2010 Volkswagen Routan Minivan S 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Our family comes from a long line of VWs. We've owned Bugs, 2 Sciroccos, a Vanagon, Passat, Golf, and yes even a Thing! That being said we've strayed away from the VW brand for the past 15 years, mainly because we felt there were other better choices. Recently, we decided to give the Routan a chance, basically because of the attractive pricing. It was discounted by almost $6,000. OK, we all know that this a badge-engineered Chrysler and I've seen both the Grand Caravan and Town & Country up close. The Routan has a distinctly European flair about it. Bottom line: We paid the same price as a Dodge but got a great VW in return. It definitely has a more upscale feel compared to Chrysler.


Best Features

Sheer value, built much better than its American cousins. Looks like a million bucks next other comparable minivans out there. Lots of storage space, comfy seats, a reclining third row seat. We cross shopped Toyota and Honda and their similar models were severely stripped and still cost more.


Worst Features

I know that the Routan is stigmatized by its Chrysler roots but give it a chance like we did and you won't regret it. As for improvements, I suppose all models should get the 4.0 V6 standard. It would have been great too if alloys were standard with the S model. Other than that, it's a great van!
