Welcome! My experience with the Atlas and VW's for that matter has been great. Bought my first VW (Passat 4Mo) in 1999. Held onto that for 10 years with no issues. Bought a VW CC 4Mo in 2009 and held onto that until I bought the Atlas 4Mo this past June. My wife drives a Tiguan and I'm hoping to talk her into the Arteon once that comes out.
