Try pushing it straight forward out of second. Palm, thumb, pistol grip. Whatever works for you. Let it center itself and push straight forward into third. Going second to third you should only push straight forward not to the right.

Doubt that.....I would bet you that this current 6spd trans will be transplanted in future WRX's for years to come, subaru is not going to refresh this.

Well I guess that's one way to further differentiate the WRX from the STI. Sucks for WRX owners.

It's been a known issue for this gen. 15's had the same issue too for many people. 3rd gear hesitates to go in and go back to neutral and 3rd and you're good. Try to tidy up your shift to third because it'll happen often. Not as much, but often... and as many others have said already, bushing and cable on these gens aren't the greatest. Let us know what the dealer tells ya

I too have been having this third gear issue with my '15, but I'm not new to manuals, and it is only during turning to the right, under mild-moderate cornering load, at about 35-45% throttle, and 3500-4000rpms (it's actually always the same corner, and same driving conditions). On this particular corner, I can replicate the issue almost every time. It doesn't grind, and I don't feel like I blew the shift, it just feels like I hit a very tight rubber band wall. Guess it's time for the dealer to go beat the piss out of my car and eventually tell me the problem is me.

You're better off waiting for more comments and opinions from others. This is a big club, wait for others to shed some light on this topic. Dealer will drive your car hard and come back saying "oh we don't see anything out of the ordinary" and you leave. What do you gain? nothing. Other than someone abusing your car.

'18 checking in, 3rd is difficult to get in i feel, it sticks just outside and needs to be reset and push into, much more than the other gears.

Pretty sure they did improve the shifting on the 2018 model refresh. Supposedly more smooth now. Hoping it's even better for 2020 model and dual clutch option for automatic

I have a 2015 WRX that used to have a slight grind from 2nd to 3rd when car was at temperature and shifting at higher RPM. It appeared to be only when it was hot, and the issue was intermittent. I brought it to the dealer, they couldn't replicate it.

A few weeks later, I had warranty work that required changing the transmission fluid, and the issue hasn't been back since. A coworker also recommended changing the transmission fluid prior to the work being done, citing that there may be some break in material floating around the transmission.

Different take:

I got my 16 with 4 miles. Hated the shifting. Almost returned the car.
I turned off Hill Assist and everything seemed ok. Shifting was smoother in all gears.
DOESNT MAKE ANY SENSE but it worked for me. I have heard others claim the same.
I suggest giving it a shot. I YouTubed it for directions.

^this is absolutely a placebo affect man, sorry

there's no way in hell the hill assist had any affect on how the car shifts while driving. That system has no ability in any capacity to affect that.

This idea seems to be thrown around fairly frequently on here, but this is just nonsense.

Hill start assist has nothing to do with shifting. It just applies the brake electronically for 2 seconds, once clutch and brake are depressed and then released. At best, you may notice a slight difference in roll start from a stop if hill assist is disabled.

Likely explanation of the perceived improvement is that by the time you got to figuring out this feature and disabling it, you got used to the carís shifter and were then able to manage the shifts better.

I am guessing this has nothing to do with hill assist, but I am no expert. People say these cars have a weird shifter and they do. You just have to get used to it. I have done almost every shifter upgrade to make the driving experience better. I would recommend all of these and has made me love the car that much more. Shift upgrades include Boomba short throw shifter, Boomba short shift plate, Perrin shifter bushing, Perrin shifter stop, and Raceseng Topology weighted shift knob. However, these were done 7000 miles before the issue with the noise started. It seems like the noise started about 1500 miles ago and has slowly gotten less loud and less often, could this just have been a weird break in? Just wait it out and see what happens? Car currently has right at 10,500 miles on it.

Can you describe the issue more precisely? Is it exactly the same as the OP of this thread reported 4 years ago?

I had the same issue a bit too but it has seem to get better as I have got adjusted to it. They are a little sloppy and I came from shifting tight honda transmissions so its a bit to get used to at least form what I have experienced.

I think you need to slow down release clutch when you 2 to 3, no problem at all
