2018 Dodge Journey Crossroad 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
I wanted a safe, affordable suv that was suitable for our three grandkids and practical for our lifestyle. I bought the 2018 Crossroad AWD in pitch black with black leather interior and black rims. It has the technology that I was hoping for and the third row that we needed. All three of our grandkids are required to sit in carseats. Two of them fit just fine in the third row while the smallest one fits rear facing in the second row. We are very happy that we went with the Crossroad. I can't wait to experience Maine's winter months in this car. If you're looking for a new car to tote kids around in and you're not ready to purchase a minivan, this is the car for you!
The Dodge Journey is truly an exceptional vehicle. My wife has the Dodge Journey Crossroad V6 AWD, and that vehicle is a workhorse. I saw how well the vehicle drove especially with a newborn and a toddler traveling on major highways and roads with no issues regardless of any inclement weather. We drove the car cross country, and to Canada, and didn’t feel tired at all. It was time for me to purchase a new vehicle, and I was always a Subaru guy, but I fell in love with the Journey. It has great handling, no road noise, very comfortable ride. Good visibility, and commanding driving position. Many hiding compartments, and very easy to clean (Turtle wax interior, and Turtle wax ICE on the outside). I give this vehicle a 100% coming from owing two previous Subaru Outback’s. Well done Dodge!
It is true that Dodge has not updated the Journey since 2011. It is true that it does not carry some of the new advanced electronics that it's competitors do. However, if you want an SUV for a great price, the Dodge Journey is the model of choice. SO far, I really like the Dodge Journey. It is comfortable to drive. It handles the road. My biggest recommendation is to get the optional V6 engine. You will thank me for that. I test drove the 4Cyl. version. It was very underpowered. The V6 is just right for this size vehicle. Overall, I recommend the Dodge Journey. Dealers have some phenomenal deals going on now.
Dodge is turning a quick buck on this baby! I have the basic model and they went too far; moreover, it was like the stripped it when they built it in Mexico. #1 on the motor they no longer put the cover on the top of motor. #2 They managed to make the front passenger seat so it will not fold down flat ( forward)for long cargo! #3 the digital interface for the speedometer looks like they forgot to finished it with a small digital display for the speed and arrows that stay permanently on, of instead of say a four inch display its closer than less than three inches. #4 DO NOT pull out inform of any moving vehicle because it has the speed of a slug with salt, I think it is the transmission or the computer system, but if you think you are going to floor the gas pedal it will not move very fast. #5 the standard radio is NOT interchangeable with any radio at your local store and I was quoted at best buy over seven hundred for the face plate or in this car the whole front console; moreover, a good blue tooth radio is only a few hundred but you have to buy the console so you are looking a close to a Grand! #6 the regular beams only seem to go out around 100 feet!
