I was wondering how many people have trouble getting the truck in reverse,and how many times it takes you?
I have had manual trans for ever and this is very much not good when i buy a new truck and pay cash and come to find out, it has a 20% chance out of 100 or 1 in 5 times it won`t go in reverse. Chevy said it was normal... I would like to know..

I have the 5 speed trans,and getting it into reverse has been a problem too.Normal??? Maybe nowadays it is.When I was younger,the transmissions shifted in and out of gear very smooth and easy.This is the first manual I've had in 20 something years,and will be my last.The lack of quality is only one reason.4X4 is much better with an automatic then a standard trans,so I'll be going back to an auto.

well this document is from a chev dealer the id #1872012 this is some of what the doc says manual transmission 5 speed-Aisin 5 speed(RPO MA5)Affected vehicles (GMT355-GMT345-GMX020)(Quote)
A customer can expect a blocked reverse shift 10 times in 50 attempts. Engineering has determined that this condition is normal.the correct procedure to follow when shifting for block out is to.
1)shift into 1st gear
2)move vehicle forward slight
3)stop and shift into reverse
well if you are in traffic and need to reverse fast or back out of the way of a train your screwed.but my mom 73 who has had stick shifts alot and drives tractor told chev that if anything happens to her because she can`t back up they are responable,because they know the problem.She also wrote to the bbb.Well 13 letters in all.I also sent stuff to t.v. to get the word out about 06-07-colorado/canyon/hummer h3/pontiac Solstice/07 saturn sky.About the normal 5 speed trans the won`t go into reverse 20% of the time..If anybody wants me to send the paper-work let me know

I have a problem shifting into first gear when I am at a stop light. I brought it into service at Weseloh and Sons in San Juan Capistrano. They refered to the same service bulletin (#1872012) and sent me on my way. They did admit they felt what I felt but that it was not having a problem at this time. I called GM and they want me to go back to the same people and have them drive with me in it to see the problem. They had the car 2 days already and only test drove it once. What else can I do? Can't they fix it or get a new transmision- The block-out happens more often than 20% of the time
