Default difficult to downshift into 2nd

I have an 04 wrx with 4,000 miles on it. Recently, when downshifting into second, i really have to pull it hard to go into gear. I try not to pull but sometimes it just doesn't want to go in and i will be going slow and need to come out of a turn and i need to go into it. Does anyone else have this problem. I double clutch and sometimes it helps but it is really a pain in the ass. Could the weather - 40's and 50's effect it at all. My transmission also shifts horrible. The only thing that makes me dislike my car is the transmission. It totally ruins my driving experience in this car Any thoughts on what it could be, or anyone with the same symptoms?

in my car the stock tranny fluid sucked in the cold and seriously hindered shifts into 1st and 2nd. but it was only for the first mile or 2 of driving. if that is what u are exsperiancing i woudl recomend some good fluid. i will not comment on what fluid is good cause it has been beaten to death and i think every common fluid different ppl have had good and bad results with.
