MyVW Atlas 2018 hit the curve at a slow speed and immediately all side airbags were deployed. We were surprised this happen. Took it over to the dealer and they told us they have seen this problem before but since this was airbag issues we needed to take to their body-shop.

Contact AAA as this is going to be expensive. This seems to be as a manufacture issues since the sensor deployed at a low speed and low impact. Was looking on the internet for similar issues and was disturbed that this seems to be happening on VW Atlas.

Manufacturer needs to be responsible for this defective Airbag sensors.
