Q: What are some of the major repairs that have been done on this vehicle and do all repairs have to be done by a specific mechanic?

asked by on

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.
