So Far- It works
By Tony on


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


Bought this car with 19,000 miles on it. I've put 20,000 more in the 7 months that i've owned it. Chrysler vehicles are always a great deal,if purchased used. The front brakes were replaced at 19,000, when the first owner traded the car in. I replaced the rears(??) at 38,000 miles. While this is too soon, the Mercedes- type pads are very dusty and wear quickly. Hopefully, the bendix pads will last longer. They aren't nearly as dusty. The Kumho tires were replaced at 38,000. This is the only company that makes the (OEM) 19in. size. They were $270-$320 at tire stores and were purchased for $186 at Tirerack.This car runs great. Gets over 20mpg avg. I drive it like i stole it and it's great

Best Features

Acceleration, cornering, lots of amenities for the price, comfortable seats, great radio, easy to use folding seats, great mileage compared to size and acceleration. Very good ergonomics

Worst Features

Trim on rocker panels gets your pants dirty when wet. Tire size is Brand Specific.

We put Yokohama tires on our Journey last week, they were a little wider is all and we love that look. The stock tires had 44,000 miles on them. We like our Journey and haven't had anything go bad.
