Heated seats and you can connect to your Bluetooth throughout your speakers.

Vehicle drives perfect it holds gas good if we are in pain we have the heated seats and we have 3 rows of seats in a vehicle and you have the Bluetooth to connect to your cell phone for iPods there is plenty of storage underneath your seats we have window wipers in the back to see out back by the window when it rains the windows in the second row are tinted and we get very good gas mileage on the highway and we have chrome rims the ac is perfect it keeps you cool and if you do not want to use the third row or the second row you can lay the seats down and have plenty of room for your groceries and if you are going on a road trip it is very comfortable and the stereo is very good too so overall I would recommend this vehicle to anybody.

Dodge Journey. Dad mobile of the present.

Vehicle is in top shape after 90000 miles. Continuing with average maintenance is a breeze and I have not had any worries regarding anything out of the ordinary. My Journey is completely comfortable for my family of six anywhere we go. It has a particular love for the German autobahn, although the manufacturers governor spoils some of the sport. I would recommend this car for the average dad as a sporty version of a soccer mom van. It continually gets the job done regardless of the situation. I have moved and lived in this vehicle in varying situations and still can not find a flaw with the creature comforts it provides consistently. 10 out of 10 would buy again.

Great car for young families.

We bought our Dodge Journey brand new. We needed a safe car for a two hour long commute with a preschooler. We also have two nephews who are involved in baseball and band. The car has a lot of hidden storage that is very helpful. The boys love the "way back" seats. The storage when the seats are folded down is very nice. I can fit our camp chairs in the back even when the seats are up; which is great when we are hauling multiple kids to ballgames. I love the conversation mirror above the rearview mirror which allows me to see everything in the back seat. The control panel is user friendly. Overall a great car.

- Michelle R

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.

- Sierra H

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.

- Heather C

The extended warranty was recommended due to poor transmission quality.

I am extremely pleased the performance of my journey. It is very comfortable and easy to drive. I am satisfied with the amount of power that my car has. I did have a problem with my car in the past. I had to get both front control arms replaced and luckily I had purchased an extended warranty when I bought my car. I paid a $100 deductible to get my car fixed. If I didn't have the warranty, it would have costed me $1200. 00. Also the transmission does not always shift properly. Overall I enjoy driving my journey.

- Terry M

mileage. My favorite car buy any means but I do like the push start button and the auto unlock in the door handle when u have your kees

I love the looks of my car but not so much the performance, it is super slow has horrible blind spots and has issue with the wiring(for example cruze console won't work) had way too many recalls. I just got it back from the shop and am still having problems with the air pressure monitor. I have fixed to many parts on it for them to still work,the interior is falling apart( plastic around seats and door) not enough luggage space so not convenient for traveling with kids and not the best gas mileage.

- Caitlynn S

Why to never buy a dodge even if it looks like a great deal. Will end up being a headache for times to come .

Have had problems with this car from day one. Have had the heads on the motor replaced three times at dealer in a year and a half. Have to do brake changes on it every 10,000 miles. More motor work every couple thousand miles with replacing rocker arms and lifters. And now the transmission mounts have broke and broke the transmission. And the car is not beat on is well taken care of oil change every 3,000 miles. You fix one thing and next week another problem. Never buy a DODGE again.

- Randy D

The Dodge Journey, the less obvious mom mobile.

My Dodge is a 4 cylinder and has no power going up hills or having to increase the speed to get on the highways. The car is considered a crossover but feels more like a car. The third row seating is very convenient but does not allow for a lot of legroom. The car came with a built in DVD player which is a big perk. The keyless entry is very convenient but it is costly to change the battery and if not done by a dealer the key fob could easily be damaged.

- Kim M

Looking for a great family car??

I really enjoy my Dodge Journey. The folding third row seat is very handy. I have 4 children and of course at least one has to have a friend with us. It also is great to be able to have all that room in the back when I get a big haul at Sam's. My husband and I even traveled with all 4 of our children to California from Oklahoma and it was actually roomy. If you are looking for a vehicle to fit your families needs. I highly recommend the Dodge Journey.

- Tara B

I love the dual air conditioner system. It comes in handy when me and my husband are driving together, since he likes the heat and I like the cold.

