ? then he started a few other repairs that I would need in the future. I said wait a minute, I not paying for anything. You told me that it was covered. Well we're going to try to get GM to cover some of the bill. Right now very confused.
