Dont buy this car
By samaro on
2011 Dodge Journey Mainstreet 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
Since I purchased this vehicle in September of 2011 Iíve had problems from the radio not working, power outlets not working, bad cylinder heads, bad gas tank and fuel pump. According to the technician at the dealer the Journey has a problem with the cylinder going bed within the first year.
The fuel pump had to be replaced twice. The first time they replace it I broke down in the middle of the freeway 3 days later with my family in the vehicle. The breaks and steering wheel locked up and the vehicle shutoff. I was a sitting duck waiting to be hit be oncoming vehicle s. I had the vehicle towed back to the dealer and 3 days later Iím told that the vehicle is fixed but I need to replace the b
I have the same car. Perhaps you got one from a "bad batch" and I'm so sorry to hear all you've gone through. What a bummer! I too have had some trouble, but not so much. I've never had a mechanical 'under the hood' sort of problem, but my car has had a few electrical issues. Ends up, after much checking from some guys who couldn't figure out why my radio wouldn't turn on, I found a fuse box that was WELL hidden either under my passenger side or in the glove box (can't remember- and my car, I bought used with no manual) but it was just a loose fuse!! I was so happy it was a free repair. My brakes have needed service, but only because my husband speeds up to stop signs and slams on the brakes.. lol My biggest reason I'd recommend no one buy this car, though it is the nicest most comfy car I've ever owned is.... the visibility for left lane changes, require me to really turn and look over my left shoulder, which limits my front view, endangering me. I have often been honked at as I almost hit people. The windows came too tinted, the mirrors aren't set to see people driving beside me, and the frame of the car is set to block view while changing lanes. I feel very unsafe, and though I've enjoyed my car and try to change lanes very gradually in case there is a car I cannot see, giving them time to honk at me, I don't feel its right to make visibility so hard. The back window is almost 0 visibility.
