I bought a 2000 Monte Carlo ss new in Sept of 2000, I have 60,000 miles on it. The 4th gear is out of it and I have to have a new transmission put in it which is going to cost me between 1,300.00-1,600.00 to replace and they have to add a add on kit, if they have to add a add on kit what is the problem" I am very disappointed with Chevy products. I also have a 89 Chevy truck, which I bought used with 50,000 miles and I have had to put a new transmission in it 2 yrs ago, my daughter has a 99 Monte Carlo and has numerous problems in the last 2 yrs. I owned a 79 Chevy truck for 16 yrs which I bought new and never had any problems with it except for normal wear and tear on it. What has happened with the quality of Chevrolet" I am very disappointed. I should not be putting in a transmission in a 4 1/2 yr old car. I have taken very good care of the car changing oil, etc when it is due. You pay good money and it doesn't even last till you pay it off.

My main complaint is about my trans. I have a 2000 Monte Carlo the overdrive does not work so I take it to GM they said I had a code stored on my computer and that the problem was a control or pressure regulator. They made the repair, called me and said well we have good news, the code is now gone but your overdrive still does not work.they were willing to negotiate a possible share the cost or they may cover the whole cost depending upon what they found, yea right I had already spent 500 +, I said no and called GM's customer service.no help there. This problem was detected slightly after my warranty I feel that if a code is listed on the cars computer somehow the driver should be aware of it. I was probably driving with a defective part and not knowing it, causing major damage for who knows how long. The reason I am writing is because I check from time to time hoping to find a recall but every time I check all I find is more complaints on GM's 4T65E in a lot of other cars as well. I also have some of the other problems I see other people complaining about such as front brake and or caliper problems rattling and wearing out prematurely, heater core problems, they put stop leak in my oil and antifreeze without telling me, they did give me a ticket on that, about a week or two later they sent me a letter stating they if I paid to have any leaks repaired I may be untitled to refund and yes I now have an oil leak. If this letter can't help me out maybe it can help someone else out. I feel there are plenty of other people you probably have not heard from.than you.

When the accelerator pedal was pressed from a complete stop the vehicle moved forward slightly then stalled. Vehicle was towed to the dealer who indicated that the automatic transmission had gone bad. The consumer was told that this is a common problem.

While driving at any speed up hill and with no warning the transmission decelerated even when the consumer's foot was on the accelerator and it was difficult for the consumer to control the vehicle. Dealer notified. The transmission leaked fluid and barely moved. The dealer replaced the transmission drive assembly and the extension housing. The transmission slipped and slammed into gear. The dealer replaced the transmission again.
