Has potential - but flawed
By DaveM on


2010 Dodge Journey SXT 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


I've driven this SUV for 4100 miles through all sorts of terrain. Good: Interior storage, comfort, & the value. There are plenty of places to put things, & the seats are comfortable for 6-hour stretches. Bad: Ergonomics, handling, power, & transmission. The controls, especially the stalks, are confusing & illogical, making for dangerous situations in heavy rain or using the cruise. Body roll in emergency maneuvers is scary. The engine has too little power for a V-6 and stumbles on acceleration. Transmission programming is so bad I had to shift manually on most hills. Visibility out the rear window is poor. This SUV has potential, but is dangerously flawed. I don't recommend buying.

Best Features

Storage, seat comfort, room, interior features, value, size, visibility (except rear)

Worst Features

Engine power; handling; transmission programming/ratios; ergonomics, especially design of the controls for cruise control, lights, and windshield wipers; data readout controls need to be moved so you don't have to reach inside the steering wheel to change the selection.
