    note that even though it is in park, when it reads reverse on the dash, the reverse light are lit. however, car is not in reverse gear, car is definitely in park. can this be a neutral safety switch needing to be replaced?

My 2007 VW Jetta, transmission is shifting HARD in Reverse, from 1st to 2nd, and 2nd to 3rd.No symbols or codes have shown up. What should I look for as the reason why ?


It sounds like you may have a bad synchronizer gear. Unless you know how to take down a transmission and replace it I'd visit a good reputable shop to get their opinion and estimate.

Everytime I put my car i park it goes into reverse.


It sounds like you have a damaged shifter cable.It is an adjustable cable but if it is that far out of adjustment then it is probably damaged. Replace it.
