i experience the exact same thing 1-2 times a day...did the 1st-2nd-1st move, that works, but my theory is that the fluid is cold and doesnt want to engage 1st but 2nd is easier because the ratio is different (idk the details about this, just a theory)...i found that the more I drive, the easier it is to get 1st to engage...

on a second note...

I always park my car in 1st gear with the handbrake on...does anyone think that this is linked to the "sticky" 1st gear issue? Im going to start using 3rd from now on and see if this goes away...
