    I recall having a similar issue with my 3rd gear at times in my 06 wrx. It didnt take a ton of force but it was a tad bit harder then any other shifts once the gearboxed warmed up.

    As far as it coming out..never had that issue.

    No....it did get a bit easier as the car got some miles on it...never really did get 100% easy to get in as compared to the other gears.

    The good news is it made it 12,000 miles without breaking.

    Might want to consider a fluid change to see what that does.
