  1. 2014 M7 Shifting Issue

    General Discussion
    I have a 2014 Z51 M7. If I come to a stop in a higher gear, sometimes I'll have a problem getting it back into 1st while stationary. If I can tell it's not engaged I can slip the clutch a bit and usually get it there, otherwise the gears don't mesh. Under normal driving it shifts fine, and if...
  2. Stingray Z51 M7 Transmission Failure - Dealer cannot fix! GM Buyback?

    General Discussion
    After owning my first C7 Stingray since January 2017 and putting 18,900 miles on it, it finally needed new tires. I brought the Z51 Corvette to Stillwater Motors to have new Pilot Sport 4S tires installed, and while in there I noted there was a harsh grinding noise when shifting into 2nd gear...
  3. Cold Weather (No power to transmission)

    General Discussion
    Below 45 degree but more so below and around 30 degrees I back out of my drive way seems fine. Put it in drive and it bogs down as it goes through the first set of gear then it seems sluggish but responds semi-normal until it warms up completely. I had this happen on my 2011 Camaro and Chevy...
  4. Rough switch from V4 back to V8

    General Discussion
    I have 2016 Z51 A8. Seems like a rough shift going from V8 to V4 and back to V8 when cruising over 70 mph. I also see rpms bounce 100-200 rpm and feels like riding on a rough road for a second when trying to stay at constant speed. Is there something wrong with the transmission, or am I...
  5. Video of Clutch Chatter & Whine that deal says is normal

    General Discussion
    Since I got the car (2014 Stingray 1LT Manual), I've had clutch chatter from a dead stop in 1st. It most often occurs on inclines (even slight ones), but also on level ground. More recently a whine has developed. The following video shows the whine (first two clips), the chatter is in the 3rd...
  6. Automatic trans

    General Discussion
    Hi guys. I'm thinking about buying one of these bad boys but I'm not sure if I want to go with manual or automatic. I currently own an Audi TT with s-tronic (dual clutch) paddle shift. I love it but I'm worried about how the Vette will compare since it is a single clutch automatic. Maybe the 7...
