Dodge (Chrysler) have arguably the best designers of the Big 3 automakers, but they're quality is also the lowest. Before anyone gets all snippety about American brands in general, btw, 3 of the top 5 spots are owned by American brands, and all are ranked above BMW...Sorry to do it here, but I am an E39 M5 driver...and this is the only site I know that Americans are on too....so;
Anybody any experience with a Dodge Journey? Its comming to the netherlands in the summer.
I am looking for a follower (next car) for my current Renault Grand Scenic (its french).
A good point. Don't confuse design with implementation - designers request specific materials, but usually don't get them unless the vehicle can command enough revenue. If it can't, then the engineering/mfg folks put in what they can afford, which in a small car like a Magnum is typically plastic, which means customers pay less, so they use cheap materials and the vicious cycle continues.I agree. I really really wanted a magnum....until I got inside one. Same for the Charger. Plaaaaaaastic! The cabin wasn't a nice place to be.
Hmm, thought I just read a story on it in Autoweek. And it was for U.S. consumption. I will take a look tonight. Looked like a cross between a van and a truck, but no sliding doors in the rear on each side.Anyway, the Journey is not offered here in the states,
