I have a 2001 Monte Carlo SS that I simply couldn't wait to have. At around 25,000 miles I noticed some little things going on with my transmission, such as a whining sound and then a slight slip, as it went into second gear after slowing and then accelerating again. I took it in for a few problems and mentioned to the service manager the transmission irregularities and he told me he didn't find anything wrong. Now at over 50,000 miles and no longer under warranty, the transmission is worse and whines even louder. I was told that GM is aware of some problems with the Monte Carlo, and have notified dealerships about it, but there is no recall or help at this time. I was wondering if anyone else has heard anything about this problem?
