I have a smart 451 pure with a stick shift. I find it temperamental when shifting (particularly from 2nd to 3rd) manually with it not responding to shifts and having to repeat the shift 2 or 3 times to get a reaction. Should I have a mechanic look at this. Auto shifting seems to work fine.

There was an issue on the early (2008)with the lubrication inside the shifter shaft, but I would take a look under the console at the shift switches, Sounds like it might be a shift actuator on the trans if it only happens in 2-3 shifts.

Thanks for the suggestion. It is a 2013 Pure. I am having an oil change by a mechanic knowledgeable of smarts, I will suggest he check the shift actuator
