I was more impressed by the Journey than I expected to be. It's smooth and quiet, and the powertrain is refined; the six-speed automatic works pretty well with the V-6.
The vehicle is also a nice size, especially compared with the old truck-based Durango. The third-row seats, though, are torture chambers suitable only for pre-teens for the run to school, not for family vacations.
