It's a VW thing
Let's get one thing off our chests right away: VW's Routan minivan was not engineered in Germany. Instead, it is a mildly refinished version of the Dodge Caravan and Chrysler Town and Country twins. We guess that makes these vans triplets, which goes along with Volkswagen's current marketing scheme, starring Brooke Shields. Obviously, it's a farce, but it sure is an odd one. Shields reports that people in America are purposely getting pregnant so that they can enjoy the "German engineering" of the new minivan. In fact, "Some 10,000 babies are born each day just for German engineering," according to Shields, who reportedly made the statistic up on the spot. Seriously, VW says that it's the most important story of our time. Ever.
This seems like a very odd way to sell minivans, and seemingly to people who don't really need them. There is nothing wrong with driving a minivan if you need one, otherwise it seems a bit wasteful to use a people mover for reasons other than moving people or their stuff. Anyway, if you need a minivan, buy one. If not... don't have kids. Or something like that.
Lol, you have a point!It's a great commercial - it got you to take notice and we're talking about it now!
But Chrysler invented the minivan. My brother used to have one, good car.Ironic since VW invented the minibus.
Please change the title of the thread, lol!:nana2::nana2:
It's smart though, they don't have to spend money on building their own car and I'm sure Chrysler is probably giving a good deal right now, lol
