Default problems shifting into fourth?

Hi All,

I've had my forester for a little over a month and am pretty happy with it, but for one thing. I'm often having a tough time getting it from third to fourth gear--even if I pull straight down and a little to the right. This rarely happened in my honda 4wd wagon. I'm having it serviced this weekend so I can ask then. Just wondered if anyone had noticed something similar?

Problems getting 4th eh? I've not had that problem on my 2 foresters, reverse yes, and 2nd to 1st yes, but 4th no. 4th isn't a gear that normally has problems as it gets less use and abuse than 2nd or 3rd. Have a look in the drivetrain forum, do a search maybe. If it does it all the time then get the dealer to look at it. If they can't find a problem then at least get it documented in case it goes once the car is out of warranty which will give you some ammo. Sorry I can't be of more help!
