    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Cargo space is great

    Cons: PROBLEMS with brakes rotors, electrical

    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.)

    Pros: So far so good

    Cons: Purchase price, tire costs

    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!!!!!!!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: pretty

    Cons: 14mpg, bad tires, bad brakes, bad electrical system, defective gas tank hole.

    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.)

    Pros: Chill Zone, Navigation, Back up camera, Infinity Sound system

    Cons: NOTHING!!!

    Love It! — The Journey is the ultimate family car. Lots of storage, lots of options, and a great ride. Could use a bigger engine as it's a big heavy car, but what can I say, I like big engines lots n lots.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Comfort, Fun, People-mover

    Cons: Underpowered, but only slightly.

    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!!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: smooth, quiet ride, value for the money, great sounding stereo

    Cons: none as of yet
