This is my second Dodge Journey. Our first was a 2009. I love this vehicle. I knew I wanted another one when the time came to trade in the old one. I have only had it for a few days but it has been tested in heavy snow in Michigan. The first Journey had FWD and this one I decided to get AWD I'm glad a did. What a difference. It just moves right along and I feel safe and comfortable driving it. I would recommend this car to anyone that wants comfort - more bang for your buck with extras NAV, Dual heat etc.....and I can't say enough about the storage. It is our primary vehicle as I am still working. But when we go on vacation this is the car we take. Can't wait to take the new on a road trip.

The choice to purchase this vehicle was excellent!!! 2014 Dodge Journey Limited AWD w/ 3rd row seat Stylish/Comfort/Technology/Roominess/Performance/Storage Elegant Tan Leather Seating/Heated Seats & Steering Wheel/Sound and Cruise controls convenient/Extra storage in floors of passenger and cargo area. The only thing it lacked when purchased was trailer towing pkg., Got a class three with instillation & wiring $ 400.00. This vehicle out-shined Ford, Buick, GM and Chevrolet Combined Rebates and Discounts $ 8,000.00 Chevrolet/GMC/Buick could not even be driven because of recalls... Dealer couldn't allow test drv. Ford Grossly Over Priced... My Dodge Journey out performs all of them and far less money than the others. Only negative is fuel economy, but the others were the same...

Worth a Test Drive

I bought my new 2014 Dodge Journey last August. I have the stx, 2.4 liter, five passenger and front wheel drive model. I have put 5,900 miles on it so far and have had zero problems whatsoever. This was not my first choice of car as I wanted something sportier but my Dodge Journey has been more than I had hoped for in a car. It drives so very smoothly with one exception. If I drive with JUST the back windows open, the inside rattles and there is a very loud, fast continuous thumping sound. It goes away if you have only the front windows down or all four windows down. That is the ONLY fault I have found. My Journey is the best deal for a new car that I have found. The interior is incredible. Sure there are two speedometers, one digital and one regular which seems an overkill but the touch screen and sound system are fantastic. It took me some time to get used to the push button starter but even that has become nice to have. If you are looking for a new SUV or crossover, the Dodge Journey is worth a test drive.

I bought my new Journey in December of 2013 - had it less than a week before I had to take it back to the dealer because of an issue with the brakes. They took about 10 days to fix it (dropped it off on NYE). Since getting it back I haven't had an issue. I've taken it on 2 long road trips - it is comfortable and I LOVE the way it looks. It's not great on gas, but I am getting better mileage than expected. I'm averaging 24 city/27 hwy. It doesn't accelerate well when the air is running - it tends to hesitate a bit, as if asking, "are you sure you want to do that?!" but I suppose that's expected with any large 4 cylinder. Overall, I am very happy with this vehicle.

I was looking to downsize from my Mommy Van to a crossover SUV. I did a lot of research and test drove a lot of cars before deciding on the purchase of my Dodge Journey. It's a comfortable drive with plenty of zip for the amount of city driving I do. Infact it took me a few days to get used to it's ease of speed. The gas milage is great! Nice change from my old mini van gas guzzler. The best feature to me though is the massive storage in the back that converts into the two extra seats! I was able to downsize the mini van without losing the extra seating. And the seats are comfortable too!! I love this car!!

Comfort is OK. Smooth ride; pickup of speed is a little hesitant. Exterior design is beautiful. Interior design is a bit skimped on. The visors are a bit small and provide a little protection from the sun while driving. The dividing accessory box in the middle of the driver and passenger is too, too compact; just too small. The third row of seats are better left down because the head sets inhibit the rear view.
