    Yes it was a flatbed. It was a pain to get the car into netural so they could get it onto the bed.

    I got it fixed at the dealership. I picked it up today and 2 things happened.

    1) As soon as I pulled out of the dealership my dummy brake light kept coming on and off. I took it back turns out to be a burnt out switch that is pressed down when you release your e-brake. The service manger said it will be no charge to fix it

    2) I have to take the car back again because the shifter is way too stiff. My arm is sore from driving it around all day.

    Looks like you need to hit the gym

    jk

    Why was it so stiff? Did they over tighten it or something?

    I got if fixed yesterday. They over tighten a bolt. Except for now it grinds going into first gear. They think the synco are going out but I had them replaced exactly 1 year ago. Story of my life with this car.

    Sychro ain't going out. Freakin' relax, and learn how to drive a stick... I'm starting to wonder how you broke that shifter.

    I'm only repeating what the service manger told me. An as far as me not knowing how to drive stick. I've only owned manual cars. My last car was a new Sentra Spec V witch I drove to almost 100,000 miles until it was totaled in an accident. It was a 6 speed and I never had any issues with it. I've also raced on many road course and have placed in autocross. I'm pretty sure I know how to drive a car. BTW out of the many cars I've owned I have never had clutch or transmission issues.

    Due to the issues I've had with this car I have never race it.

    First gear grinds every time you down shift and it will grind if you don't slowly shift it into first at a complete stop. Also when you put it into first the stick feels like it should go further down.
