Nope, that sounds wrong. Mine has 1150km on it, so about 720 miles. I have the first service booked for tomorrow, and the shifts are still smooth. Yes, it takes a bit of pressure to shift and always has, but the shifts are smooth with no false neutrals.

Sounds to me like you have a problem.

Oh, I'm making sure the first oil change will be to mineral oil (Honda GN4) too, changing to synthetic at the first service is too soon - it needs a bit more time to bed in properly before switching to synth. I'll be changing the oil and filters at about 5000km with another gutful of mineral, then switching to synthetic at the 12000km service.