The car seats seven people which comes in handy when me and my friends and child want to go somewhere together. The seats are very comfortable and the air conditioner works very well in both back two rows of the car. And when it's just me my husband and son wanting to take our dog somewhere we can easily attach her to the hooks in the back of the car when we put the third row of seats down so I know she can't run away when I open the back hatch.

- Vanessa M

Our family car is awesome, we would recommend it to all.

It is been very good for me, I have had it for three years and am still finding neat little features that it has. Also I like the third row seating, with the grandkids it is nice and when we go shopping all the seats fold down and we can pile in the groceries or whatever we want. It is good in the snow as well, we live in the backwoods and it is hard to go in and out, this car has brought us home every time with no trouble.

- Debra S

non-minivan mommy mobile seats 7

My Journey has been very reliable, the 3rd row seating is great when I want to take the kids friends along for an adventure, the gas mileage is much better than I had anticipated for a vehicle of this size (have 28 highway 18 around town) I have seen as high as 35 mpg on a road trip up the west coast, I would highly recommend a Journey to anyone whom needs occasional additional seating as well as occasional cargo space.

- Ashley A

First in love with Dodge again.

The vehicle seats up to 7 people, it is great for family trips w/entertainment system, great audio, ease of drive, great on gas, space for luggage, multiple seat configurations, up to date in technology, and providing to the needs of every member of the family. To me, it is the total package. As far as issues, I am waiting for the punchline, I do keep it up to date and care for it as a baby, love my Dodge.

- Jeff R

Battery is located in a weird position and is hard to change

While the size is perfect for my family, the car is not comfortable. The ride is rough even with new tires,shocks, etc. There have been numerous issues with steering alignment going out, leaks from the roof and doors. The location of the battery (behind the drivers wheel well) made it very difficult to get my battery changed when it needed to be. Overall I would not recommend this model to people.

- Brandy G

Comfort and technology combine.

The Dodge journey is the perfect family car. Compact enough and yet spacious inside, it provides comfort and necessity into one package. Touch screen, Bluetooth, rear assist with backup cameras, and multiple plug in types create the perfect technology based vehicle. There are also a few sneaky compartments that make storage a breeze. This is the best vehicle to own and I am so excited I have mine!

- Morgan H

Basic and reliable without all the frills.

It has been very reliable. It was a rental car before I bought it so I was the first owner. Therefore the warranty transferred to me, which came in handy when the transmission needs rebuilt. No other problems. Only regular maintenance. I wish I could afford some upgrades. It is very basic with no upgraded features. It is comfortable with the third row for extra friends if necessary.

- Tanya S

Spacious family vehicle with lots of storage.

My Journey has been a great vehicle! It has many great features, including leather heated seats, sunroof, all-wheel drive, Sirius XM radio, and electric seats. It drives smoothly and has plenty of room for storage with the third row seats down. One thing that I wish my vehicle had would be rear camera capability. It looks like it has this available in some models, but not all.

- Heidi R

Not as great as it looks.

Engine started slipping after just a couple of years. Lots of other engine issues. The remote lock/unlock does not always work correctly even with fresh batteries. I wish it had better gas mileage & a bigger gas tank. Also the 3rd row of seats are pretty much useless. Even a small child cannot fit back there and if you use it then you lose all your "trunk" space.

- Patty L

Dodge Journeys are very spacious reliable!

I love my Dodge Journey! I have had it for a little over a year now and have not had any issues whatsoever. It does very well in all weather conditions and is extremely reliable. I love that my Journey is push to start because more often than not my keys are in the bottom of my purse. With having two kids still in car seats, it is very spacious and comfortable!

- Rebecca V

It has 3rd row seating, great pic up and great smooth ride.

Love my SUV. It has the comfort of a luxury car. I have a 6 chk with great pick up speed. Drives smoothly. Has the opinion 3rd row seating that come in very handy when the grandkids and I go on an adventure! No one has to stay home nor do we have to take 2 vehicles. Had my 2012 journey for 6 years. Had no issues with it rides as great as when I first bought it!

- Carolyn M

Amazing features! Little complaints.

I love this car. Its roomy has the option for a 3rd row, but we took the extra storage space. Leather interior is easy to clean. There are storage compartments everywhere. Nice big screen for the radio/backup camera. The software is a little glitchy when connecting using Bluetooth. And I am constantly having issues with my back bumper being loose.

- Marcy B

Great Journey for growing family.

