I used to be a "Mopar or no car" guy. Thanks to the Dodge Journey, I'm now a Ford guy.

2009 Dodge Journey

The only things I like about this car is the color (white), the body style, and that it seats 7. Having a large family it is a necessity for each of them to have their own seat. The gas mileage is very poor for this Journey. It is a 3.5 litre V6 High Output motor. And it outputs a lot of fuel consumption. I average 11 miles a gallon in the city, and 13-15 miles per gallon on the highway. That's with the vehicle in tip-top condition. Oil change, tune-up, good tires, everything in proper condition. This car also blows fuses. More than I blow my top! Ridiculous! There are so many electrical issues that I have seriously thought of just giving this car away at times. I've had to replace every engine accessory part at least twice. The only reason I haven't gotten rid of the car is I won't get back all the money I've invested into it. I highly recommend not buying a Dodge Journey. Trust me! You're wallet, your nerves, and those around you will Thank You for it.

Getting a Dodge Journey to turn on

2009 Dodge Journey

My vehicle frequently doesn't start. There's nothing wrong with it, and the problem cannot be fixed. I have been told that occasionally the anti theft system will engage and will prevent the vehicle from starting. I have to try various things to get it to start, like opening the front door, shifting hard on the gear shift, etc. There's no one thing that seems to work. This is problematic as I have children, and in the winter and summer it can be a problem to be stranded somewhere without heat or air conditioning. It does drive well once started. It gets pretty good gas mileage, and I haven't had other problems with it. I guess the starting thing is just an issue with the 2009 model, too.

Love my journey! The coolers in the floors.

2009 Dodge Journey SE

Love my journey. It has had few problems. The one it does have is that I can only have heat on one side of the vehicle due to a switch that is out. But is so labor intensive that my husband won't even consider trying to fix it. I love that it has fold down seats so if I need to get something large in the back I can. I like that way it drives. Easy to handle. I enjoy the fact that it has coolers in the floors. And a beverage cooler in the dashboard area. Plenty of storage options. I don't know what size the motor is, but it has lots of pep. Mine only has front wheel drive. I've noticed that most journeys have all wheel drive. Doesn't bother me any. Handles well on ice and snow.

2009 dodge journey problems starting

2009 Dodge Journey SXT

My car has troubles starting. One day it will be fine the next it will leave me stranded. There is a problem with the security sensor and happens in most dodge journeys year 2009 thru 2011. I do not recommend this vehicle. However I like the SUV style. Seating is comfortable, looks nice on the inside as well. The back seat can lay flat so you can fit large objects in the back which is nice. Stereo system works very well and you can put multiple CDs in at one time. Plenty of storage, passenger seat lifts up for storage and there is a trunk and more storage in the back where you set your feet

This car is the most basic version of the car you can get.

2009 Dodge Journey

Brakes went out after normal wear and tear. Luckily I was able to hear the noises and get it into a mechanics shop before they went out while I was driving. I take good care of my car and change the oil when the mileage says too. Earlier this year the chain for the shifter broke and that was more of an ordeal as the mechanic had to come and break the chain in order to shift my car and take it straight to the dealer. Then the part was on backorder, so I went 2 weeks without a car.

- Alex O

Change the cabin air filter annual.

2009 Dodge Journey

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.

- Melody M

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

2009 Dodge Journey

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.

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.

2009 dodge journey review

2009 Dodge Journey SE

Needs struts and an oil change. But in great condition overall have no issues with it. I love it, because it's big enough for my 3 kids and I and I am a hockey mom so it fits all my son's hockey equipment plus all our groceries and then some. Yesterday it fit 3 laundry baskets to go to the laundroMat and Some supplies from Walmart which was nice because I didn't think I was gonna have enough room with having 2 kids and the 3 basket's.

The Dodge Journey Will Take you on Endless Journeys with family!

2009 Dodge Journey SE

It seats 7, has SiriusXM radio, the hatchback is perfect for active sport, camping, and vacationing. I've only had one serious issue with the crankshaft sensor and after it was repaired it ran perfectly fine. I have two bucket storage areas, the two side seats are equipped with booster seats which is convenient for my 8 and 10 year old. And I also enjoy that the seats lay completely back for drive ins.

