trevgo, you really do have a downer on your the 159! It looks the business from your avatar, a huge shame it is treating you as badly as it has. Hope it can be resolved.
But the other side of the story is that some of us actually enjoy and like our 159s. Mine has 79K miles and is rolling along nicely (of course that means it will fall to bits on the way home....).
Sounds like yours was a Friday afternoon car for sure. Massive shame, esp as you clearly wanted it to be great. Have you read any of Hunter's threads? He had a couple of duff 159s before finding a good one, maybe an option? Or have you gone way past this point?!
I stuck a bit of thread lock on my gear lever bolt, seemed to do the trick, solid as a rock now.
Moved over to the dark side
And loving it
