You guys assume the whine is the "normal" gear whine. What if it's louder than what you assume and it is actually failing parts?

we HAVE had a few threads where guys had whine and then had transmission failures after everybody insisted they were being whiny new car buyers.... one of them pretty recently on a 2012 car IIRC. Let me find the link, I thought it was pretty comical the amount of people who just KNEW the whine was normal, up until they found an issue in the transmission.

Without hearing it in person nobody can be certain it is 100 percent normal whine and not something that needs to be addressed. The dealer said it isn't normal and they want to look? Let them as long as you aren't all modded up like some of us