- Allison G

Nice interior, seats 7 people . (little people more comfortably. V6 engine. has an AUX :)

2009 Dodge Journey

I personally love my car! I rate it 4 stars because i have had issues with it . Like the coolant keeps coming out overheating my hair and the gas cap says it's open when it isn't. BUT they are fixable. The engine could be stronger for the car type. It's a super cute car and pretty up to date considering its 9 years old. I really like it. Considering the Dodge Durango. newer year though

- Cristian W

Great family car, very gas efficient and reliable.

2009 Dodge Journey

I have had this car for almost 10 years. The vehicle is a great family car my favorite things is the built in booster seat. However the thing that I have had problems with from the very beginning are the brakes. And has had several recalls. Didn't have major problems until about 2 years ago which I guess is normal since I bought brand new. Overall I would buy this car again brand new.

- Laura G

Convenient front and back wipers that continue to work.

2009 Dodge Journey

The seats are uncomfortable, a lot of wasted space that could make the back seat more comfortable. There is no convenient are to store things in as they made such small storage areas to get to easily. The glove compartment has a cooler that causes space to be wasted. The back area has such a lightweight cover that you cannot carry anything very heavy or the floor will break.

- Diane N

Awesome vehicle all around!

2009 Dodge Journey SXT

I love the comfort the vehicle provides. It is very roomy for my family. The journey drive smoothly. I really haven't had any huge issues with it. My husband said it is going to need a wiper motor soon because the wipers are starting to slow down. Other than that I have not had to put much money into it. But remember it is a 2009. We are in 2019 so I would say awesome SUV!

- Amanda M

My families adventurous dodge.

2009 Dodge Journey SE

My vehicle is a medium size SUV, great for small families. Drives amazingly and is super affordable on gas! Leather seats make it easy to clean up after little ones and the trunk capacity is good traveling and grocery shopping. Great features, such as aux port; traveling with friends makes the adventure better. Extra space to install a portable DVD player for little ones.

- Courtney R

Dodge Journey- family vehicle. Good, reliable car, good for road trips.

2009 Dodge Journey

There's a lot of room, especially in the back. Runs good. No issues have come up since I have had it. As long as you keep everything currant, oil change, tires rotated. It should last a while. It's really comfortable to drive on long trips. The floor in the back lifts up so you have extra storage. The seats lay down so you can haul some furniture in the back if needed.

- Jessica J

My car is all wheel drive. It seats seven.

2009 Dodge Journey SXT

I recently had to have my transmission replaced. I was involved in an accident that damaged my differential, which in turn damaged my transmission. Besides the transmission I haven't had any serious issues with my truck. It drives like a dream. It is equipped with an infinity sound system, which I love. I have a touch screen radio, TV and 5 disc CD changer.

Dodge Journey: The best 'Mom' Car

2009 Dodge Journey SE

My car rides very smooth. I barely feel a bump in the road. It still rides like a charm even though it's so old. I love the space that I have in the car. Being a football and track mom I really needed a large trunk to accommodate all of my stuff. I can also take long trips and I don't have to hear any complaining because there is more than enough leg room.

- Tania M

Space wise, this car is amazing for family trips!

2009 Dodge Journey SXT

It is a very nice car for a family. You have plenty of room in the car and it's nice for family trips. The car itself isn't the best on gas mileage, and not keeping your oil changed seems to make your gas drain faster. Overall, it seems like a pretty reliable car. My Dodge Journey is a 2009 model but it will runs great, considering it is 9 years old.

- Charles R

Lots of work don't buy if it's over 100,000 miles

2009 Dodge Journey

The third row is not easily accessible. It has needed many repairs in just the 21/2 years I've had it. Yes I bought it used but I've replaced the y fitting for the coolant, axle, strut and strut mounts, control arms, sway bar, etc. the reliability hasn't been there for me so I've been disappointed in that. And now currently the gas gauge don't work

- Tiffanie D

Best Dodge I have ever driven.

2009 Dodge Journey

There are 2 things about my 2009 Dodge Journey sxt that I do not like. I do not like that every other week when the weather gets cold the "low tire pressure" symbol comes on. This year model does not show which tire, so you have to check the pressure on all 4 tires every time to see which one is low. Other than the above, I love my Journey!

