6th Gear Rumbling


Recommended Posts

I have an 02 IS 200 Sport - 39k miles that has developed a "rumbling" in 6th gear at 60mph plus.

It feels a bit like out of balance wheels and is coming from the rear of the car, it can be felt in the cabin.

I don't think it is wheel balancing as it only makes the noise / vibrates in 6th and not in any other gear or when coasting only when accelerating, gets worse around 80mph.

Feels / sounds a bit like the noise you get on certain road surfaces - but does it all of the time.

Anybody got any ideas as the warranty runs out end of March and I want to sort it before then!!

As long as your dealer attempts to fix the problem whilst in warranty all work should still be done under warranty even if by the time the fault is fixed the warranty has expired.

Get it booked in.


Will get it looked at when in for 40k service in a couple of weeks
