  1. 19,XXXkm and counting.....

    I have a 2017 crossroad too, and I haven't had the Connect issue (knock on wood), but I know when/if I do have an issue my dealership is going to be the main problem... Seems to be a common thing with dodge/chrysler dealers. I definitely think it would help them out if they did something to change their poor service to current owners.
  2. Dash Rattle Near Windshield

    I read through a different forum that someone had the same type rattle, they actually had 2 things they had to get fixed to get rid of it. They said the debris guard by the wipers needed to have one of the rubber clips replaced and their A/C hoses weren't tied down properly underneath the dash. They also mentioned that the only way to access the hoses was through the engine bay. Maybe that could be something to look into for yours? Mine is at all speeds though and seems to come directly from the center, it's not big deal but it definitely tugs at my OCD strings, haha
  3. Dash Rattle Near Windshield

    Thanks for that! It's not something that's worrying so I'm just going to wait until I take it in for my next oil change, but I appreciate the offer to help! I just wanted to see if there was something I could troubleshoot by myself first.
  4. New Journey owner - not thrilled

    Sorry to hear that you're having problems... for an 8 year old vehicle to have 140,000 miles on it, it had to be driven WAY over the normal 12,000 average miles per year. My guess is that it was a rental car, which almost definitely means it was put through some tough drivers. You didn't mention what problems you were having, or where you bought it from.
  5. Dash Rattle Near Windshield

    Oh I know, I just wanted to check on here and see if anyone else has the same problem or had gotten a similar rattle fixed. Especially if it's something I can remedy myself without spending a whole day at the dealer!
  6. Dash Rattle Near Windshield

    So recently I've been getting a weird mystery rattle in the dash.. close to the windshield in the center. It sounds like plastic, but applying pressure to any of the dash panels doesn't make it go away while driving. When I lean closer it sounds like it's coming from INSIDE the dash area, but it's very constant. Last night I went through and removed everything from the glove box, bottom storage cubby, anything that might be causing the problem that isn't part of the car and it's still there. Is anyone else experiencing this? My DJ is a 2017 Crossroad Plus, and it has about 18k on it now. I know this sounds like a little thing, but it is driving me NUTS!!! Thanks!
  7. I second Bryman here... I have a 2017, and at night the camera is next to useless. The screen resolution sucks and everything turns a blueish shade and you can't make anything out. The camera seems to be much better on the newer models (pacifica, durango, charger) but I don't think there is much we can do to improve ours.
  8. Just Bought Used 2015 Dodge Journey SXT

    I have the backup sensors and to be honest, they drive me a little crazy. They don't alert you to anything that isn't within view of the camera, it's loud and turns the music off when it beeps. Whenever I pull out of my garage it goes insane.

    It wouldn't hurt to have it looked at by someone else. The dealer here is infamous for sucking money out of thin air, or at least trying to. It seems like a bit portion of this list pertains to seals though, which can leak at anytime really. Also, a dealer may have a more strict standard for what they consider "acceptable" condition, especially when it comes to components that have "play". If you've driven it hard, and had it parked outside for most of the time you had it then I would say that perhaps these are all necessary, but again it wouldn't hurt at all to have it looked over. Let us know what you decide on, I'd be interested to hear whether the dealer was just trying to drain your wallet.

    Well golly day that's a lot of driving! Glad to hear about the positive experience with your DJ! Makes all of us new owners happy to see more positive posts
  11. How to Fold Front Passenger Seat Down Flat

    If it doesn't fold flat when you use the lever on the side then it doesn't have the option. On mine you just hold the lever that adjusts the seat back position and it folds itself flat.
  12. new windshield

    I've actually replaced quite a few, though I had a 2013 Honda Civic that had such a steeply raked windshield nothing ever hit it directly... I do mostly highway driving and have had quite a few scare/squint moments when a pretty sizable rock hit the windshield and much to my surprise nothing happened with the DJ *crosses fingers* My 2004 Chevy Blazer had a new chip/crack every other month though, it was a nightmare! Sorry that you had to replace yours, bad things happen every once in a while.
  13. I have a 2017 Journey Crossroad and I have a noise similar to what you are describing. It happens mostly when I'm going slow over a speed bump. There are tons of topics on this and I can't believe the dealer doesn't have a TSB to look at for this issue as many people have the same one. It doesn't bother me much, and I did have them look everything over and they said it was fine so I'm not too worried. The dealer here said that a lot of the Journeys make that noise, and they haven't found a definite solution to it, but also reassured me that the performance/safety of the suspension isn't compromised. Take a look through some of the forum topics and maybe you'll find one where they got the noise solved, then you can see if the dealer would be able to try the same to rectify the noise. Sorry about your experience, and I hope you get it solved!
  14. a Mile High Hello to you all from a new member!

    Welcome and congrats! It looks great! I see a lot of the GT models WITHOUT the roof rack and I think it looks 10x better with it, the devil is in the details :-P
  15. 9k miles and 6 months later...

    Thanks! I'll have to look into that! I didn't think much of it when I first bought the car but I do remember setting my old Civic windows that way!
