    Should I be able to turn off engine and exit car left in neutral?

    My 2017 TSI sounds reminder alarms for most everything but I can turn off engine with the 'push button' while car is in any gear or neutral, I can get out of car with key in pocket, and walk away, but no audible alarm or reminder is given. Why? Defect in ignition maybe?

    Did you buy the car new or used? If new it should be covered by VW. If used there is always the possibility the former owner made changes using a VCDS!
