could be a none issue.. i've read about some owners with similar issues.

Gears go in perfect..
On very rare occasions, if i am not thinking, and MAYBE i have not completely fully put it in second, it will come out. This is very rare.. and if i actually think about it, it will never happen.
Maybe it is "just getting used to it". It's possible that i'm not used to the long distance between 1st/2nd.

I was told that I could try draining the gear box oil and use one with a lower viscosity.

It's pretty easy to just dismiss it, and never have any issues.

I was thinking that it would probably be solved with short shifter.

anyone had a similar issue?

Is it jumping out of second or not ?

A short shifter won't cure it if it is.

Neither will changing the oil.

this could be another one of those selector shaft problems i've seen on here before.

if i think about it when i put it in 2nd, it will never do it.

if i don't think about it, and "maybe" i didn't completely push the clutch-pedal to the floor, it will jump out 1 in 50 times..
to be in second it has to "properly" be in.. This might come across as "learn to drive", but i am pretty sure this is not the case - i've drove a lot of vehicles (all manual).

quite a difficult one to explain without experiencing it.. if you need me to go deeper I will try

could be related.. on very rare cases, putting into 1st it has grind"ed", while moving forward at a very low speed (maybe twice)

thanks for the replies.

Just a suggestion--take it to Mits and have them check and adjust the selector cables , shifter and linkages , I would think that they'll let you know fairly sharpish if there's anything else you should be concerned about.
