Hey all. Just bought a used 2011 Mazda 3 sedan for trips to the airport every week. Just a couple things that have come up in the week that I've owned it.

On 1-2 upshifts there's a grind about 50% of the time if I don't let the revs drop below 2k before shifting into 2nd. Generally I'd attribute this to the synchro but the odd thing is that I don't get any grind when downshifting from speed 4-2 or 3-2. Would changing the transmission oil make a difference?

Second issue - when driving tonight my airbag light started blinking in a pattern of 9 times then 1. Did this for about 20 minutes then stopped. I tried pulling the codes with my handheld OBDII reader when I got home but nothing was stored. Should I just wait and see if it manifests again?
