I wonder if anyone else has experienced this: on a couple of occasions, shifting up from 3rd to 4th, the tranny acted as if the synchros didn't quite mesh. There was a brief "gear griding" noise (reminiscent of driving a non-synchro 60's era truck), a brief pause and then the shift was completed. I had my service guys run a diagnostic on it, but to no avail. Rather disconcerting, to say the least...

Yep mine's done exactly that at least three times with no fault codes.

Yours slip or feel like slip between gears too?

The slipping thing is correctable by re-setting to the default (ie: disconnect the battery trick). Works like a charm.

Interesting that you've had a similar experience. I wonder if some tranny work (or replacement) is in our future...
