Simple fixes could make it better

2013 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (5.0L 8cyl 6M)
My 2013 GT (6 speed manual) was purchased new. The 2-3 shift under anything over moderate acceleration sucks. I've also had several instances where second has been difficult as well. Rear axle hop noticed in certain situations. I am not hard on this car.
It has also developed the well known engine tick. Will have to visit the dealer. I hope this is not a sign of things to come.
Other than that I like it.
Power, style, ride, handling. Fuel mileage is not bad for such a powerful car.
Hood struts would be nice instead of a prop rod. Spend a few bucks and fix the shifter and rear end hop. It appears to be a very common problem based on all the aftermarket fixes out there. Fix the engine tick.
