I doubt there is a problem. Is it like a whining noise, when you shift down to 2nd gear and slowly release the clutch? Ive had that since day 1. I dont know what it is though. I think it sounds kinda cool.

Man, you have NO mileage on your car whatsoever! I've got a MY00 bought in August of 99, and I"ve got 30k on it! =( Oh well, at least I've enjoyed every single kilometer of those 30k!

Anyway, it sounds like your hearing your synchros whine. If your feeling like you have to put a lot of pressure on your shifter when downshifting from 3rd to 2nd when driving at a normal pace, then I'd be concerned -- it shouldn't be too much effort to get it from 3rd to 2nd unless you're up there at like 110km/h!

I know that if you try to downshift from 2nd to 1st when going at like 40km/h, you can hear a whine from the transmission. That I believe are the synchros trying to get the gears to match up thus preventing you from shifting -- safety mechanism.

LaterZ!

u ever tries to use heel and toe when u downshift?

when u downshift tries to give some gas after u shift from 3rd or a higher gear, before u shift to 2nd or a lower gear....u will feel way smoother

and i can feel that when u come to a intersection for a right turn and u are not even complete stop, but u feel after ur turn 2nd gear doesn't have enough power...u do heel toe and u can easily shift from 2nd to 1st w/o any wrinding noise...
