I have been cursed by being the owner of an AUTOMATIC VW, i know i hang my head in shame

anyhow, when the car is cold the damn thing will not switch outta first and into second unless i get it past 4k revs, at which point it kicks into 2nd.....then it'll stay in secondfor quite some times until it switches to 3rd on its own.
if it switches 1-2 and i come to a stop, the car again will stay in first unless its revved past 4k
i sit there every morning warming the car up for a good 4-5 mins, and this still happens sometimes....its quite annoying
any ideas on what i can do....please dont say get a 5spd, bc i am going to and i need to get this thing fixed so i can sell it

max on oxnard huh?
what part of oxnard? its a pretty long street (runs for quite a few miles)
also there a tons of mechanics on that street, so more specific if you could

and also i wanna try and figure out what it can be before i go in somewhere and have them tell me i need a new tranny or some BS like that
