05 dodge magnum shifter gets stuck in park due to cheap you plastic in shift assembly. Had it repaired at dealer for 390 but still pump brakes to get it in gear. Engine rebuilt at 60,000 miles due to lifter failure and I use synthetic 05w20 oil. This is my 3rd dodge product, never buy another. I see why they got fined 105 million

Fun, fun, fun!

I am 6' 3" my wife is 6'1" and the youngest daughter is 6'4",,,,,, there is no shortage of room in this car and the 5.7 Hemi has the power to make it move. The suspension rivals many sports cars and the weight distribution is 51/49 front/rear which adds to the handling capabilities. I did not buy it for fuel economy, but at 15 city and 24 highway I am more than pleased. One of the most fun cars I have owned and driven. It's a shame they stopped producing it

Bought this one a few months ago with only 98,000 miles on it. I put mid grade gas. 45 dollars to fill up the tank and lasts a week. Putting about 40 miles daily. As long as oil change plug wires and fuel cleaner is done every 4,000 miles(full synthetic) sea foam fuel cleaner, runs perfect solid smooth. Oil change is about 70 16 plugs runs about the same for good quality. But on the highway no daily driver can catch up to you. Peaking at 148 mph. Back from jersey at night no Lexus or Mercedes can keep up. Warning pistons rated at a max of 500hp. Be careful tuning just add k&n flow master full exhaust w headers and family and muscle car can't ask for more as a family man.

I bought an 05 sxt awd. it now has 89.000 miles on it and I have never had a problem. keep up with the required maintenance and it should last a long time. I installed a mopar cold air intake from mopar performance and bought a predator tuner and did the 93 octane performance tune and what a difference. with the predator it is like a different car. you can change the axle ratio for quicker acceleration and the transmission to shift firmer. you can make the autostik so it will not shift for you so you can actually hold the gear to the full 6.500 rpms.. my magnum is black and gets a lot of compliments. I just replaced the sparkplugs myself and taking off the upper intake manifold is not to bad

Now when I bought this car new it was sitting on the show room floor and was loaded with every option the 05 had listed. Yes I even had heated seats WOW! $43.000 American, my first house cost 23,000. Bought it for my wife with dreams of getting it after she grew tried of it. Still waiting.....1st: The car was making a loud banging sound, when turning while backing up . Like the noise a locker rear-end makes when turning too fast (planetary gears both were replaced)..2nd: Real very weak transmission (everything replaced, was replaced with upgrade parts, from dodge). 4 torque converters later and many trans fluid flushes, it still shakes when it shifts from 2 to 3rd. It used to shake when shifting from 4th to 5th.. Next time the whole transmission will need to be overhauled. Seems the clutches begin to get shiny, from all the slipping. Truly only problems are the drivers seat cover leather and vinyl , replaced twice(vinyl cracks) , painted the front, top and back (clear pealed off), had the planetary gears (both AWD) replaced when new, and the real bad transmission. Seems this car will always have a bad transmission.. Two more real small things ...the GPS knob on the radio fill off and they don't make one that just snaps on, it means I don't have a map anymore.. The third light went out and takes a couple hours to replace, easier to replace the tailgate..Have you ever tried to change the fog lights Ha!

So far so good

I have had my Magnum for about 4 months now and it is one of the best cars i have ever owned. The 2.7L motor has plenty of go, and haven't had any problems with the car so far. The design is nice and it is a fairly comfortable car, even for a guy like myself that is 6 foot 1 and 295 pounds. The seats took some getting used to (my other car is a 1983 Cadillac Deville, so the seats are like couches) but otherwise, i have no complaints. My wife uses this as her daily driver, and after adding a set of Firestone Winterforce studded tires to the car, we had no problems getting through the snow or ice in the winter. Overall, very satisfied and looking forward to owning this car for a lot of years.

I have had my Magnum since 2006 purchased used. Just replaced the breaks and rotors at 76k miles on the front. Had to replace rotors because shop shaved too much off and they warped. Wife was in an accident 9 months ago hit by a Ford 1 ton duly 4wd truck. Hit right passenger quarter panel at 45mph. Repair costs just under $16k but they said the cars resale value was that and repaired it. Car was able to drive to curb but the Ford could not move :) No other problems to report because there have been none.

Initially, I loved this car but honestly how many of all the cars that have ever been made are terrible from day one. There are so many problems, that have nothing to do with operator error, like the windows regulator, headlights that either don't work or flicker and a shifter lever that was made so cheaply that apparently it is just short of recall, the list goes on and on. This car had so much potential, but the shoddy (and overpaid at $75 an hour) workmanship along with inferior parts combine to outweigh any positives or potential for greatness this car had.

