Volkswagen Golf Owners Manual: Introduction

This chapter contains information on the following subjects:

 → Interior mirror  

 → Exterior mirrors  

For safety reasons it is important that the driver positions the exterior and interior mirrors correctly before starting a journey  .

The driver can use the exterior mirrors and the interior mirror to observe rear traffic and then adjust their driving style accordingly. Looking in the exterior mirrors and the interior mirror does not allow the driver to see the entre side and rear area of the vehicle. The area that cannot be seen is known as the blind spot. There may be objects and other road users in the blind spot.

Additional information and warnings:

WARNING

Adjusting the exterior and interior mirrors while driving may cause the driver to become distracted. This can lead to accidents and serious injuries.

WARNING

Automatic anti-dazzle mirrors contain an electrolyte fluid which could leak if the mirror is broken.

NOTICE

If the glass of an automatic anti-dazzle mirror is broken, electrolyte fluid can leak from the mirror. This fluid corrodes plastic surfaces. Remove the fluid as soon as possible, e.g. using a wet sponge.
