sounds like you should start by dropping the pan and changing the filter, put cheap fluid in it or reuse the old fluid if its not too bad bring it to a shop and have a transmission flush performed with a good flush machine your valve body is sticking and this should clear things up please rate -jeff

seems like your gear linkage is either broken or come off, if the linkage is ok then u are looking at a replacement gearbox

I had the same problem with my 2006 Forenza - the problem was the transmission range sensor. If you look under the hood, on the drivers side, you'll see your trans. cable connected to a round part that also has an electrical cable coming from it. That is it. Part costs $36.07 at oemsuzukiparts.com (search for Neutral safety switch in the mechanical catalog).

Its the electronic shift control located just under the battery ontop the transmission replace or repair will solve the issue
it'll go into drive but once it reaches 1500 rpm it'll drop into neutral as a safety because at this rpm it is being told to shift gear and when it fails to do so it safely goes into neutral
it will go into reverse just fine and park and you can run all the low drive gears until you reach 1500 rpm then it'll cut it off
i pulled mine out re soldered bad components on the board to fix it but im an electronics engineer it may be easier for you to just replace it
