2009 Dodge Journey Problems

The Remote Keyless Entry System May Not Work intermittently

The remote keyless entry system may not work intermittently. Our technicians suggest upgrading the software in the wireless ignition node (WIN) to correct this concern.

Rattle/Howl/Drone/Buzz Type Noise From the Rear of the Vehicle

Rattle/howl/drone/buzz type noise, resonating from the rear of the vehicle may develop. This sound can be heard at approximately 2100 rpm and may only last for a few seconds. Our technicians tell us that exhaust clamps and brackets should be checked for proper torque and heat shield clearance should be inspected if this condition occurs.

The Engine may Overheat Due to Debris in the Cylinder Head Coolant Port

An engine overheating condition may develop due to a coolant flow issue. Our technicians tell us that debris may block the cylinder head coolant port at the primary thermostat housing. Removing the debris should correct this concern.

2009 Dodge Journey Recalls

Power Steering Hose Ruptures And Leaks

The power steering return hose may rupture and leak at engine start up after being exposed to cold temperatures. Dealers will replace the power steering return hoses, steel tubes and power steering oil cooler free of charge to resolve the concern.

Air Bags May Not Deploy In An Accident

The vehicle's air bags may not deploy as needed in an accident, resulting in increased risk of occupant injury. Additionally, the air bags could deploy inadvertently without an accident, causing loss of vehicle control. Dealers will replace the air bag control unit free of charge to resolve the concern.

Ignition Switch Concern

If the ignition key unexpectedly moves to the OFF or ACCESSORY position, the engine will turn off. This will depower various safety systems including but not limited to airbags, power steering, and power braking. Loss of functionality of these systems may increase the risk of crash and/or injury in the event of a crash. The weight of extra items on the ignition key ring can be a contributing factor to this unexpected occurrence. Until this recall is completed customers are advised to remove all other items from the ignition key ring. Dealers will modify the ignition switch to correct this concern.

worst car on the world,i was very happy with my ford explorer,this one went to mexico with me like 20 times,first time i took the 09 journey the trasmission broke down and i have to come back on the bus ,me and my family,now i took the journey to the dealer for a recall on the ignition ,and they burn mystarter and posibbly my ecm,i work for autozone and i belive is not fair for them to do that...
i have a 2009 journey r/t after about 60,000 miles the engine seems to have a whining noise lack of power. when the transmission shifts into overdrive or 6th gear the engine starts clattering sounds like a diesel engine. worst vehicle ever owned will go back to chevy or ford from now on
This is the worst POS car I have ever owned. The brake and rotors I have had problems with ever since I bought it. Coolent system problems all the time.
