2010 Volkswagen Routan SEL Premium 4dr Minivan (4.0L 6cyl 6A)
Drives and rides well for a minivan. Motor and transmission seem OK. This van has had many recalls and just stopped tonight all the lights / electronics went out and the motor died. We drifted off the road - it restarted. It already rattles / fan belts squeak Drivers side window doesn't work. DVD screens block rear view mirror. Feels cheap. AC really isn't cold for a brand new car. Something is wrong with the tuning the fuel economy is not nearly what it is rated for. VW put lipstick on this pig. Do more research before you buy one.
It does drive well for a minivan and all the bells and whistles are nice but not if its not going to run more than 25,000 miles.
The DVD screens are a hazard. It's a cheap Chrysler. Build a VW from the ground up - remake he VW camper van with the little TDI engine. It's to bad this great German company tried to dress up a Chrysler.
