2011 Journey AWD - Sixth Chrysler/Dodge Vehicle is a Disaster
By michiganmom on


2011 Dodge Journey Crew 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


I admit, I made the mistake of trading in an 08 Chrysler Aspen with no problems (60,000 miles) for the 2011 Journey AWD in the hopes of better gas mileage.
Gas Mileage: 12 avg. mpg in the city & 15.8 avg. mpg on the hwy.
Sound System: Broken CD player, stations change when traveling over a bump, no sound due to poor wiring located under passenger seat.
OE Tires: Worn pre-maturely, Over $1000.00 to replace on a lease, unusual size & hard to find.
Remote keys and push button start not communicating - car would not start
Constant brake noise and grinding after 100 miles.
Accelerator stopped working while driving 70 on a hwy - car died on hwy with kids in the vehicle.

Best Features

Dashboard - all instruments are easy to reach and understand. Love the U-connect when not being temperamental. Comfortable seating. Fun to drive!! Sporty appearance. Third row seat is a definite asset but can only accommodate small children. Push button start is wonderful when working especially for people who might have arthritis in their hands. I prefer the overall looks of the Journey vs. other cars in it's class. Easy to get in and out of vehicle...overall goo comfort.

Worst Features

Improve the gas mileage!!! Better interior cloth options where stitching does not unravel. More tire options!!!! Better OE tires and warranty Improve overall safety of the vehicle by adding higher quality parts - audio, electrical, transmission, brakes etc... Improve the third row seating. Moving the entire second row manually is extremely difficult. Might consider a second row option that will lie flat.
