you're right. The 4L60E is a pile of junk, in my opinion. My trans man does not think so, but mine was replaced at 35k miles, and it again had a bad valve body at 65k miles. the dealer wanted t replace it again.....see previous post
It never does shift all that well, no matter what we do.
Both my passenger cars have 1/4 million on the trannies, no hickups, just a tiny drip on one of them. Well, i know - apples and oranges......

That's exactly why I wanted the 2500. The '60' is not near as heafty at the '80' tranny.
