Recently, I took my 2011 Cruze LT to the dealership for a transmission fluid & filter change because it has over 30,000 miles and there is no dip stick to check the color and smell of the fluid.
Since it is a new 6 speed automatic technology, it thought is was best to be on the safe side and change it. I left it at the dealership for service. Several hours later, I go a call from the dealership stating that they could not change the fluid or filter because the engine must be pulled to service the transmission. They said it has a 100,000 mile warranty. When I asked how much this service will cost when the car has 100,000 miles, I was told that they don't know because they have never done it!!!!!!
If the normal transmission fluid change costs $200 - $300, how much will it cost to pull the engine? $800 - $1,000.00
I an not sure that I want to find out the hard way. This car is a candidate for replacement at 80,000 - 90,000 miles.
Does Chevy have an answer to this problem???
