Hello DJ Forum, Greetings from a fellow DJ owner. Should have joined sooner but better late then never. My Dodge Journey is a 2010 3.5L AWD SXT in Silver. My faithful Journey has a total currently of 208,000 miles on the odometer and keeps going on the original engine and transmission. I follow all maintenance schedules and everything has stayed in great working order with the exception of a few things. I've had to replace the typical items like tires,2 sets of spark plugs now, 1 pair of outer tie rods, all 4 shocks, brakes - A lot before mechanic noticed the brake hose to both front calipers was being squeezed down by the metal bracket that holds it. Apparently it rusted/swelled up and was restricting back flow keeping the brake pistons pressed down. Dodge replaced a leaking and failing transfer case/PTU under warranty in 2015 when it had 159,000 miles on it. Sentry key sense module went out causing the mysterious no start issue(Often misdiagnosed as starter/battery) randomly around 170,000 Miles $600. Just recently the rear differential/carrier started making noise and clunking at 202,000 miles $600 for a used replacement installed. Heater core clogged up and had to be back-flushed a few times, issue was no heat on passenger side. I love my DJ and all the space in features. I'm saddened to see some people bashing theirs or having bad experiences with parts that fail prematurely. Mine is a GEM and proof that if you take care of things it will be a investment that will take you on many.....Journey's :D Attached is a photo of the still shining paint!
