Best Reason to Buy the Dodge Journey: Handling
Excellent handling, and good manners in the road.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Dodge Journey: Past personal experience
At 12,500 Kms, four shock absorbers changed, symptoms were shaking steering wheel, plus feathered tires (Yokohama). No leaks detected and/or any visible damage.when dampers were removed, they were fully discharged (GAS). I can not fault the vehicle itself, as it is a component that came with a manufacturing defect.

Other Reasons to Buy the Dodge Journey: Safety & braking, Interior storage compartments, Interior styling, Materials & workmanship

Best Reason to Buy the Dodge Journey: Exterior styling
The updates to the exterior of the car for 2012 include LED taillights. This makes the car feel like a higher end luxury car.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Dodge Journey: Fuel economy
The biggest disappointment for the car is the lower fuel economy. On the highway, it gets right around 30, but in town driving suddenly drops to under 20. That's a big difference, and since it is primarily used around town (less than 15% highway) we're paying a bit more in fuel costs.

Best Reason to Buy the Dodge Journey: Feature availability
For a base model, it was way loaded in comparison to anything else. Retail under $20K with keyless entry and start, touchscreen audio, LCD info screen in the instrument cluster cubbys in the floor in the 2nd row, thrid row seat, was a no-brainer

Other Reasons to Buy the Dodge Journey: Warranty, maintenance cost, Powertrain performance

Best Reason to Buy the Dodge Journey: Interior styling
We were impressed by the interior, even in base trim. Everything has a polished look (e.g. the instrument cluster with the LCD screen in the middle), the under floor storage for the second row seats, and the amount storage under the rear cargo compartment

Best Reason Not to Buy the Dodge Journey: Color choices
We were hoping to get ours in Pearl White Tri-coat, but there were production/supply issues because of the Japanese tsunami with that color, and it was jsut starting to enter production the month we bought, so we settled for plain white. Meh.

Best Reason to Buy the Dodge Journey: Interior styling
The interior of this car is beautiful. All centered around the Uconnect touch screen. All functions and features very intuitive. The interior is also very insulated from outside noise/quiet.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Dodge Journey: Audio & nav systems
The Garmin Nav is adequate but sometimes inaccurate. Uconnect audio system sounds great but has some quirks.

Best Reason to Buy the Dodge Journey: Interior styling
Nice dashboard layout, textures and materials are great, the 8" touchscreen is awesome, interior lighting package is terrific. It feels much more high-end than all the other cars I test drove, including Subaru Outback, Kia Sorento and Cheyv Equinox.

Best Reason to Buy the Dodge Journey: Exterior styling
Good fit, just about right size

It has a different style than other crossovers. Not too high off the ground and not too low. Blends well with the new vurve in automotive styling.

Very cheap plastic with not much contrast.
