Hello.

I've noticed a couple of time, coming out of tight long right hander in 4th or 5th gear (like an on-ramp access) at high speed, when I come to engage 6th gear it does not want to fully engage. I have to either go back to 4th gear, or shift down to

We have seen the same issue on Type-R where the shift lever was popping out of the gear...

Am I the only one here with that issue??


tks

I've noticed this too. Sometimes with 5th, but mostly with 6th. It feels like it's hitting stop or detent that you have to push past to reach the gear.

There is a European TSB for the I30N tranny with 5th and 6 th synchros being replaced.
I do not know if we have the same gearbox as the I30N though...

I have noticed shifting into 6th while car isn’t completely warmed up yet gives me the same feeling. As if you have to push past something to fully engage the gear. When the car is warm everything seems normal.

Interesting. That could be it. I'm in my 50's and have driven standards my whole life. This one just doesn't feel right to me.

I’ve noticed it’s a little sticky as well but only when I’m being really gentle and shifting slow. I don’t think it’s a major issue or concern. Just be a little more deliberate would be my advise.

There is indeed a TSB for bad 5th and 6th synchros on the I30N.. But do we share the same tranny???

The shifter has a really 'slotted' feel to me. I think you might possibly not be getting it far enough over. This is my first 6 speed, and I'm not used to pulling over and down in the far H. While being deliberate I've never had a problem Of course I haven't shifted under power climbing into 6th. That would be a speed I won't get close to.

I've got the 5th-6th gear problem with mine. At both oil changes at the dealership, I notified them about the difficulty to shift into 5th or 6th. They blew it off, as no big deal... they like I was shifting wrong, and tried to show me how to properly shift my car. (I've been driving stick shift cars and trucks for over 25 years).

The symptoms are: difficult to shift into 5th or 6th. And 6th gear it doesn't seem to matter if I shift from 4th or 5th. Nor does it matter if I try to shift slowly "nice and easy" or quickly. Double pumping the clutch does work.

I get the slight fight in 6th only when she's cold. After properly warmed up it slots in just fine. I'm sort of used to that. My WRXs 5 speed was a turd when cold and fine when warm, however it was every gear.

I recently started using my N as a full on daily driver so before i was never really in 6th gear much, but now that im on the highway i notice 6th gear sometimes completely does not want to go in. I have to put it back into neutral and try again and then it works. Very strange, noticed it in other gears as well but never as often as 6th.

I been having this experience since I bought the car, if you notice when you shift to 6th, even if it doesn't engage completely when you let the clutch go the stick will move into 6th on its own and engage all the way... I know it's weird. (Excuse my English)

Yep, and there's no grinding noise or nothing, that's the way I've been driving for almost 7 months since I got the car and is not worse or better, it will do it every now and then so I'm used to it already, I got scare at first because I thought I was doing something wrong, but nop, it will do it regardless.

I have had the same problem, although I would call it more of an annoyance than a problem... No clunking or fighting, just wont go.

I have a 5 speed manual as well with the reverse slot on the right below 5th gear. If you try to row the gears at a stop on the car with the clutch down you can go 1st to 2nd to 3rd to 4th to 5th but not to reverse, you have to go into neutral than reverse. This is obviously not the cause of the trouble in the VN but it has the same physical feeling to the operator.

I only ever have this problem on the first 6th gear shift of the day though.

Check the shift linkage and adjust if necessary, it's a known problem. It's not a trans problem.
