-ROUTAN- Handles great, very quiet great stereo and dvdcdystem November 22, 2017 Comfortline
Overall Score
I love this van. I have had 4 Caravans and they don't come close to the comfort, styling and ride. The VW suspension makes it a pleasure to drive, sorry....fun fir a van. Styling us way better than Caravan or Town and Country. I drove from Toronto to Frederiction and only filled up twice at $70/ tank. $140 for the entire trip. The 4 ltr engine runs at lower rpm's so engine doesn't have to work as hard. Can't say the same for city driving though. I had stow n go seats and for long trips they are really uncomfortable as the padding on the cushions are so thin. Routan does not have second row stow and go but man are the seats comfy. Much more cushion so much better for road trips. It's too bad they stopped making these as I am looking to buy a new van even though mine still runs great.

Manufacturer Recall Number:
69M5
Units Affected:
265
Notification Type:
Safety Mfr
On certain vehicles, a defect in the Occupant Restraint Control (ORC) system could result in inadvertent airbag / seatbelt pretensioner deployment, or prevent airbags / seatbelt pretensioners from deploying when warranted. Unintended airbag / seatbelt pretensioner deployment, in a non-warranted (non-impact) situation, could startle the driver, and could result in a vehicle crash causing injury and/or property damage. Furthermore, failure of the airbags / seatbelt pretensioners to deploy in a crash when warranted could increase the risk of injury to vehicle occupants. Correction: Dealers will replace the Occupant Restraint Control (ORC) module.

Manufacturer Recall Number:

Units Affected:
1,891
Notification Type:
Safety Mfr
On certain vehicles, the Wireless Ignition Node (a.k.a ignition switch) may allow the ignition key to inadvertently move from the ON position to the accessory (ACC) position while driving, causing the engine to shut off. This would result in a loss of motive power, power steering and power brakes, and would disable the airbags as well as other supplemental restraint systems (SRS). Increased steering and braking effort and a loss of motive power could increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property. Loss of airbag / SRS function in a crash that warrants airbag deployment and/or other supplemental restraint system function could increase the risk of injury to vehicle occupants. Correction: Dealers will inspect the WIN module and install a secondary detent system if required. Note: This recall is an expansion of recall 2011095.

The owner's manual for certain vehicles was printed without the CMVSS 208 required information explaining that no objects should be placed over or near the airbag on the instrument panel, because any such objects could cause harm if the vehicle is involved in a crash severe enough to cause the airbag to inflate. Correction: Owners will be provided with an owner's manual insert containing the required airbag information.
