my car runs, but doesnt move forward or backward on 1995 Volkswagen Cabrio

the car was sold as is it drove ok not going over 35 mph. The new owners drove it away going faster and farther and the car broke down on them, saying it was smoking and spewing. They demanded their money back and now my car doesnt move. What happened.

Seems the transmission has failed. Low fluid maybe.
