<FONT face="Comic Sans MS">Speaking from experience, some of the 2000 and 2001 manual tranny cars have a problem with one of the nuts on the gear rail. It becomes loose from a poor 'stamping' that 'locks' the nut on, and your car will pop out of 5th gear. It's a known problem that they have a TSB for, and it's fixed under warranty. I needed a new clutch fork, 5th gear, and 5th gear synchro by the time it was tracked down... other than the O2 sensor problem on the 99's and the weak MAF on the 99 (the 99's MAF is NOT fond of intakes) and my little tranny problem, nothing I've heard of to worry about. Just enjoy the car once you get it... drive it like you hate it- they love it!

Is that a chicken up there? Nope, just the way he's holding the grapefruit!
