NHTSA says 16,835 Dodge Journeys must go under the knife in order to fix 115v outlet problems. Due to the potential for short circuiting in an unused electrical connector, “dealers will re-route and stow the 115 volt auxiliary power outlet connector and pull the 25 amp fuse to remove power from this unused circuit”.
The Journey, not a favourite of GoodCarBadCar.net, is admittedly a remarkably inexpensive family hauler. With discounts, the basic starting price in America is about $17,792; Canadians are looking at about $19,495. This post regarding Dodge’s attempts to let the Journey fly in Europe has been one of GoodCarBadCar.net’s most popular articles ever.
This Dodge Journey Recall affects ’09 models only and should begin this month.
