What Our Members Are Saying about the Personal Experiences of the Dodge Journey

Dodge Journey Personal Experiences: Cons
2012 4dr SUV 173-horsepower 2.4L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
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. full 2012 Dodge Journey review

2009 4dr SUV 173-horsepower 2.4L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Engine lights, early repairs on suspension,brakes ,fan belts & drives with pulleys(plastic). Worst of all no aftermarket exhaust parts available. Needed to replace cracked resonator only.BELIEVE IT OR NOT, THE DEALER SAID I WOULD HAVE TO REPLACE THE COMPLETE EXHAUSE SYSTEM ( $1000 + ) BECAUSE IT ONLY COMES IN ONE PIECE. HAVE FUN IF YOU NEED A MUFFLER REPLACEMENT!!!!! $50 labour to change battery!!!!!! on top of battery price at dealer. full 2009 Dodge Journey review
