2009 Volkswagen Routan SEL CARB 4dr Minivan (4.0L 6cyl 6A)
This was a great purchase, its the first care I purchase in a while since I have been leasing. I never thought I would say this about a minivan but after drinving it I have to say that it is fun to drive this mini-van. Lots of room for the kids and adults. Need to get screens for dvd, hope they make it standard on higher sel model, but even without it the kids love it. My wife never thought she would drive a mini-van, but she loves our routan. Would highly recommend it for a family. Go with the 4.0l v6 as I felt the 3.8 was quite weak for my standards, but the 4.0 got a kick to it, make sure u drive both to tell the difference.
tri-climate control, controles on steering wheel, comfort of seats, dash lights.
DVD standard on SEL model. also fog lights. the radio controls on the front of the steering wheel rather than the back would be nicer. consider a different place for the shifter, but it is quite unique where it is now...
