Awesome family van, gets great gas mileage, and roomy.
Love our Routan, I was looking for a SUV. I needed a lot a room for a special need stroller, feeding equipment and our service dog. The SUV did not have the space. I went to a Volkswagen dealership and saw the Routan. It had great room for all the equipment I needed. Seats fold down and if you do not want them all to fold you can pick which one you want to fold down. You can take seats out easily. Heated seat awesome for Wisconsin winters. Has two DVD player with no extra cost and a bonus for us. Came with cordless headphones. Each DVD can play different movies if they do not want to watch the same. Great for traveling to doctor appointments. Easy to get the kids out of the van. Extra plugs for all electronics front and in the back. Plenty of cup holders. Locks for the doors and windows, so kids cannot open them. Floor storage compartments with easy access to open them. Seats are very comfortable and recline back for naps. Fits three big car seats. We have leather seats, easy to clean. The back seats in the van have plenty of legroom. Center of the seat has no seat in front of it, so for an extra tall person there would still be plenty of legroom. No major repairs. Just the basic tires, brakes, etc repaired. We have almost 200,000 miles and it is still running awesome.
