Had my 2021 Chiffon Ivory since July 1st .(<1500km; Lockdown 5km limit).
1st gear grind/noise the last 2-3 weeks.
Rang dealer... they want it for the day.
Said it was serious enough for inspection.
Glad this forum exists, great resource.
I'll let everyone know the outcome.
Hoping it is truly a benign issue.

We picked our commercial up in July and I heard the buzz straight off the forecourt, and the more I hear it, the more it sounds like the edge of the tyre just rubbing something, although I know the tyre can’t touch anything. You will hear it nearly every time in first gear. I’m not particularly worried yet as so many are reporting this same noise, It’s strange as the sound is quite a fast moving buzz ..zzzzztt although the vehicle is barely moving If you see what I mean? What part of the vehicle is moving that fast at such a slow speed?
I haven’t heard it on our 2020 sz5 auto
Fingers crossed we find out more soon!

UPDATE
The dealer has confirmed this noise as a transfer chain issue.
Said I was the 4th Jimny back to the dealership.
Awaiting a call to come back and replace the chain....
Will update after install.

Replacement of the transfer case chain, under warranty, has cured the problem on my Jimny.

Mine used to make the noise fairly frequently but doesn't seem to do it any more - 24k miles.

I have also noticed this in my Jimny. Especially in 4H, 1st gear up a hill. It became almost constant.
The dealer couldn't identify the noise. I've got 66,000 km on the engine and it still makes this noise, occasionally though. When I replaced the oil on the transfer case, gearbox and housings it got quiet for about 2,000 km.

But it's back, like a bad rash - the dealer's "shrugging of shoulders" is getting to me. :(
