A Nice Alternative Worth Considering

ReviewA good value given the standard equipment. Materials do not feel as cheap as in some competitor vans. Drives a bit more truck-like than some competitors but not harsh. The view is commanding and pick up is outstanding. We've averaged about 19.5 MPG so far. Features such as the storage shelf in the rear are great. My wife loves the room and that she can actually move between the seats easily as we are loading things. Build quality is generally good, but glove box has broken twice and a rattle in the door pillar caused by missing/ damaged liner clips from the factory was disappointing. Response from VW has been sympathetic but not what we hoped.
Best FeaturesView, VR6 engine, Safety features (ESP, ABS, Traction Control), Dashboard lighting, Sliding windows, headroom (much better than in sister's Sienna or brother's Windstar) and interior maneuverability.
Worst FeaturesVW should better screen it's dealerships for fitness to service product. Front comfort is alright but taller drivers need more leg room Needs Tilt wheel, better build quality (glove box and panels), better Customer service from VW in Michigan
