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


So here is the skinny on this - If you promise something, stand behind it and deliver - does not matter who the company is. The reason we switched from a SUV to a Minivan was because the gas mileage was supposed to be so much better 17/25. Instead I am getting similar mileage to the 7 passenger SUV that we had before this. 13/19 My wife loved her SUV and I convinced her that this would save us money on the gas, instead I feel like a fool but that is because, I / we were lied to and deceived.

Best Features

The car on all levels is awesome, it has everything anyone can ask for in a car, minivan, SUV or whatever you want for a family car. (our is the fully loaded SEL Premium) 45K + Tax 2009 model

Worst Features

I would not have complained one bit if VW / Chrysler / Dodge or whoever makes the car would have been honest about the MPG. 13/19 NOT 17/25 full tank gave me 350 miles (suppose to give 500 miles) In the city it only gives 220 miles (suppose to give 350 miles) Average is 250-280 miles
