I bought a 2009 Journey because it had everything I wanted in a vehicle.
Turned out to be the worst vehivle I've ever owned.
I bought it used in 12-2010 from my local Dodger dealership.
Within 15 months, I've had all 4 valve stems replaced, new brakes and rotors and now my transmission died today (it's stuck in 2nd).
The tires are also expensive to replace, costing around $1200 to replace all 4.
When the valve stems starting going one at a time, the Dodge dealiship initially told me it was my problem and I'd have to pay for it.
The first one went out 3 months after my purchase.
next one, 6 months, then 9 months then the last one went out at 15 months after purchase.
Not worth it!!!!
