I own a 2006 Mazda3 GT with manual tranny. I'm sometimes experiencing jerking problems when shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. The problem doesn't happen all the time. Sometimes it doesn't want to shift from 1st into 2nd gear and I have to force it. I've read that many people have the same probelm. I'm wondering if anyone has found a solution?

I had problem with mine not going into 2nd smoothly. Dealer switched to synth fluid a few weeks ago. Not much of a difference, but with the weather warming, it is becoming less of a problem anyway. Still does it, but is worse when cold.

I think this is sort of common :?

This winter I noticed 1st to 2nd, and 2nd to 3rd was pretty notchy feeling, when compared to a really smooth shift from 3rd to 4th.

It was in the 60's today and the problem is not really noticeable. Maybe I'll have the dealer take it around the block at then next oil change to determine if any kind of adjustments are needed.

I have an '06 3 GT with 34,000 miles.
