    Well there's your problem - the clutch got bored and just gave up. Drive harder next time, or at least stay out of the left lane. ;)

    Good luck with your battle and keep us posted. Hopefully either Toyota corporate or one of the dealerships will step up and help you out on this!

    yeah my truck has 40,000 on it. i was hoping the "breaking in" would be done by now. i was thinking about changing the tranny fluid, but i guess that doesn't fix the problem.

    I don't ride the clutch and I'm the only driver.

    Cburt - your issue does not sound like what my truck did - all of a sudden it just didn't want to shift - If I stopped, I had to shut the truck off shift into first then restart with clutch engaged. Could barely shift it up through the gears, had to finesse it in at just the right rpm's. Works great now but then again got brand new stuff in there.

    Mine does not, it shifts awesome! I have driven only manuals in my life, and this one is one of the better ones. I guess I got lucky with my '06 6-speed tranny.

    I believe the Amsoil 75W-90 contains the friction modifier, which is not the best for manual transmissions. It won't hurt the transmission, but may make shifting more difficult.

    I have no complaints shifting. Just the rev up, but I have adjusted to that. No problems going between 1 & 2.

    I am still trying to get this resolved, corporate toyota denied my claim. The owner of the dealer is going to take one last shot at this. Hopefully they will come through.
