2013 Dodge Journey Owner Comments

  • 100,000 miles


2013 Dodge Journey approximately 100000 mile. Uneven wear on rear tires (excessive inside wear) due to camber. For some reason the rear wheels on both the passenger and driver side tilt inward causing excessive wear on the inner tire. The vehicle had been recently serviced with an alignment, the rear camber is not adjustable stock and requires aftermarket control arms to allow for adjustment which where installed. The vehicle had been driven less than 1000 mile since the tire replacement and alignment and there is already noticeable wear on the inside of the rear tires. Due to the camber issue the vehicle shakes violently when driving at highway speeds.

Axle nuts - 2013 Dodge Journey, felt as though the vehicle was going to buckle under the front end, especially if I had to make a sudden stop. I loud clunk type noise would accompany the jolt feeling. Began occurring more often, to include when vehicle would shift. Took it into the shop the first time, and the order was written up as 're-torque the axle nuts'. issue continued, but was always described as 'could not duplicate the issue'. after numerous attempts, I was told that they had to replace the axle nuts as it looks as though they had been compromised. I informed them of the previous fix, and was told that you can not re-torque axle nuts, they should have been replaced. The dealership tried to make me pay, as it was something not covered under warranty until I brought up what they had done, so they took the loss. I would think that the axle nuts should have never become loose to begin with, as it seems as if it would be a high risk factor in liability. First occurrence: November 2014 second occurrence: August 2016

Turned car on and feels like the engine is stuttering need to make trip to dealer. Suspension noise coming from the front. Truck has been taken to the dealer numerous times on the suspension issue. The first time they said they lubed the bushings and every other time they say there is nothing wrong with it. This truck is a safety hazard for my family.
