Please Check Out — Dodge Journey owners please go to http://www.change.org/petitions/dodge-journey-s-defects sign and pass along please. Dodge had built and sold this car with defects that they refuse to fix, this is not the kind of quality we should expect. I like most of you had problems with the brakes, rotors, and now the win module went out and the car would not start at all leaving me stranded. Took it to the dealer and racked up a $400 bill, we complained to Chrysler and what did they say? too bad is what they said, even with pointing out they have hundreds of complaints they say they will log the complaint but do nothing about it.

My 2009 Dodge Journey Sxt Awd — I love my 2009 Dodge Journey SXT AWD. I really don't have any complaints so far. The Performance is great with safety to boot. It is VERY fun to drive due to the fact that it handles like a car but you are sitting up higher. Oh, and the sound system is out of this world!!! It is equipped with the Infinity surround system that sounds like no other!!! If you are looking for an SUV with a car like ride and amenities, then this is the ride for you!!!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Great Vehicle For The Money — Great vehicle. The 3.5L V6 is very adequate for this vehicle. You can't even hear it running and yet when you step on it has a nice sound through the dual exhaust. The ride quality is absolutely amazing! My buddy who has a Cadillac Escalade says it rides better than his vehicle. The 19" wheels and chrome plated rims really add a sporty appearance. I get compliments all the time. The gas mileage is pretty good considering it weighs 4000lbs. All in all I would definitely recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for versatility and a very comfortable ride. Oh and I almost forgot....there is storage everywhere!!

Silid Utility Vehicle That Handle Highway Speeds Smoothly — Yet another utility vehicle but this one is a keeper so far. Space and ergonomics sold this vehicle, even though nwe paid too much. It is primarily a postal delivery vehicle but does all of our towing. Good utility vehicle with all of the bells and whistles. There are some intermittant elictrical problems but the dealer has fixed them, no problem.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Dont Waste Your Money!!! — One year old, already has new brakes and new tires. the 19 inch tire is hard to come by, 1K for 4 of them! they are so flimsy - kumho. the balcony 3rd seat is a joke, its hard to fit anything besides a carseat for an infant, no leg room for a 4 year old. Be careful, the hole you put gas in is the only one in the world big enough for a diesel hose!!!!!!!

Pros

I love this car.  It runs great, handles the snow awesome, has a back-up camera, a touch screen radio, and a DVD player.  There is a ton of storage everywhere!  The remote start is so nice in the winter!

Cons

I did change brakes quite a bit, but now that I have put ceramics on, they last a lot longer!  Note:  aftermarket ceramic brakes last longer than the semi-metail dealer ones, but the dealer will turn up their noses when they see you put them on.  They are making a much better version of the semi-metalic ones, but they cost more.

Beautiful, Functional, Practical! — The handling of the car has always been impressive. I was most impressed with the handling in winter conditions. I drive freeway, a long distance, everyday as you can tell by the mileage, and I have never had an issue making it to work as I used to in regular FWD vehicles that did not have the AWD option. I had some build quality issues in the very beginning, which were all taken care of and can be shown on the dealer reports. Common issues. Sometimes it is better to buy used after someone has worked out and fixed all the bugs for you! As much as I do love this car for all of it's features, I am ready to get into something new now so I need to sell this vehicle.

I Love My Journey. — I like the Journey so far as the 6 cylinder and auto trans combo is giving me better mileage than I expected. I enjoy the drive and I can usually pass a vehicle when I want to pass. Even with snow tires, the ride is relatively quiet and very stable. There are storage compartments everywhere; in fact, I have lots of spare space. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for a good replacement for the Dodge Caravan as it is built with the same wheelbase.
