2010 Volkswagen GTI: The Shift Light

February 02, 2011

The GTI has a shift light that's constantly telling me when to shift. I've been shifting for 25 years. Even if fuel economy were a priority, I don't really need it.

To me, the shift light feels like a modern voice mail system which spends 45 seconds telling me to leave a message after the beep then hang up -- something I've been doing for even longer than driving and am fully capable of doing without instruction.

What about you? Shift light or no?
