Bear in mind that the parking system may not be able to react if the vehicle approaches too quickly and no warning is issued.
Do not allow the parking system's display to distract you from the traffic around you.
WARNING
Camera lenses enlarge and distort the field of vision. Using the camera image to estimate the distance to people or obstacles may not be precise and can cause
accidents and serious injuries.
Do not rely on the camera system image.
NOTICE
In parking spaces without a curb, park at least 20 inches (50 cm) away from walls and buildings to reduce the risk of vehicle damage.
Sensor and camera boundaries
Various sensors and cameras that detect the vehicle surroundings ultrasonically, by radar waves, and visually are located on and in the vehicle. The various parking
systems use different combinations of sensors. All sensors have technical and physical limits
:
In some situations, some objects may not be detected, e.g. trailer draw bars, narrow poles, fences, posts, and trees, extremely low or high obstacles, or trunk
lids that are opening or already open
The parking system coverage areas have “blind” spots in their range where they cannot detect people and objects.
Dirt, ice, or water on the sensors and cameras may be detected as obstacles or prevent the detection of objects in some cases. In addition to dirt and snow,
soap residue or other coatings can also impair the sensor range page , Exterior care and cleaning.
External noises and certain surfaces on objects and clothing can affect the sensor signals. In some situations, people and objects may not be detected or may
be detected incorrectly.
191
Certain objects, such as small posts or grating, cannot be shown or cannot be adequately shown due to the resolution of the screen and if there is insufficient
lighting.
The cameras only show two-dimensional images on the screen. Due to the lack of depth of field, it may be difficult or impossible to identify protruding objects o
recesses in the road.
Volkswagen recommends practicing with the parking systems in a location or parking space with no traffic in order to become acquainted with the functions.
Requirements
The use of parking systems, e.g. with camera assistance, may not be allowed in some regions according to legal provisions.

Braking assistance systems
Information about braking assistance systems
Braking assistance systems can assist the driver in critical driving and braking situations. The driver is always responsible for safe driving
1. If a braking assistance system is regulating, continue braking with the necessary force. If necessary, steer the vehicle.
WARNING
The intelligent technology in the braking assistance systems cannot overcome the natural laws of physics and it can only operate within the limits of the system.
Driving fast on icy, slippery, or wet roads can lead to loss of vehicle control and serious injuries to the driver and passengers.
Always adapt your speed and driving style to the visibility, weather, road and traffic conditions. Do not take any risks.
Braking assistance systems cannot prevent a collision, for example if you are driving too close to other vehicles.
Always use suitable tires. Driving stability depends on the tires' ability to grip the road.
Always keep the footwell beneath the pedals clear so that the brake pedal is unobstructed and can move freely.
ESC, ABS and ASR only function correctly when all four wheels have the intended tires
If the ABS malfunctions, the ESC, ASR and EDS also fail.
When the ignition is switched on, the condition of the braking functions is automatically checked. The indicator lights will come on briefly and then turn off. If an
indicator light remains on permanently, there is a malfunction. Contact an authorized Volkswagen dealer or authorized Volkswagen Service Facility immediately.
Volkswagen recommends contacting an authorized Volkswagen dealer or authorized Volkswagen Service Facility.
WARNING
The effectiveness of the ESC can be reduced considerably if other components and systems that affect driving dynamics are not maintained correctly or are
malfunctioning. This applies in particular to changes made to the suspension and any non-approved wheel and tire combinations.
Ensure that conversion and modifications to the vehicle are only performed by an authorized Volkswagen dealer or authorized Volkswagen Service
Facility. Volkswagen recommends contacting an authorized Volkswagen dealer or authorized Volkswagen Service Facility.
Always use suitable tires. Driving stability depends on the tires' ability to grip the road.
Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
ESC is regulating the vehicle to reduce the risk of skidding and improve driving stability . The indicator light flashes yellow.
Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR)
ASR is regulating the vehicle to reduce the risk of the wheels spinning. The indicator light flashes yellow.
ASR reduces drive power at wheels that are spinning and adapts the drive power to the road conditions. ASR makes it easier to start, accelerate, and drive up hills
Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)
ABS prevents the wheels from locking during braking so that the vehicle can be steered
Brake Assist System (BAS)
BAS can help to reduce the vehicle braking distance. BAS increases braking power when the driver presses the brake pedal quickly in emergency situations
Electronic Differential Lock (EDL and XDL)
EDS automatically applies the brakes to a wheel that starts spinning and transfers the drive power to the other driving wheels.
