I am getting close to doing another oil change through. I plan to do mine every 5k miles though the book says every 10k but I just don't trust it. I always changed my oil in my older cars every 3k miles...

I'll see if they do it while I am there but if they don't then I will bring this up and see what they say.

I do sometimes have a little jerking when starting off in first gear sometimes and then when going into second. I found a work around which is don't accelerate hard in first or second or ease off the clutch slowly. I mainly do my accelerating from 3rd gear to 4th then cruise in 5th gear.
I had the same issue with my car. 1st gear would definitely jerk from time to time. It just seemed like it was pretty unrefined for a Fuel Injected car.
