2009 Volkswagen Routan SE 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 6A)
This is the first vehicle I have ever owned where I have to put in a quart of oil every 1,000 miles or the oil light will come on and the manufacturer considers that normal.
There are other things that seemed minor, like side door catching etc.
But all of the sudden after hitting 30,000 miles to have to start putting in a quart of oil every 1,000 miles (now at 45,000 miles) just seems ridiculous to be considered normal.
Our other car is a VW Golf that we love ,and the Routan is just an all around disappointment.
Wishing we had bought the Honda or Toyata minivan instead.
