While driving to lax airport after rounding curve to get off on airport ramp, tranmission failed. Vehicle would not move. Local airport police assisted to get me towed ($45) to police lot. Notified onstar and was towed to closest Chevrolet dealer, albertson Oldsmobile Chevrolet in culver city, California. After three days the dealer had not even looked at the vehicle. I then ha car towed to aamco transmission in orange California where after less than 24 hours I was informed transmission was completely burned up. A pump had failed and the inside of the transmisson assembly was filled with metal shavings. In October of 2003 the transmission had failed and the car had to be towed to gateway Chevrolet in la mirada, California. Car was repaired. I have also had many other problems with this vehicle including brake lights, windshield wipers, heating & air conditioning system.
