I just bought a 2004 Is300 sportdesign with 32k miles. ive noticed that the transmission whines slightly on the shift between 1st and 2nd (under easy- normal acceleration). also in e-shift from 3rd to 2nd is a rough shift.

Are these normal?

I noticed the same thing with mine. I can sort of describe it as
the wine of jet turbine slowly spooling up.
you can only hear it in 1st to 2nd. maybe i should check my fluid.
currently at 36,xxx miles.

exactly like that...its not loud and barely noticable

my brothers the one that noticed it and he said his does it too, and that mine was just a little louder.
