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!
Not got good ratings, but it does the job it was bought for. Had a Ford escape before, no difference in performance or consumption. The car is very basic with no Bluetooth or even overtaking mirrors. BUT I,m happy enough with what I got for the money and trade in.
