Got a new '14 iGT hatch with manual this weekend. I've noticed a pattern where when I start driving my car, the very first time I try shifting into 4th gear, it doesn't slip in cleanly. There's some resistance which requires a little extra force, or maybe waiting a second for the RPMs to drop. Every other time after that, though, it seems to be fine. I'm confident it's not a clutch timing problem, and I always shift into 4th at a relatively consistent RPM/speed.

I test drove a different iGT and an iT, and with both I experienced at least one similar hiccup when trying to put it in gear, but one was with 1st and one was with 3rd. Mine only ever happens with 4th.

Anyone else see this?
