My total cost out the door for my Journey was just over $20,000.00. I purchased the SRT V6 with the 3rd row seating. I went down to look at the one advertised for $13,888.00 but when I test drove it I found out it was the 4 cylinder and oh boy was it gutless! The price was nice if you don't want any power. It did have a lot of added options. I upgraded to the V6 and very happy with it. The transmission switches gears I feel prematurely when taking off as a slow speed. I get about 18 MPG. I don't take off fast but I do have a lead foot on the hwy. I now gas is a concern for many and was for me also but I think overall for a small SUV it does well on gas you just can't be the first one off the starting line.
#9 of 31 MY R/T Finally Arrived

My purchase price after all incentives was a little over $27,000. This was about $2,000 less than when I initially placed my order in December '08. I ordered a FWD R/T with just about everything (no navigation, satellite TV, towing, or smoking).
So far I love it! None of the issues others have mentioned on the various feedback sites. Maybe I'm the beneficiary of waiting to have mine built this past January after the shut-downs. They had ample time to straighten out some of the early first year issues.
So far, so good!
#10 of 31 Dodge Journey SXT FWD
Apr 04, 2009 (4:11 pm)
We bought the SXT. Standard SXT with 7 seat package.
We bought for 18,910 (without TTL before trade with destination) with financing at 2.9% for 4 years.
I had them give us an extra $750 for our trade in, a 9 yr old GMC Safari.
Overall we are pleased. The SXT really seams loaded, dual sided ac/heat control, back ac/heater control, can coolers, dual exhaust, 3.5L with 6 speed tranny. If you want a CUV that you don't ever see around this is one for you.
#11 of 31 Dodge Journey SXT FWD purchase
May 26, 2009 (10:33 am)
The wife and I just bought an SXT FWD with the 3rd row option, Dual temperature ac/heater. remote start and some other little add ons. The MSRP was about $26,300 with black exterior and the dark interior with slate grey. It was listed in the newspaper for 16k and we got it for that price. We traded in our 2004 Murano for 12k too.
We like the vehicle. We loaded it up with 3 adults and 2 kids and got about 24 mpg on a 300 mile roadtrip, which was hard to get in the Murano.
Its not perfect but at the price it was totally worth it.
#12 of 31 Know a Dodge dealer that wants to cut a deal on a 2009 Journey?
Jul 30, 2009 (9:08 pm)
I see from these posts that some people have scored pretty big discounts off MSRP on Journeys. One post details an SXT w/ 3rd row, (MSRP $26,300) selling for $16K. Where can I get one at that price?
Desire a 2009 SXT or RT with 3rd row option. With the 2010 model year coming fast, l am looking for a dealer that will offer a strong price break to move an 09 off the lot. I am in Texas but would consider working with an out of state dealer.

Try carmax.com. They may have one at a price you're looking for. Good luck.
#14 of 31 2010 Journey Discounts
Nov 05, 2009 (7:36 pm)
Looking at 2010 Journey's and I'm not seeing very big discounts. I was hoping to get $1500 rebate plus another $1500 off from the dealer. It's not happening. Dealer offering $1000 discounts (in addition to $1500 rebate) off a R/T model which has a $30,000 sticker. Curious what other people are seeing.

DEALERS ARE TRYING TO RECOUP EVERY DIME THEY CAN. jOURNEY'S ARE IN SHORT SUPPLY AT PRESENT SO THE DISCOUNTS MAY BE LESS.

Journey is getting a major makeover -- supposedly 2010.

True, but I like the current model, especially for the price. I'm sure the re-design will have a more upscale interior and a more powerful engine, but this will surely drive up the price. The current interior on the R/T isn't fancy, but it's not cheap looking either. The new slate interior color looks nicer than last year's 2-tone. The engine is an old design, but it was quiet and smooth and had enough power. I was impressed. I just wish the discounts on the 2010's were a little better.
