M6 Questions
 
I have a 2011 V6 with a manual transmission.

I have read about the 1-2 grind, but my issue doesn't really seem like a "grind."

When I shift from 1 into 2 I have to "pull" the shifter into gear. It hangs up and I can't make a smooth shift. I have changed the fluid with Royal Purple and installed a Hurst shifter but the problem remains.

Is this the typical grind or is this something else? The car has 63,000 miles. Would this be covered under the driveline warranty?

Any help would be appreciated. My 2004 Saab shifts more smoothly and it is driving me nuts.

What you described is the 2nd shift grind. Even if it really isn't "grinding", that's the name this issue has been given.

Well that is less than good news... is it repairable? Is it a warranty issue? Am I stuck with it?

Damn you driving that thing while you sleep? That's crazy miles!

I enjoy driving the Camaro so much that if I could drive it in my sleep I would! I miss torque of a V8 but this is still a ton of fun.
