      Just replaced the crappy Bridgestones at 37k miles with Cooper CS4 touring, very nice and stable ride, excellent in wet and a good looking tire to boot.

      New Possible Routan Owner

      And to actually answer your question, our 2010 was purchased in 2011 as a certified. Only maintain ace was the brakes, oil etc in 20k miles since.

    7. Another brake question. What can I do???

      Contact VWNA, make lots of noise and cross fingers. Just be ready to replace the pads/rotors on your own with Quality aftermarket.

      Possible purchase

      Our 2010 is at 37k miles. Only real complaint is the crappy Dodge front end (noise, harshness, etc).

      17" Wheel Specifics

      I have GFX wheels in the same size with 225s mounted. If you like a classic VW stretch look it'll be fine.

      Cross Drilled, Slotted, Cryo Treated

      Brake performance.com. On my S80 and Chevy k1500 that warps rotors immediately, their premium rotors are the bomb. They will be on the Crout as soon as I get round to it.

      Craig, most vehicle doors are designed to drain through, meaning that as water hits the glass, it goes down, through the door and out the bottom via drain holes. The water gets in there by design.
