The law firm of Sauder Schelkopf LLC is investigating a class action lawsuit on behalf of Volkswagen Atlas vehicle owners (model years 2020-2021) that are prone to a “Driver Side Contact Error” fault message. It has been alleged that consumers with these Volkswagen vehicles are experiencing sudden and unexpected engagement of the emergency brake while driving, resulting in the vehicle coming to a complete stop, often times in traffic. In many instances, all the windows in the vehicle will also simultaneously go down. When this error message occurs, it often means the vehicle thinks a vehicle door is open; however, it is often due to a faulty wire harness. It has also been alleged that consumers who present their vehicles to Volkswagen for repair are informed that Volkswagen does not have the necessary parts to the repair the vehicle and does not know when they will have such. As a result, current and former owners and lessees may be forced to pay for alternative replacement parts and repairs out-of-pocket or be stuck with a non-operable vehicle for long periods of time while awaiting the parts required for the repair to be completed.
