Re: 2006 AWD Pontiac Vibe with Bad Transmission

congrats on selling! Glad you got a 16' renegade. The 16' 9spd transmisison was fixed. 15' and before was bad design and programming. I've been eyeing up that rig since release, but the trailhawk doesn't come in manual.

hard and fast shifting is better on automatic I tuned my escape for performance with SCT and it make the shifts hard and quick, but then you get less slipping. So ya give and take. The older escapes auto trans are known to be weak if not taken care of though...hence why I firmed the shift points up.
