Volkswagen Golf Owners Manual: Introduction

This chapter contains information on the following subjects:

 → Warning and indicator lamps  

 → Information on steering 

The power steering is not hydraulic. It is an electromechanical system. The advantage of this steering system is that no hydraulic hoses, hydraulic oil, pumps, filter or other parts are required. The electromechanical system reduces fuel consumption. A hydraulic system requires constant oil pressure in the system, whereas an electromechanical steering system only needs an energy supply while steering.

The power steering provided by the electromechanical steering system automatically adjusts to the vehicle speed, steering wheel torque and steering wheel angle. The electromechanical steering only functions when the engine is running.

In vehicles with Driving Mode Selection, the selected driving mode (Driving Mode Selection) can affect the swivelling motion of the lights   .