I haven't noticed any issues with my vehicle. . . It gets good gas mileage and comes with nice features. There is a 3rd row so for a big family it helps as well as storage places all over the vehicle. I like that my vehicle tells me when it is time for a oil change or air in my tires or if someone is not buckled up. . . Those things really help!

- Brandy K

Transmission issue keep an eye on it. Gas mileage is much better when filling up versus getting a little at a time.

It has a comfortable smooth ride. It does have a common transmission issue that generally happens within the warranty (or extended) for this and a couple other year models that does require the car be in the shop for multiple days. The repair does work long term (hopefully this gets worked out). It is roomy. I do wish it had other amenities.

- Leslie L

Dependable, safe, great gas mileage and I personally love all the storage.

I have had no problems with my Dodge. I love this SUV. Its roomy has lots of storage more than most SUV. It's great on gas drives wonderful on freeways. It's very comfortable for long distance trips. View is really great for seeing on coming and traffic. Children safety locks on windows and doors. It is just dependable and a safe vehicle.

- Emily A

Dodge Journey, not minivan!

I have had many problems with the electrical features of it. Sometimes the radio will not have sound. I do like the space the vehicle entails. I many people call it a minivan and I am still having a hard time getting over that. I love the keyless entry. The battery is in a weird spot and the fences on the fronts clips come off frequently.

- Amanda D

Didn't think I would be comfortable driving a large (larger than a car) vehicle.

Have only had one repair to brake lines. It is very easy to drive & I can load a lot of groceries & my grandsons stuff without trouble. Very good in winter weather also. Think Dodge is under rated & people should consider when shopping SUVs. Window control are in a hood place as I have arthritis & other SUVs controls were uncomfortable.

- Barbara W

I do love the push button start.

It always starts, has lots of pep, driver and passenger temperature controls, great radio, lots of extra lights -- one that comes on when you open the door, lighting under door to the floor helps me see in the garage while getting in, push button start so I do not need the keys all the time. Just too much to mention!

- Kay R

Bluetooth issue but otherwise solid vehicle.

Comfortable. However has had issue with the battery going dead whenever the car was not driven in a 24 hour period - this took a long time to diagnosis as an issue with the Bluetooth draining the battery. Had to disconnect it or replace it at considerable expense with no guarantee that it wouldn't happen again.

- Angela H

That's it is a very nice model just make sure you look very carefully when buying used cars

I like that the vehicle is very spacious and can adjust the seats. I also like how the AC works very well in the car and how most of everything has a well descriptors button and it's a push start car. The only thing I don't like about the used car I got was how it cuts off sometimes in the middle of the road.

- Omaria M

Ninety percent satisfied I would buy the same car make and model.

The side mirrors are at a bad place it interferes with looking left or right the car is very comfortable and really not much mechanical problems highly recommend it. The door locks do not lock immediately the computer should lock them immediately it also should have handles to help you in and out of the car.

- Norma L

Terrible gas mileage, otherwise a great family vehicle.

My Dodge Journey runs great, but gets terrible gas mileage. I get around 17 mph tops driving around town, maybe around 22 mph on the highway. It has enough room and the back seats are easy to lay flat. I like the compartments underneath the passenger seat, the floors in the back seat, and the trunk area.

- Ann S

Third seat problems dislike.

The Dodge Journey is really good for you, cool, gas mileage is not bad, the front seats and center seats are comfortable but I hate fussing with the third seat, it is hard to get in and out of the third seat, does not have much legroom, and it is hard for anybody that is an adult size to get back there.

- Anita C

Daycare provider for toddlers

I love the space and options i have when needing to transport people and groceries etc. There is plenty of room for storage. Extra storage below the floor. I just have the issue of my window switches going out to be a huge problem. But heat and air are great car drives smooth and gets decent gas mileage

- Amy B

The Journey is a great family vehicle.

The only problems we have encountered is that it requires routine maintenance. Can't postpone it for very long. it's been a great commuter and family vehicle. great gas mileage. Fits the family of five with plenty of space. we really like the extra storage in the floor and in the dash.

- Elise A

2012 Dodge Journey SUV, lt.

Honestly, for people saying Dodge is a band brand to buy for vehicles, I was skeptic to get a Dodge Journey. By far my favorite vehicle I have ever owned, and when I am ready to get a new one, I will for sure be getting another Dodge Journey, only newer. I haven't had any issues whatsoever.

