When looking for a minivan I had 3 choices. I chose the Routan for two reasons. The main reason was the styling differences, but I also liked the idea of having one that was not as common as the Chrysler and Dodge. I am very happy with the minivan, but after 3 months I am beginning to regret not getting one of the other two. There have been two times I could have used the stow and go seats, which I do not have. I will hate to see the Routan discontinued but if it happens it happens.
