To me this truck is very, very basic. It is lacking what other cars come standard with. Other than that, its a nice truck

Atlas , holding up the world

The Atlas seemed to be a worthy choice in current vehicles. It was roomy and comfortable and easy to drive. The price was competitive. We decided upon a Mazda CX9 because it was a better "deal".

So far it's mostly good. VW service is not.

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. This vehicle also feels weird when accelerating - the engines revs really high before it starts to move from a stop. They also couldn't replicate that and stated the acceleration is normal for these vehicles. They just seemed to hurry up and get me out of there instead of taking the time to diagnose the issue. Other than those glaring issues...this car has a great sound system, touch screen, comfortable seats, spacious, third row and second row fold down so there is lots of room to haul stuff, it can tow 5000lbs so it works great for towing U-Boxes from U-Haul, and it accelerates well on the highway (and sounds like a race car when doing so). Overall this car is amazing when you remove the issues stated in my first paragraph. I would recommend this car 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. Guess I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed and hope that doesn't happen.

I researched and drove nearly every car in the three-row suv category and ended up purchasing the Atlas. After two weeks I can report that we LOVE THIS CAR. It has such a quiet and smooth ride, has SO MUCH ROOM, and is versatile in its configuration—fitting our two kids and two dogs with ease.

I'll never own anything else but an Atlas!

I'm amazed at the fluidity and smoothness of this SUV! It drives like butter and i can go from 0 to 70 in seconds. My husband or myself don't understand the bad reviews saying the engine is sluggish because it's anything but that. I love the technology and especially the cruise feature. It automatically slows your vehicle down when you get to close while in cruise control. Lane assist is awesome too and the room...wow! We've fit three carseats with room for 3 other people not counting the driver. We have the bench row. I've put both back rows down and have actually transported furniture it's so big. The fuel mileage is great too! I've averaged 30mpg on the highway which is more than stated. I love my Atlas!

Wanted a premium level SUV with a second row bench seat ( to accommodate grandchildren ). Had a 17' Ford Explorer LTD and was looking for a Platinum with a 2nd row bench. Both Ford and VW were difficult to find with a second row bench. Found a VW equipped as we wanted. Both have been good vehicles, and I would recommend both. They each have pros and cons and if either manufacturer would listen to their own solicited opinions from the consumer, they could improve the shortcomings of their vehicles. Only acknowledgement from either was thanks for your input. Since customers take their time to reply, why not discuss what would improve their products? There, now I feel better! VW acceleration is good. Reliability is good so far ( 15,000 miles ). Ford offers smoother ride, but less interior room. Happy with both vehicles.

We looked at quite a few domestic and import 7 passenger vehicles before deciding on the VW Atlas SE 4Motion w/technology. I guess what swayed us was what you got for the money. Not only is the Atlas one of the few that isn't all rounded off everywhere and has a rugged appearance, but it's interior is laid out nice even slightly sparse which isn't a bad thing. But the interior is spacious, lots of storage, and did I mention17 cup holders, the seats are comfortable and supportive. Ours has the optional 2nd row captains seats which is nice and they move forward and back to give ample room for passengers. The third row seating is comfortable even for a 6ft plus person without feeling your knees are at your chin as with some vehicles. The electronics are good, both in sound and function. Ours has the optional CD player in the glovebox and has the SD card reader to give you the ability to see pictures on the dash screen as well as load lots of music. The Apple Car Play and Android Play work well. VW claims on the V6 23mpg but on my trip last week I got 27mpg going down and 26.2mpg coming back with a loaded interior and my reese receiver rack on back loaded. It handles well and is not the most powerful engine but I'm ok with it's power. I didn't buy it to race anyone. Fit and finish is nice. And it's built in Chattanooga TN (German engine and Japanese Transmission). Hopefully it will serve us well, as we loved our Passat we had and are aware of the quirkiness of VW electronics which all companies seem to have. We highly recommend the Atlas.
