Manual Transmission, not smooth when up-shift from time to time.
Shifter stick noisy at sometimes. Stick was lubed at no cost.
Car pops out of 5th gear. Dealer found service bulletin. Parts replaced under warranty. Safe to hold car in gear by hand, but not practical. Safe to drive until able to repair, no further damage by continued driving. Given rental car.
3rd gear shift lever buzz fixed by TSB. At the same time I also had the dealer install the 2008/2009 5th gear to improve fuel economy and reduce engine noise.
Was experiencing the manual gear shifter rattling when in 3rd gear. This was fixed per a TSB that addressed the issue.
At a traffic light, I noticed that the manual transmission shifter would not go into any gears. The car was towed, under warranty, to the local dealer. They found that the shifter cable was removed. This was reattached and a clip added.
