Atlas-great family car that is fun to drive.

I love my atlas!! I feel so safe driving it-it’s a very solid car. It is also very comfortable, seating up to 7 adults easily. It gets great gas mileage. It is fun to drive. It is higher up then a car but not super high. I love the touch screen and all the safety devices like lane assist. I love the look of the atlas. The colors are pretty however I would have loved a green. I also love the cruise control and how it will adjust the speed if the car in front of you is going slower. I would love the atlas even more if it had more cup holders. One thing I would change would be to bring the DVD player out of the glove box and put it behind the touch screen. There is no way to get to it if driving.

The first thing I tell people is how roomy it is!

The VW atlas is roomy and comfortable. The third row is for 2 people but can easily fit 3 kids. Even with the third row up there is still room in the back for grocery shopping. It drives well and has been a reliable vehicle. The expanded sunroof is a nice feature as is apple CarPlay, and the heated seats. The features that I miss on the launch edition are the automatic lift gate and automatic seats. The seats are not as much of an issue as I thought but it is difficult to explain how to move the seat to a new passenger in my car. Overall, I am happy with my vehicle and would recommend it to others!

I haven't had it long enough to have any problems. The sel turbo v4 has all of the features you would want and excellent gas mileage because v4 but drives like a v6 with great pick up. Lots of room and has the 3rd row seat. 2nd row captain chairs makes it more comfy for passengers. Has a sunroof that goes all the way to the back seats. 3 zoned air and heat so everyone can control their own air. The seats are leatherette. Much better than leather like I had on my previous car.

Report Receipt Date:
Jun 6, 2018
NHTSA Campaign:
18V380000
Summary:
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswaen) is recalling certain 2018 Volkswagen Atlas vehicles. The owner's manuals provided with the affected vehicles do not inform the customers about the child restraint size limitation/restrictions for the second row center seating position. As a result, the center and adjacent outboard seat belt buckles on the second row can become damaged it a child seat base is installed that is wider than 12.6 inches.
Consequence:
A damaged seat belt buckle can release unexpectedly, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.
Remedy:
Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the center and left outboard seat belt buckles, and replace them if necessary, free of charge. Volkswagen will also provide an owner's manual supplement addressing child safety and child restraints. The recall began June 29, 2018.

Consequence:
The wet air bag control module may result in an unintentional deployment of the air bags, increasing the risk of injury or crash.
Remedy:
Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the air conditioning drain tube, and if it is twisted, the drain tube and air bag control module will be replaced, free of charge. Some of the affected vehicles have had their drain tube previously replaced but did not receive a new air bag control module; the airbag control module will be replaced in these vehicles.

Summary:
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain 2018 Volkswagen Atlas and 2017-2018 Volkswagen Passat vehicles. The brake caliper bracket mounting bolts on these vehicles may not have been tightened sufficiently.

Consequence:
