My car has 25000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

It sounds like you may have a major transmission failure. The transmission is slipping if your RPMs are going as high as 5000 before it shifts. The shuddering is another sign of potential transmission failure. I would recommend having your transmission inspected by a qualified mechanic who is proficient in transmission diagnosis. It is very possible that an overhaul or replacement of the transmission will be necessary to resolve this issue.
