usually you will have difficulty shifting into gears. almost like there's no gear to shift into or you hear the crunching metallic noise.

Yup, you will hear a cracking noice when you shift.
That is what happened to me. Warranty covered it.

I would try a shift linkage lube first to rule out that as the possible problem. A can of white Lith grease, spray on each joint of the linkage and you good to go. If that takes care of it you have no worries.

if its your synchro your going to need a new tranny...plus if your dealers a bitch their going to make you change ur tranny oil first...becuase what happens is when you keep shiffting with the fucked up synchro bits and peaces fall off into the tranny oil...once you change that the warranty should cover it...

not sure about older cars, but every manual ive owned (4 of em) i couldnt shift into first from second unless i was at a speed under 10 or so...as to why i dont know...but your problem probably isnt related to this thread
