It has plenty of space for extra passengers or luggage.

It has plenty of room for luggage, groceries and most anything else you need to haul. The third row of seats can be up, flat or partially up depending on your needs. It works well for kids and the one button push doors are a plus. It does not have enough leg room up front for drivers and passengers. I'm tall and I can't stretch my legs out all the way.

The van has been great and I would buy it again.

The car has been really great. There have been no major problems. It is comfortable, well insulated with little road noise. It was a good value. There are some quirks with some of the dash lights. It has nearly 200,000 miles and it does leak oil and we are having trouble with the wheel bearings.

- Melissa W

It seats a lot of people but most people have trouble getting in my car

It's pretty comfortable and it works for me. Right after I bought the car I had get the back brakes done and one of the tires had a small hole in it which I got fixed. Most of my church friends have a hard time getting in and out of my car so I'm thinking about getting something different

Safety Recalls (2)

Electrical System > Ignition > Switch Mar 1, 2011
Report Receipt Date:
Mar 1, 2011
NHTSA Campaign:
11V151000
Summary:
VOLKSWAGEN IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2010 ROUTAN VEHICLES MANUFACTURED FROM OCTOBER 2009 THROUGH JUNE 2010. SOME VEHICLES MAY EXPERIENCE INADVERTENT IGNITION KEY DISPLACEMENT FROM THE RUN TO ACCESSORY POSITION WHILE DRIVING CAUSING THE ENGINE TO SHUT OFF.
Consequence:
AN ENGINE SHUTTING OFF SUDDENLY WHILE DRIVING COULD INCREASE THE RISK OF A CRASH.
Remedy:
DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE WIN MODULE FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING APRIL 2011. OWNERS MAY CONTACT VOLKSWAGEN AT 1-800-822-8987.
Electrical System Apr 1, 2015
Report Receipt Date:
Apr 1, 2015
NHTSA Campaign:
15V194000
Summary:
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2009 Routan vehicles manufactured June 25, 2008, to June 10, 2009, and 2010 Routan vehicles manufactured October 1, 2009, to August 11, 2010. This defect can affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. Road conditions or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine.
Consequence:
If the ignition key inadvertently moves into the OFF or ACCESSORY position, the engine will turn off, which will then depower various key safety systems including, but not limited to, air bags, power steering, and power braking. Loss of functionality of these systems may increase the risk of crash and/or increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
Remedy:
Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will replace the ignition switch and key FOBs, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in April 2015 for 2009 Routan vehicles, and in August 2015 for 2010 Routan vehicles. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-822-8987. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 28H1. Note: This recall supersedes recalls 11V151 and 14V396. Vehicles that previously received an ignition switch trim ring as a recall remedy must have their vehicles remedied again under this campaign. Vehicles that have already received a new ignition switch are not covered by this campaign.
