I've always liked wagons (likely from all those years riding backwards as a kid). The last wagon I had was at the other end of the spectrum. A 1994 Caprice wagon. 350 LT-1. If you read about them you'll see they are noted for the 4L60e going out of them. The tranny was originally designed for lighter cars.

Mine eventually did. 165,000 miles. I didn't take it to the dealer and spend whatever it was they would have charged. $3000? I bought a used one.
I'll bet those DSG transmissions out of TDI's are going to be cheap too, once these cars start dying like flies when the HPFP goes on them out of warranty and the owner needs to pony up 7 to $8000. That will surely have these cars off the road in 7 or 8 years, particularly the 2009's and 2010's with the 1st two iterations of the HPFP.
