2009 Volkswagen RoutanReview

Overall:

Just bought a used 2009 VW Routan. So far it drives great and has the major features we were looking for (leather interior, heated seats, sunroof, Bluetooth). The automatic doors are a nice feature and the stow away back row is handy as well. It is not the roomiest minivan on the market, but it does offer more features than your typical Dodge Caravan. While it does seat 7, there is only clips for 3 car seats.

It is no longer made so it is hard to find a low mileage Routan. It is a Chrysler town and country rebadged. It comes with a lot of standard features. I would highly recommend one. Especially if you can find a low mileage one.

It's Had Some Issues — It's a great minivan for an early 30's driver. It is sleekly styled, but now that it has almost 100k on it, is starting to deteriorate. It doesn't owe us much, but due to our mileage we are upside down in it due to financing.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The power features are convenient, the styling of the dreaded minivan is great.

Cons: had major transmission issues, covered under warranty, but not fun.

Great Economy Van With Lots Of Features — I love this van. It has all the amenities to keep kids occupied on long trips while keeping the comfort of an easy chair. This van has a lot of stowaway so storage/hauling small to medium furniture is easy. Back up camera and powered rear mirrors make seeing behind you a cake walk. Power everything makes opening/closing doors (including hatch) as easy as touching a button.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great Van.  Powerful.  I make long trips over mountains and it can keep up with little loss of mpg's.

Cons: Has a tendency to act underpowered in lower gears (I'm guessing this is by design as it is meant to go faster)

Fun And Practical At Once. — In relation to minivans, this is a great choice in terms of looks, comfort, and practicality. The sound system is great, bluetooth phone sync is useful, and the car looks and drives like you would expect from a Volkswagen. The price range is fantastic, especially given the runaway rising prices of other minivan imports.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Every bit a Volkswagen in terms of handling and comfort to drive. Sleek interior and overall quite well-designed.

Cons: Trunk storage could be better. Getting to the backseat isn't easy, as it is in any minivan.

It Great For The Kids...make You Still Feel Old When You Drive It Though — I bought is car for the kids really. The feautres it came with 2 dvd screens and it does its job in keeping them quite on long drives. When the twins were very small it the power doors and trunk were so nice when it was raining ect. It is really easy to drive and has great power. We tow our 4wheeler and dirt bike with it now problem. There really isnt anything bad about the car persay but its still a minivan. Now that the kids are older I would love to have an escalade to show off some class and still have the room with the features so we will see overall the car is an easy 4.5 stars....would be 5 but it is kind of a gas guzzler.

Pros: Hauls all the kids and their stuff. Having a 3 year old and twins a van was a must

Cons: Its a mini van and I still cant seem to get over that.

Drive It To Experience It — build in Windsor, Ontario and cheaper than Dodge Grand Caravan... and better quality and price and engine... What a shame Grand Caravan. German cars were, are and will be the best in the world. Ford, Chrysler and GM just wish to be better than German cars, but because of CAW it will never be better than German cars

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: it's VW!!!

Cons: that's made by CAW members
