Default 5th gear pops out and reverse feels like its binding??

Anyone encounter this before? Is it a bad 5th gear synchro? if so does anyone have any idea what the cost of repair is going to be, wish had some more warranty left.

Default Main Shaft Nut

Sounds like another 'Main Shaft Nut' case.
Do a search on the above. You should find a weath of info on it.
I had the same problem. Warrant took care of it.
If you are out of warrant, there is a chance your dealer may do it 'goodwill' because it is a well documented problem.
If not, then you are looking at some fairly serious labor costs. They need to remove the transmission, split the case and replace the nut. The funny part is the nut only costs a couple bucks, labor will be much more than that!
As for the reverse binding... I'm not sure.
