Sounds like the drivewr's seat is adjusting downward. Very hard to see but it does happen on my new 2008 2.0T Passat Wagon, Lux version
On the wagon, you can set the height the gates stops when it opens.
To adjust, open the gate. Once the gate is fully open, manually pull the gate down to the desired height. (or raise it)
Hold the close button until the tail lamps flash. R
Release the button.
Now when you close and reopen the gate, it will stop at the new selected height.
I've also noticed that when initially setting front defroster on, it automatically turns on the a/c. And if you turn off the a/c and let it run, shut the car off, and turn car back on. A/c will remain off until front defrost is turned off and on again.
Here is one I haven't seen in the list yet: Even if you don't have memory seats, your car will still associate different setting in the MFD with each key. For example, I have mine set to German language & temp in Celsius, my fiance when she uses her key gets it back in English and Fahrenheit.
Owning a VW is like having a hot girlfriend that's mentally unstable
My wifes key fob automatically moves seats to her saved memory position when shes unlocks the car with her remote. If I unlock with my fob its goes to my saved position. The manual walks you through the set-up. Love that.
"Say "What" again!
Didn't see this one, it's kinda cool if you have multi drivers.
The seat memory can be programmed to each specific key so that when you unlock the car it adjust to that driver. Refer to owners manual for instructions.
