Good small town car. That's it. by An MSN Autos Consumer on 02/09/2013. Trim: 2012 Volkswagen Routan SEL w/RSE & Nav, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Price They came down this year so we bought one for our servce fleet and with the price we put 100 miles in 8 month but had tons of repairs
Cons: Drive rain, heavy city use had ours in the shop every month. Three transmission in 8 months and the dealer how says there are about to recall them for falty transmissions.
Overall review: Good looking van but not at all worth the money when you factor in the down time for repair.

Better than others by ZZ on 08/13/2014. Trim: 2012 Volkswagen Routan SEL w/RSE & Nav, Owned 3 years.
Pros: I have it since 2009. Fully loaded and comfortable for long rides. We did a trip from Ontario to Florida in February this year; comsuption was 9.5 l/100km. Got noisy front right bearing but still managed to come back. total trip 6,000km. first set of brakes changed at 80,000k. the second one was shorter lived. got towing package but never put a hitch, have to do it. great car, with german suspension, feels like driving a nice Lexus. I tried Dodge version and Honda: so much of tale shifting. This one is not.
Cons: Chrysler finishings, some rust on fenders. bad warranty comparing to VW originals.
Overall review: Great car, no major problems (125K now), Final assembly Chrysler quality (not so good)

A great van in my opinion. by RickNC on 01/27/2014. Trim: 2012 Volkswagen Routan SE, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Styling, performance, handling and comfort. Economy is relatively good for the size of the vehicle. We bought the Routan new in Oct 2011 at a huge discount and have had it for more than two years at this writing. We have not experienced any problems with it although there are only 15,300 miles on it. It is based on the Chrysler T&C and the Dodge Grand Caravan. I like the styling a little better than those.
Cons: Low sales of the Routan and problems with the earlier models caused VW to discontinue the van at the end of the 2012 model year. Depreciation is a lot greater. than the Japanese brands - the large discount offered has softened the blow and I should be happy with it for years to come. .
Overall review: I consider the Routan to be a solid van.
