They need to replace, not fix. It's obvious something went wrong there.

Never heard of that happening. Mitsubishi will need to replace that.

Probably a manufacturing defect. Some people get all the luck, eh? Sorry to hear that.

I thought I was the only one! Dealer said Mitsu has never heard of bad trans in evo. Mine only had 380 miles when it started whining. I hadn't thought that the front diff might share the same oil and shavings. They want to just replace the bearings.

That was me with the diff noise. I get it when downshifting at higher RPMS. A grinding noise almost. But only when I let up off the gas Winding down from say 6k to 3k it makes a loud grinding noise then stops after 3k back down to 0.
