Best Minivan Out There !! — We test drove the Chrysler / Dodge, Honda etc etc you name it we tried it but the Routan won hands down. The VW Routan is a fantastic car for my expanding family. The build quality is fantastic. VW made minor touches inside and out to make the German badge quality shine through. We have 2 babies and we found that the Routan is a perfect size for all their stuff, a double stroller, food etc etc. We drove from NY to Boston with 2 babies, 4 adults, tons of luggage, stroller etc and everyone still had loads of room. We have also taken out all the seats and used to pick up large items from DIY stores. The engine is smooth, quiet and very powerful. The brakes smooth and effortless. The Interior is stunning. I cant praise the Routan enough, VW you hit the nail on the head with this one !!

Worthy Contender To Top 3 Spot In Minivans By Eric

Surprising power & acceleration for a family car let alone a mini van! The VW upgrades are very nicely designed but the Chrysler build quality is evident. The exterior styling is great, interior c... Read More

It's Had Some Issues By Heather

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 dow... Read More
