VW's mistake

brooke shieldsVW made a mistake. They are trying to sell a Chrysler as a VW. It's not. The vehicle in question? The Routan.

See this video to view a very lame Brooke Shields trying to sell you the minivan. It's a good example of bad social media*. The Routan is a Chrysler Town & Country.

Jamie Kitman, a writer for Automobile magazine states it is an, "epic stinker of a brainstorm..."

Avoid at all costs. If you gotta have one, just buy the Chrylser for $1,300 less. (Just buy a used Honda Odyssey instead.)

My prediction? They will sell 5.

I didn't realize that Chrysler and VW were working together. The auto industry is so mixed up it's hard to keep track of what's going on.

Agreed - but VW overall has changed - become more elite, exclusive. It's not the "peoples" car anymore.
