Wickstrom Ford is a great place to buy a vehicle from. Kelsey was very helpful and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend buying a vehicle from Wickstrom Ford.
Pros and cons

I’m currently on year 7 with my Journey (3.5, SXT, AWD) and have been very satisfied with my purchase. (Bought new) pros: LOVE the service dept @ my dealership, good towing capacity, gas mileage is on point, interior hiding compartments. I will never own another vehicle without heated seats and a remote start!! Also, performance in the snow is amazing. I have a tow hitch and roof racks for more versatility. Cons: blind spots galore, no full size spare tire, cold weather causes her to be ’sensitive’, nowhere to put things within reach (purse, phone, etc)
The service dept. couldn't have been better. They performed the service of placing assist steps to our 2018 Enclave. The price was very competitive to other dealerships; even better! Unfortunately, the assist steps are still too high for my wife to properly enter the vehicle. (She is 4'10".) Wish something else could be done for her...
Most reliable car I have ever owned

Excellent! Best new car I ever ownef. Will never buy a foreign car again. Noone should ever buy a foreign auto again. Not a single problem with it in six years other than normal maintenance stuff like battery needs replaced, brakes needing replaced, etc.
As usual, we receive good customer service from everyone we come in contact with at this dealership. Our service advisor is patient and thorough with great communication skills.
Critics most hated SUV
by KB from Southern California

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.
Always greatest buying experience!!! I always feel like I am a family. Mario and Narcis helped me every time! They are the reason I will always buy VW !!! If you need great price, great service and the best buying experince Autobarn Evanston is the way to go! Thank you so much Mario and Narcis!!!
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.
everyone is always friendly and helpful. They take the time to tell you about your service and check in with you the car is ready to go.

This vehicle has everything you want! It comes with heated seats, remote start, and is very spacious! Its my first SUV type of vehicle and I love how it drives! if you are looking for more room for the kiddos or in general I would get this vehicle!
Tried to get info on a car online. I never heard back from them from making an inquiry online. Ended up calling after a few days to get my question answered.
Love my Dodge Journey Crossroad
by Gmd74 from Bowie tx
December 31, 2018
This auto is very stylish and sporty. Does have 3rd row seating. Includes many features that I love such as push button start, hands free talk, Bluetooth, rear climate control, front wheel drive. I am 100 percent happy with my purchase!
Pam & I purchased a beautiful convertible the same day we looked at it. Was also at an affordable price for any buyer and a quality car. Many thanks to Perry and Terry for an enjoyable purchasing experience with sincere interest in my wife and I and the process - made it quick, easy, and uncomplicated. Perry far exceeded our expectations. Thoroughly enjoy the car and Compton will be our 1st stop for any future car needs.

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.
Felt welcome as I entered the door. Staff was available and when I asked for the sales person that I had been communicating with, salesperson was waiting.
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.
Had terrific service. My repair was impeccable. It was done in the time and cost estimated. And, I was shown more about Blue tooth and navigation system by the owner of the dealership.
Fun to Drive and Reliable
by Maddie27 from Lansing, MI

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.
I have been dealing with this company for over 22 years and am very appreciative of the respect and service offered. I would recommend Palmen any time!
