3rd gear real notchy??
I have a 6spd 2011 and my 3rd gear seems really notchy to me. It feels significantly rough going in. Only 3000 miles on the Jeep. I have been driving a manual trans for over half my life, this doesn't feel like it's really grinding but doesn't feel all that smooth in my opinion. It's worse (or more noticeable I should say) at sometimes than others. Anybody else experience this??

low tran oil level
:dance:hi, my last 3 jeeps have all been auto, at present 5 speed auto,
however, i did have a previous jeep that had the same type of problem and
it turned out the fluid level in the trans. was a bit low, but since you have
only 3k miles I would take it back to the dealer it's still under warranty and
i am sure it can be resolved at not cost, also ask the dealer to drive another jeep and see how it feels...all the best, the dealer may have a
additive that they add to the trans..:popcorn::popcorn:

On my 2010 the throw from 2nd to 3rd is difficult from time to time, depending on the rpms, the stick wants to go between 1st and 3rd positions. Not too big a deal IMO.

I don't know if this phenomena i mentioned is anything like the "notchy" feeling you're getting.

no problem with the throw, just not as smooth as the other gears or honestly what I think it should be. Was just wondering.
