It is normal, that it is difficult to find 1st gear when your car is moving. I had 3 car and all of them have difficulties to select 1st gear from 2nd gear, it always goes hard. Don't take your car o any garage I would say, that's gearbox and you shouldnt select 1st gear after 2 gear. U can do it starting from 3rd gear and higher to select into lower gear. Better accelerate more and select 2nd gear and go, man!!! That is the answer for the question which gear is used the mostly on cars? Answer second - twice more than 1st gear, because people always using 2nd gear when slightly moving. Another thing is that all the parts are wearing, especially gearbox. If you can get 3rd gear, that's the problem, but select 1st gear from 2nd one is really hard in any car.
