Great for a family of four.
2012 Dodge Journey SXT
Initially when I purchased the Dodge Journey, I was thrilled the vehicle was going to give me the much needed trunk space and seating with our growing family.
The Journey has a third row which is great it folds down and gives you more trunk space, which allows for more groceries and definitely fits a stroller. The nice thing about the third row is it folds down into two sections. So you can either fold down the whole third row or just half of the third row. This allows for someone to sit in the third row and gives you space for groceries and things. As my family grew the third row became much needed seating. The space the third row gives you is great if your a child but as an adult it's a bit small, I'm 5'1 and I'm not so comfortable sitting back there. Also by using the third row the trunk space reduces greatly, a stroller is harder to fit specially if you have a large one.
This vehicle has had major car repairs, we are talking a few thousand dollars. We've had issues with the electrical, ex. bluetooth, the touchscreen (which from time to time freezes), there was a recall on our vehicle, which is always scary. All in all not exactly what I expected, I believe this car is great for a family of four, you will fit comfortable the second row is spacious. You can definitely benefit from the third row folding down to give you that much needed trunk space.
