Why the 2012 Dodge Journey?

Handling

Excellent handling, and good manners in the road.

Materials & workmanship

Very good quality of materials and assembly.

Interior styling

Nice interior and roomy.

Interior storage compartments

Plenty of compartments

Safety & braking

No problems, many active and pasive security items. Best pick for security according to the NHTSA. I have read several comments regarding the problems related to brakes (Rotors and Pads, especially in 2009 and 2010 models. In my case with 19,000Kms, and more tha a year of use, I have not had any problems with the brakes, including rotors and pads.

Why Not the 2012 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.
