2009 Volkswagen Routan SE 4dr Minivan w/Rear Seat Entertainment (3.8L 6cyl 6A)


The 3.8L engine is horribly underpowered and the transmission is too anxious to find a home in 6th gear. Trying to accelerate to get on the freeway leaves me depressed as I watch the fuel gauge race to the left faster than the car gains speed. The ride is smooth and the entertainment features make a ride of any duration tolerable. The interior features are pleasant and the exterior looks eerily similar to the Dodge and Chrysler.

Best Features

The remote start is a godsend in this blistering Texas heat. The entertainment system keeps the kiddies happy happy. LED lights!

Worst Features

The engine is underpowered. The gas mileage is less than advertised. The gas tank is flawed and it takes me 10 minutes to fill it up.
