Just got a Taos SE. After each drive, I get a screen that has the rear seats highlited in orange asking me if I forgot something. Is this the same for everyone, or is there possibly something wrong with a seat sensor thinking passengers are in the rear seats? Also, is there any way to track what the latest firmware version is that should be running in my vehicle?

This is for all the vehicles. Nothing wrong with the sensor. I believe it is a preventive/safety measure for parents with babies to make sure they check the back seat.

This is a product of a litigious society. VW is covering their rear behind by including this reminder if the driver leff anything behind. People are so irresponsible nowadays that won't own up to their mistake. They blame the car manufacturer for not reminding them about the kid or pet at the back seat. Or, that they left something valuable or interesting that someone might do a 'smash and grab'.

It may be possible to use VCDS or an OBDEleven or similar tool to disable it.

I no longer get the "back seat" Goodbye message, just a standard "Goodbye"

On the infotainment system, press the MENU soft button, go to SETTINGS > DISPLAY... and uncheck the bottom button.

You'll still get the basic "Goodbye" or possibly the "Don't forget your cell phone" message though

Our car came with the message disabled on the Tiguan. We enabled it.

And the real danger is the start stop system turning your car off completely in park without your consent. Talk about a tragedy and a lawsuit waiting to happen.
