I love the box but think the drivetrain is junk. I have the manual there is a lot of drivetrain whine in 1st and 2nd gear upon acceleration. I first thought it to be the transmission. However if I drive to 45 mph and put the tranny in neutral and coast to a stop it is actaully the differential. Try this if you have a manual. I am going to test drive another if it is inherant with the car I am going to dump it. It is really annoying when you are in traffic speeding up and down. I should have kept my Focus ZX5 with the 2.3l

My xB is my 5th manual transmission car. I've not noticed anything overly unusual like the whine you describe. Might be worth a dealership visit to the service department.

Stick shift vibration?

Still test driving xB. Did not notice the whine, but did notice that the stick vibrated when I accelerated in 4th or 5th gear.
Anyone else get this? I will try another one to see if its a one-off, but thought I would ask
here as well.
Thanks.
