    grinding?

    Automatic?? OK, need more info or video about this grinding. It sounds like gears grinding together and failing to engage??

    Well not so much grinding but sort of. Hit 3rd gear and it just struggles to go and gets really really loud before 4th kicks in and calms it down. Have to take a video and post to show.

    Wow....hopefully the previous owner wasn't beating on your Mica before giving it up for sale. Our main reason for buying small and new: My wife and I didn't want to take a chance on inheriting someone else's problems if we bought large and used.
    Nice!
