Wow, someone chewed through a few gears . Sorry, I don't mean to laugh at your misfortune, that has to suck horribly...but I have to wonder, is tranny failure a common issue with the 2000+ Bonnes? I'm going to be buying an SSEi soon, and probably with higher mileage (60K+ most likely) becasue thats really all I can afford with the baby coming in december...should I be worried?

seems more and more that its getting to be a commong problem...

The series II 3800 SC was attached to the 4T60-E HD for 1 year... 1996.....

In 97 that engine started using the all new 4T65-E....

But it seems that the 00-01'* were having some issues with the 4th gear splines, if memory serves....

In any event, thats not a pretty sight..

Check over on clubgp -pretty much all years of the 4T65E HD have their fair share of probs -mostly higher mileage (75k+), but still quite a few with less.

My 1999 SSEi had it'* trans rebuilt twice by 145k.

Trannies are the same. The 00+ are heavier cars.

we still haven't pulled the tranny yet. But we're planning on replacing it with a GM rebuilt.

Is it common for this to basically happen over the span of 1 day?! The transmission never acted up until 2 hours before I was stranded on the side of the road?!

is this only a problem on the HD models or does the 65E have the same issues as well?

Ok now you guys have me all nervous, dammit...

If I end up buying a 2000 or 2001 Bonne, should I just expect to replace the tranny at some point? Or am I not reading that correctly, and really its ALL of the 2000-current Bonnevilles that suffer from the same problem?
