I'm concerned about my 3rd gear. Every shift into 3rd at north of ~3k RPM feels terrible (Not exactly every shift. But I can't pinpoint the circumstances surrounding it, so let's assume every shift.). It goes in but it sure isn't very smooth (like pushing a stick through a bucket of marbles). My perception is that it's gradually getting worse, but I can't be certain. I'd like to see if anybody else has similar shifting feel, and if my worry is warranted.
On a related note, over the past ~2.5 years of ownership, I've mis-shifted into 3rd 7ish times (this includes my wife's mis-shifts as well). I assume these incidents are related, but don't have any idea what could be affected within the transmission. Any education on this would be welcomed as well
