My IS300 only has 8k miles on it and the clutch as been replaced twice! I picked up the car with 3k miles on it already from the dealer and after driving it for 1k the clutch went out. They fixed it for "free" and then it went out again at 8k miles. WTF!!!

Can any tell me if they've had similar problems with the 5MT? I've been driving standards for 20 yrs and never had this kind of problem. I really like my is but I think this one's a lemon.:pissed:

if you think it's a lemon, try running a carfax report with the vin #

i'm not doubting that you can't drive manual but make sure you fully depress the clutch when shifting

sounds to me like a perfect opportunity for a 6 speed tranny

i hope everything works out for you
