Hey i also have a 2010 v6 and yes the gears will be a bit sticky in the begining, that is how my mine were about a year ago when i got my car, espescialy in first and reverse, but they have smoothed out quite a bit since then.
And also i have also have a noise that i hear that comes from the center console behind the radio, it is a ticking noise when i lett off the clucth in first gear and some times in reverse, but this noise dosent happen all of the time, it is just random, but it dosent bother me that much becasue i figured if it was serious it would happen every time and interfer with my driving which it dosent.
What sort of noise dose yours make?
