2012 Cruze 1.8 liter engine.
Transmission Solenoid malfunction. The car throw code while driving down interstate. Car drove for another 30 minutes without an issue until we could check the code. Can you replace the solenoid without replacing the transmission.
I only $2500 on the car. Should I even take it to the dealership. No warranty left.

I paid 12 X more for my 14 CRUZE. You can always take it to your trusted mechanic and if you have to visit the Dealer remember they always have free Coffee, sometimes Donuts, mine offers Popcorn.
