2009 Volkswagen Routan SEL 4dr Minivan (4.0L 6cyl 6A)
Yes, I know the criticism -- the Routan is a Town and Country disguised as a Volkswagen.
I am a Volkswagen loyalist (this is my 3rd VW -- also have a 2008 Rabbit) and this is a GREAT minivan.
Comfortable, smooth, great seats, attractive, even powerful (4.0 engine).
Really, what's not to like?
Sure it isn't as nimble as my old Passat or my Rabbit, but I didn't expect it to be -- I mean it is a minivan, after all.
Yet, I think VW's suspension tweaks do make it superior to the Town and Country and - - dare I say -- the Odyssey and Sienna.
Heated seats, ride, peppy 4.0 engine, features.
Please include satellite radio as standard equipment.
Otherwise, no complaints.