- Deborah M

Good family car for traveling in the road

2009 Dodge Journey SE

I love my journey but it is not without its problems. The battery on this vehicle is in the undercarriage which makes it hard to get to. It doesn't have 3rd row seating there is plenty of cargo space. I love the storage in the floor in the second row and there are built in booster seats which come in hand when I have my grandchildren with me.

- Chandra D

The Dodge Journey is so Spacious and has good storage space

2009 Dodge Journey SXT

My Dodge Journey is a nice SUV. It is very spacious and a lot of storage space. It seats up to 7 people. And has a very nice stereo system with annotation for satellite radio and also a 6 CD changer. The only thing that I have some complaints about the gas mileage and that gets worse every months. I don't believe is good on mileage per gallon

- Denise S

Journey with secret storage

2009 Dodge Journey SE

I've had my journey for about a year now and have had absolutely no problems with it. The only thing I don't like about it is I literally use all 7 seats so there is no storage unless you fold all the seats down. It's a really reliable car for a big family like myself, to get where you need to go. It has excellent gas mileage.

- Abigail G

Nice spacious Dodge Journey

2009 Dodge Journey SE

The car drives smooth. It seems to have a oil leak and the check engine light to turn off. Not positive what the problem is. Wish it had a third row but the bonus is that our has the trunk space that we need while also having the space in the middle. Nice bonus is the drink holder in the front above the glove compartment.

- Michelle W

Dodge Journey - Great Car

2009 Dodge Journey SXT

The neutral safety switch on these cars is notoriously bad, but it's an easy fix. If your journey does not start, try putting it in neutral, it should start right up. Excellent mid-size SUV; not too big but not too small. Gas efficiency is that which can be expected of an SUV. Overall, great car. Definitely would recommend.

- Lauren L

Dodge journey: great for everyone.

2009 Dodge Journey SXT

This car is great for a single person or a family. There are third row seats so the vehicle seats 7 total. I do not use the third row. Instead, I use it for extra storage. The gas mileage is decent. I love the back up camera but do not like where the screen is located inside the vehicle. The touch screen is nice though.

- Kelsey G

Great for large families.

2009 Dodge Journey

I have been through quite a few water pumps and timing belts with the car but I have an unlimited warranty so it pays for it. The brakes and tires are constantly replaced on it but I now have over 150, 000 miles and it is still running. Overall the look of the truck in great shape and fits everything I need into it.

- Natalie M

The fierce SUV with a nice body design and comfy interior.

2009 Dodge Journey SXT

This is by far the best vehicle I have ever owned. Only issues I have had with it have been normal wear and tear. Great vehicle and AWD handles great in snow. Have only had to replace brakes, battery and tires. It gets great gas mileage for an SUV and has a nice amount of legroom for a 3rd row seat vehicle.

- Angela C

Great vacation automobile

2009 Dodge Journey SXT

It's rather loud. Overall very roomy and comfortable with decent leg room. Easy to handle. Check engine light seems to stay on even after having it repaired. Seats are leather so it's hot in summer but have warmers for VW inter time. It has been pretty reliable with minor issues due to wear and tear.

- Glenda R

The journey of my Dodge Journey

2009 Dodge Journey SXT

This is the most reliable vehicle that I've had. The seats are very comfortable, and the fabric is easy to clean. Performance wise this car has great pick up. One of the things I like the most about my Journey is the mirror that allows me to see in the back, this is going to be good when I have kids.

- Dominique G

I love that the floorboards lift to store extras and the back is very roomy.

2009 Dodge Journey SXT

I just bought this vehicle today. It is a little loud and rough. I love all the features in this vehicle. I'm not sure of any issues yet. It has 112k miles on it and seems reliable. The idle is a little high but it seems to handle well on the freeway and street. Downfall, there is no cruise control.

- Samantha B

The gas mileage is not good a all, it drinks oil.

2009 Dodge Journey

Have had issues with my vehicle since I have purchased. The passenger side window has stopped rolling down or up and cannot fix it. Have had to replace several things on the vehicle that should have been recalled. I have spent about 4, 000 dollars just trying to fix it. Will never own a Dodge again!

