The engine is not made by Volkswagen. The VW Routan has a town and country engine in it. And that's a good thing because repairs cost less this way. The mechanic said our van is "special" because it evidently has an identity crisis being it has a VW body but a Town and Country (I think that's Chrysler maybe?) engine.

What I like about the van is the roominess of it. I also like how the farthest back seat will fold down into the floorboard to make a huge area to pack stuff. I also like that the van will fit our entire family of five people and our two dogs. What I don't like is that the van has a few problems that we can not afford to get fixed, the rear passenger window quit working. I also don't like that the AC sucks up all the gas really fast when we use it and we need the AC because we have very hot summers here.

And it is a very comfortable and roomy and stylish minivan.

I really love the room the push buttons that are located conveniently throughout the van all the room the seats fold into the ground the backseat and the two middle seats fold up to room it is very stylish looking inside custom leather plenty of storage holders very comfortable and sleep ready you can lay all seats flat back and go to sleep on a long trip and plenty of room in the trunk when all seats are not folded down.

Lots of legroom storage and great for family with kids

The car I own is absolutely amazing.It has enough leg room enough storage under car compartments.I can store a medium luggage in the front compartment along with a small box of items.The back seat can be flat and put in all the way in the compartment and becomes a very large trunk area to take bulk sized items.Great family car for kids and adults.Spacious and Efficient.
