I am disappointed in the lack of storage space in the front seats. The paint scratches easily. Future designs should include a place to put a box of tissue and other necessities. The glove compartment is too small. The car is very comfortable and I really like it other than storage and paint.
This is my 4th Grand Caravan over 30 years
by Brian from Thornhill

I use it primarily as a people mover for shuttling people around. The basic vehicle has performed pretty well. Beyond the normal maintenance, we've had to replace the rear a/c unit as it developed leaks. Also, the Uconnect system has given us headaches as it corrupts the phone directory downloaded from my phone, and Chrysler wants to charge a very unreasonable amount to replace it, even under warranty. This van has shown a little more rusting than my previous owned caravan, especially around the windshield .
Noah came through with our selling deal. He coordinated some service work promised in my deal of my used vehicle purchase. Service dept needs some better human interaction. (mostly in driving up to the doors). Today's keys are a pain. Dealerships should supply 2 sets of keys. Putting a car up for sale should be looked at closer by the techs. My idling issue had to be dealt with after purchase. A bit inconvenient, but Noah gave us a loaner.
Feels like I’m driving in an armored vehicle

The car is comfortable and so roomy- lots of bells and whistles but the most important thing is that I feel safe in it. This is not a car that’s going to get pushed by the wind! The Hemi purrs like a sexy kitten and responds to the slightest touch of the pedal- best car I have ever owned!
Our sales person, Noah, was very personable. We had some concerns about the vehicle that were properly and logically taken care of. Overall, it was a great process. I would highly recommend this dealership.
fastest car I've ever owned

This car will do what it is advertised to do...smoke tires and eat up mustangs and cameros and it gets 24-25 mpg on the highway! Fun to drive!
In the last 3 months my wife and I both have bought our cars from Athens Dodge with the assistance of Makayla! We could not be happier. We they took time with us, answered all questions and got us both into new cars when other dealerships had jerked us around and ultimately said no. If you in the market for a new car we definitely recommend you come out to Athens Dodge and see Makayla!!

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
Trevor Cavanaugh was amazing to work with during my car buying experience.i went in looking at something just to have an SUV.Came out with what I really want the jeep grand Cherokee and I love it. Trevor was awesome. And so was Daiquiri the finance guy
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!
We have purchased two Jeeps from Athens Chrysler Dodge Jeep in the three years. The sales staff was knowledgeable and efficient. We would definitely recommend this dealership.
Better mileage, roomier than expected
by Any evidence for that claim? from Burlington, Vermont
December 31, 2018
So far, this minivan has exceeded my expectations. Better mileage than I expected- 23 mpg- those are not highway miles. A 4 x 8 sheet of plywood fits in the back easily with the seats stowed. My Mountain bike fits easily standing up.
I have purchased several vehicles over the years. This was by far the easiest experience I ever had. Makayla had everything ready to go. She communicated me every step of the way. It was worth the 5 hour drive to get my new Ram 2500.
Love this car!
by Larea from Houston, TX

This car is beautiful and has all the power I need (I have the V-8). This car is so much fun to drive! It is a muscle car that looks like a luxury sedan on the inside with all the extras like heated leather seats, heated steering wheel, and the 8.4 inch screen along with a large trunk so that it is a great trip car too. Every time I get into this car I can't believe it's mine. I would have to spend about twice what this car cost me to get anything that would even be comparable. If you are thinking about getting a Challenger go for it!
As a student in Athens, with parents that live two hours away, I was SO stressed when my car broke down. We were worried that trading in my car and finding a new one would be a long, difficult process. Brent Kleen proved otherwise! He worked with Makayla Martinez to communicate between my parents and the bank, while managing to keep me in the loop. They took on the time-consuming process with ease???sending papers back and forth overnight, bringing a car in from Atlanta within a day and most importantly, taking the stress off of my parents and I. Brent got me in a reliable, well-priced car that I LOVE within a few days!!! My parents and I are SO thankful for the stellar service and caring personnel of Athens DCJ!
Hands down GREAT vehicle
by Erica from North Freedom, WI
January 10, 2019
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.
We truly enjoyed working with Trevor and the team at Athens DCJ. Trevor did an amazing job at finding us what we were looking for. He had the vehicles we were interested in ready and waiting for us when we arrived. They also did good with our trade in. We will definitely be dealing with them again!
Liked this car so much we purchased a duplicate!
by carmstan from Bondurant, IA
December 17, 2018
This car has met all of our needs. We have been so pleased that when it came time to replace it we searched for a duplicate but couple of years newer. Hope to have same experience with the newer car!
Mileage has been great (30 hwy) and reliability has been good. The car is comfortable / fun to drive and carries 4 people in comfort.
I've had the car for a week and so far am loving it. I love the way it looks and it drives - no sharp/jarring brakes or gas. Plenty of power when I need it, love the technology. The bluetooth phone pairing is really easy to set up and the audio quality is great - better than talking on the phone directly. It does a great job understanding regular speech the first time and I've not yet had to repeat a command, very intuitive. It has USB ports and regular chargers, Android Auto/Uconnect makes it easy to use all of your phone's familiar apps. I also like how you sit up a bit higher than most cars, helps with visibility. The one thing I wish it had was blind-spot monitoring. That would be helpful but overall for the price I can't complain.
So there I was on the phone with a dealer telling me it would be 3 wks to get this recall issue fixed on my 2018 Charger. When I decided to look for another dealer I found Banks Crossing and gave them a call. When I spoke with John on the phone he said he could get me taken care of in just a few days! My experience today was awsome with John and JB. Not ONLY did they get me in sooner but in and out in less than an hour. Thanks for stepping above and beyond to make sure the customer is taken care of! I will surely be back and recommend family and friends here!
Perfect family vehicle

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!!!
Was looking to replace my Toyota and get into a full size truck, looked within 300 miles. Was very impressed with how quick and polite Josh was with returning my emails. He fought hard to get a deal done and we did. It was a great purchasing experience!
I love this vehicle. It fits my big family.

Charles Maxwell was very helpfull in finding me the suv that i would need to help with my family so the we had the space we needed and the comfortably for us. He is a very wonderful man and we will be looking for him again when we need a new or to trade in.
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.
Let just say... Excellent! Bobby Hill is always accessible and treats you like Family. Pierce Nelms is a Brother that has your back. I had a rental situation while a repair was being completed at the return of the rental location time was an issue, Pierce resecued me, returned me to my vehicle so I kept my schedule. That my friend is more than service that is a Brother who has your back. Scott Maddox and his service team goes beyond service. From basic service to a major repair they find an opportunity to learn not put a bandaid on it and move on. I'm proud that Commerce Chrysler Dodge Jeep is my hometown Dealer and Friend.
will own another one when this one gets tired.
by Rodney from JACKSONVILLE
December 13, 2018
Have owned this truck 11 years, being the best one I have own, replaced only the parts that where out over time and miles. Have over 195500 miles on it now and still runs like new, with the 4.7 engine.
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!
Looking for a very particular truck. Bob Benson was the only dealer of 6 I talked to willing to go get it at the price we agreed to. Picking up my new F250 Friday. Awesome job - Thank You Bob and staff!!
