The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
Families that need spaciousness and practicality should definitely look at the 2009 Chrysler Town & Country, which offers an array of useful storage and entertainment features. The 2009 Volkswagen Routan has the bonuses of Chrysler’s segment-defining minivans with a touch of German flair, but a modern-day VW Bus it’s not.
