    The shift lever is stiff it's sometimes hard to shift out of park to reverse or drive. I scheduled a fluid change in a couple weeks. I don't drive it much anymore only once or twice a week and then on a long haul 400 miles round trip between home and my parents.
    The car runs fine aside from this and passed inspection in July. It's an 03 civic hybrid. It has a cvt.
    What do you guys think? Need any more info?

    If I don't keep the fluids changed regularly, my lever is always getting stiff.
