"We had nothing but problems from the first week we owned this vehicle. We got this as a reliable vehicle brand new and I was 7 months pregnant with our second child and the vehicles electronics kept shutting down. It was the middle of summer and when this happens your heat comes on and will not shut off becaus it is a feature so if its winter you are able to stay warm, but this doesn't help you in the summer time. We had it in the shop 3 times and had the problem 5 times within a 4 month period."
"We are very happy with the Journey, it has the 3rd row, which is small, but comes in handy, when you need. Wouldn't recommend using 3rd row as regular seating. Dash is nice, seats are comfortable, has basics you need except for cruise control . . .
It drives nice, the only regret is not getting the bigger engine, we prefer a little more pep!
As far as any negatives, the brakes rotars did not hold up for only having vehicle for 12 months."
"Bought this car off the showroom floor in Jan of '09. Impressed by the storage and convenience. The overall fit and finish of this car is lacking. Too much plastic. Gas mileage is no better that a full size SUV. The plastic body panels feel like they want to fall off every time I hand wash the car. Too afraid to drive through power washer in fear of losing body panels. Noisy at highway speeds. Cruise control does not hold steady. Already replaced the brake pads and rotors on front and back. This is my wife driving this car not a race car driver. The brakes should last longer. The passenger front seat can get uncomfortable on long trips. Probably due to the mickey mouse storage seat. Overall, very disappointing."
