2021 Volkswagen Atlas
There are many mixed feelings about the Volkswagen Atlas. People who have purchased one have reported problems with the climate system, engine minor, exhaust system and the emissions system. Volkswagen’s usual warranty is four years/50,000 miles but because of the known issues, many who purchase it also purchase the extended warranty to have protection for 150,000 miles or up to ten years.
The Atlas does have a huge cabin space and an exterior that is very stylish. However, the concerns with reliability are keeping many buyers wary of purchasing one. Consumers who are looking for this size of vehicle are choosing a Kia Telluride, Mazda CX – 9 or a Hyundai Palisade instead.

The Chevy Silverado and the GMC Sierra both scored the lowest possible score on the Consumer Reports rating scale.

Consumers looking for a new truck may want to check out the Ram 1500 or a Toyota Tundra. Both of these trucks have high reliability ratings.
