2010 Dodge Journey Review

Reviewers appreciated the 2010 Dodge Journey’s above-average fuel economy, but they didn’t like much else. Although it has good safety scores, the Journey’s cramped third row, disappointing performance and cheap-feeling interior materials prevent it from being a solid contender in its class.

Pros & Cons

  • Versatile interior
  • Good safety scores

2010 Dodge Journey Overview

When it was new, the Journey cost less than many competing crossovers, it had good fuel economy and reviewers appreciated its versatile interior. However, if you can do without the third row, there are a number of better choices than the 2010 Journey. Its available third row is cramped, its base engine is underpowered and its handling is disappointing.

The 2010 Dodge Journey comes with either a four-cylinder engine that most reviewers felt was underpowered, or a thirsty 3.5-liter V6. The four-cylinder models have front- or all-wheel drive, while the V6 is only available with all-wheel drive. The base Journey comes standard with a six-speaker stereo, climate-controlled glove box and power-folding mirrors. Higher trims, named SXT and R/T, add features like leather upholstery, heated front seats, three-zone climate control and an upgraded stereo system. Keep in mind that the Journey underwent a significant refresh for the 2011 model year, so you may want to take a look at the 2011 Dodge Journey while you’re shopping.

Other Cars to Consider

The 2010 Ford Edge is a much better overall choice than the Dodge Journey. The Edge has an interior that’s roomier and performance that’s much more satisfying. Reviewers said the base Edge isn’t that sporty, but if you upgrade to the Sport model, the Edge’s handling is much better. The Edge doesn’t offer a third row, but if you don’t need one, the Edge is the better choice.

If you like the Journey’s tidy dimensions and can live with a small third row, the 2011 Kia Sorento is a good alternative to consider. It’s fairly sporty to drive, it comes with tons of standard features and it’s well-designed inside and out. Like the Journey, the Sorento was available with two or three rows of seats, though the Sorento is just as cramped in the back.
