Though I am sure most of you have read the same articles, the census among most car magazines is that the F40 transmission is not a good one. I believe it was Motortrend who said it best when reffering to it as "primative".

I am having the same problems as everyone else and getting the same response from the dealerships...."it supposed to be like that, there is nothing wrong with it".

I pursued the "transmission exchage" listed above. You will have to bend over backwards while jumping through hoops to make that happen. Oh and you'll be without a car for a few weeks while GM engineers "fiddle" with your tranny.

Suffice it to say, that we have a great car with a not-so-great transmission.

Just thought I'd throw that out there.
Happy St Paddy's day eveyone!!:beer:
Nikki and myself, seem to be the only people that don't have problems with the 6MT. :confused:

Grrr! The leather boot around the shifter is ripping in two spots now.
The boot around the shifter is not leather. It is a man-made material. :(

I would like to know your VIN's since I beleive that there has been a change in transmission in late 05 productions and 06 production.
You see, GM tech's say's that ALL G6 6 speed are the same and that ALL of them have a rough tranny. My challenge at this time is too find at least 1 (a single one) tranny that has no harshness and then I will be able to prove my point.

So if you can supply me with a VIN number I will be able to establish the date of production and this will help me to find a late production for comparision.

If ever you where located near to Montreal I would get those 2 GM specialists to test drive your cars and put them in front of normal trannies, but I expect you don't live that close to Montreal.

If ever I can get the VIN's it would help.

I'm desparate...
My car was built October,2005. This is stated on the tag in the door jamb. Which digits do you need from the VIN?

Well, the point was that it's now ripping.
I have a small tear in my shift boot, that is barely visible. I'm going to watch it though. I may just purchase a Leather shift boot, in the near future.
