this will throw no codes ....also on shutdown this all resets so if they then go for a short ride it may not do it right away..

I can feel it trying to find a gear, it's almost like a gear thats missing about 1/4-1/2 of its teeth missing. engine drives as normal like its in gear, then all of a sudden BANG its moving again. Also the lag between the time you press the gas pedal until the time it finds a gear is ridiculous! right around 3-4 seconds.
I'm hoping that this other dealership can at least let me drive and show the mechanic whats going on.
I also hope that this isn't the same transmission they used in the Equinox. If so, I'm looking at a new transmission at around 60-70K. (my sister in law had one)

So, Dealership says there is an issue, however at the moment I am unable to be without my vehicle. it may be a solenoid issue or possibly mechanical. Due to my age, they are unable to provide me with a loaner, therefore I will have to wait until I get my girlfriends cavalier running again.

Of course you know, the longer you drive it with a known problem, the less interest GM will have in fixing it for free. They can/may claim you were aware of the problem and would not allow GM to repair, therefore GM no longer will cover the fix.Ray

You purchased a car, with warranty, in good faith. The warranty states that you will be supplied with a rental, or a loaner, car while yours is being repaired. The dealer is not living up to the customer's expectations.
And................I still say, that is you continue to drive your vehicle after the dealership has advised that it requires repair, and the repairs get worse, GM may not cover it.
GO AFTER THEN FOR A LOANER. Tell them to fix the insurance problem, or you will talk to a lawyer. You paid for a service and you are not receiving it.

Do you know any lawyers that work for free / cheap?

In your case, take the policy way first (and, it's cheap, free). Call the 800 number in the owner's manual. GM customer service must have a policy covering the insurance issue.
