Could be a few things, id take it to the dealer under warranty.

Could be linkage/cable, clutch or even the gbox. I had an oil leak on mine.

Re: sticky box

Phone fiat. It's under warranty. I wouldn't pay for anything like that. a vehicle shouldn't be having a seized gear linkage after 31000 milage or before 3years. Its unreasonable.
