2009 Volkswagen Routan SE 4dr Minivan w/Rear Seat Entertainment (3.8L 6cyl 6A)

Review

Although there are many poor reviews of the Routan out there in cyberspace, most are written by folks who either haven't driven or don't own one. It is a great van, and drives nothing like the Town & Country. This is our first mini-van and have nothing but great things to say about it. It is superbly comfortable, quiet, and for the money (compared to Honda/Toyota) it comes well equipt. On a recent 1000 trip, it averaged 25.2 mpg (running ~70mph), which is impressive for a 4000+lb vehicle. It's future remains uncertain (Chrylser in Chapther 11, talk of not producing more Routans) this is a top notch van and I would highly recommend it.

Favorite Features

Way it drives/handles (for a mini-van). Interior styling/fit/space. Free maintenance program.

Suggested Improvements

Although the 3.8l is fine, it's a pity the 4.0 isn't standard (or even available on SE). Also a pity that a few toys are reserved only for the SEL and SEL Premium (upgraded display, better console, power 3rd row). Oh, yeh, I'd love a TDI......(but know it won't happen!)
