My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there:

Sometimes this issue is caused by damaged transmission shifting linkage or an electrical sensor that helps monitor the the operation of the transmission. Without being there to complete a diagnostic scan or physical inspection; it’s very hard to tell you for certain what’s causing this problem. The best advice we can offer is for you to contact a local mobile mechanic to complete a car is hard to shift inspection; so they can inspect your VW at your home and determine what needs to be repaired.
