Volkswagen Golf Owners Manual: Introduction

This chapter contains information on the following subjects:

 → Attaching the mounts and roof carrier 

 → Loading the roof carrier  

The roof of the vehicle has been designed for optimum aerodynamic effect. It is therefore no longer possible to attach conventional roof carrier systems to a rain channel on the roof.

As the rain channels have been integrated into the roof for better aerodynamics, only mounts or roof carriers approved by Volkswagen can be used.

When should the roof carrier be removed?

Additional information and warnings:

WARNING

When transporting heavy or bulky objects in the roof carrier, the vehicle's handling will change due to a shift in the centre of gravity and an increased susceptibility to crosswinds.

NOTICE

Driving with a fitted roof carrier will increase air resistance and thus increase fuel consumption.
