Multiple reports of malfunctioning electrical systems have been lodged by those who own or lease a 2018 Volkswagen Atlas. From batteries that drain prematurely to complete transmission failure, these electrical system problems are making drivers genuinely concerned for their safety. While a total of 11 recalls have been issued by the manufacturer regarding this make and model, those who are struggling with electrical system issues are still awaiting a clear diagnosis or effective repair solution.
One of the most common complaints by drivers of the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas is of a malfunctioning battery that either loses its charge prematurely or only functions intermittently. According to one driver, the vehicle’s “stop/start” system appears to drain the battery extremely quickly, but this feature does not deactivate—even when the battery charge dips too low to restart the motor. Another owner described recurring instances of the battery warning light illuminating while the vehicle traveled at different speeds, followed by a sudden seizing of the vehicle. Even after several battery replacements, the issue persisted.
