6k on my '11. No issues with the clutch other then a little tight when it's cold. But that damn clock drives me nuts. I figure the Jeep just wants to take me back in time because every time I drive it I feel 18 again.

2012 JKU Sahara 6 Speed

I had to take my 2012 Sahara in to the dealer today. It went from notchy shifting to a more serious issue of not being able to get it into 1st at all. I had to start from a stop in 2nd several times. It became incredibly hard to shift into second and third. The last straw was when in reverse the whole vehicle would shake really bad, even when carefully managing the clutch. Obviously, something is either going or is gone in the drive train. It shifted like a dream for the first 3,000 miles. My guess is something in the tranny is shot. Likely the synchros are out, or the clutch is going or something is bent or broken? The transmission mechanic is going to check it out tomorrow. I'll post a follow up in this thread.

09 JK, six speed. I've always driven a manual since I could drive, and couldn't imagine driving anything other than a manual on a regular basis. However it did pop out of second for two days straight. I really had to make sure it was in there and in some cases hold it there.
The gear knob would also shake back and forth rapidly for three seconds when I put it into fourth. This only lasted for a couple of days and then it magically stopped. I do have the problem of when it's cold it shifts really hard, especially into second. After she's warmed up its not so bad though.
I do find there is no consistency between smooth shifting and really knotchy shifting. In all my other previous vehicles it was either smoothing sailing or rough waters. This goes back and forth depending on the day or even in the hour.

Slow is key.

How Hard Has It Been to Fix Your Issues

Is it hard to get your transmission fixed if you get one of the unlucky ones? It seems like I remember people saying that it was hard because they had to recreate the problem in other post.

Is there a way to figure out which dealer has the easiest to deal with service department before buying (Especially North side of Indy). There are some reviews on the net but it seems like a few have spammed them with BS overly amazing stories.

If your having problems with the service department that you bought it from can you easily take it to another service department, and have it fixed under warranty?

Thank You to everyone that has voted and left post.

2010 JKU diesel manual. Around 10,000km it started making a purring sound in time with the engine revs whenever the clutch was engaged. Dealer replaced dual mass flywheel clutch and bearings. Now at 34,000km without any problems. Cross fingers.

okay now that I am really racking up the miles everyday on my JK... I have noticed that 3rd and 4th are a little sensitive. 3rd will grind if you don't give it enough upward force and 4th will pop out if you don't put it in as forcefully. I might just be very used to cars and picky when it comes to gearboxes. Also I don't like the new hydraulic clutch, it is feather lite, no feedback and the friction point is inconsistent. High-start assist is kind-of cool at first but then you notice it will make you stall out at random. The day I decided to turn it off; I was sitting at a stop light on a very very faint incline and as I start to pull away the hill start kicks in and it doesn't "let go" until I have the clutch almost all the way out so and then it just stalled. It was like trying to pull away with the emergency brake on!

Jeep hill start was a little hard to get used to. I always used my other leg to hold the brake....haha.
6 speed Jeeps are a little hard to find, but I found one. -Love it. I guess I am a control freak.
Also, I fixed a manual tranny once upon a time(with bro-in-law Wayne's help). Replaced some gears and bearings - it's a little like a rubik's cube, but you can do it!
Can't do that with an Automatic, Vern!

To follow up on my '12 JKU Sahara 6 speed tranny failure at 3,100 miles. Went to see the dealer today and the Chrysler rep was there (lucky me). The Chrysler rep had just given the dealer approval to drop the tranny and disassimble it to see why it failed. The tranny mechanis said i was correct in saying there was a major problem. He couldn't get into 1st either. The service manager said he was going to recommend installing a new transmission unless it was something minor. It would not shift into 1st and 3,4,5,and 6 were so difficult it wasnt drivable. When in reverse the vehicle shook violently. Minor? I doubt it. My guess is there is design flaw in this application (Wrangler) and owners have a 50/50 probability of experiencing problems, some major, like mine. I'll see where this goes but it's a definite disappointment that the NSG370 is causing problems in such a great vehicle. Popping out of gear, notchy shifting, synchros failing and cold weather sluggishness, to name the main issues are unacceptable in what should be a highly durable drive train, given the application. This kind of stuff can/will ruin the brand image if Chrysler doesn't step up and play offense and not defense. My opinion, of course. More when I know it.

I have a 2013 rubicon with the manual trans. When letting of clutch some times it clunks. It also has a pulsing in clutch pedal and stick when on the gas. Only 700 miles on it. It seems most noticeable in 2nd through 4 gear. I can hear grumbling slight in all gears while accelerating. Norm or not?

Sorry I'm late to the party...

2010 JKU Sport with...minor issues.

- Pops out of 1st when going for 2nd.
- clunk noises when shifting into 2nd an 4th.
- gearshift rattles like crazy when driving along in 5th.
- When going for reverse, I can't get it into gear without letting out the clutch, shifting into 1st, then back to reverse.

I've had quite a few manual transmissions in my time as well so I know this is just a crap transmission. The dealer seems to think its perfect.

To add to the above post. BTW, the dealer has really been great in all of this and I believe they are trying to and will do the right thing. Hopefully, my problem will lead to a diagnosis and then a TSB. Since my JKU is bone stock (at this point) there shouldn't be in complicating factors of lift, etc. to confuse things. I believe there is a TSB out for shift boot repairs that helps with the POG problem. At this point though it's now up to Chrysler. I traded an '11 2 door in on the '12 JKU and the '11 6 speed shifted perfectly for the 2,800 miles I put on it. Thus my 50/50 chance of some types of problems. If I understand it, the '12 6 speed has a different 1st gear. I hope this is just a flaw in my '12 tranny and not a larger issue. Stuff happens...... Still love my JKU..

I have a 12 JKR with about 750 miles right now. It popped out of 4th gear twice, 2 nights in a row, in the same place at around 400 miles or so. I attributed it to me being tired coming out of work and going into 4th going down a hill where I probably shouldn't even be in 4th. THEN I read a thread here for the first time about 6 speed jk's popping out of 4th. It hasn't done it since, and although I keep meaning to pay attention to it when I'm driving, I never remember to. I'm thinking that's good.

I'm starting to think I got really lucky with my 08. Bought her used and have had no problems at all. No popping out of gear, not even hard to shift. She's been great.