- Christina C

Family auto all branches have bad reputations.

2009 Dodge Journey

These car was sold by the worse auto dealer so the car has major issues with the cooling system, brake system, and fuel system. It does not pick up speed as it should, and it is currently using a gallon of gas for every 8 miles I drive, I personally think the issue is with the dealer not the car.

- Felicia B

The most interesting detail is the storage in the floor in the back.

2009 Dodge Journey

One thing that I love about my Journey it is really good on gas. I also love the floor compartments where I can put extra items in a secure place or if I want to store cold drinks. I wish I had heated seats a GPS system. It is a smooth riding vehicle. The design of the vehicle is really cool.

- Brenda P

The benefits of having a dodge journey.

2009 Dodge Journey

Great little car with amazing features. Its compact so it fit nicely in small parking areas, and yet had plenty of legroom. I love parallel parking my car it's now a quick and easy mission. Great gas mileage DVD player, XM radio, u connect, and lots of storage. Perfect car for my family of 5.

- Abby K

It has lots of fancy features that are appealing at first, but it's not very practical for families.

2009 Dodge Journey

My vehicle is okay. I thought the idea of 3rd row would be nice, but theres no storage room with the 3rd row up. It also has no rear air, so my kids stay hot and sweaty during the summer. It's not very easy to work on, even for simple things like installing a new battery or changing the oil.

- Haley K

Pros and cons to owning a 2009 Dodge Journey

2009 Dodge Journey R/T

It is a German/American car so the repairs can be pretty pricey but overall good running car. It has a little speed to it to so that's a plus. But just make sure to keep the rims stock when you buy it. I have a lot of issues because I bought the car second hand with flat tire notifications

- John P

All about the Dodge Journey.

2009 Dodge Journey

It been one thing after another with this Journey we did the breaks then transmission then coolant problems then thermostat and finally a new motor. When it runs good it handles great and gets good mileage. Its has a lot of room and has 3rd row seating, has built in coolers in the floor.

- Jessica T

Lots of room for comfort.

2009 Dodge Journey

The 2009 Dodge journey is very economical and a hardy vehicle it drives well and is the best vehicle for people who like outdoor activities. It spacious and fits five people comfortably there is lots of room for camping supplies and even room to cool some drinks off in your dashboard.

- Dominique G

Great vehicle. Happy with my purchase.

2009 Dodge Journey

The car is super spacious. So far it has been super reliable. I love how it performs. It is very comfortable. This vehicle fits my needs. Love its design. I did have some trouble with my CD player. It would not read discs. I had to get that replaced. Love that it has Sirius radio.

- Belle S

2009 Dodge Journey problems after 100,000 miles

2009 Dodge Journey R/T

Constant transmission problems, warnings about oil changes after getting an oil change, little to no resale value. Shock and strut problems early. Electrical problems with power windows. Comfortable and roomy interior. Sunroof eventually leaks with hard rain. Good gas mileage.

- Naomi E

My Journey it is my favorite car to date. I think Dodge is the best.

2009 Dodge Journey SE

I really enjoy my journey. It is comfortable, roomy, excellent mileage on the highway. I really like the room you have when you lay the back seats down allowing extra room. I appreciate having the hatchback. Cold air, warm heat. It is roomy as an SUV but not large and bulky.

- Marsha S

2009 Dodge Journey SXT and Electrical problems? You?

2009 Dodge Journey SXT

My Dodge Journey SXT has electrical problems and usually turns off on me or doesn't turn on I have to turn the car over usually a dozen of times to get it to start. I can't use certain lights because they stay on whether the truck is on or off. The trunk has so many issues.

- Des C

Nice smooth riding vehicle with a good entertainment package for having kids.

2009 Dodge Journey SXT

It has a TV and DVD player in the back seat a touch screen in the front the seats are comfortable the heat blows cold on the passenger side for some reason it drives nice accelerates quick I like the car radio speakers aren't very loud I don't regret buying this vehicle.

- Aaron B

It has 150,000 miles on it

2009 Dodge Journey SXT

The back windows don't work, the passenger one is about to go, the heat does not work and it has had numerous brake issues. I have probably put more money into this car in the past 4 years than it is worth. It has gotten me where I need to go but it is testing my nerves

- Ethan M

Its a vehicle that you can take on a great vacation.

