: Shifter problem in 3rd gear

On the way to the dealership to have the "dancing steering wheel" tire issue worked on, the shifter started a bad vibration in 3rd gear. The more load on the motor, the worse it gets! I asked the dealer about it and the only thing I was told is that there was a V on a rack with a tranny out that has the same problem. Has anyone else experienced the same thing?

I now have 211 miles on the clock and the dealer will not look into the problem until I hit 500 miles.

On a good note, the wheel dancing is 95% solved with tire re-balancing!

Non Z06 C5's have this problem regularly. Flat pedal power shifting is a no-no with those trannys :nono:
