Volkswagen Golf Owners Manual: Introduction

This chapter contains information on the following subjects:

 → Parking using the Park Assist system 

 → Driving out of a parking space with the Park Assist system (only parking spaces parallel to side of road) 

 → Automatic brake intervention 

The Park Assist system helps the driver in finding suitable parking spaces, when parking in suitable parallel or perpendicular parking spaces and when getting out of parallel parking spaces.

The Park Assist system has certain system-related limitations and the driver should be particularly carefully when using the Park Assist system  .

One element of the Park Assist system is the ParkPilot, which is designed to provide assistance when parking.

In vehicles with ParkPilot optical display the scanned area to the front, rear and to the sides of the vehicle will be shown on the screen of the factory-fitted radio or the navigation system. Within the scope permitted by the system, the position of obstacles will be shown in relation to the vehicle.

The Park Assist system cannot be switched on if the factory-fitted towing bracket is electrically connected to the trailer.

Additional information and warnings:

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.

WARNING

When driving into or out of a parking space using the Park Assist system, the steering wheel will automatically make quick turning movements. You could be injured if you attempt to touch the steering wheel spokes.

NOTICE

NOTICE

If an ultrasound sensor fails, the corresponding area of the ultrasound sensor cluster is switched off and cannot be reactivated until the fault has been rectified. Consult a qualified workshop in the event of a system fault. Volkswagen recommends using a Volkswagen dealership for this purpose.

Volkswagen recommends that you practise using the Park Assist system in a traffic-calmed area or car park. This will allow you to familiarise yourself with the system and its functions in a safer environment.
