I wonder if your car had the same problem mine is having.I just bought my 07 SS a couple of months ago. It had 66k on it. I asked my dealer to run a service log on the vin and found out the tranny was replaced at 55k. Before that, the converter, the computer, etc. Don't know if they were just guessing or what, but it runs good now.
I'm getting ready to put in a ZZperformance shift kit. I've heard a lot about them. I'll let you know how it goes.the first models, of the ss v8, 2006 had the most problems...my daughter has a 2006 monte ss v8 and tranny went out about 40,000 miles ,warranty was 36,000 miles ,on all the 2006 models... we complained to them, and they split half the cost with us .. now at 80,000 plus miles, no problems rkvette
yea they did that with dodge rams to, my stepdad bought an 07 mega cab then in like 08 or 09 they came out with a new BETTER body style and a longer powertrain warrantychevys are not the only brand to have problems !!! 2009 subaru blows its engine in auto-week magazine long termer testing, at 15,000 miles. i had a new 1990 ford taurus v6 that had a piston slap at 5,000 miles..ford replaced with a new crate engine,said some models were bored out to much ! bought my daughter a brand new 1992 ? ford probe/ of the first ones made ... motor was very noisy on start up!! ford said continue to drive it and we did, till it blew up, on cold christmas night... ford said heads were made in mexico, and oil holes were not large enough,was dual overhead cams v6 engine.. had only 2,000 miles on it.. also was hit by a snow plow, while at ford dealership lot , paint and panels never aligned up right.. daughter will never own a ford car again, she drives a 2006 chevy monte carlo ss v8 and she loves it with 86,000 miles .. i have owned some corvettes, and yet to blow a motor,or tranny, all sticks , maybe are stronger ? all corvettes from 2007 and up have the 100,000 warranty deal-that includes zo6/505 hp and zr1 with 638 hp.rkvette.
Limbo is a good word to describe it. It doesn't matter if I take off fast or slow, it almost always drops out of gear going from 1st to 2nd. It also doesn't know when to shift up instead of red lining. That's like hitting a wall hard enough to throw you forward.i think its because of it being in the shift range or point so it doesn't know to up-shift or down shift so its in limbo period
