 Description of the problemMy son was driving his 2007 pontiac g6 gtp on a highway (55 mph speed limit) and suddenly the car downshifted and started shaking. It started to slow down and he finally got to our hometown.... The car downshifted again, and went down to 10 mph before he finally coasted into our driveway. He could not get it up to speed at all and had to go as fast as the transmission would allow him in order to get home and get the car off the road. This problem - a broken 3,5,r clutch wave plate - has been identified via gm service bulletin 09-07-30-012 and i am getting the runaround from gm on them fixing it, all because it's over 100,000 miles. Had this problem occurred on the interstate (which he was on just prior to this incident), he could have been rear-ended or even killed from the sudden drop in speed since the speed limit on the interstate in iowa is 70 mph). This problem is well known, yet gm won't acknowledge it since the cost to repair is phenomenal. Gm needs to be held responsible for this faulty clutch wave plate, which is also a problem in acadias, buick enclaves and saturn outlooks from 2007 - 2009. I'm sure this repair will be very costly, but more importantly - my son could have been killed had he not been where he was when it broke.
