We bought a VW Routan Minivan for our every-growing family. It has the most comfortable seats of all the minivans and looks fantastic inside and out. We installed a rear DVD system which my kids and I love. Tons of cargo space. Only 7 seats (compared to 8 in the Sienna) but that's more than we need and also allows more space in between the 2nd row club seats. My only complaint about this car is its pickup when driving on ECO mode - coming from a dead stop to 10 mph, it has one little moment when the car jerks. Love the look of the van on the outside too - very modern, clean lines. We bought it in silver which does not show much dirt or grime. Smaller turning radius than the Sienna. Another thing to notice when buying the 2011 is the gasoline: it has the capability of using E85 or regular gas. E85 is difficult to find in the area I live in. I know i would get better as mileage using that type of gas though. We really love this car and wish we had bought a minivan sooner! Still feel super cool when driving it!
2011 Volkswagen Routan - 11/30/2012
This is one of the best minivans ever I previous had a dodge and had problems with passengers who were large both in height and weight and they never felt comfortable sitting in the back either in the second or third rows. With the VW my passengers are comfortable and have plenty of leg room with the newer models the seats move forward or back for extra comfort. The driive is smooth and has plenty of pick up and go. I have been able to carry a 4 by 8 foot sheets of wood or even beams by removing the seats in the second row yes this can be a hasle but they are easy to remove and reinstall. The other nice part about the VW is that there is no engine noise or outside noises so you are able to carry on a conversation to the other passengers in the car with out yelling. The most important thing about the Routan is that its saftey, air bags all around makes it one of the safest cars. I know this because I have survived a roll over accident and this is the biggest reason why I bought another Routan.
