SAFETY | 9 out of 10
“second-row child booster seats, a first in this segment”
standard features are “refreshing”
four-star rollover rating
The 2009 Dodge Journey offers an extensive array of standard safety gear, easily among the best in its class.
Edmunds.com notes that the Journey comes standard with anti-lock brakes, stability control, and side and curtain airbags. A rearview camera and built-in second-row child seats are options, they report. The Detroit News adds that trailer-sway dampening and tire pressure monitoring are “refreshing” standard features.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has yet to crash-test a Journey, as does the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. However, the NHTSA has given the Journey a rollover rating of four stars, which means it stands an 18 percent chance of a rollover in a single-vehicle crash. TheCarConnection.com will revisit our safety rating for the Journey when crash-test results become available.
Not yet crash-tested, the 2009 Dodge Journey has all the safety gear you’d expect--and then some.
