The sound is consistent, and is just a whine, not a grinding or anything serious sounding. It took a few hours for every one to tell me it's normal instead of leaving my car at the dealer for the day.

You leave it in 1st gear going downhill? Why not just use the brakes? Must be one mother-steep hill...

Leaving my complex there is a decent grade that curves sharply around the building. There's really only enough room for 1 car around the corner, so I take it very slowly in first gear down the hill. Otherwise, 1st is too jerky to ever do any kind of driving/decelerating with out shaking the change out of my passenger (might not be a bad idea, actually! )
