Vehicle bought 8/1, now has 380 mi. [See signature for vehicle description]
Whenever I'm at an idle & depress the clutch, I feel a distinct vibration (a dim thump, thump, thump) in the gearshift knob. If I place the transmission in neutral & release the clutch, the vibration is then almost unnoticeable. There is no vibration when driving (when RPMs are higher).

It's like the clutch plate is unbalanced.

I pointed this out to the dealer after two weeks. He said that he's heard occasional reports of this (more with manual transmissions), & it seems to go away after the break-in interval.

Anyone else experience this?
