1. Agreed.

Also, I'm not sure if it's gear whine or the tires or clutches or just nothing, but does anyone else' car might a noise accelerating in 3rd(I think?)? It's not bad by any means and it's been there since I can remember. Kind of sounds like a space ship taking off. Only thing is that it's not a constant high-pitched whine. More like a womwomwomwomwowm getting higher pitched as it reaches 4th. And it doesn't always do it either.

meh. Ignorance is bliss.
