ReviewI saw a lot of comments about the auto tranny's in these reviews and figured I'd try to help out with auto trannies and possible problems. The 4L60E is a great transmission one of the best...HOWEVER, many people don't realize the transmission fluid needs to be completely flushed about every 20k miles...also getting rebuilds from a top notch GM rebuilder that has all the latest fixes is crucial. A mild shift kit will also help increase the logevity. A transmission cooler also helps a LOT. If the fluid flushed (not just changed) every 20k the transmission will go 100+k easily...unless you just beat on it.
Best Features...I too have replaced the same tranny, with a proper rebuild, moderate shift kit, and maintence it lasted long and stood up to 400+rwhp compared with the 240-250rwhp stock numbers...so if done right the auto tranny is fine... things to look for when you buy...
Worst Featurespull out the dipstick that shows the tranny fluid and smell it and look at the color, it should be a red color, and fairly transparent... if its blackened or smells burnt stay away from that car, it means the fluid hasn't been flushed/changed and the clutchpacks could be burned up
