Buyer beware!
By krellis98 on


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


Never buy the first year production of a vehicle.
We have learned the hard way.
We have had this vehicle at the dealership so many times for all sorts of different issues.
Horrible wear on brakes, rotors and tires, horrible engine noises including creaking, tweeting, rattling and humming.
Random things like the occasional tire rubbing sound when turning left and randomly not starting, as well as the engine light coming on for no reason and then going off for no reason.
Back up camera sometimes takes a really long time to start up and the radio is sometimes blank when starting.

I wish every day that we had not gotten this car!!!

Best Features

Roof rack.

Worst Features

The only improvement we can come up with is to just scrap production of this vehicle.
