2010 Dodge Journey Problems

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Engine May Shut Off While Driving

The ignition key could inadvertently rotate from the "run" to the "accessory" position, causing the engine to shut off without warning. If the engine shuts off while driving, vehicle performance will be affected, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the "WIN" module to correct this concern. The recall is expected to begin in April, 2011. The Chrysler recall number is L02.

Power Steering Pressure Hose Leaks

A failure of a crimp in the power steering pressure hose may cause a fluid leak. Dealers will inspect and replace affected hoses free of charge to resolve the concern.

38,000 miles and getting ready to replace third set of brake rotors. First time was re-machined and did not last. Then dealer replaced with newer version of Original Equipment. Now 21000 miles later, same thing allover again. Vehicle initially good value for money, but is now becoming a liability.
I am at 21k miles, have had Veh. for 3 years, (short work commute). At 15k miles I needed to change all pads, and resurface all rotors(rears were worse). This is way too early for rear brakes. Tires have been a huge problem, I have replaced 2 of them, extremely expensive, and now need to replace the other 2. I am going to change the tire size, and just buy 4 new tires, it will be cheaper this w...
Having issues with the rear tires wearing on the inside... The outside tread on the rear look brand new, while the inside tread is looking to be a lot worn. The front tires are worn eeven all the way across. Is the rear just a camber adjustment??
