car   Transmission Noise problem 1
Failure Date: 09/29/2017

Transmission completly went out with no warning crossing a busy intersection. No lights came on, no noises, would barely go then jerked and excelleration noise as if I reved engine up but I didn't then pulled into parking spot and it wouldnt go into gear and would not move. When started later that day it ran fine and 2 minutes from home it did the exact same thing but now will not move at all and just whines. I read this is an ongoing issue for this model car and gm will not cover bc warranty rums oit before the 5 year 60,000 miles. Something needs done about this. My car only has 57000 miles on it.
