So Far So good

2009 Volkswagen Routan SE 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 6A)


My Routan now has 9,500 miles, but so far so good. I recently traveled 156 miles (according to MapQuest) with a full tank. During our travel I stopped at a gas station at the destination and filled up the tank again out of curiosity--exactly 3 gallons was consumed for the 78-mile (one-way) trip. My Routan has averaged 26 MPG on HWY. I'm not sure whether it improved because of my mild driving habit or the expensive gas from Chevron. Still, it is awesome to know it has better MPG than Toyota Sienna and Honda Odyssey, even w/ its VCM Feature. This van has also been very comfortable--a typical asset of VWs.

Best Features

Dome Lights and the 6-DVD/CD Player.

Worst Features

Foglamps for SE models. 8 Seater VS. 7 or at least an available accessory/option for a 2nd row center console seat.
