I was told that in our '02 Golf that it was important to lock the car when not in use. I think that was to help with battery drawdown when not in use. Is this still an issue with a 2019 golf? Thanx for your reply.

I don't know about a '19, but apparently still true for a '15.

Page 47 of Owners Manual: "Leaving the vehicle unlocked for longer periods of non-use (for example, in your garage) can cause the vehicle battery to drain so that the engine can no longer be started"
