With that in mind, it might be as simple as a low fluid level, but unless you know what your doing, your best to have a mechanic diagnose it for you.

The shift solenoids go out frequently on these Jettas. A fluid flush may buy it some time but will need to eventually replace the valve body and/or the whole transmission if it goes too far. Valve body (and replace the filter while in there) is the cheaper choice if you do it before the whole transmission degrades too far.
