I don't know about reliability but the reviews I have read indicate that the SMT is sloooow. The upshifts make the car waaay slower than a regular 5 speed but the down shifts are good.

A good idea that was not ready for prime time. Did GM make this transmission?

have had one for 2 years and no problems. Shift not as fast as standard clutch, but OK. Downshifts are nice and easy, 0-60 a little slow but very adequate for driving in New Jersey. Vehicle is 100% dealer maintained
