2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS equipped with manual gearbox might get an early recall due a major flaw in its Tremec 6060 transmission, reported by many owners. Apparently the hard launches cause the problem mostly when the car’s launch control is turned on, that causes failure of the output shaft. However in some cases the problem occurred even with the LC off.
General Motors gets noticed by the problem as more and more complaints were posted on Camaro5 forums and responsibly, they put the car’s production on hold until they address the issue. And they will plan a recall to fix defected cars.
GM uses this gearbox on many other high performance V8s without a problem. If you are an owner of a manual Camaro SS, it is advised to go easy on it and specifically don’t do burnouts! Automatic Camaro owners can go as hard as they want!