- Brooke K

I really liked the cars and would recommend it for anyone who wants to show off.

It was good for a while, but those are not the type of cars for performance. It is a great family car. The price of the cars is good too, but they do not resale well. If you are looking into buying those cars, it's better to buy a Toyota or Honda if you want it to last and save money.

- Joseph T

It is a great family vehicle.

Our car is very reliable, easy to repair if anything goes wrong, it seats seven so it accommodates a growing family. We have had it over two years and haven't had many problems except finding proper sized tires. They are a rare size and therefore hard to come by at a reasonable price.

- Ashlee C

It is drives very well and I never have any issues with it.

I love the size of my vehicle. I love my big screen radio it is my favorite. I also love the way it drives. I dislike that it does not have that third row. I dislike that it is not white or black it is grey which is not my favorite color. I dislike that is does not have built in TVs.

- Ashlee C

Love my Journey, great vehicle for your Journey.

I love my vehicle. It is great on gas and drive great. It's very roomy and a great vehicle to travel or just run errands in. The push button start is pretty cool and convenient. The third row seating provides room for more passengers are can be put down when you need extra storage.

- Mary T

Good on gas and is a eight seater.

The Dodge Journey is spacious and good on gas. I have only had it about 6 months and I really enjoy. Have taken several trips and rides smoothly and in great comfort. Even when it needs oil change its not to expensive. I would recommend this car as a family car to everyone.

- Stella M

Seriously for the love of Dodge!

It is a great family car. Very comfortable for those long trips you take with the family. Very safe for family who have children. It has 3 row seating for up to 7 people which is pretty awesome. The one I currently have has cloth seats and GPS. The car drives very smoothly.

- Jessica S

It's very reliable transportation. It's roomy and easily holds plenty of cargo.

It's easy to drive and it handles well on the road. The seats are very comfortable on long road trips. The heater gets warm quickly and the seat warmers are nice too. My only complaint is we have built in gps and it has to be updated every two years and is quite expensive.

- Gail R

it's a 7 seater and it is very reliable.

I like how it is very spacious on the interior. It is a 7 seater and the seats in the back can be put down to create a large space like a trunk or to simply lay down in. Very reliable and no engine troubles whatsoever so far. On about 200k mileage and works like new still.

- Joshua W

The ultimate family car!!

I absolutely love my car! My favorite features are the installed boosters seating in the back. It makes my life so much easier because if my son is not in the car I can just put them down and keep on moving. The coolers in the ground are also excellent for long trips.

- Natasha C

The most important thing about my vehicle is that it is dependable.

I love the color which is silver. I have not had any major mechanical issues since buying my vehicle, only regular maintenance. It has good gas mileage. It is comfortable to drive. The only thing that I dislike is the black interior color but I can live with that.

- Shelia P

It has a nice sleek design to it even as a 2012.

Performance is good, comfort is ok, but a bit like a truck. I like that the back seats fold down and that there is storage on the back area floor as well as in the very back on the vehicle. I like that it has a rack and that it is taller than a regular vehicle.

- Daisy A

It's a great car, I love driving it. The third row of seats is handy to have.

I love the third row seating it has! I also love that it's more of an SUV than a van, and that 3 car seats fit across the backseat. It is rather difficult to get into the third row of seats, with our carseats in you have to climb through the back of the car.

- Elizabeth M

Dodge Journey not you average SUV.

Great performance its spacious and stylish. Could be better on gas and the breaks could be a little bigger, but overall very happy with my SUV. My only disappointment if I had one to give is that Dodge never turned the Journey into an srt or hellcat edition.

- Edwin S

The one most important thing that people should know is that it has a huge amount of storage space in back, especially when the back seats are folded down.

I love my vehicle! It's comfortable on the inside with plenty of legroom in the front and back. It has tons of storage space in the back too, and that is very important to me because I help an elderly family member with groceries and it can hold everything.

- Carol S

It has coolers in both of the back floorboards that are really neat!

I love my Dodge Journey! It rides good is fully loaded and I wouldn't trade it for anything. I have had my Journey for 3 yrs and it has been very dependable. I have satellite radio power seats. It has a lot of hidden compartments that really come in handy.

- Christy H

I love being able to carry a large group of friends.

