DON'T buy a routon, BIG safety issue.
By BoMom on


2010 Volkswagen Routan SEL Premium 4dr Minivan (4.0L 6cyl 6A)


We just purchased the Routon SEL premium from jersey village Volkswagan in houston TX. I paid $37,000 for there top of the line routon. The dvd screens in the routon block the entire view from your rear view mirror,it is a huge safety hazard. Frankly this vehicle needs to be recalled before there are numerous accidents asssociated with this major design flaw.The dealership which is owned by sonic automotive even offered to have dvd screens put into the headrests, so they obviously know about there safety issue.Don't make my mistake. Buy another brand of mini van stay away from the routon. There is numerous amounts of problems with this vehichle and the one I mentioned was just one.

Best Features

Remote start,power 3rd row

Worst Features

DVD screens need a whole redign so the driver can see out the rear view mirror,NAV way below par,the premium sound system is a joke, the back up camera is terrible.The seats are not comfortable.The car is just very cheaply made.The road noise is not good either.
