    • Out of curiosity...3rd picture, DJ club, coincidence, or buddies of yours?
    • Shouldn’t be, the smaller the turbo, the quicker the spool.... The 2.0L Ecoboost we had in the Escape took off like a rubber band, that being said, with how computer controlled everything is these days the “lag” if any at all woul be different from vehicle to vehicle. Having a low “ping” (for lack of a better term) in your softwares communication would almost act like a lag sometimes too... Yeah, but it’s a GM product....highest/longest recal rate ever. The 4Cyl and 6Cyl may use the same transmission, but the gearing would be different to account for the differences in engine capabilities....obviously gearing can only help so much while still maintaining acceptable power curves/acceleration/top speed etc.. But even with the gearing help, you’re absolutely right, the 4Cyl just isn’t enough....my friend has a 09 Journey 4Cyl, and he is very secretly jealous that I bought a new one with the 6Cyl LOL   Same reason we didn’t go with a Durango, I’m not about to buy one with the 6Cyl and the 8Cyl is more than I’ll spend on a “family hauler”.
    • Recall is only for 2014 and newer Journeys   http://wwwapps.tc.gc.ca/Saf-Sec-Sur/7/VRDB-BDRV/search-recherche/detail.aspx?lang=eng&mk=33038!24277!28000!6400!1849!2444!3714!4864!5115&md=0&fy=0&ty=9999&ft=&ls=0&sy=0&rn=2018269&cf=SearchResult&pg=0
    • Damn! 50k for a Caravan.....that hurts For that kind of coin, you could own a Pacifica....it’s like the Bentley of Minivans LOL   I can only say it “that way” because when we traded in the 2015 Escape Titanium for the Journey...it turned the Journey into a 60k+ vehicle LOL So I very much know your pain   That being said, we picked up a B/N 2017 DJ CR AWD and aside from horribly paved roads, our Journey rides nicely! The Journey is right at home on the highway or any 80km/h+ road/hywy but as I said, rough roads, not so much....suspension no likey LOL
    • Been a while since I have been on the forum.....just over 30k on the odometer, this Journey does everything we ask of it without issue! just a few pictures of the “Journey Life”
    • change out the heater core as suggested by the dealership . pay them $$$ or check out you tube for a simple way to change it out yourself or have your local mechanic watch it for a cheaper way to do it$.  
    • I own a 2011 journey crew awd with a 3.6 auto trans. It has just over 106,000 miles. It is a very reliable car with the usual wear parts being replaced; ie. pads, rotors, wipers.  This winter has been different, and cold. I have very little heat coming from my defrosters. There is a a bit more coming from the lower vents, but only with the recycle button on. Being in the northeast makes for a chilly 30 minute drive to work, even after letting car warm up for 15 minutes. The dealer is telling me it is a plugged heater core. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.
    • There’s a recently released recall on cruise controls for dodge vehicles. Check with your dealer before hacking up factory wiring. 
    • First vehicle I’ve ever owned where I had to replace tires (@42000 miles) before brake pads. One thing they got right was addressing the poor brake performance on the earlier models. Not sure if you are making a complaint or not, but if you feel they should be replaced, replace them.  Otherwise, enjoy the fact that your pads are still good at whatever mileage you are at and motor on. 
    • The 3.6 makes all kinds of start up noises. Partly because of plastic cover in the  timing chain. Does it more in colder weather. Perfectly normal.
