The how to on how to not make a car by Adam from Detroit on 09/24/2013. Trim: 2009 Dodge Journey SE, Owned 4 years.
Pros: It has a great stereo system for the basic package. It also has great storage.
Cons: No acceleration at all. No power at all. Engine is to loud and just rings through the cabin. The seats are hard as a rock and the suspension matches that. There is more plastic in this car than metal leaving it with a very poor and cheap quality which makes it very easy to break with the hard suspension. The rear seat has no leg room unless you are under 5 foot or have no legs at all. I also have issues where it randomly will not start and the dealership cannot help me at all with it. It only has 59,000 miles. I also have the four cylinder engine and it gets horrible gas mileage for a four cylinder.
Overall review: Do not buy it!

Great Journey by An MSN Autos Consumer on 04/21/2012. Trim: 2009 Dodge Journey SXT, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Very comfortable driving on long trips. Smooth ride. Handles great. The horsepower is there when you need it. I get 19 mpg in the city and 23 on the highway. If you could get real gas it would even be better. The storage compartments everywhere.
Cons: I had an intermittent starting problem, that was difficult to find. But it had never left me stranded.
Overall review: Great crossover, minivan, SUV, or whatever you want to call it, for a couple or small family.

"Journey LEMONS" in Iowa by Gal with Auto repair education. on 02/17/2012. Trim: 2009 Dodge Journey SXT, Owned 3 years.
Pros: handling, style, smooth ride. I bought this new. only car with square bench like seat for driver with 3 lumber disk problems. Price. .
Cons: Front door wiring harness replaced at 11,000 miles.RECALL NOTICE. I noticed locking problems immeditely but thinking I wasn't operating the auto lock properly- but that wasn't the case. Before I drove the car out of the show room I notice an oil leak on the floor (after papers were signed).their explanation was they put in a new engine cause they could'nt fix the leak. 12 miles on it. Replaced front brake pads and rotors at 13,000 miles & rotor-brake with pad Kit Extended policy coverage NOT a recall They charged me $50.00 deductible Not starting-wouldn't jump either replaced batteries -voltage very low- two times at 11,500 miles and 14,500 miles. Two LEMON LAW ATTORNEYS contacted me
Overall review: Very unhappy. I know this battery problem will continue cause when I start it just dosn't sound right. My warrenty is running out and after this they will have a big charge for me . When I noticed the oil leak in the show room (papers signed) I wanted a different vehicle and they wouldn't do that. I don't know which way to turn. Bought a NEW car so I didn't have to worry about breaking down. I can't even go to Wisconsin to see my family or a doctor in Milwaukee, WI because of this fear. I am handicapped and a senior citizen. This has caused me much mental anguish. I would not in good faith recommend anyone purchase this vehicle. The Attorneys that contacted me indicated that many other's have had the same problems and they are proceeding with a class action law suit against Chrysler/Dodge
