I bought this vehicle new in 2014. I bought the SE model because of the price and fuel mileage. The reliability has been great and the comfort is good. The only down sides are the fuel mileage is no better than the v6 and it's slightly under powered for a vehicle this size. Also when the 3rd row seat is up the cargo room is very small. Overall am happy with my journey. I would buy one again but would step up to the next package with the v6 and the upgraded systems.
The absolute worst car I have ever owned. Major engine repairs starting at less than 50,000 miles. The dealership attempted to repair the vehicle 10+ times for 2 major problems with no long term success, and when we attempted to lemon law the vehicle Chrysler denied there was anything wrong. After 3 years of ownership the rear main seal was replaced 3 times, and still leaking when traded in, had lifter/cam issues 4 times and the car still made a horrible ticking noise (the dealership insisted it was normal). At 100,000 miles fuel injectors and spark plugs were replaced. At trade in 104,000 miles the transmission had began to have issues as well. This is a horrible vehicle, and Chrysler doesn't value customer service and make things right!

Have had this one now since new. 96,000 miles on it. its in the shop at least once a month at this point. Check engine light, dash shuts out often at random times, shifts like crap to the point of wondering if you hit something when it drops into lower gear. Started out as fine vehicle.... enough space with third row as others state... once i hit the 100,000 miles and drivetrain warranty is gone, so is the car. just this week picked up the car after receiving an engine overhaul due to all 4 Camshafts going out along with all lash adjusters in the engine. at least covered under warranty of drivetrain. so goodbye junker and on to another vehicle soon....

Make sure it was not a Rental first! Less than 3 years old and already total brake system failure. Back seat structural failure cost $1700 to replace from Dodge. Transmission jerky between gears. Generally just a terrible vehicle.
We have had the car for 4 years and never had any problems. Engine is really underpowered but the car provides a comfortable and silent ride. Space for the kids and luggage. Entertainment system is OK for the price, same with materials. Dodge dealership is pretty bad, unfortunately this seams to be a common trend with car sellers.
