Question about 1996 Volkswagen Jetta
Is the car an automatic or manual.
if its manual you may want to go under the hood and check the linkage. if i understand correctly, the car is stuck in second gear.
If you look directly to the right of the motor, and down a bit you wil se a bar that looks somewhat like this () with to prongs coming out of either end. the two prongs go into two holes which have cotter pints there holding them. If the bar () is not through one of the holes it will cause the transmission to stay in a certain gear no matter how you shift.
If the car is automatic, it may be an electrical shifting problem which if the car has a port next to the ash tray, can be checked at a foreign auto shop
