I am looking to get a Volkswagen Routan and it seems to be in great shape! It is a 2011 and My only concern or hold back on buying it is because it is a Volkswagen. I know that it was made by Chrysler and I was told that it would not cost more on repairs like other Volkswagen. I want to make sure that If i get this mini van that I will be able to take it to any mechanic and not just the dealership to get it fixed. Does this make sense? I just don't want to buy a van that will be to much to repair if things go wrong.
My car has 112022 miles.
My car's transmission is unknown to me.
This Volkswagen is not impacted by the recent issues you've heard of in regards to the emissions control manipulation. Those were TDI's (turbo diesel) vehicles from 2009 till 2014 production; not the Routan gasoline powered van. It's a fairly good vehicle that can be serviced by any professional mobile mechanic; including our team from YourMechanic.com. Before you purchase it however, you might want to have a pre purchase inspection completed.
