This is what I would do.
Go in and be polite, and if the service advisor does not know about the problem, you will have to school him up. (Have the TSB in your back pocket too)
Tell him that you know for a fact that:
1. The first 11 months of GT500 production cars did not get any Teflon lube on the input shaft and clutch hub.
2. Tell him that you know your clutch hub and input shaft have a bunch of surface rust and corrosion on them because the lube never was applied.
3. Tell him that you know that the rusty shaft and clutch hub cause the clutch to not release on time and drag.
4. Tell him that you know that clutch drag causes your syncros to remain loaded with engine torque and that is why your gears grind inbetween shifts.
5. Tell him that you know the transmission input shaft splines have been revised to be a little wider and broached smoother so it will release on time from the clutch hub.
6. Tell him that you know the clutch hub has been revised to be made out of nickle to prevent the clutch hub from rusting.
7. Tell him that you know your flywheel is made out of nodular iron and it does not dissapate the heat very well so it has warped on you and is toasting your clutch and causing your car to have clutch chatter.
8. Tell him that you know the new flywheel is made out of 4100 series steel and is much thicker to take care of the heat dissapation and warpage problem.
If that does not work.....go to a different dealer.
