Fifth (5th) gear has started to pop out going down the highway?!!

The consensus has been that this 5th gear problem is caused by people resting their hand on the shifter while cruising at highway speeds. Nissan explains that the cars pop out of gear due to a bent shift fork, usually only caused by this constant pressure on the shifter. Shift forks don't bend from hard shifts, they break. They only bend under constant pressure.

Nissan has changed/redesigned several components of our transmission. One part is the fifth input gear, which if manufactured or designed with improper tolerances could easily cause the problems we have had.
