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.
Nice and love my suv, only bad thing is I was having electrical problem with cruise control, locking from outside the door with button, using remote controller to start the car, and the Bluetooth to use your phone in the car stopped working. I'm a very busy person and by the time I went and made my payment after the first month they told me that my month was up for repairs and I had to take the car somewhere else to be repaired not at the dealership at the Dodge dealership. To this day I still haven't had it fixed.
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!!!
