Welcome tot he forum. it could be an issue with the console or even with the selector on the transmission. The shift into park while moving concerns me. I have seen internal damage to the transmission for this. No matter what, this should be fixed ASAP before you injure yourself, someone else or cause a collision. Seeing as how these parts will be dealer only, i suggest you head there and save yourself some aggravation

Thanks, Shawn. Unfortunately, I brought it into a VW shop and they said they couldn't fix it because they couldn't reproduce the error, which is frustrating. It happens sporadically but pretty consistently, and I figured they'd at least be able to narrow down to a set of likely causes based on the description.
I should clarify - it's not shifting into park while moving forward, only when stopped and trying to shift into Reverse. So it feels less dangerous than annoying, since while stopped I have to pull up the shift cover and depress the release tab.
I've tried to find similar problems discussed on other threads, and in some threads that discuss shifting issues they mention among potential solutions "replacing the wire to the shift solenoid". Again, not the same exact problem but perhaps a similar solution.
Appreciate the help.

But I believe there should be fault in memory. Take it to friend or garage with vcds to confirm if error is there and if yes, push the dealer.
