Very reliable.

Very reliable. Great mpg and overall performance. Interior is comfortable with plenty of storage room. Love this car. I would not hesitate to buy another Journey.


2018 dodge journey no start.

My vehicle has been pretty good up until two weeks ago , September 9, 2022. I experienced a no start situation with the vehicle towed to the dealership and the dealership has no idea what’s happening or watt they report bad battery no charge etc. I’m suspecting that the PCM has a bad chip due to a recall that was performed supposedly in 2018. I don’t believe my vehicle was recalled and have not received a recall notice from Chrysler Corp. so now I’ve got a dead vehicle in the shop the dealership has no concept of what’s happening and the service writer seems to be not knowledgeable enough to research the problem.


Little Flaws

Love my Journey but have notice several with a missing antenna and also several with foggy headlights. Like moisture buildup inside the headlight assemblies. Bluetooth doesn't always hook up. Not the easiest on gas.


Journey needs help

Motor lacks pick up/passing power. Acceleration is slow at best! As for reliability, the passenger’s light does not work right, there is a slight sputter and a slight rattle in the front end!


bargain for the price

3 row seating, v-6, 6 speed automatic, keyless entry, pb start averaging 23 mpg, comfortable on long trips all for less than $25K out the door


great that it has 3 rows of seats

So far pleased with the vehicle . Wish it had running boards , front and second row grab handles , and hands free opening and closing of hatch


transmission problem!!!!!!! so bad

this suv has transmission problem and defroster not working toooo many problems!!! do not buy this car is my experience i take the car 6 times to dealer to fix they said the car is good just have 6500 miles


Best for 3 Grandchildren with Booster seats

It has adequate room for 3 booster seats and great for getting groceries in and out .No need to bend over the lip to lift items in or out ! Drawbacks , no grab handles for driver or passenger , running boards would be great to have an automatic opening and closing for the rear hatch!


Very fit, well performing auto

Had a 2015 and found it super comfortable on long distance trips. No brainer to do a repeat with a newer model. Car was clean, excellent care, perfect exterior.



Would give this car 25 stars if I could. The value fir money is unlike any car I have ever purchased I got the GT trim package... it’s like luxury it feels like JEEP Overland in feel for 50% less in cost.
