Most miles on 1st tranny

Just curious, since so many people have had there trannies replaced so soon because of problems, I want to see who has gone the longest or most miles on there 1st tranny. Basically the tranny that came with the car. And it cant have had any service whatsoever. Only fluid changes. If you have had a solenoid or anything replaced concerning the tranny, you are out. Ill start

at 108K on my tranny and no problems. Only have changed the fluid every 15k miles.

I thought it was just my car that had problems getting into reverse I'm glad it's not just me. I have about 65k on mine and it seems pretty good every once in awhile it will grind from 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd.

My 05 only has 2500 on it so nothing yet, my 99 had 86 on it when I sold it, that always had a grind going into reverse. I think thats common to these.

i'm on 37 K miles, grinds from 2-3 and 3-4 occasionally but I think that's operator error. Other than that, car's running real well.

Most of the grinds are operator error... You're most likely shifting too fast for the tranny. big heavy flywheels and fast shifting don't really go together. You make the syncros work extra hard at matching the RPMs, which in turn wears them out alot faster.

I have 54k on my transmission right now, but when I first got mine, I noticed the reverse thing as well. I find that if you push the clutch and brake all the way down, it usually will go in smoothly. Not all the time though. If you have a warranty you should be able to get maint. done on it.

If your having a hard time getting into reverse try putting it into first then reverse. My 04 and 98 has the same problem. after trying the 1st to R it seems to be going in ok. its very strange.

yea i got trouble goin into reverse too, mainly when it is cold, thats y i back into parking spots most of the time. I got my car with 47k miles on it and when i got to 53k the tranny had a small noise, they ended up replacing all 6 gears and one of the bearing, kinda makes me wonder how the guy before me drove it. oh and almost forgot, reverse is a srt8 cut gear not a helical cut gear, that may have something to do with it being harder to get into, just a thought

got around 63K and just changed the fluid and on first tranny with no major problems. Occasinally cant go in to reverse, but I stick it in to 4th real quick and that helps. Also, I think this is the first winter its happened, but when its cold or I when I just started driving I hava a hard time shifting 1-2 but its not grinding. Just feels harder to push from 1-2.
