I have a 96' SSEi who'* tranny just went out at 83K. She had 37K of reasonable driving w/ it'* first owner , then I got it

Mine didn't start slipping like most do, it just had some wierd noise come about that sounded like mini-backfires whenever I got above 3K RPM'*. An independent shop told me that it was a chain inside the tranny slipping, and the tech at my stealership confirmed that when he tore it down. I didn't even know there were chains in auto trannies...

Luckily enough, I have/had 2K left on my extended warranty that covered it all Also got a new sway-bar link and HVAC control unit too, and it looks like I might get a new air-compressor for the rear air-suspension, but on the downside, they knocked a button off my equalizer that they don't claim to have any responsibility for... :angry: I was happy to discover that my extended warranty paid for itself almost 2 times over though.

Anyways, what I was getting to, my cost not including labor, would've been a bit over $1600, and that'* for a brand new tranny, w/ a 3 year unlimited, nationwide GM warranty on labor and parts. Not too bad a deal, eh?
