2011 Volkswagen Jetta TDI: Bring Back The Knob

October 04, 2011

I miss the seatback adjuster knob that used to be so common on VWs, as opposed to this lever that's found on the Jetta now.

There's nothing overly wrong with the Jetta's current lever setup. But the knob was superior because it gave you the ability to just barely turn it for the smallest of adjustments, giving that perfect seatback angle every time.
