Default Notchy/difficult going into 3rd gear

I currently have a 2014 WRX, stock with around 17,000 miles (bought in Sept. and daily driven 80 miles a day) and have been noticing a lot of notchiness going into 3rd recently. It is not on the upshift though, it does it mostly on the downshift from 4th to 3rd (all the other shifts are just your normal wrx 5 speed notchiness).

I have made sure I am downshifting correctly as well, clutch all the way in around 30-35, rev match, clutch out and it still goes into 3rd pretty hard where 5th to 4th is quite smooth. Any idea on what can help this? I was thinking of getting the KB bushings but I was not sure if it is worth it with only 17,000 miles on the car or if it would even help at all? Haven't changed trans oil yet either, maybe that?

Thank you for the help

Trans oil change might help, and is probably worth a try.

Also, do you rest your hand on the shifter while moving up and/or down through the gears? If so, this could be contributing to your issues. These transmissions don't like it as it does funky things with the syncros. May not be your issue but thought I would mention.

Subscribed to see the outcome if you do the trans oil. I have something similar getting into 3rd from 2nd. Its noticeably harder to get into gear than any other, but not all the time. Is yours all of the time?
