Question about 2001 Volkswagen Beetle
On some volkswagen Transmissions you can reset the computers shift plan by doing the following. Starting with car off in park, turn ignition to ON (but do not start) then depress the gas pedal for at least 3 seconds, then shut the car off, start and drive. This resets the computer's shifting plan for some VW's and you can expect some hard shifts after this reset, but it may help with funny shifting. The afore stated speed sensor is also a possible culprit.

Get a mechanics manual for your 2001 vw beetle from Auto Zone or your preferred store. I think it is just the sensor in your transmison. Chech out the speedometer when it happens. If the speedometer stops or shows signs of failure, it is definitly the sensor in you transmision. Also check ALL FLUIDS. If this doesn't work, I know how to reset your computer back to factory. If you have 100 K miles, you may need to reset the computer. To do this is real easy but I need to say it not write it. Hope I could Help...

This page explains how to change the transmission fluid but about half way down the page it tells how to check for the proper amount of fluid:
There isn't a transmission dipstick for this car.
