I have noticed when I go to autostick with my 99, sometimes when I try to shift up or down it gets stuck and is harder to move left and right. I took off the plastic on the top of that section and noticed that the plasctic disks (or whatever they are) that move with the shifter are not sliding over each other smoothly when I go left and right. We tried to add some silicon to the plastic part to lubricate it, but that didn't help much.
I have noticed on the newer Intrepid's, that some have leather around the shifter instead of those plastic sliding things.
What do you think, should I see if the dealer can get me one like that instead?
Hope I didn't confuse you ;)
