Introduction

I bought the Dodge Journey in 2014 after owning a Dodge Caliber for seven years and find that while it is a little harder to park the advantages are significant. For example well equipped the journey cost me $17,600 CAN and in fact was $2,200 less than I paid for the Caliber seven years ago. The extra cargo space is useful and we plan a roadtrip with the family this summer. The Caliber used to give me an average of 8.7 L100km whereas the Journey returns an average of 9.0 L100km which is pretty good considering the engine is a 2.4 as opposed to 1.8 in the Caliber. The car is well finished and is comfortable inside with convenient controls for everything at my fingertips. While the dsiplay is nice to look and easy to use with the touch screen Dodge has retained knobs for most functions, which us old folk prefer. The traction in snow and on ice has been excellent with no issues to date. The warranty repairs necessary in over 2 years of ownership include a faulty tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), an antilock brake system control module and a power steering hose and fluid cooler all which the dealer readily replaced at no cost.

2014 Dodge Journey Love Letter

Looks better in styling than it larger brother the Grand Caravan and is easy to clean and maintain. The four doors open independently which I prefer to the sliding door on the Grand caravan. I can also get 8 foot pieces of 2x4 in this vehicle easily. Good for the do it yourself types. Sitting higher thatn a normal sedan also makes it easier to get in and out of.

Conclusion

I would recommend it to those looking for reliable, economical and functional transportation.
