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


I read a lot of reviews on the Dodge Journey's and I think the majority of them have big holes. This is not a mini-van, not a fun to drive sports car, it is a family hauler. We immediately took our new-to-us Journey on a 4 hour road trip and it was great. Not once did I adjust my seat, the wife and the one child we took never got sick or hot or cold. Nobody complained at all; at least about anything to do with the vehicle. The ride is smooth and the only thing you can hear from the outside is some engine noise, pretty low level unless you gun it; easily drowned out by the radio at normal levels. I find it easier to drive than a grand caravan, turns really well for its size.

Best Features

Storage bins everywhere.

Worst Features

Chill zone does an OK job, cool for an hour maybe hour and 1/2. Gas mileage, but don't most vehicles need improvement here? We got 22.6 highway, city, well far lower.
