2009 Volkswagen Routan Minivan SEL Premium CARB 4dr Minivan (4.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

This van is an eye-catcher! There is not a single thing left to want on this van. Harddrive, folding 3rd row (power), and more storage than a cargo ship. The A/C in the 3rd row is just as good as the front and the fact every door is powered, incredible. If you're looking for a van, and you don't check this out, you've seen nothing but the average. LOOK at this superior vehicle... HOLY SMOKES!


Favorite Features

Power everything, rear view camera, uConnect for bluetooth connections, side door windows go down, room, room, and more room.


Suggested Improvements

Gas mileage.

2009 Volkswagen Routan Minivan SEL Premium CARB 4dr Minivan (4.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

It got to the point where virtually every day of ownership meant something else on this barge didn't fall off, break off, peel off or just plain disappear! Electronics were especially "gremlin filled" nightmares. Door locks would stop working, then start locking or unlocking by themselves. Fuel gauge would sit there and pulsate F to E like it was alive! Dash lighting would fade to nothing at night, then come back on brightly until it repeated the blackout thing. After some negotiations, we took it into the dealer and drove out a new Tourag. Then I found out that this thing was built by Chrysler....now I understand!


Favorite Features

Occasionally it actually was drivable! Rarely....


Suggested Improvements

Dig a deep hole and push it in, cover it with a lot of dirt.
