Editor's Overview

With its sub-$21,000 starting price, the Dodge Journey stands apart from midsize SUV competitors such as the Kia Sorento, Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander as the value leader, yet still offers nifty cargo features and seating for up to seven. Even when dressed in higher trims and with the recommended V6, the Journey offers a lot of value.

Dodge Journey smooth and comfortable ride!

I was looking for a reliable and affordable vehicle with a third row. As most people who have looked when you add that third row the price skyrockets. Then I came across a beautiful white Dodge Journey. First it looks so sharp I thought well this will be to expensive. I hope in the beautiful black interior with the touch screen oh wow I thought no way can I afford this and then the third row everything I dreamed of and more. And it was so affordable!! I was so thrilled I know have had it for almost 2 years and have had no problems at all! It drives smooth and fits everyone when needed. I love my Dodge Journey-!!

This Dodge Journey is an awesome vehicle!

I really love my car. The only thing I would do different is - I would have gotten the rear camera if I had known it would be difficult to see when backing up. All other features are wonderful! I love that I can easily see that my tires have the right amount of air in them or that they need air. I can see how many miles I can drive before I need gas and my seats are comfortable for long trip. I got it to transport my 2 nieces, nephew and my son and it is perfect for any family. I would definitely buy another Dodge Journey in the future and I recommend it to anyone looking for a small SUV.

- Pam B

It gets us to where ever it is that I need to be.

There really is not much problems with the car. In fact, the Dodge Journey’s are high in demand right now. Performance wise, the pick up is pretty slow. But for the most part, it will function well, just like any other car, if you take care of it as if it is your newborn baby. Very reliable mini SUV. My seats are leather so I had seat covers specifically made for my seats. The electronics in my car were the best. I love the Bluetooth the most. The automatic connection for the phone to my car was so convenient! It has reverse sensors and camera. I love my car and it loves me!
