Reviews for Dodge Journey

Not for a family with car seat requirements

We purchased the Journey because we we're having our 4th child. We have 10, 8, and 3 year olds. We knew the "trunk" really had no room for cargo, but went for the family size accommodations. However after having 2 car seats, we quickly realized how inconvenient it was. Getting the boys in the third row was so annoying. Now they enter through the "trunk". When my mother in law visited, we took 2 cars on a trip. Without the third row up don't do any real shopping because you'll have no room. This is a nice and stylish car recommended for a small family. But if you're looking for room AND comfort, the Journey isn't it. Mini Van? Nooooooo!!!

Pros

  • Dashboard:
  • Styling:
  • Technology and Entertainment:

Cons

  • Cargo Space:
  • Interior Space:
  • Power:

- Raeisha G., 2016 Dodge Journey

It's a nice mid-size family suv.nice body style. so - so performance

I have had to take this vehicle back to get service for a lot of different things within 3 months period. From brake booster issues, remote start, force road balancing , sensor, air conditioner compressor replaced, front tire noise. The car drives like it's in wrong gear and tech told me that's the way car is designed.it feels awful to drive and not smooth on slowing down or acceleration. The car looks good but is awful in performance. Too many things replaced on a low mileage vehicle and one previous owner. Very disappointed with my first suv purchase.

Pros

  • Value: The price was economical for this size suv
  • Styling: The styling is modern and appealing to eye
  • Interior Space: front and 2nd row ok in leg room and head space. 3rd row just a little cramped, however enough room for kids and not adults

Cons

  • Braking: I don't like the braking system. Seems mediocre. Braking sometimes make the car jerk and makes the car feel like it's going to shut off.
  • Fuel Economy: I hate the fuel economy! I am averaging 16-18 . very frequent trips to gas station during a week
  • Ride and Handling: Don't really care for the feel of the ride and handling. The vehicle always feel like you are driving in the wrong gear, especially going up a hill or picking up speed. Do not dare to try to pass anyone because it sounds like you are driving in 1st gear at a 4th or5th gear level. It is so slow on

- Shavelle Manderville, 2012 Dodge Journey

Best purchase I have made.

This is the second vehicle I have purchased from CarMax where the vehicle was a top of the line model in it's class. Dodge Journey Crossroads Leather seating Bose system with pull down DVD player Big touch screen display and Navigation Accent lighting throughout the vehicle The Pro's: The size is perfect for my DJ gear and equipment. The ease of folding the seats. The powerful engine, the clean and classy look of the leather and interior. The stylish design of the exterior and matching rims. The standard Bose system is fabolous. No need to purchase any after market parts to spruce this baby up. It comes with all the bells and whistles. The Con's: It is a little luggish on the get up, but once in gear it is smooth sailing.

Pros

  • Fuel Economy: I travel from Brandon to Lakeland daily and I only have to fill up once a week.
  • Reliability: A well put together vehicle and with the proper care will ride good for many years to come.
  • Interior Space: Room for passengers and once the back seats go down, room to fit big and bulky items.

Cons

  • Power: A little sluggish getting up to speed.