I absolutely love my Dodge magnum. Its roomy, versitile, fast, and it looks great. I am in the process of renovating my new house, and I have hauled everything from tools to new hardwood floor to 10' beams (And yes, I was still able to close the hatch). Even with a heavy load the rear struts never bottomed out. The car is very durable and will keep you safe in case of a collision. I was recently struck by a hit and run driver that caused me to lose control and lightly knock the front end up against the barrier. The car was still running silently, and the damage was repairable. The only 2 downsides is the weight of the car which robs a bit from the performance and the average mpg.

In 2006, I bought my 2005 dodge magnum the first time I saw the magnum I knew that was going to be my next vehicle I would own. Well since having my magnum I have put 8 tires on it, 3 tire rod ends,and an all whell alignment cause you can't just have a front or back you have to have them all done at once, brakes for the works all around twice, and the rocker panels are held up with plastic clips that cost $5.00 per clip. The front dash rattles without the heat on. There is so much rattles in the front end. And recently I was driving down the road and it was like it went into neutral all by itself and my headlights go dim just randomly. Great car if you have lots of money for the repairs.

It was love at 1st sight. If a station wagon & the bat mobile had a child it would be the Dodge Magnum. Here I am 6 years & 100k miles later and all I love is marred because the car is made w/rubber and plastic screws. I never neglected maintenance and upkeep. Now the dash vents have come "unattached" to the dash, the toggle for the navigation controls has untoggled and to fix it I have to replace the entire radio system. The front carpet detaches, the rear vent blows sometimes, the undercarriage screws, being plastic have worn out and the under carriage "plate," also made of plastic has split at the screw holes and has to be replaced. Not a good long term vehicle.

I'm approaching 140K and I've replaced the brakes and tires only once (due for both now). This car has a very smooth and quiet ride. I can only imagine that I will soon need to replace my battery, alternator, serpentine belt or something but knock on wood its been solid as a rock. I've traveled 2600 miles pulling a trailer with two ATV's and multiple other long distance vacations and have had great luck. I will drive this one until it dies. If you change your oil and fluids regularly you should have no problems. My engine does not burn any oil and does not have any leaks to this point.

Grandma, me, had to have the Hemi. I was a little apprehensive at first. I have not had one problem with the 5 year old car. Lots of Power, looks sharp, handles well, doesn't overheat like my Camaro did. A/C is cold, power windows work well and don't leak. Very comfortable family car. I have driven it to Idaho twice now. 11 hour trip each way. No problems. I would definitely buy again.

When we purchased the car used, all was well, the car road nice and was quiet, fun to drive. It got 22-28 MPG, depending on conditions, all was well. Now 5 years later, the car misfires, shutters, and the known cause is mystery. It has many rattles and noises in the front end. The seats are not comfortable. We also went through early alignment issues, etc. It also has fairly bad brake fade and shutter, once the discs heat up.

Purchased Nov. 2004 -- the only car I have ever bought new off the lot. The car would be perfect if not for the slush-box tranny. Factory Contis were junk -- 13K miles. Replaced with Goodyear Assurance which are nearing their end at 40K mi. Have Michelin replacements. Issues: front-end clunk at steering extreme limits (I avoid cranking to the limits), alignment twice, popping noise in dash, unreliable rear window regulator, noisy power steering pump (even after replacement). I gather front-end issues are common. Overall, I have been pleased, but really wish there had been a manual tranny option.

Needed a left upper tie rod end and lower control arm for inspection this year. Both key fobs broken. Musty smell when you turn air on or heat in the winter. Will never by a Dodge again. Never again.

Good power and looks with adequate cargo room. Better than expected fuel mileage - 27 highway and 19 highway city. Several annoying electrical problems - rear windows failed intermittently, wipers had glitches, and constant dash rattles that started at 20k miles. Handling is so so for a big and heavy car - no corner carver. Bland but functional interior.

I know that Dodge/Chrysler are going through bad times, but I've been Dodge since my childhood w/my father's Dodge-ram conversion van. Owned two dodges since. Now to my Dodge magnum; loved it from the first time I saw it during a super bowl commercial. (get it!) remember. I own an sxt awd 3.5 liter Dodge magnum and am in nothing but awe and praise for my car. Even after two years. What upsets me is that Dodge has decided to do away w/the mag and replaced it w/the nitro or journey which look good, but don't stand out like my mag. Please Dodge, bring back my mag. It has an all-American muscle style that with a bit more time will grow. Thanks for reading, next step for me an srt8 magnum. (get it!)

