Transmissiion and brakes nightmare

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


Bought this vehicle for family use, 3rd seat, and traveling the USA. At 23,000 miles of Mostly Freeway use, the front brake pads had to be replaced and rotors turned. At 25000 miles the 6 speed automatic transmission failed and had to be overhauled. The car is not fancy by luxury standards but has adequate features. Front end alignment has been done twice. Once on a recall and 7 months later as front tires were wearing on the outside? Can't say this is the best Chrysler product I have ever owned.

Best Features

3rd seat, Sun glass holder, storage under passenger seat, auto headlights, and autodimming rear view mirror.

Worst Features

Better upholstery, larger mirrors, and more reliable brake wear and transmission reliability.
