I am very sorry to report that my wife's 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP is at the doctors office. They are doing a transmission replacement. Yep it only took about 1 week after symptoms started showing up before it went completely out. I am also sorry to report that in our area it is going to cost about $3000.00 to fix. We checked wit two mechanics and a dealer. All said the same price. Sorry it isn't good news.

Add me to the list. 96,000 miles (6 months past warranty) transmission totally failed at a traffic light! Had to leave the car 5 hours away to have the $3300 transmission rebuild done. So I have that to pay, plus rental car, lost work and a hotel stay.

And I should add that this is the second GM transmission that has failed for me in the past two years. We have an 05 Chevy Trailblazer whose transmission had to be entirely replaced at only 65,000 miles, again stranding us in another state.
Over 40 years of owning cars and I've never had these issues with automatic transmissions until we started buying GM products.

The District Specialist called me today and they offered to reimburse me for half the cost of the transmission repair. I consider that to be fair and appreciate General Motors standing behind their vehicles, even when the warranty has recently expired.

So how did you start this process and what do I need to do????? We have just replaced the transmission in my wife's 2006 Grand Prix GXP at around 70,000 miles. That's $3,700 worth of crap. Had to replace the radiator too because is was so plugged with aluminum from the original tranny crapping out. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the advice. I went to the Pontiac website and sent them a message. They replied I sent them the information they asked for. I actually had a real person to call me and talk to me about oug car & the problems we had.
JUST A LITTLE ADVICE FOR THOSE POOR PEOPLE UNFORTUNATE ENOUGH TO BUY ONE OF THOSE CARS WITH THE CRAPPY TRANSMISSION.....YOU HAVE TO TAKE IT TO A GM DEALER TO HAVE IT FIXED OR PONTIACC WILL NOT HELP YOU WITH ANYTHING!!!!
Our car quit in my hometown that has no GM dealer. My wife had it towed to a trusted mechanic there. They did the repairs needed to the car & did an amazing job with it, It runs like a new car now. But Pontiac told me they would do nothing due to the fact that a GM dealer didn't do the work. I got a quote from a GM service center & the price was almost exactly what our hometown mechanic charged. Around $3,100.00 It would be worth that for Pontiac to " HELP " with anything.
