:
: 1.) It's difficult to shift to 1st gear sometimes. It doesn't happen all the time.

I've had this problem too. I was sitting at a red light and I was locked out of first. Had to do a 2nd gear launch.


: 2.) Clutch shudders(mild vibrations) when I try to shift fast . Even this doesn't happen all the time.

I've never experienced this.


: 3.) Clutch squealing. Happens all the time.

I can't tell if this is the car or the fact that this car is my first stick (I've had it for about a month), but I've experienced this too. It's seems to have gotten better...


: 4.) Wind noise.

Don't have any wind noise, a few rattles, but no wind noise.


: 5.) Very mild steering vibration at ~70mph. This happens very few times. So, I thought it has to do with the road.

I've never experienced this either.
