    Thread: Routan Sales Thus Far.....

    1. 02-24-2012 10:19 AM #141
      Thanks for continuing to compile this list. I don't own a Routan, but I look at this thread periodically to see how all the VW models are selling.

      On the subject of the Routan, it's good to see that it is still selling at better than 10,000 units per year. Not super strong sales, but not bad either considering.

      I've used your Clymer manuals for 30 years. Good job. Yeah, the Routans have been trending at the rate of a 1000 per month. Makes you think that VW could sell a full size van of their own design, but can it be built at a reasonable price? Looking at the price points of the Jetta and Passat that are built in the U.S., just maybe VW could do it. Hope so, with a diesel, please.

      I agree. If VW were to build a van similar to the Routan/Grand Caravan at the Chattanooga plant, I think it would sell in sufficient volume. The new Passat has shown that it's possible to build a vehicle in the same format as the segment leaders (Accord, Camry), but still come out with a highly desirable and distinct product due to unique VW features such as DSG, TDI, and a class leading interior. It sounds like they're leaning more towards a seven seat Pilot style SUV, though.

      More in-depth and up to date on what's going on with the Routan and latest sales numbers ... it's not quite dead yet but close, my last day with my '09 was this past Saturday 12/8/2012; traded up for a '13 Touareg VR6 Sport w/navi --- too bad this 3.6L VR6 w/8 speed automatic wasn't put in the Routi -- really great engine and trans combo and am already getting 22 MPG around town and only about 180 miles driven; best of luck to all those this driving one!! :

      We purchased a 2012 Routan due to the great rebates. We previously had our 12 year old Dodge Grand Caravan which I sold outright after we bought the Routan. The old Dodge served us well for many years so I am hoping that the new Routan lives up to the old van.

      We have added to the total for VW vans sold for 2012. One more for Canada.
