Great so far

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


So far, we love this van. We have put 4,000 miles on it. The seats on this van are very comfortable and it has plenty of power. Performance is fantastic and it takes sharp corners like a well-tuned sedan. Gas mileage does fantastic on the highway (27 mpg), but it only gets 14.7mpg in the city wthen the A/C is running. Rear ceiling height is a problem if you get the moon roof. The moon roof needs room to slide back, so you lose several inches of ceiling height. This means that the rear seat TV is low enough to block the rear view mirror and that the rear seats can't tip forward because they hit the ceiling. We have had four 8 hour trips with the family and we loved every minute.

Best Features

Seat comfort, RSE, HID headlights, Premium radio system, feel of steering wheel

Worst Features

Gas mileage is not so good in the city. The tires they put on the car have problems (performance and balancing). Fit of bumper covers. Power sliding doors have issues. Ceiling height with moon roof needs to improve.
