Though the minimal grinding occurred (wouldn't you know it - normally it was a lot) when I took a drive with the tech, he knew exactly what I was describing (probably from other customers as well) and recommended my clutch assembly be replaced. They replaced it under warranty this week and so far the car drives better than it ever did with quiet smooth shifts. I'll report again after more milage.

I'm very happy with my dealer for supporting me on this with no begging required on my part
Whats your built date?
