Dodge Journey

The Dodge Journey is full-size people mover that arrived in Australia in 2008 and was killed off in 2017.

Starting at $18,000 for the Journey SXT and capping off at the $31,240 Journey R/T Blacktop Edition, the Journey competed in the same segment as the Honda Odyssey, Hyundai iMax, and Kia Carnival.

Dodge offered buyers a range of engines during its nine year run, ranging from a turbo-diesel four cylinder connected to a six-speed dual-clutch transmission and range of V6 petrols connected to a torque-converted auto.

The Dodge Journey is also called the Fiat Freemont, Dodge JC, Dodge JCUV.

Dodge Journey Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Dodge Journey here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Where is the battery located in my 2013 Dodge Journey?

    Even though the Journey was not a particularly popular model in Australia, I’m still a bit surprised that we don’t get this question a bit more often. Because the answer is a real doozie. While a lot of car-makers find that underbonnet space is too limited to place a battery, some resort to locating the battery either under a seat inside the car or in the boot. But not Dodge in the case of the Journey.

    To access the battery in that case, you need to jack up the car, remove the front passenger’s wheel, peel back the plastic inner-guard and there, behind the corner of the front bumper, you will find the battery. For jump starting a car with a flat battery, Dodge placed a positive and negative terminal in the engine bay near the front-left suspension tower, and you’ll identify the positive by a small, red plastic cap with a `+’ moulded into it.

  • Best in seven-seater class?

    Definitely not the Journey; the Territory is solid and good value; but my current favourite in the class is the Kia Sorento. It gets The Tick and is well worth the extra, even though the starting price of $40,990 is well beyond the $33,500 base of the Journey.

  • Legal action for Dodge Journey R/T

    Brake wear is a serious problem with the Journey as we reported in  our used car review recently. Your experience is common. Some owners have had success in getting Chrysler to cough up for the new pads and rotors when their cars are under warranty, like yours is, so I would continue to press your case with the company. The unfortunate thing  is that you can expect to have to replace the brakes at regular intervals of the sort you've already experienced for the life of the car. I would suggest legal action if you feel strongly about it.
