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


We've had our Routan for a little over a year and 21K miles later it is still fun to drive. So far we have not had any repairs other than the free scheduled maint. Have had several issues with the automatic doors not wanting to close. Very frustrating!! Factory Bridgestone tires are horrible. Will probably need to be replaced within the next 5K miles. 4.0 V6 has plenty of power. No trouble merging into highway traffic. Fuel economy isn't the greatest in town (16mpg). Average around 19 mpg in combined driving. Averaged 23 mpg on a trip from tx to in. Kids love it. Plenty of storage thanks to the in- floor storage. Tons of cup holders. Third-row seat is a little cramped, ok for kids.

Best Features

Comfy seats, fun to drive, styling, free maint. for 36K miles.

Worst Features

Better tires, make the instrument lights match the radio/ac controls, fix the door issues!
