Edit to say that I am fully stock, with the factory short shifter.
That's normal and happens on all generations of Subaru 5MTs. And when I say 'normal' I mean it just happens on most of them...not that it 'should' happen. Unfortunately, many people have had the dealerships check it out through the years, but no resolutions other than put up with it. If you synchronize your shift properly or egg shell it, it rarely, if ever will occur.
