ThisJourney already has over 65K miles and I have notexperienced any mechanical or electrical issues. Compared tothe issues my coworkers have experienced with their Chevy Equinox with similar mileage, I can say that the Journey is a very reliable vehicle. full 2014 Dodge Journey review

I worry about this. Had another competitor offered effectively the same vehicle I probably wouldn't have purchased this vehicle. Never owned a mopar previously but don't have the warm fuzzies about them after hearing family and friend's personal experiences with them and reading truedelta's and consumer report's ratings. Fingers crossed that since this vehicle has been materially unchanged since the 2011 refresh FCA has figured out how to put these together well. Fingers crossed. full 2016 Dodge Journey review

With 18000 kms on it the front end is starting to knock when I back out of the driveway, just like the 1999 Caravan with 185000 kms on it, tranny issues noted above, cargo area carpeting damages easily. full 2009 Dodge Journey review

Not reliable- too many parts do not last . Too much plastic under hood which breaks down prematurely. Many parts should have been made of metal instead. Mechanics have told me that the Dodge Journey has ben made poorly & they do a lot of repairs on this model. full 2009 Dodge Journey review
