I haven't noticed a lot of vibration, just that godawful "hanging up" it seems to have.phong said:I test drove a Bullit and noticed constant vibration through the shifter knob.
All speeds, all gears, vibration.
Is this just something they all do and one has to live with ?
Yep, that's it. I stay in 1st everywhere I go, but I'm very careful not to rev it past 6,500 rpm.:lol:Palerider said:What is your shifting style?
Do you use the clutch for all shifting, or just starting out in first and stopping?
RCSignals said:some vibration is normal. If you keep you hand on the shifter all the time with pressure on the lever in gear you are going to feel more vibration, and you are also going to cause extra wear in the transmission itself.
What other Standard shift car are you used to that has no vibration at all?
phong said:My 2002 SVT Focus doesn't vibrate through the shift knob. My old Toyota Tercels didn't either. I thought maybe I felt it in the Bullit because of the bare aluminum knob. I could probably live with it, but was just wondering if it was common to all bullits or the one I was driving had something wrong with it. The vibration was constant, in all gears (upt to third at least), in relatively slow city driving. It wasn't just when shifting.
Thanks for the replies !
In that case make sure he records that you reported it while still under warranty.badasbullitt said:........ He told me that mine does not fall into that category at this time.
I told him that mine exhibited the 3rd gear clash in the winter.He then said he would have to witness it himself before anything could be done which I understand........
