    2015 Spark LT1
  1. Hi! I recently bought a 2015 Spark LT2 with the CVT... About 3 days in started getting this horrible jerking and slight acceleration accompanied by a sound that is best described as someone doing up a zipper quickly while at highway speeds, here and there while I scoot around town. That was mid October long story short they had it repaired by a local shop, voiding my remaining GM powertrain warranty. Worked well for about a month and now it's doing it again, now more frequently and the "zipper" noise is much longer... This car has 141k/km, runs well, served the trans related recall at GM by the previous owner. Do you guys recognize this at all? I get it's a trans issue that's apparent but why another one in such a short time? Lady at GM said they just started seeing the first ones coming back for servicing and they dont have many issues (read very differently online). Anything I should be looking for? Do I need to tone down my driving? Would think all 84 ponies could be handled.... Dealership is horrible to deal with, cant get our GM shop too touch it, Trans shop that did it before wont return my calls and my province doesnt have a lemon law to use.. Any help would be appreciated I just financed this it's going to be a long few years if this is how she goes. . .
  2. Hi! Just picked up a new 2015 Spark LT1 (I'm pretty sure) from one of those "fix your credit" places where they dont lef you pick a car just hand one over and tell you your payments. So far.... it's been a disappointment. Day 1 CEL, Day 2 Failed CVT. Not all hope is lost though, I do really like a few things about this car. MyLink, high revving motor, tight handling.. there is some potential here. Headlights are uuugly (Newer ones are actually quite nice) and it's kind of sluggish unless your really keeping it wound up. I'll be looking to up the hp a little (hoping to hit around 100 and stop) other then that should last a year or so that I need to use it. Lived on the forums for all of my other vehicles so now registration is just part of the first few steps of getting a new car. All the best.
