I'm with you man. I regret my decision to get manual everyday. Although I have ~65k on my 2010 and haven't experienced any of the problems these guys are having, it really is a crappy drivetrain.(besides engine)I have 2012 Xb with 9000 miles! I wish I would of bought it auto this 5 speed manual is a real piece of S---t. This is the worst I have driven.... I feel like bowling up the car at times.
The combination of long clutch travel, high engagement point, no clutch feel, horrible electronic throttle response and sometimes notchy shifter, it gets very annoying to drive at times. And I don't know about yours, but mine has also developed excessive play/lash in the whole drivetrain.
