    Went on a trip to cali on the Kia and a week later drove the 10th rolla and noticed when the shifter is on the far left side, when shifting (more noticeable on a stop or when engine is turned off) there is a squeeking sound when when shifting from 1st to 2nd. Feels like something needs lubing or greasing.

    I checked the transmission side of the cables and all seems normal - no tears on the rubber etc. I havent taken the shift boot off yet because I dont know how... LOL.

    Ideas?

    A 10th gen should still be warranty... why not just go to the dealer?

    my 8th gen does the same thing.. first to second squeaks. I need to lube the shifter ball on the top of the transmission but I never get around to doing it. minor annoyance at most.

    "shifter ball" on the tranny? All I saw were 2 levers connected to 2 cables. I'm pretty sure I was looking at the right thing because I remember the AE82 tranny had only 1 lever/cable since it was auto.

    Kinda makes me glad I have an auto sometimes. I hear about problems with the manuals in all cars, but I don't think anyone has complained (from a mechanical standpoint) about an auto.

    A manual tranny is easier to fix than an auto tranny though I think because of how many little parts the auto has...

    true I've never seen the inside of an automatic... I did help change the clutch on an Altima a few years ago, that's actually the car I learned to drive a standard tranny in. It was also the last lol. It was before I got my license, I think I was still 17 at that point. I gotta convince someone to let me drive thier car so I can refresh myself.
