Beware of this beauty...

2009 Volkswagen Routan SEL 4dr Minivan (4.0L 6cyl 6A)
I have owned my 09 Routan SEL for around 4 mo and about 4000 miles and disappointed does not begin to describe my state of mind!!! My brakes have been squealing since about the 1000 mile mark and it is "normal" according to a qualified technician. Both of my sliding doors have given me numerous problems, including not closing properly and I have come back to a vehicle with an open door. Gas mileage is atrocious. This vehicle has been a nightmare to deal with (especially with two young kids). Yes it is beautiful, but at what price?
Interior and exterior design, and space.
To make a set of brake pads that don't squeal at 1000 miles and doors that actually close when the close button is pushed.
