New Tranny Under Warranty!

As some of you may know, I have been having tranny hiccups over the life of my car thus far...and so far I've been able to get them to do work under warranty... At 24,000 miles the bearing in 3rd, 4th, and 5th went out, and they ripped it out and replaced everything rolleyes...and now at 54,000 miles I had a grind going into 5th gear rolleyes...took it to my dealer (one of the rare good ones), and even left my mods on it...(Tater's Hood, AEM CAI, and exhaust - I also have the 11:1 internals in my GT...but they don't know anything about that... cool cool)anyway, they replaced all of 5th gear, and went to drive it...they said it still has problems...and now guess what...without making a big deal out of it at all a toyota rep came out and looked at my car...and approved and ordered a completely new transmission for my car!!!! rofl grin eek eek...I'm also going to do a new clutch right now to save on install expenses later on...what a great day...

Toyota delivers if the dealership does the right thing.

I get my kicks on EC.

I think they did it because if I complain 1 more time about my damn tranny then I can invoke the lemon law rights...but then again it would make me kind of sad because I really really love my celica...I would have to have another solar yellow celica
