Model News

Following its introduction last year, the 2010 Volkswagen Routan minivan receives only minor updates. Among them, Meteor Gray, Cocoa Bean, and Tanzanite exterior colors replace Blonde Maple and Atlantis Blue. A towing package and power sunroof are now standard on SEL and SEL Premium models, while fog lamps and remote start have been added to the SEL Premium.

Inside, 3-zone climate control is standard across the model range, as are adjustable pedals and a change from blue display lighting to white. Heated seats are now standard on SE models, and Bluetooth hands-free connectivity has been added to SE, SEL and SEL Premium trims. Navigation is now an option on the SEL, while Rear Seat Entertainment (RSE) is optional on SE and SEL models.


Value Writeup

The Routan appeals to minivan buyers who want a little more style and verve in their family hauler. In addition to clean VW design cues inside and out, the Routan has a suspension that's tuned more for crisp handling than ride comfort compared to the Chrysler minivans on which it's based. With its 4.0-liter engine, the Routan is also one of the most fuel-efficient minivans available, with an EPA highway estimate of 25 mpg.


Model Highlights

The Routan offers two different V6 engines, both strong enough to bring sprightly performance and adequate acceleration even when the van is fully loaded. Base S and better-equipped SE models come with a 197-horsepower, 3.8-liter V6, while luxurious SEL models get a more powerful 253-horsepower, 4.0-liter V6. All models get a 6-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. In addition to offering more power and torque, the larger, 4.0-liter engine is also more economical, with EPA fuel economy ratings of 17 mpg city, 25 highway--1 mpg better in the city and 2 mpg better on the highway than the 3.8-liter.

The Routan promises to be more exciting to drive than the typical minivan, with a so-called "European tuned" MacPherson front suspension and twist-beam rear axle suspension with crisp rack-and-pinion steering. When properly optioned, the Routan is capable of towing up to 3,500 pounds.

Inside, the Routan gets a clean, 2-tone appearance to the instrument panel, with materials and gauge faces that match the rest of VW's lineup and crisp white lighting on all gauges and dials. All models come with supportive bucket seats in front, but there are two possible configurations for the second row. The Routan S model has a reclining bench seat in the second row that can be removed when desired, while other models have two second-row captain's chairs. Both configurations feature a 60/40-split third-row bench that folds neatly into the floor to expand cargo space when it's not in use.

No matter what the trim, the Routan comes with standard features and conveniences aimed at busy families and passenger comfort, including a total of 13 cupholders and plenty of storage cubbies throughout for everything from childrens' toys to parents' PDAs.

The S model includes 3-zone air conditioning, cruise control, power windows and locks and a 6-speaker CD sound system. The SE adds a lot more of the luxuries most buyers will want, including heated front seats, power heated mirrors, power sliding doors, an alarm and a garage door opener, while the SEL brings a host of desirable features such as a power sunroof, power tailgate, heated front and second-row seats, and rear side-window sunshades. At the top of the range, a Premium package completely loads the Routan with features, including HID headlamps, fog lamps, remote start, rear parking assist, an optional rear entertainment system, a 506-watt sound system with CD/DVD changer and a 115-volt power outlet. A towing package is standard on SEL and Premium models.

Top options include a touch-screen navigation system, which includes a 30-gigabyte hard drive and music storage and a rear DVD entertainment system with wireless headphones.

Anti-lock braking, Electronic Stabilization, front active head restraints and a bevy of front and side airbags are standard across the Routan range.

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.

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.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
