Don't start believing in the Dodge Journey. On paper, this midsized SUV may sound compelling, but in our tests, we found that it has a confining interior, lacks agility, and the V6 delivers the worst fuel economy in its class. Add to that, it suffers from below average reliability and poor performance in IIHS small-overlap frontal crash test. But it rides well, the cabin is relatively quiet, and it offers a snug third-row seat. The Journey is late in its model run, with discounts commonplace. But don't be tempted. This low-rated model is a poor value anywhere--even at the airport rental lot.
