I have a quick question...I have the 6 speed 6 cyl...when I put it into reverse, it kicks out and starts grinding gears nearly everytime. Also, when I shift sometimes i can hear a "clunking" noise upon release of clutch. The Jeep only has 12,000 miles on it so I know it cant be too it just a simple adjustment done by the dealer to fix it? thanks!

not just you

I have an 05 and reverse is sometimes a pain, not catching and grinding. Also 1st and 2nd are sometimes hard to shift into. i've 40k on it.
