So I did some searching for my specific issue with no luck.

I have a 2012 Cruze 1lt manual. I am covered under warranty yet. ~57000 miles.

This just started last night. I'm noticing a whine/slight grind in the transmission during downshifting into 2nd from 3rd. The noise goes away when the clutch is fully engaged and fully disengaged. It only happens while I'm releasing the clutch into second. Anyone have any ideas what might be causing this?

get it checked if its still under warranty. if im not mistaken, i believe most of the transmission is not servicible, which means there is not much they can do to they transmission internally, if they determine its in the transmission they just replace it.

Yeah I had a whine any gear all speeds and they were gonna pop it open to look and see if they could find out what broke. GM said don't bother, just replace.

Same year with 52k on it. Just for grins stay in second up to about 3k rpms and let off the gas and let it coast. You will probably hear it then too. Mines doing the same thing, doesn't matter if the clutch is released or engaged though, still whines. Definitely taking it to the dealer when I get a chance. Changed the fluid out and no change either.
