Transmission failiure

1000 miles and my evo is in the dealer with them reporting they found a ton of metal in the trans oil and casing...my question is what now on a car a week old......what would you want Mitsubishi to do? It has had very light use and I have been babying the thing....obviously a fault from new

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

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

Drives: A little red Neon. I also have a Lancer that presumably still rolls...but doesn't drive.

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.

How did you know something was wrong? Noise?

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.