XDS is an extension of the electronic differential lock, and improves traction with braking support to help keep the vehicle in its lane.
Multi Collision Brake
The Automatic Post-Collision Braking System automatically brakes the vehicle if the airbag control module has detected a collision in an accident situation.
Requirements for automatic braking:
The driver does not press the accelerator pedal.
Brake booster
The braking support only functions when the engine is running and it enhances the pressure applied to the brake pedal by the driver.
If the braking support is not working or the vehicle is being towed, you will need to press the brake pedal harder because the lack of braking assistance will increase
the braking distance
2 7
WARNING
Driving without the brake booster or when the brake booster’s functionality is limited can increase the braking distance significantly, increasing the risk of
accidents and serious injury.
Never stop the engine or switch the ignition off while the vehicle is moving.
If the braking support is not working or the vehicle is being towed, you will need to press the brake pedal harder because the lack of braking assistance
will increase the braking distance.
Always keep the footwell beneath the pedals clear so that the brake pedal is unobstructed and can move freely.
Switching the braking support system on and off
Driving situations
In order to avoid risks, the brake systems should not be switched off under normal conditions
WARNING
When ESC is switched off, the risk of the vehicle swerving is significantly higher. The vehicle can be difficult for inexperienced drivers to handle at high speeds.
Accidents and serious injuries could result.
Only switch off ESC if you are driving on a closed track and are experienced in sporty driving.
Only switch on ESC Sport if you are driving on a closed track and are experienced in sporty driving.
Never take risks, and note the physical limits of the vehicle.
Switching on and off
1. Open the vehicle settings of the Infotainment system Vehicle settings menu.
2. Open the settings for parking systems.
3. Select the function.
If the driving situation no longer exists, the brake system should be switched on again completely
ASR
It can be helpful to switch off ASR when the vehicle is driven on loose ground or when “rocking” the vehicle out of place because it is stuck
ASR manually switched off. The yellow indicator light turns on.
ESC Sport
The function assists with sporty driving. The ESC intervenes later to stabilize the vehicle, e.g. during fast cornering
ESC Sport is switched on. The yellow indicator light turns on.
ESC Off
The function assists experienced drivers with sporty driving. The ESC is switched off and stabilizing interventions are not performed. Always read the safety
instructions
ESC manually switched off. The yellow indicator light turns on.
Troubleshooting
ABS failure or malfunction
The yellow indicator light turns on.
1. Contact an authorized Volkswagen dealer or authorized Volkswagen Service Facility. Volkswagen recommends contacting an authorized Volkswagen dealer or
authorized Volkswagen Service Facility.
The vehicle can be braked without ABS.
ESC malfunction

There is a fault or malfunction.
1. Switch the ignition off and on.
2. Drive a short distance at a speed of approximately 15 km/h (approx. 9 mph) to 20 km/h (approx. 12 mph).
3. If the
indicator light stays on, contact a suitably qualified professional. Volkswagen recommends contacting an authorized Volkswagen dealer or authorized
2 8
Volkswagen Service Facility.
Noises in the braking assistance systems
When the braking assistance systems are actively regulating, the brake pedal may move or noises may occur.
1. Continue braking with the necessary force and, if necessary, steer the vehicle.
WARNING
If the brake warning light
turns on together with the indicator light
, the regulating function of the ABS could be malfunctioning. This could cause the
rear wheels to lock relatively quickly when braking. Locked rear wheels can lead to loss of vehicle control.
If possible, reduce your speed and drive slowly and carefully to the nearest authorized Volkswagen dealer or authorized Volkswagen Service Facility to
have the brake system checked. Volkswagen recommends contacting an authorized Volkswagen dealer or authorized Volkswagen Service Facility.
Avoid sudden braking or driving maneuvers.
If the ABS indicator light does not turn off, or turns on during the journey, the ABS is not working correctly. The vehicle can only be stopped with the
normal brakes (without ABS). The security provided by the ABS is not available. Visit an authorized Volkswagen dealer or authorized Volkswagen
Service Facility as soon as possible. Volkswagen recommends contacting an authorized Volkswagen dealer or authorized Volkswagen Service Facility.
