2009 Volkswagen Routan SEL 4dr Minivan w/Rear Seat Entertainment (4.0L 6cyl 6A)


Bought a used (20k miles) one and its nothing but problems. Doesnt start all the time. New battery, new starter...wont start. While in gear and idleing forward it shakes the vehicle. At highway speed it surges like tranny slipping. Rear electric seat stopped working and its rarely used. Sliding door on passenger side makes a horrible noise when opening, was told its fine. Pulls to the right. 2 sets of tires in 40k miles. 3 alignments. I think this vehicle was wrecked and they didnt tell us. Bought one year old from dealer for $29k (less than book value) one year and 20k miles later its worth $19k??? WTF!! still owe $26k. Odyssey is next.

Best Features

Nice entertainment system. Although you cannot watch a DVD from drivers seat like in our 2009 when in park. Quiet. Good gas mileage Leather seats dont appear to be all leather but comfortable.

Worst Features

Dont buy it. No suggestions to offer, its value drops WAY too much for the price you pay. Its a money pit and needs to be valued at half of its price.
