Default Re: GM settles suit for faulty Saturn trans - GM states claims are "widely exaggerate

The fact that GM had to delay the VTi launch back in fall '01 due to problems already creeping up with these transaxles leaves GM more on the hook for such failures IMO. There have also been anecdotal statements on some GM related message boards that Hydra-Matic had been testing VTi-type transaxles years before VTi was released and had terrible durability problems with the units then as now.

The last real problem child trannies (late 80's/early 90's Ford AXOD, Chrysler A604) also did not cost nearly $6K parts alone for a replacement unit.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
