I've been shopping for a 5th Gen 2.5GT for a couple of months now and I've only been able to test drive one, but I've read several reviews from magazines and car reviewing websites about the "clunky-ness", "vagueness", and "difficulty finding gears" of the 6MT. The one I drove was fine, though the throws were a tiny bit longer than I expected. It did feel a bit different than my buddy's STI, but I expected that. I'm planning on installing a short-throw shifter anyway, so I wasn't concerned with the length of throw.
This is one of the reviews I read:
Anyway, has anyone heard of these "problems" before, and if so is it a common occurrence? Is it something I should be worried about in my continuing search? Thank you in advance for any advice!
P.S. - I'm very new here, so I apologize if this post is in the wrong spot or format.
