Driven hard, maybe-but 1st gear on the S-car trannies is supposedly
pretty weak and this is a not-that-unusual problem.  Kinda low
mileage it sounds like, but who knows.

BTW, the car is past the change interval for the t-belt if it is the
original- do it -immediately- or try and sucker the dealer into doing
it.  Its 6-7 years or 60k, and you're over the age part.
