Hey Scotty, what are your thoughts on the 4-speed GM 4L30-E automatic transmission? I'm looking at a car with that and it has 75k miles. It seems to shift good but I always hear you warn people about GM products. How much life do these usually have? Thanks!

Poweglide was the best tranny GM made. Two speeds, simple and lasted forever if you changed the fluid. Had a 72 Buick hand me down that had a Turbo Hydramatic. Pops put three transmissions in that thing before it threw a rod on me at 98K.

No GM as they are great mistakes. Everyone I know with GM products are not happy and won't buy another one. Chevy was a great car if it is a Bel Air made in the early 60s. Not today!

decent tranny, but not being a fan of GM, I personally would not buy the vehicle
