My 2012 JKUS needs a new tranny!

My first new from the dealer vehicle with only 17,000KM on it is going to have the transmission replaced. I was getting a weird rattle almost shudder with my manual transmission in 3rd & 4th gear around 60km/h. It could be felt in the pedal a little, but only really heard through an open window when driving near a curb. Technician says it's possibly a bad/worn/mis-assembled bearing. So a new transmission is on order.
Great experience for me! Buy used, buy new, it doesn't matter, you can't win. Other than having a warranty.

Yikes! I've got 10,500 Km on mine and it has tranny noise too. I wouldn't describe it as a shudder but definitely a rattle. Did they volunteer the replacement or did you have to push for it?

That might be the noise. Shudder was the tech's word.
No, the tech blew me away by suggesting it be replaced. Said it could have been assembled on the friday of a long weekend and that he would actually check.
