I love having a USB port built into the car.

I always wanted a small SUV. A car big enough for the family but cute enough for me. I looked at the journeys for a while before getting one. We go on long trips, so the fact that I am comfortable in my seat is a plus. I have room for everyone, with the 7 passenger seats. And behind the front seat on the floor, we have two compartments to hold items. We can even put ice in there and use it as a cooler. Which I think is pretty neat. When I go grocery shopping, which is often without all the kids,I put my seats down and I have plenty of space for my groceries to fit neatly. And when we go on long trips we have the luggage racks at the top to strap my luggage bag up to. So again, plenty of room and space. I also love the USB port that is in my car, so I don't have to worry about losing the car charger plug that goes into the lighter. I just need my cord. The child lock and the ability to lock the windows, well,that is a big help for me. We have two troubled boys that we just adopted. And they will open the doors while we are driving. So the child lock doors are such a blessing. And the windows will go up and down unless locked from the front of the car. My journey drives so smooth,it's always a nice quiet ride. And its red, which is my favorite color. Need I say more. This is a great choice for a family vehicle. Oh, and car seats fit fine in both the middle and the back seat.

Great family vehicle, lots of space, easy on the bank account.

I love my journey! I have had my car for almost two years and have not had any issues. My car gets really good gas mileage and has the power to pull everything I need since we purchased a custom hitch for it. The first two rows are comfortable and the third row seems to work for the kids, but I am not sure I could sit back there for a long trip. It is very convenient though, having the space. It has about four cubbies for storage in the floor and the front seat which is very convenient with kids and long trips. Living in the mountains, I wish I purchased a journey that was 4 wheel drive. A couple things that lower my points are the blind spots in the rear and the noise when the rear windows are rolled down. Other than that, I love my car. The blind spot could be fixed with a backup camera. It has all the features that one needs, such as cruise control and volume and channel control on the steering wheel. It also has ac/heater controls for the rear which is nice.

Pros/cons of Dodge Journey.

The Journey is the best price for a 7 seater. Although space is limited especially when you try to fit tall men in it. Several electronic features a plus. Map outdated quickly. Hidden compartments and coolers a plus in this make/model. Doors have slots that go deep and items get down in them which is hard to retrieve. Steering wheel has audio controls which makes it safer driving. The back has additional storage compartment which is great when car is full of people. I found it only offers a 1 year battery for this make and model and the battery is behind the driver's front tire which is not convenient for a simple fix. My Dodge has had 2 recalls in 2 years of having it. Parts for the vehicle can only be bought through dealer not AutoZone, discount auto type places. Making appointments for service has been difficult. After making an appointment you still wait. I replaced 2 air filters and then had the oil changed. They marked air filters as needed replacing.
