Shift Linkage

My shift linkage broke AGAIN

Anything I can do to prevent this from happening?

I got stuck on a hill in 3rd gear in the SNOW angry

I've especially noticed with a 2000 GTS that you have to shift cleanly what I mean is that you can't ride the sides of the shifter and that force=super bad on that transmission. Maybe someone screwed up your tranny after re-insatall I cannot say. Good luck i'm sorry to hear about your mis-fortune especially in the snow.

no, it's got nothing to do with the SS

it has to do with the linkage snapping.

I wish it wouldn't do this, 3rd time in 6 months

the dealer will fix the linkage, but I am going to DEMAND a new tranny.

THREE linkages in NINE months.

nope, car is over one year old.

I don't want to get rid of the car, it's a one of a kind.

I'd like a tranny that doesn't snap linkages

nope.

owned by a japanese guy who works in the finance department, and had very little miles on it, plus I have full service records.

it was suggested that the car could have been bought in Japan, and coverted to RHD, but I don't believe that, since the car has a US VIN

I found it weird that the car came with kazuma exhaust and suspension mods confused
