I just purchased my first VW ever. It's a 09 Routan SEL w/RSE with 24000 miles. I live in Portland and purchased it in Seattle. As I was driving it home the Radio/Nav unit restarted on me while Scanning for FM stations. I was wondering should I take it to the dealer to get it looked at, is it something i did? It did it twice on my way home.
Another question I have is, there is a amber icon (3 cars) on the top right of the head unit. I looked through the manual and could not find what it means. Can anyone help me on this? Here's a picture of it: https://www.dropbox.com/s/26sfhj6vzc...-04-29-059.jpg My guess is traffic information. But when I press it nothing happens.
As I was driving home I found out where the previous owner lived by pressing the Nav Home Destination option. It was Chicago, IL! As soon as I got to Portland, I looked underneath the car and found it has some rust on the exhaust system and other places. Should I be worried? Should I get it treated?
Last issue is there was some hidden stains on the interior, Looks like slurpee stains. It was only revealed only when I stowed the 3rd row seats. I was wondering what's the best way to try to take it out?
Other than those issues, I'm pretty satisfied with my purchase. I love the look! The van was smooth and shifted nice. I got about 24mpg for a 200 mile trip. Is the mpg indicator accurate? I reset it on the freeway and it started at 13mpg then slowly climbed to 24. I was going about 70mph for the entire trip.
Any help is greatly appreciated,
