Warranty nightmare, thanks VW for nothing.

I would not recommend any VW vehicle because of the issues I have had with the company. At 18k miles my router began to shake while at idle. I took it in to the dealership because it was still under warranty. After 2 weeks at the dealership the mechanic agreed there was a issue but was unable to do anything about it because the warranty company would not allow him to do further diagnostics because there were no engine light or codes. After taking the van back to the dealer a few times I ended up going to a mechanic and paid out of pocket to get it fixed. By then the damage had been done and the entire engine had to be replaced. The total cost was 5 thousand dollars for something that was 100% covered by the dealer warranty. I will never purchase another VW. Since having the engine replaced I have had no issues with the van. I have the sell premium trim level. Everything is still in excellent working order. It has 76000 miles on it and we've replaced the tires twice, done the brakes 4 times, had the transmission serviced at 50k miles, and regular oil changes. I have gotten many compliments on the car but still wouldn't recommend it.

VW badge made by Chrysler for VW!

The VW routan was made by Chrysler, it is not of the same quality as VW made cars. The brakes overheat causing the rotors to warp, the plastic dash makes creaking noises, you hear a lot of road noise and wind going down the highway as well. The sound system is awful as well. Our DVD entertainment center sometimes does not want to work. It is a very comfortable van on long trips vs the Chrysler minivan. I also like the cargo room and the auto hatch and doors.

You can only take it to certain mechanics which limits your options when it needs to be repaired.

The general feel and feeling while driving is nice. Not too top heavy or bulky and I've grow. To like the backup cam and the push button open doors. My biggest dislike is it can only go to the foreign car mechanic and that when it gets cold the auto doors don't want to function correctly and even manually trying to open or close doors becomes difficult.
