2009 Dodge Journey Problems

Inaccurate Speed Settings or Excessive Engine RPM When Using the Cruise Control

When using the cruise control, inaccurate speed settings or excessive engine RPM may be noted. Our technicians tell us updated software for the powertrain control module (PCM) is available to correct this concern.

Vibration on Brake Application

A pulsation may be felt in the brake pedal or steering wheel on brake application. This is commonly caused by warped brake rotors. The front rotors are commonly at fault but the rears should be checked also. Warped rotors will need to be re-machined or replaced to correct this concern.

Dampness Inside the Vehicle Due to a Water Leak

Dampness inside the vehicle may be the result of a water leak, most commonly caused by improperly sealed body seams. Once the source of the leak has been determined the affected area should be properly sealed.

2009 Dodge Journey Recalls

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.

Chrysler Recalls 2009 Dodge Journey Vehicles Due to Damaged Wires Inside the Doors

In the event of a crash, the side airbag may not deploy, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will replace the left and right door wiring harness.

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.