My vehicle is a most comfortable riding vehicle. Everyone loves riding in it. When I had a problem with the key fob, my vehicle needed a battery. It sits up high for good visual driving. Elderly people find it easy to get out of it because you step down.

- Ruby R

There are plenty of seats for my big family.

Every year around the same time the crankshaft breaks. We have thankfully figured out how to fix it ourselves but it took awhile and when it does first break. I am stranded wherever and have to wait for someone to come get me to fix it. Very frustrating

- Paige W

Right now I do not know any interesting detail.

haven't had any problems yet. I like that it has a motion sensor when u reverse. We bought it as a used vehicle in 2016. For right now the battery is still ok but we need to check to see when it expires. Hate that battery is near the bottom of the car.

- Florence O

It is easy to own and drive.

Back window could be larger, road noise could be reduced, the carpet texture could be easier to vacuum.. I like the room in the back seat. The simplicity of the controls, size of the car, car won't lock if key is inside, handles well on the road.

- Colleen S

It's larger on the inside than it looks from the outside.

It has room for the family and all of the kids' stuff but not so big that I feel I'm driving a large vehicle. For a crossover, it seems to get decent gas mileage. Running the air conditioning seems to drain some of the power from the engine.

- Jennifer H

It is one of the smoothest driving cars I have ever risen in and it has a lot of hidden storage compartments

The journey rides smoothly even over bumps and has plenty of space for our family of 4 plus a dog. We have about 140,000 miles on it and have not had to do anything other than normal maintenance. This vehicle has been more than reliable!

- Melinda S

I personally feel it is not very good with gas mileage.

It's okay. It wasn't my first choice but it was in our budget. It is comfortable and has nice features like touchscreen and then temperature control for one side different from the other side. It has a good amount of space in the back.

- Julie E

My Dodge journey is reliable.

The reliability of my vehicle is very good. I have not had any problems with it except the gas mileage is a little lacking depending on how you drive it. The comfort and features are all really nice and the vehicle rides really smooth.

- David B

It has a lot of space. It is good for traveling with big family.

I have loved this vehicle. It is spacious good conditions. It is good for a family. It has given us some issues but it is because it is a second hand vehicle and the past owners did not took care of it. But other than that is perfect.

- Natalie S

Seating for seven in mid size suv

I love that the suv is mid size. The back is a little tight so if you always need the extra space I'd go with a bigger suv. The year I have seems like there are a lot of recalls. But over all works great for me and gas is not bad.

- Precious S

It is spacious and reliable. There are several amenities that we enjoy.

I enjoy the space for storage as well as the third row for seat. I wish the vehicle has Bluetooth accessibility. In winter months, I enjoy the heated seats. The kids enjoy being able to control the heat and air for the back rows.

- Daphne W

The one most important thing people should know about my car is that It is not the best on gas.

I like that I have third row seating, but I dislike the fact that I have no storage space in the back when the third seat is up. I love the storage spots under the floorboards. I dislike the fact that my lights are not automatic

- Sara R

Has floor space in the back floor boards

I do not like the battery location. Nor the transmission fluid check deal because you have to take to a dealership. The heating And Cooling system always turns on. An limited on back seat room def not for kids with long legs

- Wanda D

It is reliable and I haven't had any issues with it so far.

My Dodge Journey is all black and I love the body style. I like the size of it. It's not too big or too small. I really like having the compartments in the floor where I can hide things or put ice in it. It's good on gas.

- Whitnie A

my car is very easy to handle and the controls are within reach which makes it very nice.

I love my journey because it drives like a car and it can hold seven people just like the large suvs. it's also affordable and very comfortable. have not had any trouble with it so far. i would definitely buy another one.

- cynthia l

It is an SUV but rides like a luxury car.

I have not had any problems. The engine performance is great. V6 engine has great pick up speed when needed, engine runs smooth and quiet. Very comfortable seating with lots of room. 3rd seating. Lots of storage room.

- Carol M

It has all wheel drive, not four wheel.

I like the space and the radio system. I also really like how smooth the ride is. I do not like the blind spots in the car, and hate the way the seats are designed (I feel low and far away no matter how I set it up).

- Rebecca P

It runs well. And is a reliable car. Expensive to work on.

