We got the Journey as our family vehicle. We didn't need a full on SUV and did not want a mini van. The Journey seemed to be a perfect mix between the two vehicle styles. Plenty of space for our 9mo old in her seat, the dog and cargo. Plus the 3rd row seating is awesome to have when needed. We feel safe and confident driving it. So far we love it.

This car was a good purchase, and it fit all of our needs perfectly. Small enough to be an efficient daily driver, yet large enough to take the whole family on a trip. The quality of the interior fit and finish, the Pentastar V-6 providing surprising power (don't even consider the 4 cylinder option), the smooth ride, and the superb handling make this SUV a great value for the price.
I really like the keyless entry system and my third row option. It has a nice ride like a car but lots of room. They really had storage in mind and there are lots of little hidden storage areas. My best friend bought a new Lexus SUV and while I don't have all the bells and whistles she has, I think that I got a lot of nice things for a GREAT deal compared to what she paid for what she has.
