Question about Cars & Trucks
This could be caused by: If the transmission fluid is cold or has gotten thick with age or the linkage to the transmission has dried out its lubrication, or if the clutch pedal is not being pressed all the way to the floor or a combination of the above.

This is completely normal, when your engine isnt running you can usually get into any gear without even putting the clutch in. My jeep does this and all u usually have to do is give it just a tiny bit of gas while pushing the clutch in and it will slip right into first. Your clutch is fine my car does the exact same thing and the clutch is fairly knew, around 10k miles.

The dealer should know this! The EPC solenoid (controls pressure) hangs up with wear and causes the harsh shifts.

The clutch bearing is supposed to have a groove on the inside where it slides on the shaft That groove is supposed to have a heavy grease applied to it to prevent the bearing running dry on the collar it slides on.Regardless of your driving style, that grease is intended to remain there for the life of the clutch, (generally every clutch I have ever replaced still had some remaining lube there unless the bearing itself failed from a material defect which caused it to overheat and cause that grease to then run out of the retaining groove) I'm not there and can't see the old parts, but in my opinion the first clutch may have failed partially because of your lack of skill in using a stick shift vehicle but the second failure obviously is not your fault if the information you have posted is correct.

that delayed reaction may be the transmission slipping. with those many miles it could be the transmission going bad
