Smaller than the typical mid-sized SUV, the Journey is a dated and mediocre performer. It rides decently and is fairly quiet, but that's about all. It suffers from a lack of agility, lousy fuel economy from the optional 3.6-liter V6, a reluctant transmission, and a tiny third-row seat. For the same sticker price of a V6-powered Journey, one can buy the much better Kia Sorento, but hefty discounts are the norm for the Journey. Poor IIHS small overlap crash-test results, subpar reliability and owner satisfaction add to the long list of demerits. Hefty discounts are common, but don't fall for this SUV that's soon to be put to pasture.
