You couldnt notice that you synchros where gone when you were shifting down...I'm saying this because my friends synchros where gone on his Matrix and when he downshifted all you heard was this grinding terrible noise. Should I be worried about my 2003 GT?

okay...just picked up my car at the dealer this morning. The son of a bitch drives better than when I bought it new!!! eek eek eek...the shifting is soo much firmer, and it drives sooo much smoother...I'm Pumped!!!!!...My Intake was put back on flawlessly, and my exhaust seems to be more centered. Also, He said that if I bring my toyota satisfaction survey back to him he'll change my oil for free, and even if I bring my own oil (mobil 1 synthetic). I also had him quote me for a clutch flywheel job, and he told me that for the labor to go in and put in a TRD Japan Clutch and Fidanza Flywheel he would charge me $480 for the Labor...That's it!!!!!! eek eek eek...He even gave me a written quote for it!!!...this is crazy...There is actually a good dealer out there!!!!!

I got the same problem and it take my dealership 3 day to finally know what happen! they won't gave me a rental because if it's not under warranty I have to paid. Take them almost 3 weeks to fix a "3 grind gear" and my interio + exterior are as dirty as it can get thumbsdown thumbsdown thumbsdown

i wish i can have that kind of service over here. dealers here are strange. if i want them to replace something, they would tell me it's fine. there is no need to fix it. weird, i'm trying to give him business, and they don't want it... confused
