About Dodge Journey

When the topic of 7-passenger SUVs arises, the 2018 Dodge Journey often gets overlooked. That’s a shame because the Journey has some very appealing qualities. The 4-cylinder SE is the lowest-priced 3-row SUV on the market, undercutting the Hyundai Santa Fe, Kia Sorento and Ford Flex by thousands. Granted, the 4-cylinder isn’t very powerful, but you can upgrade to a 283-horsepower V6, as well as all-wheel drive and numerous features ranging from an excellent 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system to a heated steering wheel. The Crossroad trim offers light off-road possibilities, and hefty leasing rebates from Chrysler further sweeten the Journey’s appeal. However, if you’re looking for superior reliability, advanced driver-assist systems or high resale figures, the Journey may not be the best choice.

"This vehicle has an unfair reputation. The V6 AWD models are great cars and come fully loaded for a price less than a base model traverse or explorer. We leased a 2014 Journey when our first child arrived and leased a 2016 Journey after that. We just turned in the 2016 and bought a brand new 2017 AWD GT Journey to coincide with arrival of our second child. Needless to say, this car is reliable, highly functional, great in the snow and on road trips, which is why we decided to buy a new journey after having leased them twice. Great car!"

"I own a 2010 Dodge Journey SXT AWD that has been nothing less than miraculous. I heard a lot of horror stories about the Journey but I got a price I couldn't pass up. The most "unreliable"vehicle now is approaching 100000 miles without any signs of stopping. I have had ZERO problems with it including the brakes. The 3.5 still runs like new and never uses a drop of oil. The A/C still blows Ice Cold and there is absolutely no squeeks or rattles to be heard. The AWD system is excellent, the week I bought it I drove through a nasty blizzard; when traffic came to a standstill, nobody could make it up a very steep hill. I attempted to climb the hill and the Journey kept digging and I was one of four cars to make it to the top (A Subaru, Grand Cherokee, and a Pacifica.) I average 22 mpg which I find acceptable. My new job will require me to do even more driving (60000 a year) and I will probably be buying a new car. The Journey is staying with me as well, I plan on keeping it until it dies. I will be buying a new Durango within the next 6 months. I've had very good luck with Chrysler products and they have won a customer for life."
