Automatic transmission problem on 2001 Volkswagen Cabrio

When I put the shifter to drive it goes directly on the 3rd gear and stays there eventhough I go to 5 or 50 mph. I can go manually from the 1st gear to the 2nd or from the 2nd to the 3rd .... but when go from the 3rd gear to drive it stays on the 3rd gear. Looking for help! Many thanks