I normally keep new cars for about 3 years, and I'm pushing 3.5 on my Magnum RT. However, nothing new I test drive measures up to this car. First, the Mercedes E-class chassis means the car has an excellent combination of performance and comfort (not a typical muscle car). The engine is as strong now as the day I bought it, with surprising torque that makes it feel faster than smaller V8s (Audi S4, Mustang etc.). Has had no problems other than poor stock tires and rotors, and feels solidly built. I'd highly recommend it as a used car since values have dropped - they will likely depreciate little if you buy one now. If you test drive one, you will buy it.

I had wanted one for years and finally bought it after selling my Durango. great looks and a great ride to boot. Tons of room for a family of 4 which saved me from the soul sucking mini- van option. I had tested a 2.7L v6, but it was not powerful enough for that big of a car. The 3.5L has plenty of power. The RWD was a concern in the snow, but the first big snow this year disproved that concern. the car did great with common sense driving. Too bad Dodge decided to drop the Magnum. At least they should have replaced it with the 300C wagon thats available in Europe.

The Magnum is an relatively amazing. It does haul, stuff inside, trailers, and ... It gets great gas mileage, 18 city/24 hwy MPG, for such a big vehicle with so much horsepower. You can take it to the drag strip and run the 1/4 mile anywhere from just under 14 to 14.3 at around 97 MPH stock or run it on a road course. 4 people can easily ride comfortably, 5 if needed. People frequently compliment the car when I am out.

I replaced my 1999 Dodge Intrepid with a 2005 AWD SXT and also a 2005 SXT Inferno Red Magnum. Both cars have performed well and are fun to drive. The AWD has 36,000 miles now and averages 22-24 mpg while the RWD SXT averages 28-30 on trips at 60 mph, freeway mileage drops to 27+ at 70+. Excellent Car with the advantage of looking space age and ready for flight. When purchased I added the 8 - 80 protection and haven't needed anything but normal maintenance and fun to drive.

My All Wheel Drive V6 Magnum SXT is coming up on 59,000 miles and has averaged over 21 mpg. It accelerates like a small V8 (with no wheel spin) and goes through rain, snow and anything else on my 45 mile one way commute. Tracking is excellent--and improved with my only major expense, a new set of Goodyear Comfortred tires at 34,000 miles replacing the original Continentals (which quickly cupped and wore and provided a rough ride). My only other expenses have been oil changes and turning the two front brake rotors at 49,000 miles to eliminate a minor shudder when braking. This is a great car pool vehicle, with plenty of seating and storage room for everyone.

I purchased the Magnum with 1500 miles on the odo. It is loaded. Tarted the boring dash up a bit and put a K7N air intake on it. I have thoroughly enjoyed the car. It drives great accelerates like mad and sounds like and old school muscle car. Only two issues sent it to the shop: rear hatch struts failed and the sat/nav joystick went dead. Minor issues that were replaced under warranty. My dealer, New Century Dodge in Paola, KS, is the best. Only two complaints: The stock tires (Continentals) were terrible. lated 10,00 miles. Class Action suit pending. Sice Crysler tanked, my resale value took a dive. I'm glad I don't want to sell it. Too bad they pulled the plug on this car. It's Classic.

Aside from a few bumps along the way, I have always enjoyed this car. Some warranty repairs needed, but my out of pocket for repairs has been minimal (< $400 over 4 years). Great power and towing capacity (for a unibody). Tremendously sure footed in all driving conditions. Better in winter than a 4x4 pickup. Very comfortable on long trips and 23-24 mpg on the interstates. Was planning on a new 2009 or 2010 version but they discontinued the model so I'll be driving this one til the wheels come off. Only disconcerting issue was a change in alignment specs that made it necessary to purchase replacement components to permit alignment to the new specs (would have met old specs OK).

Bought my Magnum RT with only 30K, black, fully loaded, heated leather seats, GPS, CD changer, sunroof... Love to drive, lots of power, but a bit sluggish when driving in the city. The front end seems to be weak. Had a clucking noise from the front and it ended up being the both strut arms, and the sway bar bushings. Was also told that the tie rod were a bit loose. For that kind of low mileage, I would expect more durability. Winter driving was great. Traction control is almost always on, but had no problems. Would I buy another one, maybe, but it would have to be a car with a Hemi. Once you drove one (Hemi), you will get bored in any other vehicles.

