Volkswagen Golf Owners Manual: Automatic brake intervention

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

The park assist system helps the driver by braking automatically. The automatic braking does not replace the driver's responsibility for the accelerator, brake and clutch  .

A parking manoeuvre will be interrupted if a speed of approximately 7 km/h (4 mph) is exceeded.

Automatic brake intervention to avoid excess speed

An automatic brake intervention may occur to prevent the vehicle from exceeding a speed of approximately 7 km/h (4 mph). The parking manoeuvre can be continued after the automatic brake intervention.

The automatic brake intervention takes place once per parking manoeuvre and no more. A parking manoeuvre will be interrupted if a speed of approximately 7 km/h (4 mph) is exceeded.

Automatic brake intervention to minimise damage

When approaching an obstacle, automatic braking intervention may occur. The Park Assist system may bring the vehicle to a standstill before the obstacle under certain conditions, e.g. weather, ultrasound detection, conditions of the car, load or incline.

The Park Assist system is ended following an automatic brake intervention to minimise damage.

WARNING

Do not let the extra convenience afforded by the Park Assist system tempt you into taking any risks when driving – this can cause accidents. The system is not a substitute for the full concentration of the driver.
