So when I got my 03 a few months ago, the guy told me the car rumbles when you accelerate quickly, and it does, about 1750 rpm. But if you approach it slowly it's fine. He said a tranny shop couldn't figure it out. I did all my new owner fluid services and maybe it helped, IDK but it's still there. And FWIW all those fluids were fine. The transmission fluid was dirty, but nothing crazy.

This weekend I slapped on my all terrains in preparation for snow and ski season. Then I drive in to work this morning...no grinding. I had the opportunity to accelerate rather quickly up a wet driveway and only then did it grind. Otherwise, I accelerated from flat stops hard without grinding, something that would have certainly caused this noise. I've always noticed it from the front of the car, and MAYBE the driver's wheel. Could be my imagination, but...could it be a bad wheel speed sensor instead? It improved with better traction tires.

thoughts?
