When I had mine I had problems with a grinding, squeaking noise. Had to go back to the dealer 4 or 5 times. They never could solve the problem.

It looks like I'm starting to have issues as well. I sometimes have trouble shifting into 1st, and 3rd gear is very notchy and grinds alot, I sometimes have to almost force it into 3rd and 6th gear.

You obviously don't understand digital. Digital is all ones and zero's. If you have a kink in the cable, because it is made cheaply, then the 0's, being as they are round, can slip around the kink's, but the 1's, having sharp edges, pile up.
No need to look under the hood....

Last problem is when you are stopped and select first, especially after going in reverse, it feels like a spigot bush gripping the input shaft and turning the shaft a little bit. This results in a clunk/lunge forward for about 1 mm, just enough to feel a shudder.

I have the same exact thing as you. With the shift mine has 1st to second problem, sometimes very hard to do.

Thanks for all the information. If every prospective MS6 buyer read this thread, Mazda wouldn't sell a single one. Thanks for narrowing down by choices by eliminating the Speed6 from consideration.

I don't have a lot fo miles on mine yet but I have had zero problems with this tranny - car shifts smooth through all gears. Those that are finding 1st a bit notchy, try to avoid downshifting into that gear - it really isn't necessary. Personally, I don't shift any lower than 3rd before coming to a stop - I use my breaks

No problems yet, I am rather demanding on the vehicle as well.

No issues regarding the transmission here either. Shifts smooth and allows quick shifts.

It's nice to know that a small number of you haven't had any problems, but if you take the time to read through this thread, there are disproportionate number of owners who are having significant problems with their clutch and transmission, including a few who have had transmissions replaced already. I don't consider that to be a "minor problem".

If anyone gets a chance, could you snap a photo of the section of the shift linkage which intersections the metal plate, right prior to the linkage connecting to the transmission.

Here's what I'm looking for. Any assistance would be appreciated. I could probably wait till CP-E has another speed6 back in the shop, but I'm curious now dang nab it.

Here's a circle of what I'm looking for. Basically concerned with the intersection of the shiftlinkage with that metal bracket.
