I wanted to post my problem in hopes that someone here has had it and knows what to do.

Basically, about half the time I drive my car, and almost always when I have 1-2 passengers, 5th gear will grind when shifting and reverse will also often give me problems when I have a passenger.

I let someone drive it who doesn't drive it every day like me and they said it definitely does not shift like it did when I first got it. It shifts hard and tight. I'm out of warrenty so I can't take it to the dealer.

I've heard transmission fluid, I've heard slave cylinder, I've heard clutch adjustment. Has anyone had a problem similar to this and can you give me some insight and or helpful advice. It's 6 speed by the way.

Well if you can get them to say its the master cylinder, you get a new factory clutch for free assuming you still have a powertrain warrenty. And that right there is the only loophole there is when it comes to a bad clutch. Otherwise order a clutch from Kspec.com or NGM or any of the sponsors.

Oh and welcome to NT.com guys.
