Question Hard shifting when going into 3rd gear

I don't know if this is common on all 1700s, but I purchased a left over 2011 Nomad, ever since day one, it has been stiff shifting in 3rd gear. I'm curious if this is normal or not?

Sometimes mine does not want to go into third gear, but it's because I'm not paying attention to the RPMs.
