The article says:
"Routan boom? Ironically, Volkswagen’s Routan minivan posted its best-ever sales month, despite the fact that Chrysler has not built a van for Volkswagen since last year. The Routan was actually VW’s second-best seller last month, selling 2,606 units (for a total of 4,801 sold all year). Given that it has been nine months since VW spokeswoman Brooke Shields suggested couples “get busy,” we wonder if the controversial ads paid off for the automaker?"

Has the Routan been cancelled? Or did they suspend building it for initial lack of sales? It definitely is a LOT better looking than the horrid Dodge Caravan which looks like a third-world delivery van from the 1980s.

The article also states:
"Chevy’s Traverse crossover sold a reasonable 8,2004 (sic) units,..." That would be 984,048 units at that sales level over 12 months :naughty: Yeah Baby! :wtf:

913 Hummers sold nationwide in April. :rofl:
