I find the Subaru shifter a little notchy and requiring a tug to shift very frequently in 1st & 2nd almost all the time. Sometimes it helps to shift to neutral and release the clutch if 1st or reverse is very stubborn.

Yes. In the dead of winter, morning shifting often requires significant patience or double-clutching! Warms up pretty quickly though.
