I think this car is a good buy, it is very comfortable, very solid and also a great looker. The engine is very quiet, the only thing I have noticed is that the gear shifting is not as smooth as I would like and the gas mileage is not the best. The features in the van are great and easy to use. Overall I think this is a great family van and worth the money.
Purchased new 2009 VW Routan. Unfortunately, nothing but problems! Three pairs of brakes/rotors in 18k miles. AC keeps leaking Freon and won't keep car cold over 90 degrees. Had transmission leak on floor in garage. Fixed leaky seal, but transmission still clunks into gears when shifting. Cruise control varies by 7-8 MPH. Gas mileage is HORRIBLE in town. 14 at best. Hwy is okay at 22 or 23. Ride is nice and quiet, but really lacks power. If you want a lemon that looks nicer than other minivans, buy this. If not, spend the extra money on a Honda or Toyota.
I am so very pleased with my new VW Routan 2009. Never owned an automobile with all the comforts that my VW came with. 6 seater passenger van, able to make calls hand free, 2 dvd monitors and surround sound and so much more. Don't take my word for it, just take a test drive and you will see. Thanks CM.
