I have a 2010 hatch, little over 3,000 miles.
When I am in second, using the engine to brake, when the car gets around 2,000 rpms there is a weird grinding noise. Sounds kind of like clutch chatter, but with the clutch engaged. Neutral, and clutch in are silent. It only does it in second gear around 2,000 rpms and drifting, no gas. 3rd gear does it a little bit, but not nearly as much as second. Maybe I am just paying attention to it more. Is this something that is normal for these cars? I can try to make a video of the noise if it will help explain it better.
It started doing it after about 500 miles.
