Grinding? Some people complain about how long you need to crank the Honda engine before starting. There's also a slight delay between going from Reverse to Drive. Just a little more than a GM automatic.

My Honda engine may take a half a second. My SC would start in half that time. Just bump my SC's engine and it will run.

I suggest you replace the transmission fluid ASAP. Several people had a strange surging at steady speed and changing the fluid solved the problem. Make certain you use original Honda Z1 fluid. I would consider changing it yearly if you drive 20-30k a year.
