History
Purchased off showroom floor March 2015. Now have 155k highway miles on it. Never any problems until the emissions update last year. I drive loaner cars more now than my own. I live 50 miles from closest dealership and 60 miles opposite direction from work, so I spend a good deal of time on the road each day.....driving Atlas's more these days than my own car. Hoping to find a mechanic who really knows these vehicles to get the car tuned up PROPERLY and second opinion on all of the work that has been done over the past 12 months.

No idea. It's up in the glove compartment and takes a CD or SD card or various plugs. But I've never actually tried it!

What maintenance did you have to have done during that 150k stretch?

Sorry to hear about your troubles. Bought my 15 tdi lux at the end of February after kicking myself for 3 years after I got rid of my 08 v6. Had similar issues with my dealer, obviously purchased post fix, I can relate to having to drive the giant hippo of a car called the atlas. Horrible car. What I noticed even with my 2008 is that so many dealers, in order to save time; WILL HAVE ANYONE WORK ON YOUR CAR. Meaning its not a experienced tech who went through training on these complicated machines. After having worked in the car business for 3 years of my life, I witnessed a lot of shop mishaps and confusion which sometimes ended badly. At this point your best bet, in my biased opinion, is to find an awesome vw/audi mechanic, possibly a custom ESC certified shop who know the cars. Dealers have high turnover. Sadly this leads to the occasional rookie coming to work on your car. Sorry for the rant!
