Because of personal circumstances I was unable to physically travel to the dealership. They were reasonably priced, professional and very accomodating. I look forward to meeting Betsy in person when I'm in the Hudson area.
A few issues
by NotaBigJourneyFan from Little Rock, AR

Bought it with just 7 miles on it. Battery is hard to get to, you have to go through the splash guard after removing the tire. Headlights get moisture in them often, bulbs are somewhat difficult to get to. Appears to have a heater core leak already, not sure what kind of coolent it's using but it's expensive. Uses a new freon in the A/C that's not available yet. Foglights are not standard. Front license plate holder is not standard except in states that require them by law. Glove box is too small inside.
Does have an AT transmission and 4 wheel disc brakes. MPGs are nothing to write home about, averages 20.6 with 90% highway driving.
I saw my dream vehicle parked out front in the lot and I had to check it out.. I got a very fair deal on my trade-in. I would most definitely purchase another vehicle at Hudson Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram.. Joe and Mackenzie made my purchasing experience very smooth..
1st ever brand new vehicle of any kind in my life!

I didn't know what to expect because I wasn't expecting to drive it off the lot. It exceeded all my expectations and I have received nothing but compliments in addition to congratulations on my 1st ever NEW vehicle...
I honestly thought they were really fair and easy to work with. They worked with my bank and didn't pressure me at all to do anything. I would recommend you call or go in and talk to them. I'm in a reliable vehicle when I thought I'd be stuck in something I hate so I'm really grateful.

I've had it 3 winters .front wheel drive gets around excellent.other then brakes and tires I had to do the alternator. Thats not bad considering all that can go wrong
No pressure sales, they listened to our wants and needs. Vehicle was ready as promised, a full tank of gas is a nice extra value.
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.
Forest Lake Chrysler has far and away the best dealership I have been to. From the moment we walked it they moved with urgency and purpose. As busy parents with two kids we did not have much time. They quickly identified a car that matched our needs and even did a dealer trade to get us the exact options within one day. I could not have asked for any more from them.

Very comfortable, sporty,roomy and smooth driving. I would recommend this car to anyone looking for a bigger car. I am very pleased to own this car
We had some credit issues and came to this dealership as they were recommended to help people with credit issues. We found a car and filled out our paper work and waited 24 hours for our approval. After submitting extra paperwork we were still waiting only to find out that the financing guy had left for the day and we were going to have to wait until the third day to finalize our purchase, We were ready to walk away and go somewhere else when they finally found someone to finish our paperwork and deliver or car. I felt that we were treated very poorly and the sales person almost lost a sale due to the poor performance of the financing person. I would question myself if I would ever return there if I was in the market for another car.
I love staying in the Dodge Family!

I’ve leased it for 2 years in 2016, and am leasing another one for another 2 Years. I Love the Journeys and Dodge cars period!
Kevin our salesman was most informative, friendly,kind, courteous, and over the top helpful. You have a great employee there make sure you keep him as he an Exceptional asset to your company. We really liked how he showed us how everything works in my new truck and explaining about the garage opener. He needs to be employee of the month/year for his hard work he puts toward your company. Thank you again Kevin and Flag for making us a customer who will come back again 😉
Listen to the people who own a Journey!!!
by Lancem46 from Sanger TX

The Journey exceeds all our family needs!! Plenty of room up front and the 2nd row. 3rd row suited for kids. Very good ride and love the steering! It turns like a small suv but has the room and comfort of a larger suv. The engine is plenty peppy enough for me. Had it fully loaded with people over the Christmas holidays to go look at lights. Had no trouble accelerating to get on the the highway or keeping up with traffic. The so-called experts are so far off!!! Absolutely love it!!!
It was a great experience working with Kevin. The vehicle was pulled up and detailed. No issues. Fast through the process and great to work with. The kids lounge was a great idea and kept my kids busy.

I have only had it for a few days, and love it. It rides very nice, and no road noise. I do wish it had hands free for my phone.
Kevin Carlson did an amazing job helping my family leave with a nice safe car! He made sure he took care of us. It was hard to get there since we are 45 min away. He was patient and took care of us! He made it a very easy and fun purchase! I would recoommend him to all my family and friends for sure. He is great at his job, he was very personal and less sales pitchy!!!
Great family car
by JJcameron from Berea, KY

This car has great qualities. We have 4 children and everyone is able to fit comfortably. The only thing that I do not like is where the cup holders are placed in the front. I feel that this could have been designed better. The cup holders should be up closer to the drivers hand so that it is not a stretch to reach. Other that this it is a wonderful car!
Dealer made the process simple and easy. Overall great used car dealer.They also don’t pressure you into buying a car from them.overall great local business.
Love this car

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.
We worked with Colton Smith and Kevin Honeycutt to drive away in our new (to us) Ford Flex. The experience was wonderful and they took care of us. We drove from Indiana because this was the only location with our desired vehicle in our desired color and much more!
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.
Sent an email inquiring about a vehicle and got a response. Responded to dealers email asking about hours of the business to possibly schedule a test drive and received no response. Recommend calling or just stopping by to look at a vehicle.
Perfect family vehicle
by Jacc86 from Lady Lake, FL

Great interior size with third row seat option, lots of compartments, great on gas, many options and I got the AWD version which handles like a dream in all weather!!!
This vehicle meets mine and my families needs! Has the 3rd row seating what we definitely wanted. Has touch screen. My favorite part about the vehicle is that everyone/passenger can control their own climax from heating to air conditioning! It’s super comfortable and roomy. It definitely makes me feel safe while driving!
There is Always great service and found to have a wonderful learning experience about my Volkswagen each time I visit. I find Extremely knowledgable people at Schmelz Countryside Volkswagen. Great Dealership!
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.
They made the buying process easy and helped with a great finance guy even on a holiday weekend. Really top notch guys, honest and fair. So much better then those big dealerships with pushy people. Would buy here again in a heartbeat.
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!
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.
