This is the fourth vehicle I've leased and the best experience I've had. Kendahl was great to work with! He really knows his stuff and doesn't try to give you the runaround. He stayed in contact with me throughout the whole process and had everything ready to go quickly. I would highly recommend working with Kendahl!
Most reliable car I have owned

Drives smooth. Seats are very comfortable. Bluetooth is excellent. Does very good in snow. Extra storage compartments are handy. Overall very happy with purchasing my 2014 Dodge Journey
Hi, March 16,2018 my car was in a accident . This was a year to the day that I had purchased it from Car Rite in Grand Ledge MI. I PRAYED for a car then. It was a 2013 Dodge Dart.
Noone was hurt in the accident no ticket was given. My folks drove one hour to come pick me up. I used a 2003 vehicle for a back up car that needed a rim after I found out the tire went flat in 15 min..
The car shop had to place a order for the rim.
Then the car would not start.
My folks drove me to work.
I called CarRite and spoke with them about the accident.
Yesterday, Tyler Melvin a employee of CARite, drove to pick me up so that I would be able to purchase a car.
Car has 2k mile the price of the car was $13,000. Jonathan Keblesh processed my paper work. I met the owner as well.
They treated me Right and with respect.
They helped me when I needed it.
That is why I went back. WHAT A BLESSING Thank you everyone thats been praying for me.
Just wanted to share sorry so lengthy .
Love how the vechile drives!

Comfortable interior and athletic power train.

I currently have 65000 miles on my 2014 Dodge Journey. When I initially test drove the vehicle it had a squeaky front shock that still to this day will squeak at low doped bumps. Dealer initially said if it would be a safety issue they would fix it, but it has been fine this whole time. And yes I have had 4 different dealerships inspect it over the years. The only mechanical problem I had was when the oil pressure sensor went out. It was fixed under warranty at 33000 miles. I have the 3.6l v6 and and. I get 23 highway with cruise set at 80 mph. City driving is at 17. Overall average 21mpg per tank with combo city highway driving. And system works well, but if it experiences excessive slip it disengaged and only the passenger front wheel will give traction. Light will come on stated to service and system. But all you need to do is stop, urn off car and wait 30 seconds for compute to reset and it becomes active once again. Interior is comfortable, second row leg room is a little tight if your 6 foot or taller. 3rd row is for 12 and under, definitely not for anyone over 5 foot tall. Hoping to get 200000 miles out of it. Will write another review at 100000 miles.
This is the 3rd Jeep I have bought from Champion and they are the best. After being hit by a lady that ran a red light and rolled my Jeep Patriot that I walked away without a scratch the sales staff and finance dept went above and beyond and helped me find my replacement. Great Job too all the staff
Great family vehicle

Great gas mileage, room for everyone and has the touch radio, mp3 hookups and Bluetooth all the luxuries of a sport vehicle. Has store in floor boards for middle row, which is very handy for kids.
I went into Champion to buy a new Jeep. While I am always on guard when I car shop, this time it was a completely different experience. I was greeted by Loren and from the start, was at ease with him. He told me that it was important that we found the right car and had fun doing that. He was right, it was fun and I did find the car I wanted. Everybody made sure that I was taken care of and I felt that they really appreciated me purchasing my car from them. Thank you Loren for a great experience, Todd and Eric. I will be back again.
Hands down GREAT vehicle
by Erica from North Freedom, WI

This Journey has so many features we still have not figured them all out. Never thought we needed a vehicle that is this loaded but may never buy another vehicle besides the Dodge Journey. Handles great in the snow, very reliable and there is something in it for all 4 of our kids aged 3-18.
My wife and I went into Champion Chrysler Jeep to look at and gather information about the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Loren was the salesperson that waited on us and we were so fortunate. He didn't act like a salesperson but more of a friend who wanted to help us make an informed decision. It really helped when he told us that he not only owned a Grand Cherokee but it was his third one. We drove the Grand Cherokee and what really sold us was that he found a model that suited us. The model we came into see, that we thought was the right one, wasn't what we bought. Loren showed us a model that saved us several thousand dollars and still had the equipment we needed. That is what we call service and looking out for us. Thank you, Loren, for making this the most enjoyable experience ever! To the Champion management, you have a gem of a salesperson.
Never owned a Dodge until I bought this Journey.

