I would suggest your not driving it properly.........maybe you should keep it in no gear higher than 3rd to enjoy it more.....and stay off motorways that way you will never need it....or move to Devon/cornwall or Scotland where the roads don't allow 5th gear....I hope this has been some help?
Mine sometimes feels a little "notchy" going into 5th. but I put that down to lack of miles (23500 over 6 1/2 years) and hope it will free up a little when a few more gear changes have been done.....mine still smells new the last owner used it so little
