2009 Volkswagen Routan SEL 4dr Minivan w/Rear Seat Entertainment (4.0L 6cyl 6A)

Review

We bought the van cuz it seemed to have more features for the buck and that VW service would be around in case Chrysler wouldn't in the case of caravan/T&C. Only have about 1500 miles but half is because dealer drove it due to dealer trade and going in for service due to "check engine" light on for most of its life thus far. Turns out a transmission seal was compromised (at 1500 miles!!!) and in will be in shop (twice) for total of 16 days. on the bright side, i'm only 14 days from qualifying for Lemon Law. In addition, shades and interior not put together well, bumper came apart a bit. Hopefully, we'll be free of issues after it comes back. Fingers crossed.

Favorite Features

Media and 2 TVs, quiet cabin and comfortable ride, under floor storage, price (26,500 before tax, license, registration and no financing)

Suggested Improvements

adjustment middles seats back and forth, wider 3rd row, more child latches in 3rd row, better storage behind seats, better design of (bigger) buttons, gauge and computer screen can't be seen with sunlight, standard roof rails on SE or higher, trim the head so the car isn't so long.
