2012 Dodge Journey Real Gas Mileage: Cons
2012 4dr SUV 283-horsepower 3.6L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
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. see full Dodge Journey review
