.... tranny #2 died last night. I was in 5th gear, went to downshift into 4th (interstate, was going to pass) and I guess the synchros locked up. Now my car is stuck in 5th gear, and shifter is in the neutral position, and it is waiting at the dealer for a new tranny (which was ordered). Actually, it was ordered yesterday morning for making a "whining" noise which I had them check while I was there getting the fuel line recall done. I have a 6MT 2003 touring model. Original tranny was replaced after 23k miles because of grinding while shifting to 3rd gear. This tranny has only 10k miles on it, was replaced about 1 year ago and is "supposedly" the new BEEFIER tranny.
I love my car, I don't wanna give it up. But ****... I just want a good transmission before my warranty goes away. I am almost at 34k miles now.
