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


I loved loved my interior of my journey.
I bought it in November of 2008 and I just had to trade it off because of continuous mantenance issues.
I love the design of the car however I have never gone 2 months without it being in the shop.
At 49,000 miles I have replaced the brakes and rotors 3 times.
The axel seals were replaced 3 times.
The car wouldn't start 2 times.
I had the right and left boot replaced.
Last moth the power steering blew.
I had to have it towed.
The final straw was the transfer case went out.
Thank God I bought the extended warranty because it had paid for itself in only 4 months into the contract.
The tires were a Nightmare to replace.
Only Kuhmo sold them

Best Features

I loved all the features that have nothing to do with mechanics such as the stereo. And interior colors. Thats it!

Worst Features

Need to have different tires made them. The ones I bought were $900.00 a set and only lasted 2 years. And guess what? No other tires available. It was a crazy nightmare! Don't listen to the dealer. Call around with the tire number you'll see. The entire mechanical design needs to be redone. Too many problems. They produced a Lemon.
