2016 Dodge Journey: Car Seat Check
The Journey SUV is the most affordable of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ Dodge lineup, with an optional third row and second-row boosters likely to impress families. A lack of top tether anchors in the third row is a big miss.
What We Like
The optional integrated booster seats are simple to use, but they only work for older children. The convertible fits well in the Journey in both rear- and forward-facing positions, and third-row access is simple thanks to seats that fold and slide forward to create a decent-sized pathway.
What We Don’t
Easy to locate and connect to Latch and tether anchors. Plenty of room for the car seat and the child; does not obstruct driver or front-seat passenger legroom. No head restraint or seat contouring fit issues.
About Cars.com’s Car Seat Checks
A child in the booster seat must be able to reach the seat belt buckle, and latch anchors have a weight limit of 65 pounds, including the weight of the child. We use a Graco SnugRide Classic Connect 30 infant-safety seat and a Britax Marathon convertible seat.

Are Car Seats Safe in third row?
Yes, in a vehicle with a third row, the center seat is likely the safest place to seat a child, and I’d estimate the center seat of the third row to be the safest location in a vehicle. This is extremely rare in the United States, but statistically, it’s still safer than forward-facing anywhere else in the vehicle.
