Question about 2011 Volkswagen Jetta
Be sure to check your tranny fluid since the repair...a low level will cause this. If over 100,000 miles a tranny fluid and filter change is recommended. Sometimes it can be the simple fix...hope this helps.

if this is an automatic they are known for having many issues. It will require an inspection to diagnose the cause. If its a manual you probably need to change the fluid either way an inspection by a transmission shop should be done

SOURCE: Can't shift when car is cold
I have a1998 VW jetta vr6 glx with the same problem and living in New England it gets really cold, but i did some research and it worked.... With the car in neutral and the E-break engaged, reach down and pull up on the clutch pedal, thus "resetting" the tension in the cable, it will be a bit higher on your foot and the release/engage point will be higher as well but i did this when it was 10*f and i could not get any gear, after pulling up on the clutch, shifts with ease,,,, such a relief
