2014 4dr SUV 283-horsepower 3.6L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
ThisJourney already has over 65K miles and I have notexperienced any mechanical or electrical issues. Compared tothe issues my coworkers have experienced with their Chevy Equinox with similar mileage, I can say that the Journey is a very reliable vehicle. full 2014 Dodge Journey review
2015 Dodge Journey Reliability And Durability: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2016 4dr SUV 283-horsepower 3.6L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
I worry about this. Had another competitor offered effectively the same vehicle I probably wouldn't have purchased this vehicle. Never owned a mopar previously but don't have the warm fuzzies about them after hearing family and friend's personal experiences with them and reading truedelta's and consumer report's ratings. Fingers crossed that since this vehicle has been materially unchanged since the 2011 refresh FCA has figured out how to put these together well. Fingers crossed. full 2016 Dodge Journey review
