proper oil is a must so he wasn't lying to you but it doesnt have to be a dealership, even dealerships can screw up a simple fluid flush job. find a shop you like and trust, maybe you can even talk to the guy whos actually going to do the job. if it's hard shifting into all gears the clutch is the likely suspect, usually if it's just hard shifting into one or two gears i would suspect worn blocking rings in the sychro's, hows the level in the master? so first thing in the morning before you shift into reverse or first try pumping the crap out of the clutch pedal, give it like 25-50 pumps then immediately try to engage a gear, if it seems to shift better you may have air in the hydraulic system, another possibility which is rare but it happens, is the pilot into the crankshaft or flywheel is siezing and is keeping the input shaft spining even when you depress the clutch pedal, or even check the bracket your clutch pedal is hooked to, sometimes the break and you wont get full travel out of your pedal. or like the last girl that was in here, remove the goddamn floor mat from under the pedal. so you have a lot of possibilities, pick one
Despite the high cost of living, it remains very popular.
