LOVE IT! one weird, dangerous flaw
By aoneil on


2012 Dodge Journey Crew 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


this thing is really fun to drive, maybe a little too much fun. it only took a day, maybe a total of an hour's worth of driving, to figure out the controls and set everything to my liking. the acceleration is pretty good, really smooth when you hit it. Mind you I'm one of those people with 2 speeds - on and off, but she not jarring and very responsive.

Best Features

steering wheel radio controls.

Worst Features

The only thing I truly hate about it is the chrome bezel around the shifter. When the sun is high in the sky, it aims the sun's reflection right into your eyes, blinding you. Almost got me killed right out of a left turn into the sun. I had to keep my right hand over the bezel until I got home. Mind you, it's fine before/after 11/2pm here in Florida in January.
