2013 Dodge Journey SE 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


We bought the Dodge Journey because it was a great value, it was big enough for our family of six and it got better gas mileage than a mini van. The seats are very versatile, but with all seats up, the car's blind spot doubles. The rear-most seats combined with the middle seat, block more than half of the rear window and all of the side windows. And the middle seats are difficult to return to an upright position when someone has to get out from the back. The stow bins are so shallow and small that they are practically worthless. The car seats are not the most comfortable, mainly because the headrests are too far forward.

Best Features

How easily the car seats are flipped down for more storage. The middle and rear seats are divided into four sections. Gas mileage is great. The viewing screen which can show speed or gas mileage is nice and big. The radio is very easy to use and has many pre-set buttons.

Worst Features

When the middle seats are pushed forward to allow people in the back to get out, they are very difficult to return to an upright position. It is very difficult to see the traffic behind you and extra care should be taken before changing lanes or backing out. I almost need to open the window and stick my head out of it to back out of a parking spot to avoid running into cars. The car seats headrests are too far forward for comfort without reclining the seat more than I generally like. The brakes are *extremely* grabby and difficult to modulate. My kids have been complaining more of problems with car sickness since buying this vehicle.