2009 Dodge Journey SXT

It has 3 TV with DVD. You can play your music aux cord. It has a lot of room and it fits 7 or 9 depending on the people. Lol Its a v6 and it doesn't waste a lot of gas. It's very sleek and it reminds me of a Durango. It has a lot of features plus it also has a sunroof.

- Mario A

Reliable, affordable, family vehicle.

2009 Dodge Journey

No problems, normal wear and tear. I was lucky enough to have a lifetime warranty offered. With this a lot I pay the deductible and its covered. The seats are not comfortable due to the many storage compartments. The light colored beige is hard to keep clean with kids.

- Kathleen D

Husband is 6', over four hundred lbs. I am less than 5' power seats make it work.

2009 Dodge Journey

I have replaced the radiator, transmission fluid, fixed the brakes and had general maintenance done and had the air conditioner fixed because the seal broke. Currently the tubing to the windshield wipers is broken because it became brittle due to the heat in our area.

- Beth R

It's a versatile car to meet your needs. Good cargo space, can carry up to six people.

2009 Dodge Journey

Likes: It's easy for me to get in and out of. can carry six people at a time. The heated seats!! Easy to drive and park. With the back seats down there is a lot of cargo space. Dislikes: It doesn't get good gas mileage. Any parts we have to get are usually expensive.

- Kristi B

Dodge journey great for the whole family.

2009 Dodge Journey R/T

Great for families with kids lots of room and storage and passengers only negative is gas mileage. My kids live it because they can put rear seats down and make a bed in the back. It also has power outlets for 12v. In the rear seating area. Sunroof is also a plus.

- Chad B

My journey has been very reliable even with the light coming on

2009 Dodge Journey SXT

I love my journey for the most part. The seats are extremely comfortable and I absolutely love the heated seats. My journey drives great but have had issues with the abs light coming on. It is a very reliable car since I have had it even with the light coming on.

- Nicole W

It is a good family car it just does not room in the third row small kids are ok.

2009 Dodge Journey

I do not like how small the third row seat is it has no legroom in the third row also very small trunk. There was a starting issue sometimes it just will not turn over and still can't find the problem it only happened three times so far in about six month period.

- Constance B

A sleek Dodge Journey for the avid traveler.

2009 Dodge Journey

My vehicle is great for traveling or road tripping. Its spacious, has satellite radio, and just is an all around nice car to drive. I would recommend this car to a small family possibly, or even someone that works from home and has to transport goods from home.

- Celeste L

My journey, the right ride for me.

2009 Dodge Journey R/T

I love my journey! Best vehicle I have ever had. Love the sunroof, the heated leather seats and the stereo system in it is great! It get great gas mileage and had a comfortable ride. I searched for my perfect vehicle and finally found it with my dodge journey.

- Wendy K

Great spacious Family SUV

2009 Dodge Journey SXT

I love the sunroof in my dodge journey. I also love the third row of seating. It comes in so handy. The car is very spacious, the air has to be charged about once a month but other than that, the car runs great, and is the most reliable car I have ever owned.

- kayla H

A Beautiful Truck that Drives like a Truck! The Journey

2009 Dodge Journey R/T

Basic issues. Very comfortable drive and holds 5 comfortable. Truck is beautiful and it's a four cylinder that handles well in summer and in winter. Gas is good and we bought it used 3 years ago no major problems at all. The Dodge Journey is a great Vehicle.

- Lisa D

Family friendly and enjoyable

2009 Dodge Journey SE

I really don't have any problems with my vehicle. They only thing I don't like is why did they have to remove the dipstick from the oil. Other than that the I like the third row sits there easy to access and fold down and the radio sounds good and is loud

- Rosario R

09 Dodge Journey, pros and cons.

2009 Dodge Journey

Nice vehicle, has a smooth drive, lots of interior space, good handling and gas mileage for its class of vehicle. Seems to burn through brakes and bearings though. High maintenance costs at times. All wheel drive is nice, as well as the third row seating.

- Andrew H

Dodge Journey and it is amazingly high storage capacity.

