My old 06 TDI has "Always on" cigarette lighter power, and the sales lady at dealership told me it was no longer the case for my new 2010 jetta sw.
And I found it true until one day, when I pulled out the key, and the red power indicator of my cellphone charger is still on!
But I was not able to reproduce it later.

Has anyone here observed the same too?

how long did it stay on? sometimes those LED charger lights stay lit for a little bit.

I have my GPS hardwired to the 12v outlet fuse and it is indeed switched by the key.
