    Transmission out at only 650 miles

    I bought a new 2009 XLR-V earlier this month with only 25 miles on it. It did not seem to be able to decide which gear it wanted to be in, especially when not warmed-up yet. I took it to the dealer and was told that it was still in the break-in period and needed up to 1000 miles to learn my driving habits and then it would calm down. At 650 miles the transmission went out and I was stranded 200 miles out-of-town. The transmission is now being replaced. Anybody else had problems with the XLR within the first month of purchase?

    The first XLR-V I owned (2006) was in the shop for 2 months the first 3 months I owned it. It was lemon'ed shortly afterwards. My replacement has be ok, but not perfect. But its life with the XLR

    First I've heard of a transmission problem with a V. Mine is smooth and shifts quicker than the one in my STS. This is the same automatic used in the Corvette and now being used in some of the trucks. Must have been a manufacturing defect.
