#433 of 498 2007 Grand Prix GXP
Jul 10, 2012 (5:16 pm)
Correction to my first post....My GXP is a 2007.....and conveniently for GM the warranty ran out in March...15 weeks ago.
I bought it new and only have 47,000 miles on it....and NEVER used the paddles...not once....so they can't blame it on that.
I just dropped it off to my GM dealer and I'm awaiting their verdict.
This GXP is my 17th Pontiac...all new....and like "bbaisden" says above, I'm hoping GM realizes this and does something to correct this OBVIOUS design flaw in their vehicle.

I also bought mine new in June of 2005 & have never had a problem like this with any other vehicle I have owned. I am on my second transmission which the dealer rebuilt but still have a severe heat issue. I'm thinking 260 degrees is more than a little too warm considering the tranny slip's so bad I'm not sure it is going to shift! When you add the transmission issue & GM's service tech's telling me burning a quart of oil every 1000 miles is "normal", good bye GM!
Good luck with your verdict, please keep us posted.

I just received a call from NORTH COUNTY BUICK-CADILLAC-GMC. The service writer said they found "debris" in the transmission pan. He needed approval from me for a $500 authorization to go further into the transmission. He then stated that he will "attempt to contact GM, but if GM determines it to be "abuse"...then they won't help?
Abuse? I just had the damn car there in January where THEY serviced the transmission including flushing....and saw no problems....then suddenly I became an "abuser" of my car? The car, like the 17 other Pontiacs before it, that gets all of the required maintenance performed EARLIER than requested by GM and ONLY at GM certified dealers? The same car that could be brought back to the showroom and displayed as new? Abuser?
It's easy to see where this is going......but if you think I'm the kind of guy that's going to roll over....you have another thing coming.

My 2006 GT just turned 70k, and all systems are working great, original brakes show no signs of rotor warping, however being a SW Fla car it is hot most of the time and tranny temps do get a wee bit warm..
This car was a bargain buy 61 months ago and for the current driving I do it is a good performer..The S/C engine handles the a/c well and lots of driving is done with sunroof open and a/c running..Overall gas mileage is around 20mpg, interstate rolling it gets real around 24 mpg at elevated speeds..
Will dump it around 90k miles to avoid the expense of a tranny which is probably an expense of 1/2 the car's value..
Good Luck on with your GT..

I'm sure this is going to come as a huge shock to you and everyone else on here, but my transmission just blew AGAIN! Stranded me in a drive thru, I had to get out and ask the people behind me to push me out of the line!!!!
The rebuild didn't even last 20,000 miles! markg16, I believe you mentioned something about your brother in a previous post. I would really like to get in touch with both of you.
