The transmission's housing was too thin and cracked, the catalytic converter cracked in half (not rusted) the exhaust assembly cracked in half (not rusted), Chevrolet was contact and said vehicle was out of warranty and it wasn't there problem. We've kept all defective parts and Chevrolet doesn't want to look at them.
