But all in all, a nice van replacement that comes with AWD and style - at a cost lower than most other similar types of vehicles.

3 Oct

Replaced our minivan which had so much room and versatility and being our first SUV we are very happy with the purchase

22 Aug

It is a perfect solution to someone who needs the size of a minivan

19 May

I hate minivans - I secretly love what they offer

12 Mar

It’s capable as minivan,

15 Jul

The noise comes from the torque converter, is a grinding noise.

18 Dec

Grinding nose when you accelerate at low speeds is when you notice the noise as well as rough low gear shifting.

18 Nov

Very noisy and rattles in multiple places.

12 Jun

2019 VW Atlas I've heard the same Torque Converter noise others are complaining about and the dealership cannot reproduce it and won't spend time to really look into it.

20 Feb

button start due to inconsistent starting 5: torque converter makes terrible loud grinding noise in low gears.

13 Feb

Taking the cat to get the vibration looked at this weekend and get the sun shade repaired.

16 Mar

Next - periodically the gas pump will shut off only when achieving 3/4 tank full - convenient!!

13 Sep

Bad news is the distance on a tank of gas.

11 May

Mostly tiny gripes like the tank is small especially since it gets the worst MPG of it's class, the autostart system doesn't work well and you have to disable it each and everytime you start the vehicle.

1 Mar

The only thing that could be better is the size of the gas tank (only 18.6) and better mileage, averaging 19.2 (but we live at almost 4,000 feet and it's 35 miles to the closest town; the return half of the trip is all uphill).

3 Feb

But if your looking at this car I’ll say this.. not speedy, gas mileage is terrible I get around 270 miles a tank full maybe 290 at times.

1 Dec

On the first tank of gas within days, not weeks of ownership, we experienced a life threatening catastrophic transmission and throttle failure while attempting to cross lanes and merge into 65 MPH traffic.

29 Nov

On the first tank of gas within days, not weeks of ownership, we experienced a life threatening catastrophic transmission and throttle failure while attempting to cross lanes and merge into 65 MPH traffic.

19 May

The only downside is the tank is small I hate filling up every week up can live with it given the other advantages.

30 Mar

I do wish the gas tank was bigger than 15 gallons because it is an SUV,

27 Mar

Range is only 350 miles on a full tank.

29 Jun

Offers eco-mode and turns itself off at stop lights.

16 Mar

Why is there a perimeter around the rearview mirror that doesn't dim car headlights.

15 Mar

To add insult to injury, the day before I took it in for this most recent a/c issue, one of my fog lights went out.

18 Nov

Multiple problems ranging from false warning lights/dings/buzzes to replacement of headlight assy and sway bar.

21 Oct

So I’m sitting at Volkswagen dealership right now waiting for them to add the adapter for trailer lights which will cost me a additional $69 for part.

19 Aug

but yesterday I found both sun visor light assembly clip broke and the cover crack from the heat.

12 Jun

but I'm only 10,000 miles into this car and I'm dreading having to see any service lights on the dash and have to take it to the dealer for repair.

20 Feb

either the warning light is on or I can smell coolant when the car is on.

10 Feb

2 weeks later, I’m back in for low coolant light.

10 Feb

Two weeks later, 2nd light came on for low coolant.

15 Sep

But this is also true of an Econoline delivery van.

24 Feb

We choose the Atlas because the interior of the SUV feels spacious like a minivan (including captains chairs in the second row, and lots of cargo space),

10 Dec

Roomy like a mini van versatility of an SUV.

29 Nov

Also as spacious as a minivan

1 Jul

The styling that looks more like a traditional SUV versus the ?van?

23 Feb

It is much better looking than any minivan.

20 Dec

A suv with the interior room of a mini van.

20 Dec

If you are looking for minivan room, awesome warranty, comfortable seats, technology, and a safe vehicle all around, this is the one.

6 Feb

At this point I’ve had roughly $4,300 billed to the warranty in one year (I also had various squeaks and rattles fixed too), and because of covid, I only put about 15k miles on the car in that year.

Multiple problems ranging from false warning lights/dings/buzzes to replacement of headlight assy and sway bar.

