    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.

    A Smaller, Better Looking Version Of The Grand Caravan. — My main critique of the Journey is the performance. Though I should not expect much since it's based off a minivan, I was hoping for more of an SUV platform. My wife loves the car and it's great for moving large objects. The main drawback is it handles just like a minivan. So if that is what you're looking for, you have the right car.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: I like the interior design and space.

    Cons: Hard to say anything good about the handling.
