Default Do Golf Rear Seats Fold Flat?

Since it is a hatchback do the back seats fold down like a wagon to haul stuff?

Once you pull the headrests and seat bottoms.

__. I hope it's not like the Jetta sedan. Once the rear seats are folded down (headrests and seat bottoms out), there's a "step down" of about 1 1/2 inches from the level of the seats to the level of the trunk floor. I'm 6'1" and I could stretch out and nap in the back of my sedan but I had to pad the floor up first.

my golf has a "step down". Only gets uncomfortable about 1/2 way through the night. I just stick some foam floor mats in the back half to level it off.

__. My neighbor had a refrigerator delivered and then threw the carton out on recycling day. One layer of corrogated cardboard, then a layer of the "styrofoam" packing foam, then another layer of corrogated made a *perfect* "leveler". I trimmed it to fit the profile of the right side of the trunk and duct-taped the edges. With a foam rubber pad on top and a sleeping bag ... ahhhhh.

My 03 2 door does not fold flat. the 1 1/2 inch is there. I keep my clubs and pull cart in the back all the time and it is a little bit of a snit. would be better flat but Ill think I ll keep the car.

My 03 hasn't had any rear seats in there for a couple of years now. Take 'em right out!

__. I guessed that that would be the case. Not a big thing, but it can be a minor PITA at times.
