German automakers should know better. The Routan is frustrating – they could have rebadged any van made in Asia and been better off. Who knows what they were thinking. Irony must have been the goal with the profoundly dumb “smart” car. My Jetta TDI seats five, has 16 cu ft. of trunk space, can survive a collision and gets better mileage. Mercedes would be better off dumping the “smart” and bringing their magnificent and economical A class to America.
