    Did it make a loud bang followed by an awful grinding sound?

    sounds like you blew a syncro! Sounds just like what happened to mine only the gear usually goes too.

    if you put a shortshifter on it or a suby tech did it's possible that the plate on the side of the bushing attached to the trans is blocking your entry to second gear.

    Sorry for not getting back to you guys sooner, there was no grinding sound at all just the loud bang. but the weird thing is that on my way home from work (while in lovley jersey traffic) it actually let me pop it into 2nd after about an hour of driving, and now works perfectly... do you think i should still take it to the subaru dealer?

    do you have a short shifter or have you replaced your shifter bushings?
