    Straight cut gears in 5 speed manual

    I just wanted to put out a question to all the guys who know everything Micra. Does the 5 speed manual transmission have straight cut gears for 1st, 2nd and reverse. My tranny whines in 1st and 2nd. I know they are cheaper to make, somewhat stronger, but make more noise than helical cut gears.

    I remember the transmission making more noise than I was expecting in 1st gear in the base S Micra that I tested.

    But they're not straight cut. They'd be seriously loud if they were.

    Reverse is straight cut. Go 25 km/h in reverse and then compare the noise against going 25 km/h in 1st.
