Just got a 2007 cdti...

The gear ratios are such that after a couple of days I am finding smoother and easier to set off in 2nd gear.

1. Do other users do the same?

2. This doesn't harm the car does it ( he said naiively ?)

My thought would be how long since the gear oil was changed,the book says should last 75k,but others say 30k.first try WD40 on both ends of change cables.spray down side of airbox at 2 large washers,one on each cable.At the other end
prize out the gear shroud and spray cables again.If it is the gear oil use only Honda you need 3 litres you can buy on ebay
for £30 delivered.genuine honda fluid nothing else.Good luck it's cheaper and less trouble than a gearbox.
