Fantastic vehicle for family of four!

2012 Dodge Journey R/T

Our Dodge Journey has been fantastic for our family. I love the space in back and how flexible it is to use 3rd row seating when we need it. The has been reliable and fun to drive, and we have had no issues with it in the 18 months we've owned it. I also love the little storage Cubbies underneath the feet of the back seat and in the trunk My only gripe is the touch screen controls for climate and audio. The touch screen is small and old, it precedes almost all smartphones and it shows. Physical buttons would have been much better.

The Dodge Journey is a very nice ride, spacious and low maintenance

2012 Dodge Journey R/T

I completely enjoy my Dodge Journey and find it well worth the money I pay. It is very reliable and economical. I have drove over 85,000 miles in the last year and a half and the only maintenance I have had is basic use from oil changes on a regular basis, brakes, rotors and tires. I am very pleased with the Dodge Journey including the appearance. The tow package was a nice addition to carry by bikes and a cargo rail on top. I am very impressed with my Dodge Journey and appreciative.

Great car for real life adventures

2012 Dodge Journey R/T

Great, dependable, comfortable and very flexible car. Roomy and easy to keep clean. Only wish it got better mileage. We use it for road trips, camping, shopping and work commute. The back seats are too small for adults and rarely used. It's easy to get the car serviced at any garage.

- Ana C

Comfortable all wheel drive vehicle.

2012 Dodge Journey R/T

Great features like heated seats and autostart. Love the all wheel drive in the winter. Bluetooth is great. Heated mirrors are also a huge plus. Plenty of extra storage. Easy to drive and to park. Pretty good gas mileage. Nothing had acted up or broken so far. Comfortable vehicle.

Dodge Journey Family Vehicle

2012 Dodge Journey R/T

R/T model, great 3rd row seating or large trunk room when seats are down, touch screen, sunroof, decent gas mileage, leather interior, heated seats, satellite radio capable, great features on dash all electronic. Con a clicking noise clicks randomly in the passenger glove box

- Lauren W

Comfy, family friendly dodge journey with a few quirks.

2012 Dodge Journey R/T

My vehicle drives well. The breaks are efficient. The interior is well designed and very comfortable to sit in. It has heated seats and cruise control. I wish it had heated seats. Every once in awhile we do experience issues with the starter though, which can be frustrating!
