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


My Volkswagon Routan 2009 was serviced back in March 2013 - transmission & power steering.
When the service was completed at a VW service center, I picked up the car, drove home the short distance, and parked in my driveway.
The next morning while at a traffic light, the car started to go on fire from the engine and eventually burst into flames.
Thankfully no one was hurt, but I don't believe it was a coincidence that it happened a few hours since the car was picked up from the service at Legend Audi Volkswagon in Amityville.

Aside from that incident, the car had numerous issues throughout the 4 years, i.e. brakes, glitchy doors, glitchy radio, and recalled parts.
Terrible car.
