I have a 2010 Doge Journey AWD. years now I have had some

Customer Question

I have a 2010 Doge Journey AWD. For several years now I have had some issues with starting the car. It is intermittent and can go for a week without doing this. However, when it happens I have difficulty starting the car. I turn the key in the ignition and it takes a while for it to catch and fire up. Sometimes it tries longer than other times, but it does start. This past week, I turned the key and nothing happened, tried again, same thing, third try, it started. This happened two times last week in the same manner. The service people at my Dodge Dealer said there isn't anything they can do about it unless I get stranded, then the computer will tell them what the problem is. I don't want to get stranded, thank you! I just had the starter motor replaced, just because I was perplexed by this and thought this might help. Any suggestions, guys?
