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

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.

Pros: power, quiet ride, safe, storage space

Cons: tire size

My New Car — Just ordered it, but tried a demo version. The car is great, even though I miss AWD I think the exterior on this car is so cool. With 7 seats its a perfect familycar and with 19" wheels dad is satisfied too! The VW 140hk Turbo diesel works perfect in this car.

Pros: Looks

Cons: Miss Xenon headlights and AWD.

Overall Very Good Car — Some issues with the RT and drivers window not working and passenger heat. This is what you might expect with a car with high mileage. Just some general things that you need to fix and replace when the car get older.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great car for what I can afford

Cons: Small issues now with high mileage.

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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.
