Sometimes on the 2-3 shift, my car will slowly let the clutch out kind of like a CVT or something.
Yup (although, I think I was in drive)... I've only encountered the situation 2 or 3 times so far, but a van in front of me slammed on the brakes and when I went to hit the gas again the RPMs jumped but the car didn't move. Scared the crap out of me...

Yeah, my shifts used to appear pretty solid. Now the RPM needle kind of just floats around doing what it likes. I just ignore it.
