gears grind when clutch is depressed gears grind when clutch is depressed

clutch doesn't respond accurately

Soft-loud thump everytime a gear is engaged, clutchs friction zone changes between being half way through the pedal or super close/barely even releasing the pedal, master and slave cylinders had to be changed and lets not forget the slight grinding noise on every shift. Not the worse car, but annoying to deal with

Its a load of garbage that I have a car that I've owned since October of last year, that 3 days after getting it, I was told they hear the noise but don't know what it is. Its a consistent thud and grind in multiple gears. I've taken it in 3 times now for them to keep my car in the service area for 1-2 hours for them to over and over again, tell me they don't know what it is, and that they don't have an service bulletins about it so they aren't able to fix it under their warranty. The Toyota service makes me want to sell the car due to their lack of knowledge or help. Thank you Toyota for an absolutely useless transmission.

The problem I am having is that they clutch is a little high and it struggles in first gear so I have to change out quickly to second and If I move in 2nd the engine struggle louder . I have driven many stick shift vehicles before and know when there is a problem. I took it back to the dealers and asked them to check ,why sometimes whenever I depress the clutch, and it's not that it is depressed half -way ,it is to the max. The gears grind sometimes and they say they did not experience that problem. As I mention before it does not occurs all the time.
