      The name Routan is derived from the name Touran which is VW's Minivan in Europe
      I do not get why did not use that one in stead!

      Just be glad they used "TOURAN" to get the letters....
      I wouldn't want to be driving an TAPASS or a FLOG...

      Has anyone with a Routan done this? Reversed the "T" and the "R" on the back of thier Routan to read "Touran"?
      If so have any pics?

      Because the Touran is a lot smaller and the Routan is a repackaged Dodge Caravan / Chrysler Town & Country

      The European VW vans are designated by the suffix "AN". Route 66 must play well in Germany because they picked Rout-an for our vans, but it could have been worse.

      I'm gonna rearrange mine to read "ran out" because that's what I should have done when signing the paperwork for this baby.

      Yep, same here ! I do miss it a lot, but I don't miss the maintenance nightmare.
