Anybody have a suggestion for a source for a PDF copy of owner’s manual for a 2021 GTI? VW site only produces error messages and customer care says the problem is with all 2020 and 2021 manuals and they don’t know when it will be fixed. Thx.

Its insane VW cant provide a owners manual for a NEW car lmfao
VW has been very challenged in the software part of the business. Golf Mk8 launch was delayed for months in Europe by software problems and ID.3 and ID.4 have also had software issues. The just-announced alliance with Microsoft for software development for VW cars is a promising development.

Been having this issue since I bought my 2020 last April. Pretty sad.

There’s a hard-copy manual in the car but I’d like to have a PDF on my phone & iPad. The car was just delivered a few hours ago so I’m trying learn all the little hidden features, etc.

I was going to say that you can go here and enter your VIN to see your manual on-line. I just tried it and it rejects my 2021 VIN. 🙄

The physical manual that comes with 2020-2021 isn't exactly a GOLF/GTI manual, Its like a basic VW information book.

It seems that many paragraphs begin with something like "if your car is equipped with the feature", which is SO frustrating. It's as if VW's owner's manuals are written by their Legal Dept. (half the verbiage is warnings and disclaimers) and their Accounting Dept. (cost savings using one generic manual for multiple variants) instead of being written by Engineering and Car Enthusiasts. :confused:

Yeah, looking thru the hardcopy manual I see how generic it is. First thing I’d like to figure out is how to cancel a Nav route once you’ve started. The Nav confuses me because I don’t get what you tap to go back a step. Sometimes you can tap the surrounding screen and that works but sometimes it doesn’t. Once holding my finger on the destination in the list view brought up “delete” but other times that does nothing. I‘ve only had the car for 5 hours so I’m clawing my way up the learning curve. Very different interface than my 2018 Audi.
