Our auto lawyers are investigating allegations that Volkswagen’s automatic braking system for the VW Atlas engages the brakes even when there are no cars around. The problems with the automated braking may be part of “front assist,” which is designed to slow down the VW Atlas if there is a car or obstacle in front of it. Automatic braking problems may also arise as part of “lane assist,” designed to keep drivers in the correct lane. The sensors and detection system for VW Atlas may not be working properly.

2018 VW Atlas Driver Complaints about Automatic Braking System
Medium reports that “[t]he 2018 Volkswagen Atlas has over a dozen complaints tied to its AEB [automatic emergency braking] system.” The reporting says that VW Atlas drivers have submitted complaints about “sudden and unexpected braking,” particularly when the Atlas driver is crossing several lanes of traffic or is traveling down a decline that levels off.
As Medium reports:
None of the consumers who filed a complaint found a fix after visiting their dealers, but several note in their complaints that Volkswagen is aware of how the AEB system performs on the Atlas model and considers it to be operating normally. The NHTSA database provided no recall or manufacturer communications to date linked to this issue.
