problem #3

Journey 2.4L 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 19,529 miles

I think the water pump can't handle the RPM that the engine runs. The revs to 3500-4000 rpm when trying to merge on the highway. I think I picked the wrong engine for this vehicle.

Journey V6

I took it to fix because it has no power, they kept the car for over two weeks, stating that they need to order a part, that they assume it was the problem, The part was on backorder, when finally, they gave me the car I was happy because I test drive the car and it had the power back the way it suppose to, so I thought finally they fix the problem. But guess what ??? wrong, Couple of week after the car starting acting the same way.

I am really sorry I bought this car. It has no power, 3 months after buying the car a whistling noise from engine started after driving 50mph. I have to turn the radio on to drowned it out. It has been to the dealer now three times. No solution.
