Bought 2010 Dodge Journey (used) from tom wood Ford dealership. I have made 3 payments. The vehicle would not start leaving me stranded in a parking lot. I tried to jump it without success. When I turned the key to jump it, white smoke came from the engine compartment and there was a strong odor of melting plastic. I grabbed my kid and belongings and fled the vehicle. I had it towed to shop. They replaced the battery and sent me on my way. The next day it started rough. I drove it approximately 2 miles to a gas station. It would not restart. Had it towed back to shop for further evaluation. All lights, radio, power windows, etc. Are functioning, starter makes clicking sound, alternator checked out ok, new battery installed, but it will not start. Mileage is 81,759.

The horn beeps randomly. It seems to happen more right before a thunderstorm hits or when a storm is in the area. Also the car sometimes won't start. The starting problem has been an on going problem since the first year of owner ship. I'm the original owner and have had the car in for all of the recalls including the fob replacement. I feel this car is a lemon and wish I had never purchased it. My Plymouth Voyager was a very dependable car and I was expecting the same from the Journey but that has not been the case with this car.

Takata recall when slowing down to a stop light the car locked the steering and breaks. The traction control light came on. I was unable to come to a complete stop and ended up going halfway through the light. I turned the car off then back on. It was fine. About a month later the same thing happened as we were driving on the highway. We had no control over the steering or breaks. I contacted the dealer and they said there was no open recall so they would not fix it for free. I just bought the car two months ago.

"takata recall" on 4/06/2016, my keypad would not lock my doors. On 04/09/2016, it began to work again. After starting my engine and driving my car for 1 minute, my car stalled on me. I proceeded to start my vehicle again, only for it to shut down for the second time. After my vehicle immediately shut down, everything went completely out. I could not let my windowa down, doors would not lock nor unlock radio will not play. Windshield wipers would not work. When I attempted to jump start my vehicle with a boost, smoke begin to appear from under the hood near the battery posts. I contacted a Dodge dealership in my area and are currently waiting on the diagnostic results. I will be visiting the NHTSA site today to provide you with an update.

Driver side front window/locks/mirror controls don't work. Rear window controls do work on driver side. Locks and passenger window controls work on passenger side. All is exactly as in safety recall K07-front door wiring harness (stopped with model year 2009) so why is my exact problem (2010) shared by so many other 2010S on the internet, too" I am frustrated. Mechanic cannot find problem. Considering buying a new master switch for driver door-others say replacing it didn't work! it's a known problem-symptoms exact and to the "T"...recall window cutoff too soon!!! was notified of ignition/key fobick recall, thankfully! car occasionally almost dies, chugs, and keeps running. Car starts and runs great-intermittent almost dying thing always out of the blue! not notified about high pressure power steering hose leaking problem-just paid to have that replaced. Power steering makes terrible noise when turned to right. Suspension rattles like a box of bones! what next" I'm getting the sense that this vehicle isn't safe to drive (esp. W/my son in the car)! diagnostics and repair bills and quotes really starting to stack up-the more I look into this 2010 Dodge Journey regarding my problems, seeing so many others with same exact problems-really surprised that the recall list isn't more than it is! how many people have to live through the same poor quality issues before the manufacturer takes care of these sometimes seemingly pandemic problems"?" started before 116,000 miles - now 120,115 miles.

After doing my son's rotors and brakes I started to back the car out of the driveway and it stalled numerous times. The car had been running for 10+ minutes before this so it wasn't from a cold start plus it was around 40+ degrees out today. I said something to my son and he says it happens all the time(lives with his mom so never said anything to me before) I just looked into this online and it seems it's a known issue with problem being tipm. Chrysler hasn't recalled my son's vehicle yet though even as there's a class action lawsuit to add this year and make to the recall. Does someone have to get killed before this known issue gets the attention and recall it needs"???"
