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.
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.
Great American Vehicle - Hybrid Between an SUV and Minivan
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.