I bought my Magnum with a hundred miles, first year out. I would not recommend this car or any other Dodge product to even my worst enemy! I have had my car in the shop at least 20 times in the past 2 years. 4 times in one year for the transmission! I have called Chrysler Corp about this issue and they do not stand behind their work, they will do nothing for me. If you know what's good for you do not buy this car!

Tires wear every 15k miles. Car pulls to the right, dealer says every thing is OK after 3 alignments. After warranty expired, I have major issues with front end noises. Spent lots of money on tie rods, stabilizer links, tires, bushings, etc. I still have front end noises. My mechanic says get rid of it. Says car has multilink suspension. Too many parts that can break. People wonder why American car companies are going out of business. I'm buying a Toyota next.

I love this car

I traded my 05 Bonneville for the 05 Magnum SXT RWD 3.5L. I am 19 and this is the perfect car- it's definitely a sporty college kid car, and I got mine with under 20k miles for under $10k. What a steal! Gas mileage is not bad. I get 21mpg driving around town but I do a lot of interstate driving and i maintain 25-27mpg. Not better than my Bonneville no, but it certainly gets just as good gas mileage as any other car on the road today. I only wish I had a Magnum R/T. I want the dual chrome exhaust with the Hemi!

Awesome

This is a great car. Look at them at the Auto Show when they first came out. Trunk space seemed small for two kids with double stroller. Decided kids could stay in wife's Suburban. Has 5.7 Hemi, 340 HP plenty to make this car move. Great car to customize, very unique and seems like a "Magnum Club" when driving. Next vehicle will be the same with the 6.1 Hemi. I am 6'4" and have plenty of room in the drivers seat.

So far So good, but have a few concerns

Bought R/T AWD in May 08, Wicked fun to drive! R/T has good pickup in the 3k+ rpm range. Little sluggish off the line. The front suspension concerns me. Has a clunking noise when you run over an abrupt bump (possible tie-rod end ($100) or ball joints($700) I've been told). Front tires seem to be wearing on the outer edges a little prematurely. New Pirelli's=$$ Plan to change tie rod ends with grease fitted ends soon and then rotate tires and realign. Fuel econ is not the best. Around town I've gotten 19 mph. Hope this car stands test of time though? I sold a good Buick Regal GS for this.

Bought this car used with 97k on the odometer. Wife wasn't sure about it until she drove it and fell in love with it like me. I was really surprised with the "snap" it has for a 2.7, it handles beautifully, and it gets pretty good mileage too (28.5 on a 500 mile round trip at 70mph). Only problems so far are alignment (front inner and outer ball joints already, need to do rears) and my wife wishes it had better lumbar support. Other than that we both love the styling and roominess and wish they weren't discontinuing these cars. I am currently trying to talk my wife into another for me to drive!

I absolutely love this car. When I was looking for a car to trade-in for I wanted something with style that stood out from the rest. I would have to agree that the car is difficult to keep in alignment but for a heavy car the mileage is great. We have three daughters and always have enough room for car seats and all of their stuff. A must is the Electronic Stability Program - it really works great on icy roads.

I bought the car used, 1 year old, with 19,000 miles. Now the car has 60,000 miles, the few problems are just little annoyances, the battery light comes on most of the time 10 seconds after I start the car and the driver's side door sometime does not open using the remote. The rest is great. Style, engine, comfort, space. I average 24 mpg in the summer, 21 mpg in the winter, on the highway, not bad for a 5000 Pound car. I am very happy with this car. The handling in the snow is good for a rwd.

I just traded my Durango for the Hemi powered Magnum. Frankly the family didn't need all the space in trade for MPG's. I had to have the utility of an SUV just not the size, but I personally wanted some style. The Magnum was the only option. Toss in the Hemi and it was a no-brainer. I love the agility and responsiveness of the Magnum, the wife loves the practicality, and the kids aren't embarrassed to be seen in it. I've only had it a few days, so the verdict is still out on the quality and reliability. Everything else is nothing less than perfection, given all other things being relatively equal. I hope to enjoy it for many years to come.

Over all I love the look and handling of this car. Plenty of room for the grandkids and all their toys, etc. On the highway gets decent gas mileage however, the intown mileage stinks. The price you pay for the HEMI. Main concern is the transmission leaks and the wheel alignments. We've had it to the dealership twice for both issues and were assured that the problem was fixed; 5 months later we have another transmission leak and it already feels like the front end is out of alignment. (We just purchased new tires before the last alignment)Tires are very expensive for this car and they are already showing significant wear without a lot of miles on them.

