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!!!
2013 Dodge JourneyK K - Salt Lake City, UT12/10/2016
This has been a reliable vehicle so far. It is definitely more affordable than other SUVs in this market. I enjoy the perks of the R/T (heated seats, Alpine stereo). I have had issues with my Bluetooth lately. The website suggests downloading an update, which I'll try soon.
This is a great family vehicle. Is it an SUV, mini van, or wagon? Dont know and dont really care. What I do know is its comfortable, drives smooth, has great hp (the 6 cylinder), and has enough bells and whistles to make it feel like a luxury vehicle. Remote start, heated seats and steering wheel are wondurful in the winter, not to mention the AWD. So many hidden storage compartments and a fold away 3rd row seat to fit the whole family. Althouh the body is a bit odd, I still feel pretty manly in it given the near 300 hp.
As for the cons, mpg is not very good, and it h few blind spots that will take some getting used to. 3rd row seat will really only work for small children given lack of leg room.