I think we overpaid. It is a nice vehicle but hard to work on. Have had several issues with the battery. Changing to was a pain. You have to remove the tire. Also it is a keyless start. And it only came with one fob

- Olivia W

Fun, unexpected feature are the little ice chests in the floor of the back seat.

Very reliable, economical, comfortable. Rear seating heat/air conditioning that makes it good for our dogs. Easy to get in and out of. Bluetooth radio really helps with hands free calls, listening to audio books.

- Jill S

Too many blind spots, overheats a lot, but is a very comfortable ride.

There are too many blind spots. The back window is too small and the third row seats have to be down in order to see clearly. It also overheats very easily. Comfortably fits four adults and three small children.

- Ally B

Even though its all wheel drive it still gets really good gas mileage.

I really like it. The only complains are I had to replace a power steering hose and it took over 4 months to get it and now that there's over 100k miles it's about time to start thinking about trading it in.

- David H

Excellent Gas Saver Highway Vehicle

I love the Dodge Journey. I think this is a very nice vehicle, and I get excellent gas mileage on the highway. I like the fact that it uses E85 gas because bad prices are high and I save a lot of money.

- Evelyn G

Dodge Journey is definitely a family car

Haven't had no problem with my vehicle. I love that it's an on start, the Seats warm up so during winter it's really convenient. It has built in booster seats for my kids and the third row is spacious.

- Adriana B

The most important thing about my car is that it is safe.

My vehicle is okay. I do not like that it does not have bluetooth or a backup camera. It also gets crappy gas mileage. I do like that it is safe and has a lot of room for passengers or to haul things.

- Ashley M

It is fun to drive and has lots of storage space for passengers and luggage.

I enjoy the room of the vehicle. It is spacious and has lots of storage space. I am not fond of the blind spots though in the front and back of the vehicle. I also wish it got better gas mileage.

- Kevin S

This vehicle is very economical and perfect for trips

It is very comfortable, gets good mileage, and looks nice. I don't like the way the back window always gets dirty and the way cool air comes in around your feet when heat is off in cooler weather

- Connie A

It has a build in alpine speaker system in it and it sounds amazing.

I love the build in navi system with Bluetooth. I really love the heated seats especially in the winter. I don't care for the gas guzzler when not driving on highway. But overall I love my car.

- Angie P

SUV youth sports hauler (my sports car)

At 116,000 miles haven't had many major issues with the car. Transmission and radio issue that was covered under warranty. Reliable car, fits 7 people (smaller people in the rear only).

- Linda S

The driver side seat is broken so you cannot move it forward or back.

I like that it does not break down on me. Do not like the radio because it does not work half the time. Do not like that the display has gone on it which controls temperature and vents.

- Rebecca V

Great family vehicle with hidden extra storage space.

The Dodge journey is a fun and roomy vehicle. It is perfect for a family. It has extra cargo space and space for small road trips. It is comfortable and the v6 has great pick up power.

- Ryan W

My car has lots of room for my family.

I love my vehicle. It is safe and dependable and it never has any problems and it fits my kids and there car seats perfectly. It also is great with all our road trips my family takes.

- Alexa M

It's not reliable for long trips, and is likely to break down

It's big, doesn't have good gas mileage and isn't reliable for long trips. It doesn't have a working radio or air conditioning. But the seats are pretty nice, and it has a heater.

- Adam W

Great family car! Seats 7

Comfortably seats 5. It seats 7, but the back 2 seats aren't comfortable for an adult. Also, if you have 7 people in it, you have no storage. It's a great car, and very reliable.

- Sabrina O

This vehicle is flex fuel compatible. Using e85 can save you 20 to 40 cents a gallon

The journey has a very quiet cabin. you can barely hear the Motor running The ride is smooth and comfortable. Tire size is the biggest problem, 19 inch is an odd expensive size

- Kim B

It gets anywhere you want to go like over the mountains.

There is not anything I don't like about it. Because it's an excellent vehicle and I absolutely love it. I would not trade it for anything else because I've never owned one.

- Stephanie S

The Dodge Journey is a lemon

My vehicle has been nothing but trouble since the day I drove it off the lot. It has window problems,transmission problems and it seems like it has never really ran right.

- Joshua T

That it has been a very reliable car

The only reason I don't like it as much is because it is getting older and my family is growing and I wish it was roomy are so that my daughters could be more comfortable

- Eri G

Dodge journey is an ok car
