I hate our 2018 Atlas and yesterday just confirmed another reason to hate it more. We have had numerous issues with our Atlas. Sunday my husband hit a curb going less than 5 mph. The tie rods bent and of course the car is out of ailment. We took it in to our dealer to fix. They cannot give us a complete estimate of all the damages until they start working on it. To begin with the bent inner and outer tie rods on the right front wheel are going to cost $1100 to replace. That doesn't include any other damage that might have been done. I am not sure how you could ever use this car "off terrain". The bigger problem, VW has a national back order of these tie rods. What? The dealer has no estimated time when the part will be available. It could be two weeks, it could be two months. We cannot drive the car. Talk about frustrating. What kind of car manufacturing doesn't have parts available? We should have stuck with a Honda, they don't lose value and they take care of their customers.
