Have 2000 ML320 w-175K miles -3rd gear shifts hard

Just purchased and finding 3rd gear runs out longer than shifts quickly. All other gear progressions are fine. Am I looking at possible BIG expense or may complete fluid and filter replacements possible be the remedy? Appreciate any guidance from those "in the know"...!
