Vw quality

I had a lincoln aviator but costs during COVID prompted a change to a less expensive model. This has a nice wide drives seat, accelerates and handles well. Its literally half the price of the aviator but 85% of the luxury. Thats a win for me.

Spacious

This car has amazing room in the backseats. When we went looking for a new vehicle this fit all our needs and room for kiddos and dog! Everyone is comfortable on road trips. Not to mention gets through the snow great and a smooth ride.

Worst vehicle I've ever owned

I purchased this car after owning a Chevy Traverse. I have two kids so this was the perfect family vehicle - or so I thought. First thing I noticed was how jerky it drove. Accelerating from a stop the car shudders as it changes gears. VW told me "its because its an 8 speed transmission" Ohhh so that's why it drives like crap. Good excuse ok. Next the famous German engineering of this car is AWFUL. Why is there a perimeter around the rearview mirror that doesn't dim car headlights. so as you're driving you'll see flickers of bright lights in your eyes when they hit the non-dim perimeter. IDIOTIC. Next - periodically the gas pump will shut off only when achieving 3/4 tank full - convenient!! I also love when I'm driving with no cars near me and my car gives me a heart attack by blaring a BEEP in my face with a giant red warning on the dash that I'm going to get into a collision. Really? With who??? Also had to turn off the lane assist because it would randomly jerk my wheel into oncoming traffic to which VW tested and said it was fine. Next interior climate control - if you unsync the passenger seat from the driver, it turns off the rear heat/ac - its ok there's only kids back there they don't need any climate control ...WHAT? So many things about this car will leave you scratching your head like "Who designed this? Who thought this made any sense whatsoever" I haven't even owned this car a year, haven't even put 7K miles on it and I'm already looking to trade it in. Its been back to the dealer 3 times already, they had to replace the entire steering column, headlights etc... SAVE YOURSELF! You may read this and think to yourself "who is this girl, she probably just doesn't know how to drive the car" - don't think it!! This car is really as ridiculous as this review!! I swear it!!! I'm sorry I left you Chevy, I'll never turn my back on you again!!!

Everything I hoped it would be!

I’ve owned mostly VW’s and was excited to finally get into an Atlas as I was looking for something “roomy” but not huge like a Denali. I am 6’4” and have a large dog and often transport several bikes. The comfort factor is huge with me. I couldn’t be happier with the interior comfort and styling. I like the exterior styling too, but I feel the CrossSport (which wasn’t available when I leased my Atlas) is better. Performance wise, the V6 is adequate but I would appreciate a bit more horsepower. The biggest shortcoming for me is the brakes. They do not live up to the size of the vehicle. I previously owned a Toureg and am constantly comparing the two. The Toureg was much sportier and I do miss that car. But I really have no major complaints with the Atlas. 1 year and 10K miles in, I have had zero issues.

Multiple interior configurations for all

+Easy to configure multiple seating options, allow my dad, aka "Snack Daddy" aka "Driver" aka "#3inmyhouse to covert the third row seat into a "Mommies Girl" seating area....Ta Da! Just for me :D, Please do not tell my dad that I am sending this as I am not allowed to type....you know...being a dog in all....woof. Dora the Explorer likes the step up utility attachment via trailer hookup. Dog...
