Auto tranny replaced

Just got the 09 back from the dealers. It quit shifting. The 2nd time since warranty ran out at 36,000. First time it took a shift solenoid and $550. This time a different shift problem and grindings in the tranny. Dealer wanted to know rebuild or replace? My regular tranny guy told me the 09 tranny isn't a good rebuilder and he would replace it, but he can't get new except thru a dealer. His cost, higher then the dealer quote. New tranny came with 5 year 100,000 warranty, don't know why they couldn't offer that on the original. Cost, with tearing down the old and finding problem, then replacing with new. Just under $5,000. I don't have to worry about driving it for a while, I'm too sore to sit down.

Shit for that price your part of the way to a ls swap and that comes with a tranny.

You could prob do a swap yourself to an ls for under 10k

We needed to get it back on the road as soon as poss. The dealer had it from Fri. to Mon. a little over a week. It's RHD that the wife uses on her mail route. What pisses me is they could only warrant the original for 36,000, but the replaced tranny comes with 100,000 5yr.
