And now that our newest problem with the grinding of gears in between shifting has arose, it goes back in on June 21st.
Just wanted to let you know mine is also exhibiting the grinding noise. I've posted this in a few other threads. Taking it to the dealer Tuesday. I understand some amount of fluttering or shuddering may be normal given the type of transmission, but I'd be shocked if the noise I hear when it shifts is normal.
