Yup it's freaky as hell because it doesn't "pop" into neutral. Just some in-between in gear and neutral state. It's pretty subtle at first. The first coupla times it happened to me I though I just didn't push it into gear hard enough.mokujin101 said:

Mine would grind too, every time I put it into fourth. It never popped out of gear like the other members of this board so thank god for that.okwiater said:No 4th-gear problem here, but I did have it replaced under warranty at 35k miles for other grinding noises.
It's mostly boost that kills them, but many people with stock still have issues. It was a defect in some trannies on '02 models. If you have an '03, you won't have issues.
