    2011 WRX 4TH GEAR GRIND

    Hey guys. Bought the car less then a month ago and love it. Been having a weird issue w/ 4th gear however. It will grind under load (but seems to only do it after it is warmed up). It does it occasionally, but has since been occurring more often. Car has 9,xxx miles. Any ideas?

    Take it to the dealership, and let them diagnose and fix it. I'm not blowing you off, but it's under warranty, so use it.

    Yeah - new car, slight grinding or grabbing is ok if it is getting better. If it is getting worse or persisting go straight to the dealer.
