Alright, I need your expertise again. I've asked this question to others who have manual transmissions, but don't know anyone else with a WRX outside of this forum that I can ask.
I let my car warm up in the mornings for a few minutes, but when I go to leave work in the evenings, my car all but refuses to shift back into first. It goes into second fine, then third feels gritty. As the car warms up, the problem seems to go away. My work has a long driveway, and when I leave I usually get into second gear before having to try to get it back into first when I stop at the end of the drive. It's embarrassing sitting there fighting the damn thing to get it into first. I have noticed if I go into 3rd, then back to 1st it will help sometimes. It will keep doing this until I've driven it for about 10 minutes. On another thread I read that you don't need to let the car warm up for 10 minutes like I did with older vehicles. Was that thread wrong? I let it warm up for a couple minutes, but nothing near as long as I have in the past with older vehicles because I've read over and over that I'm just "wasting fuel".
Is this normal in the cold? Should I take it in and have Subaru look at it since it's under warranty? This is my first manual and my first Subaru, so I'm not really sure what to expect.
Thanks for any information and/or advice in advance!
