The interior was interesting on first glance, like a space shuttle of sorts, with odd buttons and cool features. I had high expectations for this car, upon further inspection it was your average, cheap, plastic dodge. The display was cool, however it lacked common sense. It was hard to navigate through the options, and had a very messy set up. As for the drivetrain, It was absolutely gutless, it had weak acceleration and the transmission kept making odd noises. This car had only 500 miles on it. The traction controll serves no purpose, as it was near impossible to lose traction in the first place. The sound system was by far the highlight of this car, great bass and very clear for a stock system. Needless to say, I will never own one. This car is ideal for moms who like being late to soccer practice.
Front seats stiff and not very comfortable, A-pillar blocks a lot of side view traffic. Large blind spots, mirrors not big enough, Rear seat headrests block view from rear window. Car tends to pull in one direction , doesn't seem to steer straight. Transmission is poor, takes for ever for the V6 to get up to highway speeds. Engine deserves something better than the current transmission. Cheap looking plastics inside, they crack or break. Windows seem to have a lot of noise at highway speeds. Could use better tires and better suspension too. I have had 5 of these as company vehicles since 2009. Overall design is OK but can't understand why Fiat can't fix these same old issues.
2015 Dodge Journey Crossroad 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
I bought my Dodge Journey Crossroads brand new in April 2015, I was so disappointed that it did not come with navigation or DVD player but did come with a big 8" screen...for what if you can`t watch a movie or follow navigation ?? The radio is something cheap and not a Bose. I would have also liked to have seen it come with a sunroof, this car offers nothing really for a $35,000 price tag !!!! NO WOW factor at all. I did buy the 4 cyl model which was a Big mistake as it has NO power and takes forever and a ton of gas to get up to speed. I`m waiting for the time when I can trade this SUV in as I will do it with a Smile on my face as I will Never buy another one again !!!!!!!
Diappointed gear whine/whistle noise at 65-70 mph. Like an old schoolbus. Have driven rentals before without this noise. Maybe just the late 2015's? Switched supplier? Would have otherwise been great car. Update: got a case number from Chrysler, turns out it was bad transfer gears which they replaced under warranty. Sooo much better. Thank you All Star Dodge. I should have bought it from your instead of Royal Gate.
I love this car. I am a life long GM guy and this puts the Chevy Equinox to shame. The car size is just right, not too big, not too small. This car is fantastic in the Winter. I love the auto heated seats and steering wheel, also the awd. The seats are very comfortable, the radio nav screen is nice and big. The rear air and heat are awsome along with the 3rd row. The 1 big thing it needs is daytime running lites for extra safety.
