Perfect family car

My journey has transported my husky, toddler and myself many miles now and I can honestly say it was the best purchase I've ever made. It's roomy, drives amazing and is all around a great suv for the money.


Miss lilttle Red

Great for the student who has large projects or the techie employee who needs storage compartments. Plenty of space for traveling as well. Great foe two tall and two short people



All in all it is a Decent vehicle, at the time i needed a vehicle that was reliable and within my price range but did bot want a passenger car.


brake pads wear out to fast

good family suv. good for long trips. interior design cheaply made and the brake bads wear out within 5 months.


Great car for the price

Purchased this car for my son to use at college. Been reliable so far and has nice layout inside. Lot's of storage and ample seating for 7. We just got it but are happy with the purchase so far.


My Dodge Journey

I liked the way it looked sitting on the lot. I drove it and liked the way it handled and bought it. I got it for a good price. So my Journey has began.


Perfect Car...Except...It's not.

I owned a 2009 Dodge Journey for about a year and it was a great car, no problems. But...One day we found out about an ignition problem on it, its a known problem on the 2009-2010 Journey's. Coincidentally, the same day we were told about the problem, it happened to us. The dealer refused to fix it and said "It is life threatening", we later found out that wasn't true, and they forced a 2010 Sentra onto us (horrible car). Moral of the story, don't buy a 2009/10 Dodge Journey, the repair for the ignition is around $1,000 and it's just guesswork. It doesn't actually fix it. Chrysler won't recall it for some reason though.


Dodge Journey, a very poor choice.

First let me say I've been a Mopar Man for most of my 55 years. This vehicle was a bad purchase though. I guess you get a lemon every once in a while. The vehicle is very noise when you step on the gas. For all of the noise that you hear, one would think that you were speeding. That is not the case with this vehicle. The 2.4 liter engine is severely under powered, and, like I said, very noisy. The seats are very unaccommodating. My wife and I will not drive more than 3 hours in it. Our backs hurt when we exit the vehicle. The styling is okay but is in need of a serious updating. Since owning this vehicle, we have had three major recalls to date. All three have had to do with safety equipment on the car. Overall, it has been a very bad investment. I would not recommend this vehicle.



this was the most comfortable ride I have had in a long time. I cannot wait to get a new vehicle. the test ride was a wonderful experience. The dealership and the salesmen were kind and pleasent.
