 I purchased this car in august 2010 (it is a 2009) and since then, i have had the vehicle in the shop 33 times. i have had to replace all brakes and rotors, had front passenger-side window motor replaced, driver-side is going out now, had leaking from the ceiling, replacing the cracked radiator right now, had the emergency brake fixed, needed new rods and bushings, fuel injectors run loud, there is a drone noise from the right side of the vehicle when going 1800-2000 rpm, electrical systems short out, had the electric throttle indicator light come on, car dies all the time, yet the battery is fine, ...bottom line, this is a lemon. i have the r/t model which the dealership likes to claim is just the noisy one. that is a very poor answer towards a consumer. i take very good care of my vehicles and to put up with this is upsetting. i have spent over $3000 in repairs in the 2 1/2 years that i have owned this suv. chrysler has made no attempts to help with these common problems and i know that i will not support this company buy purchasing with them again. when i bought a journey...i didn't realize being able to drive it without problems, would be such a journey. *tr

 I noticed my 2009 dodge journey started burning oil. i took to the dealership keffer chrylser jeep eagle to have a consumption test run on it. come to find out my journey burned almost 4 quarts of oil after 1700 miles. there were not warning lights that came on to tell me there was an issue with my car. i bought my car new with 12 miles on it. i have attempted to contact chrysler to see if they would pay mine off and i would upgrade. everyone i talked to keep saying they can not make those decisions, maybe contact the nhtsa. chrysler has not replied back yet. the dealer i am working with seems to be more interested in making a new sale with others then addressing the current issues with a loyal dodge/chrylser owner. this vehicle has failed at 50,000 miles. the reply i received is we are better now, that is why we offered the powertrain warranty. you are lucky. yeah, lucky me paying for a car i can not drive and no assistance from chrysler. sure, they are repairing this and they tell me there should not be any charges to me. i guess we will see. there is one thing they took from me that won't come back with any repairs. my peace of mind.

 The 2009 dodge journey builds up carbon in the cylinders. this will cause the cylinders to fail. the car will shake while driving down the road and will shift incorectly. it is extremely scarey while driving 55 miles per hour. you have no ideal what is wrong. after many trial and eroors with dodge the problem of is only fixed by getting your engine tore apart. they will tell you at first bad spark plugs. this is incorrect. then they say bad gas. this is incorrect. then clean the carbon out. this to is a temporary fix, they must redue the engine, but i feel this is again a temporary fix, because they just replaces parts in another 40,000 miles it is bound to happen again. i only hope by letting everyone know this will only help to have dodge rethink about replacing the parts time and time agian, and really look into the matter and fix the problem for the consumer.

 2009 dodge journey with less just over 23,000 miles needed all new brakes and rotors. the back breaks were completely shot and my car was relying completely on the front brakes. not covered under warranty. also had to have the front right tie-rod replaced - so loose the tire was ready to fall off. now need an entirely new transmission (24,000 miles now). they do see the transmission issue as a problem, but justified the brakes going (told me it was the way i drive) and the tie-rod (lots of potholes in the area). it's insane that no-one at this dealership seems to think there is a problem with this car, but i know i got a lemon. they aren't even paying for a loaner car - i have to pay for a rental while it will likely be in the shop for over a week.

 On monday, march 8, 2010, my wife, two year old daughter and i suffered a third episode of the following dangerous malfunctions: steering, transmission and drivetrain issues that, without notice, result in an unbearable screeching and grinding noise emanating from underneath the vehicle at speeds between 15 and 30 mph, a pause and hesitation in acceleration between speeds of 15 and 30 m.p.h. that causes the car to jump forward, the immediate loss of accurate steering and a burning smell throughout the car interior we suffered the most recent episode, without notice, while driving through rush hour traffic at 7:45 a.m. we waited two hours for a tow truck to arrive. fortunately, my wife and daughter were only shaken, but not injured. in the last three months, we have had an unsafe rear tire replaced, sunroof parts replaced for constant leaking, a new electronic module installed to prevent the episodes of the entire electronic system malfunctioning causing the loss of car function and door locks and multiple power steering parts replaced.