17 Mar

Then less than a week later the same check engine light.

10 Feb

2 weeks later, I’m back in for low coolant light.

5 Feb

Either the warning light is on or I can smell coolant when the car is on.

15 Mar

I took it in for service, it was in the shop for 2 days, was told they couldn't find a leak, so they suspected it was sent from VW like this.

30 Nov

Bad customer service.

30 Jul

The acceleration isn't bad on the V6 model I think after a couple of software updates they did during service.

14 Jun

My car is currently in service as my AC is not working.

16 May

Already took it 3 times to service and they say the same thing: we can't duplicate it.

4 Jan

but my guess that is just poor VW service in my location.

27 Nov

Called vw customer service to complain as my county requires emissions testing.

24 Nov

So far no repair issues so I haven't dealt with Volkswagen service,

6 Nov

Sadly its already getting serviced due to sensor malfunction, wont be getting it back for a week.

5 May

10 Mar

I have been waiting 4 months for a new fitting to turn off my engine light I am now told that it needs a new battery after only 19 months continual problems I would not recommend the car

16 months in the car stalled while in motion, dead battery.

4 Mar

About 7 months in though, the issues started. First, we had an issue with the battery where it completely died on us after idling for (maybe??)

13 Sep

Bad news is the distance on a tank of gas.

2 Jul

I will acknowledge some of the faults you see in reviews are there-the gas tank is too small, power is adequate

11 May

Brake pads and rotors warp due to the car being engineered with braking system not intended to hall the van's size and people capacity.

However, recently the VW dealer put in redesigned/upgraded brake pads and problem solved.

I've had a bad radio, bad brake light switch, malfunctioning seat heaters, bad airbag light, three replaced CV boots, a bad oil cooler, and the check engine light is on so much I'm surprised the bulb hasn't burned out.

14 Nov

Our only complaint is that the check engine light has been on since the purchase (8 months) and two dealerships and three visits have yet to be able to find the issue, it there even is one.

4 Sep

Once the check engine light came on in 2008 I have had nothing

The only real problem I have had is with the brakes, which had to be replaced after the warranty ran out (how do they do that so consistently).

1 Sep

Window regulator broke, over head interior light stay on, sun roof opens for no reason, trunk lock broke, head light washer non opp, cv boots leaked, trans torque converter replaced, brake booster vac line.

8 Jun

The ride is not too noisy at high speeds (70+mph) and handles well on winding country roads.

Add to this $40 wipers, $70 oil changes, and VW dealerships who are terribly nice while they rattle off a long list of questionable repairs.

17 Apr

The wagon is somewhat noisy inside.

18 Jan

and noise at 42,500 I think its done.

27 May

Light came on, and stated it had a vapor leak, the axle and cv joints were shot, front passenger seat replaced, oil and transmission pan replaced, two hoses replaced, very squeaky brakes, back right window didn't work, and two different sets of tires.

3 Apr

The low volume wind noise, even with all windows down and the sunroof open, and the lack of internal wind-buffeting allows me to enjoy near-top-down comfort at any moment.

30 Jun

It was put back together wrong, cracking the windshield with crossed wiring in the dash.

2 Jul

Now, when applying brake, a lot noise from passenger side dash board.

23 Apr

Mine has some really bad rattles that the dealership can't seem to fix and I may have to get an attorney to get VW to do anything about it.

I have had few minor annoyances: sporadic buzzing in dash; creaking suspension noise when exiting the vehicle (I only weigh 180 lbs.

Repairs include 2 water pumps, vacuum system failure.

Oh and the electrical module under the seat was faulty causing the trunk problems.

AT 60.000 miles the water pump failed - Timing Belt needed to be replaced - AC system started leaking and eventually ran out.

4 May

Finally, the water pump failed at 78K mile destroying the timing belt and engine in the process.

29 Dec

Electrical problems, replaced fuel senders x2, fuel tank, engine coils, torque converter, cv joints, numerous other recalls and finally the dreaded cam adjusters failed at 43k.

7 Feb

The driver power window failed immediately and required 3 dealer visits.
