Volkswagen Golf Owners Manual: Introduction

This chapter contains information on the following subjects:

 → Folding the backrests on the rear bench seat forwards and backwards  

 → Luggage compartment cover  

 → Load-through hatch  

 → Fastening rings  

 → Bag hook  

 → Luggage net  

 → Variable luggage compartment floor  

Heavy items must always be stowed securely in the luggage compartment and you must ensure that the rear seat backrests are securely engaged. Always use suitable securing straps with the fastening rings. Never exceed the vehicle's maximum payload. Both the payload and the distribution of the load in the vehicle will have an effect on the driving response and braking distance  .

Additional information and warnings:

WARNING

When the vehicle is not in use or is not being supervised, always lock the doors and tailgate to reduce the risk of severe or fatal injuries.

WARNING

Objects that are not secured, or are secured incorrectly, can cause serious injuries in the event of a sudden driving or braking manoeuvre or accident. This applies particularly if objects are struck by the airbag when activated and then flung through the vehicle interior. Please apply the following rules to reduce the risk of accidents:

WARNING

Transporting heavy objects changes the vehicle's handling and increases the braking distance. Heavy loads that are not properly stowed or secured in the vehicle can lead to a loss of vehicle control and can cause serious injury.

NOTICE

Hard objects on the rear parcel shelf can chafe against the wires of the heating element or aerial in the rear window and cause damage.
