This car is fun to drive and has plenty of room for hauling goods and passengers.it gets good mileage and plenty of acceleration when needed. Some of the other reviews made me worry about the 4 cylinder model but I have not has any problems in city nor country traffic. You won't win any drag races but I have had it loaded with 5 adults and have done fine merging in and out of metro-plex traffic.
There's quite a bit of room in the backseat. I have a son who is 6'2" tall and he fits comfortably in the back seat. I wrongly assumed that he would be OK in the drivers seat. He fits, but just barely. With the seat all the way back and the steering wheel all the way up, his knees almost touch the steering wheel. Don't buy this if you're extremely tall. My wife has had some issues with the Bluetooth connectivity. If you only have one phone synced to the car, it seems to work better. It has very little power off the line. We knew it wasn't going to be ballsy, but we both really wish we had something with a bit more power. It's fine once you're on the road. I can pass people with no problem., but not much take off power.
Not for a family with car seat requirements
2016 Dodge JourneyRaeisha G. - Moreno Valley, CA12/01/2015
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!!!
