If you want it fixed for free then take it to a dealer. The warranty is usually good for a time/mileage period regardless of owner. That could of course be different.I’ll drive it til it breaks... I don’t want parts swapped in it.. an the trans taken out 2-3 times to swap parts.. i have seen other posts on here the dealers are parts changers.. they read a tsb or other issues on a data base that other techs have found an they guess an change parts... does anyone know if the GS has an external trans cooler of if it’s just lined into one of the end tanks of the rad really haven’t look yet
They shouldn’t be just swapping parts. The only way a dealer gets paid for a repair is by replacing the actual failed part. Things that fail under warranty are sent back and inspected. They start throwing parts and they’re not getting paid. I’ve seen it happen more than once when I was working at dealerships. Your transmission denying shifts and slipping means it’s gone into failsafe mode. It’s saving itself from catastrophic failure.I know the code is a generic code.. an it makes it harder for a tech at a dealer to pinpoint what’s wrong I don’t want them to guess an play parts changers.. I know what I am doing... it will go to the dealer eventually.. either driven there or by flat bed!
Flare shifts every time or just when you’re hammering it? Mine flares on the 2-3 when you have the pedal to the floor if you short shift it. I assumed it was normal so I look forward to hearing what they tell you.Yes I get that. I have an appointment at a dealer they didn’t seem to concerned about getting it in right away. They gave me an appointment for Monday the 8th told them everything that was happening. The issue is I don’t want the trans fixed because I know it’s been slipping so even if it’s a solenoid or valve body issue.. i know the clutch plates have taken a beating so I am sure you get where I am going. Let it break they can put a new transmission in it an I bet that’s what they will do.. it’s not just 6th or 5th that is slipping it flare shifts going from 2nd to 3rd an sometimes 1st-2nd so I know the clutch plates aren’t in good shape. It didn’t really do any of this when I took it for a 10 min test drive before I bought it.. first time I had an issue was when I was doing 70mph on my turnpike near my house an I didn’t go 70mph on the test drive... it is what it is the dealer can figure it out an we will go from there. I know a few people that work at the one I am taking it to
