I've noticed of late I'm having increasing difficulty moving the 6-speed gear stick into the reverse position. Today for example I tried maybe thre times in quick succession to move the stick from neutral to reverse when leaving the office parking lot. I just could not engage reverse at all. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> I found that I had to release the clutch while in neutral one or two time before being able to get into reverse. Getting into reverse has always been a little troublesome but never this bad. Is this a sign of the times? Have others experienced this slow degrade in moving into reverse. My car has a little over 14,000 miles and is close to being 3 years old from new car purchase date.<p>I will also say that shifting into all gear positions except for 5th and 6th is quite notchy.<p>Comments welcomed, and thanks in advance.
