2009 Dodge Journey SXT 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


I purchased a 2009 Dodge Journey SXT AWD in May 2009.
My husband had been told he would be shipping out to Afghanistan the following year and wanted me in a new AWD vehicle.
What a wrong decision that was.
New brakes at 26,000 miles, transmission leak, shuddering, which took 3-4 times to repair.
I was told #5 cylinder was missing, didn't know why.
Replaced EGR valve, had to take back in because the replacement was faulty.
Power transfer unit went out, got it fixed, under warranty, no problem.
Picked it up, transmission problems.
They said water in transmission and Chrysler won't fix.
5-6 k to do this.
What a piece of crap.
Will get rid of this a.s.a.p.

Best Features

I did like the size of the vehicle and the interior design was to my liking.

Worst Features

Water in transmission caused by water entering a vent or something like that, after driving through a puddle? What is the purpose of having AWD if it can't handle normal Michigan road conditions. Redesign transmission, please.
