ah hell!!!! Some of you may have read in my other thread that over the weekend I all of the sudden got a tranny rattle in 3rd 4th and 5th gears on my 2003 GT. I've got only 26,000 miles on it, so I took it to the dealer just like everyone said. I just got the phone call from the dealer and he's gonna give it back to me for the weekend, and I'm dropping it off to them on Monday for major surgery...THEY ARE REBUILDING THE ENTIRE TRANSMISSION!!!!! I asked if he could just put a new one in, and he said NO!!!!!! I was like WTF!!!!
He's offered to put a TRD
clutch and Flywheel in, but sadly I don't have the money
...its all under warranty tho
They said that they are even going to have me a loaner lined up, which is nice. Its nice to see a dealer actually keeping up with the warranty on our cars.
Only one question...do I go ahead and shell out the $300 for a new clutch (which will put me in a huge pinch, or just keep my stock one, since its not slipping or having hiccups. I'll probably jsut go ahead and do it (DAMN I wish I had the money for a lightened flywheel right now) because I'm afraid that if I don't it'll make things worse. Also, why are they wanting to re-build it, rather than putting a new one in?????
I've only had problems with re-built tranny's in the past...I'm a little frightened at this, being that they are keeping up with the warranty, but not just saving the time and replacing the whole thing instead of re-building ??
