What? Yes they do. What trim package do you have? The filters are external to my knowledge.

There is a filter, but you have to tear apart the transaxle to get to it. Hence my very early initial service. I can't even imagine what it would cost to fix that 6 speed auto out of warranty.

The 6T70 filter is internal and not easily serviced

They have an internal filter that requires disassembly of the transaxle case to access. Please see above

Woops my mistake. But from the pics on autpartwarehouse it looks like they messed up. This one clearly looks like an oil filter. WTF

Either way this job sounds like PITA! Good ole' GM still screwing up. Is gm trying to go back to the "lifetime transmission"? Yes GM tried this before and miserably failed

The filter isnít designed to be serviced and the cost to remove and reinstall is not going to happen. at what miles is good to change the fluid?

What's recommended from GM?

Always remember that your final destination... is the same as everyone elses.

Front and rear's? I would replace the top mounts/bearings also esp the fronts as they tend to rust out and see more wear (more wight in frt obv).

I wish I would have replaced the top mounts when doing mine as they are now making a clicking noise from the slop/play. Just another thing to add to the gigantic list I have.