2009 Dodge Journey

The comfort is amazing, third row seating and super spacious. Has tons of hidden compartments like in the back seat the floorboards lift up. Also the passenger seat where you sit lifts up for storage as well. Super speak and clean. Performance is awesome.

- Shay B

Great SUV. Roomy and extra row of seats fold away for cargo space.

2009 Dodge Journey SXT

So far not too much trouble. I think there have been 2 recalls but nothing major. We keep it well maintained. Kids love the DVD player. Draw back to the interior is that it is black with a light grey inset. The light grey gets all the spills and stains.

- Sandy W

Perfect level for a family vehicle

2009 Dodge Journey

My car is amazing. It has been completely reliable as has our other Dodge. It is very comfortable and has lots of space with hidden compartments which I appreciate for organization. It is an 09' so it is more basic inside but in some ways I prefer that.

- Breanna F

Very reliable, wonderful SUV.

2009 Dodge Journey SE

I can always get into my car and it will start. Very reliable. Has 3rd row seating lots of room. Great gas mileage. Nice looking. Get lots of compliments on the style of my small SUV. Would recommend to anyone with a family or someone that needs room.

- Stephanie B

2009 dodge journey r/t AWD. Decent vehicle. Expensive repairs at a frequent rate

2009 Dodge Journey R/T

Eats brakes and calipers every 3 months and 19 inch tires are hard to come by and are expensive. Decent gas mileage, leather seats, heated seats, sunroof, and lots of space. Good for trips or large amounts of shopping. Expensive to repair and maintain

- Natalie I

I think it's important for people to know that it has a third row of seats and lots of storage compartments all throughout it and a traveling rack on the top.

2009 Dodge Journey

I love that my vehicle has a third row of seats unfortunately it's rather tight when the third row is up. I also love that it has built in navigation, an outlet plug, and sunroof. One of the things I dislike is that it uses a lot of gas.

- Hannah D

My 2009 Dodge Journey gets good gas mileage and I can go pretty far on a tank of gas.

2009 Dodge Journey

My Dodge Journey gets good mileage and that is my favorite thing about it. It is comfortable to drive and my mechanic knows a lot about it so I can get it repaired when it needs it (not often) cheaper than taking it to the dealership.

- Joanne R

When well maintained requires no maintenance. Very dependable!

2009 Dodge Journey

I like the look of the vehicle, the comfortable seats, and smooth driving along with all the accessories and storage put into this vehicle. I have no complaints! Out of all the vehicles I have owned, this one is my all time favorite!

- Tammy C

Dodge Journey is a great SUV that is dependable. It has the luxuries of a larger SUV. Plenty of room in the back for groceries or travel luggage. It has been a great vehicle to drive.

2009 Dodge Journey

I like the area in the back where I can fit my groceries. I love the heated seats, stereo, ease of driving. I like that is large enough for passengers but not too large for parking in small spaces. It accommodates our family

- Mary M

It is a very good family vehicle. It will get us anywhere we want to go.

2009 Dodge Journey

It is a very reliable vehicle even with the high miles. It can get really good gas mileage for its age. A very comfortable ride. The only thing I wish was different was the height of the vehicle in the back and storage size.

- Roger D

It is a great family car. It is safe for someone with children that will be in it. I love the space that it has also.

2009 Dodge Journey

I am a mom of 3 young children all in car seats. I love that All 3 of my kids can fit in one row but I also have a 3rd row of needed. The trunk space is great even with the 3rd row in use. And the car just looks nice.

- Ashley H

That it drives smoothly and gets great gas mileage.

2009 Dodge Journey

I love that it is SUV l have more for everything l hate it has blind spots were seat rest are for me. I have lot of hidden compartments. It is easy to drive great gas mileage. Does not take much to fill it up.

- Dorothy H

It's a really great family vehicle. Extra storage space under the back cargo that is super helpful!

2009 Dodge Journey

I absolutely love my journey! I have three kids who all require car seats. It's a little bit of a tight fit, but they are all strapped and they have plenty of legroom! Great family vehicle and also great on gas!

- Megan C

My SUV is both comfortable and economical to operate.

2009 Dodge Journey

It's perfect-sized SUV, allows me to carry anything I might need. It gets excellent mileage. It sits high enough that I can see in traffic but not so high that it's difficult to get in and out of the vehicle.

