Mainly for Brian, or others in the know, in San Diego.
I confirmed that my 2011 MX5 with 3,800 miles has some tranny noises that might be the pilot or throwout bearings. It's a rattle that occurs between 1,800-2,200 revs in most gears. You can read more about it here:http://forum.miata.net/vb/showthread.php?t=467199
Now it sounds like my transmission will have to be dropped in order to get it fixed. I can take it straight to the dealer I bought the car from (Bob Baker Mazda in Carlsbad) - But I was wondering if there is a particular Mazda warranty shop in San Diego area (or even LA) that you guys can fully recommend.
I consider dropping the tranny quite a bit of a job, so I want to make sure the people doing it are good and will get it right the first time.
By the way... I didn't break the tranny. It's been doing this since day 1. All my cars have been manuals.
