Powertrain Warranty expired too soon
My transmission just went out. Took it to the dealer to have repaired under 5 year, 100,000 mile powertrain warranty, and they told me the 5 years expired two weeks ago. I am now working with Chevy to see if they will help me out at all. I am just wondering if anyone else had any luck with warranty assistance from Chevy right after warranty expired.

I wonder though if they go off of manufacture date rather then model year, the 07s would have come out mid year 06, as stupid as that is...IMO

he probably bought it when it first came out so about this time in 06 is when they would have put out the 07's, but either way that is some bad luck. sorry to hear about it.David
