The VW Routan is not up to par with the typical VW car. Our minivan has had several things go wrong in the four years we have owned it, including costly EGR replacement and an entire circuit board replacement, totaling over $2,000 for those two alone. Add in poor braking system that requires brake replacements every 20K miles and rotors every 30K miles and you will spend more money than you bargained for on this minivan!
Story
Having the radiator hoses come loose and cause black billowing smoke to come from the engine as radiator fluid was shot all over the place.
Pros
This is practically identical to a Chrysler Town and Country. It is spacious, practical for families with children, and comes with many great amenities. The automatic sliding doors are a life save with young children, and the rear entertainment system is a nice addition. The storage is plentiful, including under foot storage compartments and rear, stow-and-go seating. It includes a back up camera, GPS system, and heated seats, which the parents will enjoy while driving in the winter.
Cons
The maintenance costs on this minivan are far worse than any other minivan out there. TPMs are connected to the tire stem, and break easily, causing your tire to flatten immediately. This happened twice while driving, nearly causing an accident. In 100,000 miles, it has required four front and three rear brake replacements, three sets of rotors, an entire circuit board, six TMP's, EGR system, radiator, and many other minor repairs. I have spent over $8,000 on maintenance more than twice what I have spent on my other car with 150K miles.
