    Best Vehicle I've Ever Owned — I love this vehicle. It has lots of passing power and handles really well on the road. I have 55,000 miles on it and I have driven it in all kinds of weather. With my snow tires, I feel very comfortable driving in snow or wet weather. I did have to have my oil pump replaced but it was done under warranty and posed no problem as I saw the warning light and still could drive anywhere with it anyway. The engine is very quiet and I find the transmission is a big improvement over the 2009 I drove previously. In fact, I liked the 2009 so much I traded it for the 2012 and I am very satisfied. It is what I call a mid-size SUV, a little larger than the Honda HR-V or Toyota RAV4. In my opinion, the Dodge Journey would suit anyone who wants a reliable vehicle that has pulling power too.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: easy handling, lots of storage, lots of power, fun to drive, towing capacity, quiet driving

    Cons: rear visibility, rear seats uncomfortable, large tires

    Great Family Option — Decent amount of space, great handling, great standard features, but very entry level quality. I sold this vehicle after about two years of ownership. It was a joy to take on road trips but I should've opted for the V6 SXT. Don't sell yourself short. Get the better version of this vehicle and you'll be happy.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great styling, comfort, and price

    Cons: Poor rear visibility, weak power in V4 engine, MPG should be better, lots of thin plastic.

    I Really Like This I Was Leasing This Car Now I'm Going To Keep It As A Company Car — This SUV has power and a smooth ride. It accelerates quickly and there is no roll moving fast around curves. I have the 3.6L 6-speed trans. SXT. FWD. Digital console is easier than it first appears. But can take your eyes off of road too long if you are not careful. Unfortuanatley my model did not come with a vanity light or visor extension, but this is minor. Like the good gas mileage.Over all this is very good car

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: This car has great power for its size.Also great pickup

    Cons: This car does have a few blind spots. But after drive it for some time you learn how to get around them.
