· Always adapt your speed and driving style to the
visibility, weather, road and traffic conditions.
To familiarize yourself with the parking systems
and their functions, Volkswagen recommends
practicing your driving in a place without too much
traffic or in a car park.
Always supervise the parking maneuver
and the environment of the vehicle.
· Always keep the surroundings of the vehicle under
