New Beetle won’t go into 2nd

Hi, having trouble with my 2008 VW beetle it don’t want to go into the second gear. Can someone please help me.

So how many miles on this Beetle? What transmission does it have? Pretty important to know if this is an automatic or manual to answer your question, don’t you think? What engine?

Post back with answers to the questions and describe a bit more fully what you experience when trying to engage 2nd gear.