- Ella L

Reliable.. Smooth ride.. Good mileage..

2009 Dodge Journey

I like the size of the vehicle and it gets good mileage. However, the car seems to be cheaply built. It has had multiple mechanical issues and has been in the shop several times over the last year.

- Denise A

great sports suv, fits 7 people, compact and easy to drive

2009 Dodge Journey

I have a family of 5 almost 6, so storage space is a problem, but it gets good gas mileage and I love the style. I don't like the way the middle seats flip forward to get to the third row seating.

- Maranda L

It is a decent car with lots of room but overall engine, not great.

2009 Dodge Journey

I have had the car since 2009. Once it hit 40, 000 miles, I had problems with the water pump (three times), timing belt (twice) and reservoir tank (3 times). It is still going at 150, 000 miles.

Love that it had a 3rd row 1

2009 Dodge Journey

Th Dodge Journey has many issues when it comes to the horn, automatic door locks, wipers, keyless entry. I didn't have problems in the 1st year and now they randomly go off or just don't work.

- Kara H

Its sporty and a lot of room.

2009 Dodge Journey

Starter is a problem. Issues with the battery and that's it. The vehicle runs pretty good. Although the frame isn't as strong as a metal frame. Its all together a decent vehicle v.

- Michelle R

It is paid for, and I have had very little trouble with it in all these years.

2009 Dodge Journey

My Journey is very adaptable and is very useful in that the seats in the rear fold down and I have a large cargo area. It also has several tech options such as rear view camera.


It is dependable and easy to drive.

2009 Dodge Journey

I like my vehicle because of the space it has. I like it because it's a SUV so I can haul most things. The only reason I can think of not liking my vehicle is the gas mileage.

- Patricia M

Unsafe visibility could cause accident. Have had several near misses.

2009 Dodge Journey

Super quiet, comfortable, reliable and fairly economical. Not good for visibility, particularly when backing up. Super wonderful braking system and excellent cargo space.


How well the bass beats when a good song comes on.

2009 Dodge Journey

For one the engine light is always on, and the air conditioner does not work. Also could use a little more room for people over 6'. On the plus side, the bass is amazing.

- Jake D

It gets great gas mileage.

2009 Dodge Journey

I like that it has 3rd row seating. It also has a lot of storage space... I do not like that there isn't a lot of trunk space if you do have the 3rd row seating in use.

- Melissa C

The Dodge Journey is safe and has plenty of room for passengers and equipment.

2009 Dodge Journey

I like that it has plenty of room to bring my child and a few other people places. I like that the back has plenty of room. I don't like that the insurance is so high.

- Art R

The car has a defect. But all Dodge and jeeps could have this problem.

2009 Dodge Journey

It has a factory defect. So sometime the car wont turn over and you have to put it in neutral to ignite the engine. For the type of vehicle it has good gas mileage.

- Lindsay R

I have had to replace the tires 3 times. The heating system does not work well.

2009 Dodge Journey

I like the look and size of the vehicle. It has given me nothing but problems with the heating and cooling system. The tires wear out on this vehicle too easily.

- Shantelle F

Fits a wheelchair in back

2009 Dodge Journey

It is very comfortable and has plenty of room for passengers or cargo. Has worked great for a couple of road trips, one of which was an overnight trip.

- Jefrey E

Feel the heat of big grey.

- Telly M

It is my only vehicle. I do not have any other means of transportation.

I like my vehicle over all. There are a few things that I dislike, such as, not enough room for my family, and the fuel mileage has started dropping.

- Danny W

It is a Very smooth ride.

2009 Dodge Journey

It is an incredibly smooth ride and handles well on the road. There's great storage options too. I just dislike that it looks like a minivan...

- Kim T

It works well for me and I prefer it over a van but would like something new.

2009 Dodge Journey

I like the size and color of my vehicle. I don't like how many problems it has had. I don't like how it drives on hills.

- Paige N

It's sturdy, and runs good for the most part. Oh, the low tire info should specify which tire

2009 Dodge Journey

I like that it has 3 rows of seats. I don't care for the low headroom, or the fact that there's no interior hatch button
