Have a '12 GT Premium Coupe w/the MT82 and absolutely love it. Check my sig and album pics. 15K miles in the first 5 months. No issues to speak of.
Many threads on the transmission but they're not an easy read. Many more of us happy with it than those who're not. I know that if I don't shift as I quickly learned, I can miss and cause issues.
This clutch pedal must be fully depressed and the strong centering spring on this 6 spd xmssn's shifter must me understood. It centers perfectly between the center pair of gates (3 and 4). As these gates are narrow, I've learned I must let the spring take me to 3 and 4 then push forward or pull back with an open grip, and also when shifting into or within either outside pair of gates (1 and 2 or 5 and 6), to properly counter this spring.
I'd be hesitant to buy a used performance car and would want to ensure beforehand it wasn't abused.
'13 Models have just been revealed and you may consider simply ordering one. This year they stopped building 11's in January and began cranking out 12's in March.
You could likely find a new 11 for a great buy, or 12 for a good one.
