I Have the Babies, Now It’s Time For the German Engineering.

by Erica


Next month, I will have the pleasure of driving around town in a shiny Volkswagen Routan.

Unfortunately, I will only have it for a week. I am sure that giving it back will be very tough. There may even be tears. No, not really, I hope.

I don’t currently drive a minivan. Instead, I drive a blazer that my family of five crams into. The two car seats and booster don’t leave even an inch of extra space in the back seat. But that’s alright, I don’t mind. I have never seen myself as much of a minivan person, BUT I have a feeling that the Routan will convert me.

Next month, I will post all about my week long experience with the Volkswagen Routan. We are even planning on taking a weekend road trip to test out some of its great features like the touch screen navigation system, heatable seats, power-folding third row seats, keyless entry with remote start and rearview camera.

I hear there is a Routan boom. Parents everywhere are having children just to purchase a Volkswagen Routan. With its sleek design and wonderful features, I can see why.

For fun, you can even use the Routan BabyMaker3000, like I did. Using an image of myself and my hubby, here is our Routan Baby.
