If you're looking for minivan utility and storage space, without the minivan look, the Journey is a viable option. With its available third-row seating, it offers more room than the Ford...

Change the cabin air filter annual.

Mine is the r/t AWD. I have had it for little over 2 years now. Problem I have had was the rear door hatch broke. So I was not able to use the back. It cost around 100 for the part to fix it and it is hard to finally get it open to fix it. The a/c gave problems but easy fix. It haves be reliability been from TX to SC and back. I have leather sets. Heated sets and mirrors, sunroof. One thing I do not like is my does not have the third row seat and no dual a/c.

Nothing really remarkable. Sometimes seems to be more trouble than it is worth.

Currently we've had to replace the radiator and now we have to take it back in because we're still losing radiator fluid. None of the seals are tight in the front of the car and every time it rains we get puddle in the passenger seat and water falls down on us from the sunglass holder. The trim covering the rails that the seats move back and forth on are broken and the rails are exposed causing you to cut your legs if you are not careful getting in the car.

The pros and cons of the 2009 dodge journey.

I drive a 2009 dodge journey. I got lucky when I bought the car used because it only had 27,900 miles on it. I love how much space it has and all of the storage compartments. It does ok on gas and with the current gas prices takes about 40 to fill up. The only problems I have with the vehicle is that it does not accelerate as fast as I want it to from a stopped position. Also the car has to be manually unlocked. Other than that, it's a pretty decent car.
