    Anyone have problems with that 6-speed? Mine won't go in gear, gets stuck in gear, and the clutch seems to have a different release point every shift. I'm fairly disappointed with the car because of it. I read there was a voluntary recall, and the synchros and the input shaft bearing are problematic. I have around 37,000 miles, so I don't want to pull the trans yet until I need a clutch, wanna kill two birds.. but jeeze, what a piece of crap...

    Just turning 26k on my 2010 SRT 6-speed
    (had 8,505 miles on it Last July when I bought it :) )
    and the ONLY problem I have had was that stupid Skip-Shift Solenoid, but once I installed the Eliminator Cable, shifts GREAT now.

    I DID install the Hurst Short throw Shifter & Pistol Grip which is a bit better than the stock one:

    I'd have to check, I may have that on it, I bought mine 18 months ago with 16,300 on it. I see the 1>4 show on the dash every now and then but I never really felt it do anything. I usually just shift 1st to 3rd and skip 2nd cause it seems so close to 1st. Maybe less then 5 times it seemed to automatically go from 1st to 4th.
