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.
#425 of 498 Oil tranny temp gauge
Apr 29, 2012 (5:01 am)
I know the 2006 GPGT w/supercharged V-6 has a temp readout on Tranny oil and I try to keep it under 235 degrees on the freeway runs..At 90+ outside temp cruising at 80+ the tranny gets a little warm..Try installing a oil cooler and have fun..
Approaching 70k and tranny works fine. It will go to a new owner if it misses a shift..Pronto!!!
#426 of 498 2004 Grand Prix Trans Issue
May 03, 2012 (8:26 pm)
I have a 2004 grand prix GT2 and when I am driving in heavy traffic for a undetermined amount of time I notice a delay in shifting from 1-2 and then 2-3. Although it does not do this constantly only after being driven in stop and go traffic or an hour plus trip. Could this be a shift solenoid issue or transmission itself? Any insight would be appreciated.

I just had the same problems with my 2002 GT. The problems started last week and quickly got worse. At the fourth place I tried, he diagnosed it within 10 minutes and had it fixed in 2 hours. My catalytic converter was plugged full. He rodded it out and now it runs better than ever. Tons more power, smooth shifting. Might be something to look into.

My gp has 121,000 miles on it now. Everything has ran great than all of a sudden it seemed like there was a delay in shifting. I drove it about 10 minutes home and it started shifting really hard. Like slamming into gear. Any ideas?

Just bought one from the a Chevrolet dealer. Love the car! has 66,000 miles on it, runs pretty good, cant get over how nice the car drives, have always been a Pontiac/GM fan. I have a stock 79 T/A That I have owned for 20+ years. Just today in my GP I noticed the trans temp at 215 degrees driving home, heard the tranny fluid cavitating as I exited the freeway making turn. I didnt think much of it but it has shifted hard in normal city traffic a couple of times and this and other threads are starting to worry me. Is there a fix for this? I have done some research and discovered what appears to be flaws in the way it was manufactured based on what others have said. Please Reply!! This is my daily driver!

Looks like I'm joining the parade of 2006 GXP owners with transmission problems.
Mine has a whopping 47,000 miles on it and today I noticed slipping in the transmission. It's been garage kept, all required services done at earlier than requested intervals including a change of transmission fluid jut 2000 miles ago......
I guess it's off to the local GM dealer for a "screwin."
