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!

Never again by mom of 3 from Philly on 04/13/2014. Trim: 2009 Dodge Journey SXT, Owned 6 years.
Pros: the ability to fold down all five seats for extra storage.
Cons: ive had starting problems several times, but i was eventually able to get car started. tpms problems. All four tpms sensors are broken, seems like cheap quality parts. Also, rear window is extremely difficult to see out of when backing up, and viewing area is even worse when third row seats are up. Now both front automatic windows wont go down.
Overall review: My car has only 55,000 miles on it, but it is in the shop every three months for problems.

2009 Boss of Dodge Journey by Penny on 10/21/2013. Trim: 2009 Dodge Journey, Owned 1 year.
Pros: I really like all the chrome on the front hood of vehicle. The overall appearance of the exterior is very good. the interior of the vehicle seats front and back is very poor. When seata get wet with water the stains remain on the seats. I have never seen car seats that stains from water ater being wet. The 2009 Dodge Journey looks better than the new 2013 in style with the body of it. The stereo system need some volume, bluetooth, and more whistles and bells.
Cons: The seats are not good as far as stains of water on them. The engine is noisy and the ride is very bumpy.
Overall review: The 2009 Dodge Journey is a very nice looking vehicle, however if there had been some more whistles and bells added to this vehcicle, like blue tooth connection, gps, and good stereo system it would be the best Dodge of this year 2009. If Dodge gives me some type of discount to have my Blue Tooth connect and my stereo improved I would broadcast how great the Dodge manufacturers are with the treatment of it's customers.

Bi Polar Journey by mother of 4 stranded! on 09/12/2013. Trim: 2009 Dodge Journey RT, Owned 3 years.
Pros: at first it was a good traveling vehicle for road trips.
Cons: No pick up, brakes are worthless, intermittant starting problem has left me stranded 20 times in the past 4 months! It's been towed to mechanics nothing wrong. Back to the dealer numerous times! I've had 3 batteries, battery cables changed, alternator, starter, starter wires, ground wires, keys, win module...it's a Bi-polar car! When I take it to the garage it starts. I take it go somewhere like school it won't start. No "check engine" so it doesn't leave a code in the computer! ugh!! frustrated and would never buy this vehicle or recommend. I've always owned dodges too! Very undependable!!! Don't buy it!
Overall review: not a dependable vehicle!
