Despite its name, the Routan is a version of the Chrysler Town & Country. High points include a pleasant ride, Chrysler's new smooth and refined V6, and a quiet cabin. Handling should benefit from Chrysler's recent tweaks to its minivans. But the VW doesn't offer the Chrysler's handy fold-in-the-floor second-row seats. The power-folding third-row seat and rear hatch operate slowly. Reliability has been well below average.
