You should always stop before shifting in to first, but you can shift down into second on the move.

Kevin there's got a point better not to be in first unless your under 10k cuz the other 5 that i have owned all did the same. but after time all of them were able to shift into first from where ever. it comes with clutch wear after time . anything else? i have gutted and given life to many geo metros

Ever since i have owned my 93 geo metro lsi 3cyl for about 5 years i have always had to stop first before shifting into 1st gear. Dont know if this is how they were from the factory but just my observation with mine .

Also i have never had a problem down shifting into 2nd gear though.

you should not have to stop to down shift but you should be going at a lower speed. if you have to stop i would put money on having bad syncros
