Received a letter in the mail a couple days ago stating that chevy was going to fix my tranny coolant lines if they were leaking. This is obviously a common problem and when I called the dealer they said it wasn't a recall of sorts and was just a "kinda bonus program". Basically my vehicle qualified bc is was within 10 years of service and under 150,xxxmi.

Didn't say what years it covered. However I had a time at the dealership. I have a mbrp 4in exhaust which bc it sits closer to the lines coming out of the tranny the freaking licensed/certified diesel mechanic couldn't get the lines out of the transmission and told me he was going to have to drop the whole exhaust. Needless to say I was throughly pissed and told him stop what your doing and I'll be there in 30min. Basically had to show him how to get them out and still wanted to charge me 3 hrs labor. Argued with him for 20 min and listened to bullsh** reasons vomiting from their mouths about my aftermarket exhausT. Long story short an hr my cost for labor

They fixed all transmission coolant lines. But as I stated, if you have an aftermarket exhaust you may have a problem with the dealership complaining.
