Same here that is the sound my car makes.

JTurbo - When you called Mitsubishi, what exactly did you tell them that they got you in contact with a regional service manager? When I called they just said..."make an appointment at the dealership" and ...."we haven't recieved any calls about this particular problem...."

Drives: Too fast for U.S. roads

Thats how it should be........my first cog box was making a different noise than that...if your gearboxes sound like that sound clip...thats normal....don't sweat it I am the guy that started this thread......from that sound clip I would not panic because my second tranny sounds exactly the same...no worries!!

Drives: Typically Brooks, but sometimes Merrells

So how many actual bad trannies have we seen vs. paranoid folks with normal (expected?) gear whine?

VV

P.S. I would have been right with the paranoid folk

here's my only problem with this logic...my noise has been getting progressively louder, and now I'm hearing it on accel as well.

I have to disagree, the recording is very bad and 95% of it is normal sound, but the grinding on throttle off ...I don't think so. I'm not talking about the gear whine, I love that, I'm talking about the heat sheld vibration sound that occurs only when lifting off the throttle.

I'll find out when I get the car back today. If the new tranny does this as well..... I'm leaving it at the dealer and calling a lawyer cause I cannot drive a car that sounds like this everytime I let off the gas. I may be new to the evo, but I'm not new to cars and the noise comming from mine cannot be "normal" if it were why would they be replacing my tranny and why would it get worse evertime I drive it.

Yup, same here.... I hear it during shifts now and though I don't hear it on accell, it is getting worse over time. I think I'm not at the point of failure yet but were I not having the tranny replaced It would be soon.

ANyway, I should get mine back today, I'll pm you with the results.

Hey, Just got my car yesterday, drove off the lot and I started to hear that sound. I was tired and ready to drive home from Baltimore to Virginia so I didn't think about it. However when I got back in my neighborhood I heard that’s sound.

BTW I only have 6 miles when I picked my car up so it is definitely a problem from the start.

I called and, like others who have done the same, they said they were going to contact my dealership and have them call me to schedule an appointment. Like mad VIII, I love decel "whine", but this grinding noise is driving up the F$%&@NG wall. The sad part is that I don't care if something's wrong with the tranny, I just want it taken care of. I understand that the car may, and probably will, have some problems (especially early releases) that doesn't bother me in the slightest. I am in LOVE with my EVO and I wouldn't return it, but I sure as hell don't want to be fed bull$hit by a guy who had neither seen an EVO before I brought mine in, nor had any prior training in diagnosing problems. BTW...my noise happens obviously on decel, and the accel noise I was referring to happens only on LIGHT accel before boost around 3k, but it's identical to the decel noise (not a "bogging" noise).
