Verified

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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    THE TRANSMISSION MADE A GRINDING SOUND JUST PRIOR TO PULLING INTO THE DRIVEWAY. NEXT MORNING WHEN I WENT TO PUT IT IN REVERSE THERE WAS NO REVERSE GEAR. DEALERSHIP WANTS $4,300 TO REPAIR AND $5,200 FOR A NEW ONE.

    Transmission suddenly didn't shift leaving a traffic light. engine light came on, no directions but would not come out of low gear we traveled several miles, stopped many times until we got to the Cramer Chevrolet dealership, which was closed. We left the car overnight (it was about 9:00 PM Friday night) My wife and I went back Saturday AM, explained our problem, couldn't help until Monday A M. Called said clutch in transmission went out. $2600. end of story, end of my dealing with Chevrolet. car always garaged. Never driven hard.
