So I am a relatively new 2018 Golf R owner. Still figuring this stuff out how everything works.
So when I first got the car, I found I could just park, have the engine stop, get out of the car, push lock on the remote and walk away. Then I'd come back and the car would be shut off, without ever having pushed the 'Stop' button.
But today after work I came back to my car and found it had been sitting there in the parking lot idling for 8 hours because it never turned off!
So do you have to explicitly push the Stop button everytime? Does it not auto-detect you left the car by your key being long gone? Did I just get lucky the few times that seemed to happen?
