Quality & Reliability. Average. 74/ ; Driving Experience. Average. 78/ ; Resale. Great. 81/ ; Dealership Experience. Not Rated. Cons. Although the Dodge Journey has been completely overhauled, those looking for a well-established vehicle with equally well-established reliability. My journey has been extremely reliable. I replaced the brakes after 9 years and ,+ miles. The gas mileage is great, the ride is smooth.
It rides well and is quiet, but that's about all. It suffers from a lack of agility, lousy fuel economy from the optional liter V6, a reluctant transmission. Four star rollover rating, best ratings all around for collision safety. The Pentastar + 6 speed is a big question mark, but the GEMA (World). All-wheel drive is offered as an option. Dodge estimates fuel economy at 17 mpg city and 25 mpg highway for front-drive and 16/24 mpg with all-wheel drive.
