on my way home from work, i was coming up to a stop light like usually downshifting into 3rd around 25-30mph then second gear around 15-20mph
slowing down to a complete stop. light turned green and gradually took off shifting into second around 12mph cruised on up to about 30 and went for third gear and i got nothing. felt like it went in like usual but nothing there went back to second gear and tried agian and same thing...i pulled over and sat there to try and engage 3rd gear. slowly let off the clutch, so i tried 4th gear and same about 20 minutes from home, mostly freeway. so i have to shift from 2nd to 5th to get home. note:1st, 2nd, 5th, reverse all work fine. what happend to 3rd nd 4th

I have 2012 Xb with 9000 miles! I wish I would of bought it auto this 5 speed manual is a real piece of S---t. This is the worst I have driven.... I feel like bowling up the car at times. :mad:
I'm with you man. I regret my decision to get manual everyday. Although I have ~65k on my 2010 and haven't experienced any of the problems these guys are having, it really is a crappy drivetrain.(besides engine)

The combination of long clutch travel, high engagement point, no clutch feel, horrible electronic throttle response and sometimes notchy shifter, it gets very annoying to drive at times. And I don't know about yours, but mine has also developed excessive play/lash in the whole drivetrain. :mad:
