Currently in a 6MT 2011.5. Couldn't be happier.

Anyways, back on topic. tech drove it, said nothing's wrong. I ask for the shop foreman. Shop foreman drives it with me as a ride along, says nothing's wrong, just slightly stiffer than usual, but every car is different. 1 block away from dealer, he shifts into second. *CRUUUUUUUUUNCH* He goes "well....I now see what you mean by "intermittent". Whole transmission was replaced. You wouldn't believe how much trouble I had getting that thing replaced though.

When I went in though, there was no TSB for this.
yes i believe that was me and yes it was back in 09...

also yes there was no TSB for this at the time, and i believed that there still no TSB on it.
