2011 Manual transmission fix coming?

Sorry if this is a repost, but I just read on TMS forums about a manual transmission fix coming. It reportedly does not involve fluid or additives to the transmission, or even the transmission itself. Oddly enough, it is supposedly the clutch assembly that is causing all of those problems. Even people who got their clutch assemblies replaced could still be affected. This reportedly will involve a whole new and different clutch assembly.

If anyone knows whether or not the fix was ready for the 2012s, let me know.

All I can tell you is that my clutch is fine after 10k miles worth of abuse, I'm sure if a fix is being issued for the 11s then they will be shipping the 12s with it preinstalled. I'm skeptical though a few people have brought up recalls and issues with the 11s and it's been BS so far, I'll keep my eyes peeled.

This is the first I've seen/as far as I know-pertaining to the clutch/transmission in the `11 . The so called 'skip shift' has been a little annoying at times -but I haven't had any problem(s) with my clutch, save for the occasional 'operator error'-of disengaging too early, and "grinding", some ..

Sir, I read what appeared to be an authorative post that indicated the fix would be on any 2012 built on or after March 3rd of this year. I found that nice, as my ordered 2012 has yet to be built. Some auto industry publications have said the reason for the recent shutdowns at Flat Rock (Auto Alliance plant) have been due to parts shortages, including waiting for the new clutch pieces. Production resumed last Friday... hope this helps!
