    This could be really interesting - if VW can bring the fun of driving to the minivan platform, this new van could be a hot item.

    Volkswagen plans to build a van based on the Chrysler Town & Country, the paper said.

    I cant think of anything worse for VW! A VW minivan with a Town & Country platform, yeeeecccch! Makes a Saaburu look good in comparison!!

    A Chrysler priced like a premium priced VW. Sounds as ingenious as VWs priced as Audis.

    so will this new vw badged Chrysler Town & Country also have the wood-grain panelling on the side? . And given the quality of VW and Chrysler, the prospects for a reliable van don't appear to be too promising.

    ... hopefully it won't have the flimsy stow and go seating... we test drove a 2006 SXT Grand Caravan and were not impressed with the interior appearance, quality or headroom, or the ride... bought the 2006 Chevy Uplander LT... the VW could be a gitchy cool looking product, at least it will be built in the USA... I hope.

    Actually it should be a good fit...chrysler and VW have about the same lousy reliability track record...This way the VW folks will feel at home visiting the service department on a regular basis. :P

    I wonder how different they will be.

    I think that if VW doesn't make them different enough, I'll take a 9-7X over this thing.
