Tarted up Chrysler eh? Worth a look
By Paul on


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


We looked at Siennas and Odysseys, however Toyota weren't willing to offer a whole lot in terms of incentives and I knew the Honda was due for a replacement model, so that kept it out of the running. I preferred the look and interior materials of the VW to the Chrysler. In addition, we got one heck of a good price for a loaded SEL Premium. So far, it's been perfect for the wife and the kids - she prefers the three rows of accessible seats, compared to our old CUV (Mazda CX-9) Time will tell on the reliability front.

Best Features

The multimedia interface is pretty decent; Two LCD screens keep the kids happy. Wife likes the back-up sensors in addition to the rear view camera. Rear windows that do roll down is a nice feature. The ride is vastly improved vs. the Town & Country. 36K's worth of services appeals immensely.

Worst Features

I'd prefer some real VW wood in this $40K van. Seems cheap with its fake metal plastic. The 4.0 V6, while gutsy, seems a little low-tech. Where's the blind spot sensors from the Town & Country? Or the auto-sensing main beams? For the money, it could be a little more feature rich.
