The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
As a smaller crossover, the Journey's a good alternative to the Saturn Vue and Subaru Forester, maybe even to a Dodge Grand Caravan--just don't pile on the expensive options. The 2008 Toyota RAV4 brings a little more space than most compact SUVs without a mid-size price.
