A day didn't go by when something broke!

2009 Volkswagen Routan SEL Premium CARB 4dr Minivan (4.0L 6cyl 6A)


It got to the point where virtually every day of ownership meant something else on this barge didn't fall off, break off, peel off or just plain disappear! Electronics were especially "gremlin filled" nightmares. Door locks would stop working, then start locking or unlocking by themselves. Fuel gauge would sit there and pulsate F to E like it was alive! Dash lighting would fade to nothing at night, then come back on brightly until it repeated the blackout thing. After some negotiations, we took it into the dealer and drove out a new Tourag. Then I found out that this thing was built by Chrysler....now I understand!

Best Features

Occasionally it actually was drivable! Rarely....

Worst Features

Dig a deep hole and push it in, cover it with a lot of dirt.
