Chevrolet Avalanche, Transmission, Truck

the midgate glass on my Bermuda Blue 06 LT avalanche is cracked. only the abs plastic is cracked but it is cracked in the lower left corner and it lets water in the cab behind the rear seat. the chevrolet dealer in clovis ca told me that its a common problem and they sell a lot of them. right in the middle of my talking to G.M. my avalanche was stolen. after the insurance paid me for my avalanche. The city of Palmdale Ca. Called me and told me that had found my truck. the insurance told me that i would have to bid on the truck Copart.com witch I did and got the truck Back for about $5700.00 the insurance paid me $24,000.00 for my truck. I had allready bought a new 2011 avalanche L.T.Z. loaded in the steel green met. went out the outher day to wash my 2011 ava while cleaning the windows found my rear window is cracked the dealer replaced it. mand i told the service writer that if it crackes again i will be back and i will be inppspecting that rear window every time i wash the avalanche. and i suggest every avalanche and Cad EXT owner to look at the back window. the price of that window is $726.00 list cost is $545.00 so look at yours befor warranty runs out

I apologize that you're experiencing these concerns with your transmission. Our Customer Assistance Center agents on the phone operate independently of the forum, and so it is very likely that unless the agent was perusing Edmunds on his or her own time that they would not be entirely familiar. All of our interactions are handled on a case-by-case basis at our level, as well.
Were you planning on getting this looked into? I hope everything goes well! If you decide to work with a dealership on this please keep us posted on the progress there, and if we can be of assistance please get in touch via email (socialmediagm.com).

#117 of 164 Anyone have a problem with the newer 6 sp tranny?
Apr 05, 2012 (6:26 am)
From 2010 and newer, the Avalanches have a 6 speed tranny, vs the older 4 speed tranny. Has anyone experienced a problem with this newer transmission?

Oh yeah. Look at my forum post #56. Bought my Avalanche new in March 2010 & lost the torque converter while cruising at highway speed in October 2010 with less than 13K on the truck. Some other problems at the outset too, but they are noted in Post #56. Doesn't help build much faith in the future performance of the vehicle, but it has held up better since Oct 2010. There's about 41K on it now.

My transmission just went on my 2002 Z71. Had to drive back home from my family's easter party on back roads because of this. Yes driving home on Easter and my tranny goes out! A one hour drive turned into a 4 hour drive. How fun!

I understand the misery! When mine failed, we were on a trip we had been planning for nearly a year. The trip was blown and there's no way GM will ever compensate for that, regardless the terms of the warranty.

just had it happen to me today. 2007 with a little over 57,100 miles. Lost D, 3, and R. Was able to limp to the dealership with 2 and 1 but slipping bad. This sucks, cause I've never towed anything or put any stress on this truck. Just waiting to hear how much they want to fix it. I'm sure I'll have to get someone else when I hear their wild price.
