my 03 sport lux has had clutch chatter when i shut the engine off since i got it (used Oct 06) no slipping of the clutch yet. so i deduce that the throwout bearing is in bad shape. because if i hold the clutch pedal in and shut the engine off it does not do it. now it seems like the car is getting harder to get into gear epecially from a dead stop. and its far from smooth shifting when rolling. are these cars known for less than smooth shifting? or am i feeling the effects of the clutch woes? thanks in advance for any advice/help

First check your hydraulic fluid level. It's a very small reservoir in the middle of the drivers side fender. If you've never checked it before, don't be surprised to see no fluid in it. Top it up and see if you still have the problems.
