Do you have a "Trans Failsafe" message on your dash? Weird that you have reverse but no forward gears, usually it is the other way round. Without looking at the car, the fluid level would be the first place I would look at, is it leaking? You need to have the car in the air to check the fluid level, so your going to have to take it to a garage. If the fluid is good, you might be looking at rebuilding the transmission. Have a couple different shops diagnose the issue for you.
