The dealer says the hesitation I am experiencing is normal, I say bull.
I have been driving for over 30 years and have driven many automatic
The problem started about two weeks ago, and they cant explain that
either. Just "it is in the manual. The manual says "do not put vehicle
in reverse from drive while moving forward period! I don't!
I have to stop, put ot in reverse, and wait about 2 or 3 seconds then
it won't act funny. mmm I guess the method of rocking the vehicle to get
out of snow is out of the question. Maybe I won't need it with 4 wheel.
Anyway I am not happy and will contact the customer support number.
Has anyone else driving an '05 Colorado had this experience?
GM May not have a "Fix" for the Problem. I would hazzard a guess of low
pressure at the reverse valve causing a slow opening.
I Asked a buddy of mine who is a Tech at a GMC Dealer (He does
Buick's, GMC's, & Hummer's). He hasn't heard anything about problems
with the transmission, Yet he says the dealer he works for has not sold
many of the trucks.
My Advice is to drive it normial. If the problem gets worse, take it in
so it can atleast be re-documented. Then if the transmission fails, and
not sue to abuse, you should not have a hassle getting it replaced.
