2013 Dodge Journey

Trim: SE
by Rickg on 10-21-2013
Amazing SUV for the price!
I recently purchased a brand new 2013 Journey SE in black pearl coat. I had previously purchased a 2010 Journey as a lease buy back and I was totally impressed. In both cases, I chose the 4 cylinder engine. I have read many reviews where they complain about the lack of performance, the noise and the unrefined engine - they simply do not know what they are talking about. The vehicle handles like a dream, acceleration is not an issue and I get excellent gas mileage....
After having so many issues years ago I had to really think twice before I bought another Chrysler product .Glad I did!
