I believe you have every right to give it back if it really bothers you that the trans is getting replaced. If you can live with this, it may be better to negotiate the purchase of the TH because now of the issue and fix. Maybe they can knock another $5k off the sale? Just a suggestion.

curious why you are upset they are swapping the trans? to me it would be better then just swapping the part they think it is. what if that lil part caused other issues and you have to go back again? To me a whole new trans seems better but I dont know and why I ask what makes you so upset?

I understand they are giving me a whole new transmission but I’m upset because I just bought a new car and I don’t think a $100,000 vehicle should need a trans swap within a week. I bought it not a lease so I’m upset because this is mine to keep and That’s not right I should be getting another one but I guess it’s not that easy for them and I just have bad luck .

I bet it’s frustrating. You can ask them to make your payments while they have it.

You would think they would have better quality control since the 8HP95 is used on the Rolls Royce. Changing the transmission would not bother me other than it is a major inconvenience for you as the new owner but certainly appreciate your frustration

They are cars. This happens no matter how expensive/cheap they are.

Yeah, it’s going to happen, just sucks a bunch when ur the guy that it happens to. At least it doesn’t sound like FCA is trying any shenanigans and that’s all you can really ask for.

I think the QC group needs retraining though. Way too many simple issues with these things. My 14 limited was flawless from the factory, these should be too.

Look at it this way, depending on how those solenoids failed, it could have also roasted a few clutches.

Replacing the entire unit is the best case scenario. Sucks for sure, but hopefully they get it done quick

Good luck

I agree with ThawkMike and others... getting a new trans is not a big deal, as long as they get it done _very quickly_. It should be back to you, all buttoned up in no more than a week's time. Removal and reinstall is a one day job. Shipping a brand new trans may take a couple of days.

The transmissions, with everything else left stock, are tough and have a very low failure rate, so your new one should be good and you can enjoy your new vehicle in no time, for a long time.
