The Duramax has a good ole 6 speed paired to it, completely different tranny and no crazy common issues like the shudder/chuggle, and the new trucks come with the new mobile1 ATF already installedSorry, brand new poster here. I will preface this by saying "I know I am on Coloradofans.com" but I didn't want to get inaccurate information and I trust I will get good information here. Here is my dilemma, I am about to dump a Nissan with transmission issues, I really want to get into a truck... initially I was super pumped about a Tacoma and then started doing research on the ZR2 and I test drove the gasoline version. Aside from the interior I think I am a pretty big fan.
Looking at these forums is this "shutter, or chugg" issue still a problem or is the new transmission fluid looking like a fix? I seriously don't want to get into another vehicle with issues, the resale value on the Tacoma and the "reliability" has me already on the fence.
Just looking for honest opinions about the transmission issue here and general buyers remorse. I really want to give chevy my money.
Edit: Test drove the gasoline version, but definitely gonna find a Duramax, if this makes a difference.
Edit2: And whats up with the seats tearing???!?!
