Runs and drives fine, but stuck in 4th, that doesn't make much sense. Check the tranny fluid level first, hot idling in park with engine running. If OK, a trip to a transmission shop is warranted. The tiptronic transmission is very robust, so a fluid level check is very important. Good luck!

When was the last time the transmission was serviced? Ive seen these where they where not serviced and required a complete replacement. Im guessing but if its stuck in fourth it could be in limp mode and might be worth scanning for fault codes. Let us know what you find.
