Problems with GM 8 Speed Transmission

Owners of the Chevrolet Colorado and other models are complaining about hesitation and shifting issues.  Owners of the affected vehicles may be entitled to compensation.   Car complaints reports,  A General Motors 8-speed transmission lawsuit alleges fixes offered by the automaker haven’t solved problems with hard shifting, shaking, jerking, hesitating and shuddering.

The proposed class-action lawsuit includes all consumers who purchased or leased the following vehicles in California, Florida, Illinois, New York, Oklahoma and Texas:

Car Complaint Article

The GM vehicles are equipped with GM 8L45 or 8L90 automatic transmissions that allegedly hesitate when drivers accelerate or decelerate. Drivers claim the transmissions can shift so hard it feels like being hit by another vehicle. One owner claims the GM transmission shifted from REVERSE to DRIVE so harshly the vehicle almost went through the garage door.

According to the lawsuit, each fix offered by the automaker has allegedly failed to repair the shaking, shuddering and jerking, and the plaintiffs claim both the torque converters and transmissions cause problems with the hydraulic systems and gears.
