2017 2SS Transmission Problems?

Post by Nightfall2SS » Tue Feb 07, 2017 12:57 pm

Anyone hear if the 2017 Camaro SS is having transmission problems? My torque converter had major issues and was replaced under warranty.

After a month or two with the new converter, I'm noticing it acting up again. Shifts hard from 1st to 2nd. When braking for a stop it downshifts hard. I'm waiting for the clutches to wear and have it start slipping again. This is really disappointing and making me wish I went with the manual transmission instead.

Sorry to hear you are having issues already, that sucks. I would take it back to your dealership and have it scanned, and have them check the fluid filter. I have a 2011 SS and the filter split due to a high fluid spike and there was a TSB out for this issue on those cars, maybe that is what is happening, couldn't hurt to check as my tranny was doing some of those things you are experiencing...Good luck my friend.

I'm very sorry to hear that. I have a 2014 Camaro SS and haven't had any transmission problems. I would just say stay on the dealership to continue to fix it and even contact GM directly with your concerns. Good luck.
