That bottom hole has Texas written all over itVery true, the actual transmission itself (i.e. the gears/splines/teeth/bands/etc) are not a defective unit as a whole. But given that the D478 is the only transmission to have said issue it becomes a "manual transmission recall". Considering it can blow out the bell housing its not far fetched to say it could easily shrapnel through the aluminum cab floor. Add the risk of fire and it is now easy to consider a "major" recall lol. I for one do not like the idea of driving a claymore mine with or without the option of spontaneous combustion.
