Last Saturday I noticed that it was occasionally very hard for me to shift gears. For example I would have to pull a lot harder than normal in order to take the car out of gear and it would sometimes grind while entering the next gear all this while having the clutch fully depressed. It gave the impression that the clutch was not fully disengaged. The car never stalled or stuttered while stopped at a light. But as I continued to drive that day it became extremely hard to shift and would not enter some gears at all without A LOT of force accompanied by awful grinding. I ended up using first, third, and fifth to make it home. For some reason it was easier to get into those gears, but nowhere close to being normal. Luckily the dealership is very close to my home. So I didn't drive it at all on Sunday and brought it in to Mazda first thing Monday morning. Mazda called me later to tell me they would be replacing the clutch along with the entire transmission and I would be with out my new MS6 for about 2 weeks :swearin: Not the way I envisioned my first month of ownership when I drove off of the lot, but oh well such is life. I just wanted to share/vent my story.
