The best

I love my new van! If I could have ordered the van that wanted brand new, this would have been it right down to the color.

- Jenn, 2009 Volkswagen Routan

Will be back.

At first I wasn't sure then after driving it and looking around at other models that this was the best deal for the car. We love it and will be back.

As never expected!

Our car is an awesome surprise! Frankly, I am not into vans at all. Mostly used to sport cars, even SUVs seemed to me bulky and slow. This is the oposite. Very sleek, powerful and maneuverable, feels like a Passat, only with better view! Great comfort and space, and versatile seat management. Economic and fast. Great amenities. Best family car I've had.
