Dodge Journey - Consumer Reports

2011-2020
2011 Redesign Year
The 2011 reworking brought a much nicer interior and a better V6, but the lack of agility and still-mediocre fuel economy keep it out of the top ranks. Plus it was more expensive than many better rivals.
Poor IIHS small overlap crash-test results and below average owner satisfaction add to the long list of demerits. Three row seating became standard for 2018. Ultimately, we think you'd be better served looking at something else. The V6 engine and all-wheel drive were dropped in 2020 and the Journey finally came to an end.

2009-2010
2009 Redesign Year
The Journey, Dodge's first car-based SUV, used the Chrysler Sebring/Dodge Avenger platform. The fairly compact vehicle offers a tiny third-row seat.
A noisy 2.4-liter engine is standard, but the punchier and more refined 3.5-liter V6 engine is a better choice. However, 16 mpg is the tradeoff for the improved performance potential. Ride quality is a bit unsettled and handling lacks agility, but is ultimately secure. Storage bins under the front-passenger seat cushion and in the second row floor are handy. Integrated child booster seats are an option.
