Has some flaws but love it anyway.

My Dodge Journey is my favorite vehicle so far. I love the push to start and passive entry, but my key fob malfunctioned about a month after purchase. Replacement battery was expensive and stopped working within another month. The auto trans is slow to switch. I am super afraid of it dropping while in drive. Gas is not bad. 35 Bucks lasts almost 2 weeks for a full tank as a daily driver. Very roomy inside. 3Rd row is great for 2 front facing car seats. Definitely a good choice for a temporary mom mobile, but I think I'll be looking into something a little less stressful.

Great car! Nice features.

My Journey has been very reliable and for the most part is a very smooth ride. It is quiet and has several nice features such as the information center that tells you things that are going on with the car like tire pressure and fuel economy. The thing that is the most bothersome to me is the head rest because it seems to push my head forward and hurts my neck at times. Also the airbag in my passenger side headrest needs service. I love all the storage areas in the car and that there can be third row seating if needed. Great car!

- Amanda F

It is a basic car that transports from place to place, not very comfortable.

This vehicle has potential; however, it is a little small for my needs. With two children and a third on the way, we need more room in the back seat for car seats. It will not fit three car seats across comfortably. Also, the seats are not comfortable for a longer trip. We purchased a lower trim and I never thought to check if a recently made car had cruise control. . . This one does not! It has served Its purpose for the last couple of years by transporting us from place to place, but it would not be on my list again.
