No clutch problems and no weather stripping problems... but have speedo issues... I just shut off the speedo so I wouldn't be annoyed. Waiting for better weather then taking it to dealer for repairs. Also have whining noise from ps pump, wheel hop, gauge cluster electrical issues and shifter rattle.

Thats why I leased (smartbuy). If things go wrong I dont care, take it back.

On another note, PM me with any info you may have as to how far your dad thinks GMAC will go come buyout time in three years if I do care then. thanks.

can you elaborate on "clutch problems" - that's pretty general.

slippage ?
chatter ?
noise at idle ?
car fills with smoke when clutch engaged at 5000 rpm :D just kidding

weather stripping - where ?

Clutch

Yeah, my clutch seems to be a bit different than it has in the past. It engages sooner or lower down now, not sure if it needs adjusting or what. I have smelled burning fluids before also but then it goes away. seems like these GTO's have ghosts or something. My Instrument display went away for 2 days also, and didn't get a chance to bring it to the dealer before it came back...

I don't have any clutch problems in the GTO, but did have them on the 01 WS6. Broke linkage 3 times and had to bring it back to dealer each time.

I don't drive the GTO any differently, so I hope I don't have the same issues.

Good Luck.!

I've got a pretty noticeable smell of clutch coming from my car. This is after normal driving, so I will probably have it checked when my floormat holders come in!

Zero clutch problems. I don't abuse it, but I bang the gears from time to time :D

Regarding instrument display, there's a TSB #5-08-49-003, to reprogram the IPC, so you don't have to "duplicate" problem for dealer, just take it in and give 'em the TSB number if they look at you like a deer staring in the headlights :eek:

10,000 miles so far. No problems yet.

I do have a slight oil leak on the rear of the motor. Looks like possibly the rear main seal. I'll have it looked at soon.

I turned mine on and my analog speedometer jumped right to 40 when I was sitting in the driveway. I shut it off and restarted it, no problems since. I have a power steering whine also and some vibration in the clutch pedal but I m replacing my clutch for an upgraded one anyway right now.
