The quickest, easiest, cheapest thing to do is put in a used 6 speed.

Do you know what's wrong with 5th gear?

You don't have the lifetime powertrain warranty?

If not, I would take it to a transmission shop and see if it may be an easy fix.

Correct. Original owner only.
I didn't know if you were the original owner or not.