Have really been pleasantly surprised with the way the Crossroad performs, rides and handles. The 3.6L engine is very responsive and provides plenty power. The only downsides are poor gas mileage and the manual rear hatch.
Very happy with the service that I received very honest about the condition of the car and the process was really easy I love my car so far and I definitely recommend this dealership to anyone that I know
Love this car
by Lisa M from Cutler, IL
December 26, 2018
I have looked at SUVs alot and I have always loved the look of Dodge Journeys. I fell in love with it as soon as I drove it. It drives really smooth and alot of room it. The only thing is there is not alot of room behind the 3rd row seats if they are up.
Dar and his manager in used car sales were a pleasure to work with. All the people at Sawyer's were friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend them.
Critics most hated SUV
by KB from Southern California
December 28, 2018
This is a great vehicle for the price. It rides and handles just fine. It comes with many standard features that would cost extra with other SUV’s.
You can buy a loaded Journey for around $29,000. You would have to spend thousands more to get a fully loaded SUV from any other manufacturer.
So what if it is an old design. ( The VW Beetle was around for 30 plus years and sold like hot cakes.)
It looks like an SUV should and is super smooth on the rough roads of California.
The automotive critics hate this SUV for reasons I can’t figure out. Read the critics reviews and then drive one. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this SUV. If you buy a Journey and are worried about reliability, purchase an extended warranty. You probably won’t need to use it though.
If you are in need of a new or used SUV and don’t want to spend tons of money, then the Journey is a great choice for an SUV.
Found the vehicle I wanted online but it was at a small dealer and was concerned. I had to travel 1 hour and it was more than worth it. The sales person was very helpful describing the vehicle on the phone and when I got there it was as he said. Not pushy very friendly truly making this a win win deal. I love my truck!!
First purchase in several years
by Just Me from Roseville MI
December 30, 2018
We were in the market for a Journey or a Liberty so this met our needs. It was actually the first car we test drive. Fell in love with it.
I was in the market to buy a used car after I had been in an accident and totalled mine. I found a great deal on a black Ford Escape. The people at ok made sure that I was getting what I wanted. When it took over a week to close on the loan they continued to keep me updated on my vehicle of interest. I drove away with exactly what I wanted.
Great car for my family

This car has been great it is very comfortable and easy to drive. My wife and kids love it. Would love to buy a brand new one in a couple of years.
Hi there, I bought a 2010 Ford f-150 xtr xlt, a few months back. To say the least I am running an expanding business and need another truck. The one I bought here from a sales rep. Wilson was excellent! I am looking at another same make o\and model from my experience.
Good vehicle for the price
by Untitled from Missouri
October 22, 2018
The vehicle has performed fantastic since our purchase. The price for this vehicle is was well below the price of a new car and in comparison it is nearly brand new. My only complaints are that it did not come with a license plate frame for the front of the vehicle which is illegal in the state that I live in. This should have been provided by the dealer. Also the radio jumps up to high volume when the car is first started even after turning off the accelerator controlled volume function. Pain in the arse cause it scares our little one every time we start the car. Other than that this car appears to be a good buy on our part.
I leased a new Buick LaCrosse with Dave Kern as my salesman! It was a wonderful experience during the buying process! I also have to say - I was in an auto accident about 2 months after I brought my new car home and Dave made sure to help take care of me! He helped with getting my car to the auto body as well as any questions / concerns that I had! I would highly recommend Sundance and Dave! Thank you for the all around care!!
This is one of the best cars I have owned.

I was looking for a specific vehicle and Tony did not have it in stock a couple other dealers told me the would call me if they ever got one in. Tony searched the country and bought me my vehicle from over 1000 miles away and had me exactly what I wanted. I could not believe he would do that he could do that and how fast he made it happen!
Fun to Drive and Reliable
by Maddie27 from Lansing, MI
January 10, 2019
Very practical for my lifestyle (ie. dogs, camping, biking), but also comfortable and fun to drive. The acceleration is great and interior features are great. Built in coolers in the back seat make it ideal for football tailgating.
We are from Grand Rapids, and found the truck we wanted at Red Cedar Auto.
I called before we went down, and worked with Jamie through the process. The complete process went well, including using a credit union through them to finance truck. She did a awesome job to make this a good deal, thanks Jim
