View Full Version : Question: 2010 GS Transmission Problem 2000 Miles

Well need some feedback from those more technical than I. Have a 2010 GS manual transmission. Intermittently when down shifting, shifter will pop out of 2nd gear. Dealer said that the syncromesh is bad and is rebuilding the transmission under warranty of course. If you are a gear head, does that sound like a feasable diagnosis. Has any of you experienced this yet if you own the same kind of GS?????
Appreciate the feed back.

If it "pops out of gear" upon decel, then I'd look at bent shift fork or linkage. It might just need to be adjusted as these manual linkages are critical for positive shifting.

You must be kidding!! A new GS? Things like that make it hard to be a "dedicated" corvette person!!! :bash:bash

Well got the word today that the 2nd gear is defective and the syncro is defective. GM has agreed to give me a new transmission. Problem is that parts are not available for the 2010 GS. Wait time 10 days to 2 weeks. If you think it takes trime to order a new 2010 GS, the wait is just as bad for parts. ;shrug Will keep you yo to date.

Sorry to hear about your tranny problems. I have just over 5K on my GS 6 speed and NO problems what so ever. This is my 9th Corvette and they just keep getting better. The only problem I have EVER had was the steering wheel lock out on the 2000 FRC. I still loved that car with a passion. Almost wish I hadn't sold that one. I guy maid an unbelievable offer on it and it was gone.

I wonder how the repair will relate to matching# in the future?
