Manual Transmission no engage the 5th gear on 2000 Volkswagen GTI

Just Recently I bought this car, the car runs great has power and it works fine but just find out that when I drive this car on the freeway and try to engage the transmission to 5th gear it look that goes but to 3rd gear.
Can some one help on this, there is a adjustment or some thing.

Sounds like you are having a linkage problem. Check the linkage cables and re-adjust.
