My understanding is this is related to the strut boots, nothing else w/r to the strut itself.
Hey, don't fret. What you're seeing right now are people who have complaints. The happy folks won't feel the need to find a forum to gripe. Only the car nuts will be on a forum just to talk shop... like me, lol.never trade in your Touareg, my 2012 is still running like a champ, i'm here to look for replace my wife's bimmer to a 7 seater Atlas, but so far not so impressed.
That's a ridiculous amount of times for it to be in for service considering the low mileage. What's even worse is that it doesn't look like those visits have even addressed some of your issues. Have you considered taking it into a different dealer for a second opinion?Had front struts replaced twice. Second time with boot etc. also gas tank, took it in an they had no parts to fix it after taking my Atlas apart! Seat buckle and several other recalls after 14000 miles and 11 months. Car has been great when it’s working although the lane assist is not right on drivers side and emergency braking function isn’t predictable as to when it works or not. VW has serious problems with the manufacturing . Car play interface problematic also. It’s been great for long distance driving but it’s been in 6-7 times already. :frown2:
2019 rline same problem again its feels like a boat ride and a Rollercoaster its in the repair shop again+1 on the front suspension issue. had both front sway bar links replaced at around 25k. I wish that was my only issue. I, like Dodi1979 really liked this car for the first 8 months of ownership, now I cant wait to get rid of it. Even at the expense of massive value loss.
@dodi , how many times did the dealer tell you all of your issues are " normal" and/ or "common in the atlas" completely downplaying the lack of quality control in this model. I wonder what these will be like when they actually get some miles on them, say 100k +. I wont know because mine will be gone but I cant imagine they will stand the test of time based on the issues so early on.
