2010 VW GTI: Verify the Rear Seats are Locked
June 08, 2010
Our long-term 2010 VW GTI has easy to fold rear seats like most hatchbacks with an easy to access seat release.
But VW adds an easy way to verify that the rear seats are -- to borrow a phrase from your flight attendant -- in an upright and locked position. There's a small tab with a red indicator that protrudes when the seat isn't locked. This could be important if you have children riding in the rear seats. The photo below shows the seat locked and the tab retracted.
Nice. And simple too.