This car was great for the first 38,000 miles, then the trans had to be rebuilt. Then at 40,000 mile the trans locked up and was replaced with a brand new one. Two weeks later the new trans had to be rebuilt! The car kept clunking and jerking, they found the drive shaft was bad so they replaced it. Then a strange noise appeared, sounded like a bad crankshaft, but found it was in the trans, so its being rebuilt again. All this in 4,000 miles. Whats really sad is that Chrysler could care less! I would never buy one of there products again! They know these transmissions are no good but they just keep using them.

Love the styling and LOVE the Hemi. We have a family joke, "it's time for a Hemi moment" on the rare instances when traffic has us waiting. Overall, the Magnum RT is a good car. Deceptively fast as it's a heavy car (just watch the traffic fade away in the rear view). Handling is ok. Several small build issues: odometer was 10% off, alignment&tires are difficult to keep true, rotors and gasket on rear hatch have been replaced. Do not drive hard and then pull into a car wash - I'm convinced that the brake rotors wrapped because of this (warranty did cover).

Incredibly dumb that Chrysler discontinued this model. Without a doubt, the best looking wagon to come out of Detroit in decades. After three years, no problems to report on my 2005 R/T. Very fast, nice subtle exhaust note, great mileage - I averaged 27 on the highway at 65 mph. Really like how quiet the car is. Would recommend this as a used car or for those getting the last of the 2008s. Hope to pair this wagon up with a new Challenger in time after the initially rush for them slows down.

I really do. I usually switch cars every two years and have had this one for almost three now, and I plan on keeping it! Not only is it beautiful and unique, it is not bad on mileage for how large it is (I average 19- 20 mpg), it is great for a young mom like me, I can use the back trunk area space for changing diapers, and there is tons of room to get in to install the car seat, and store all the things I lug around. The only thing that has happened (knock on wood) is that the power steering hose blew after 4 months of ownership, but the warranty covered it no prob. It really is an awesome and reliable care, I work for Infiniti and prefer my Magnum over their newer vehicles.

This is a family car with attitude. We love the aggressive styling inside and out. I love how the car just glides over the road, even with all the pot holes from this last winter. The only issue we have had so far is the washer sprayers on the hood broke. Those as well as most of the Magnums parts are "dealer only". We really didn't want to buy a mini van but that was what we where needing, so glad we found this instead.

I would buy a 2008 if I could find one. The RTs must come off a different line than the SXT's because I hardly ever hear of problems.

I purchased a 2005 SXT AWD, new in June of 2005 (cost $31,500). Here is a list of the issues I've had with it. First, after only 30,000 miles, the factory Continental tires would not pass inspection. Second, after numerous visits to the dealer, about intermittent problems with the rear power windows, the window regulator seized up. Just outside of the warranty. (what a coincidence, and I have the other side to look forward to repairing now) The engine has been running rough for the last 27,000 miles and, of course, the dealer has been unable to diagnose or fix. They just perform the basic "shotgun" technique of plugs, wires, etc... I have had the transmission ROM flashed twice and was charged!

The trunk to the wagon has more then enough space, I call this my truck. Handling a load of one adult size wheelchair and four suit cases. The get up and go with my SXT 3.5 ltr high out put engine is enough for me, think of the ticket's I would have with the R/T. Handles well in all weather, only problem I have is it sit's very low to the road watch out for plastic bag they will get hung up on exhaust and start melting. Over all, I know I will have this wagon for atleast ten more years. And yes I can drive 55 but it does want to use it's power which is there

Wake up Dodge, no wonder you are having problems. MPG is not bad, I can get 26 MPG if I keep my foot out of it. It has a good carrying capacity and also looks good. They have no other vehicle that can compete on this level. If I can't get a 2008 I only know that my next vehicle will not be a Dodge. Get one if you can an enjoy both worlds.

A family vehicle but want something with some go. Have had my R/T for three years now (35k miles). This is the first 4 door car I have ever owned (traded in a 04 GTO on this one). Very quiet and comfortable drive with a ton of room. She definately will move out although the Magnum is a heavy car and dont expect cornering like a Vette or pure sports car. Gas mileage really depends on your foot. I typically get about 21 mpg (75% highway 25% around town). Only issues with the car Ive had which many have already noted: 1) Small tranny leak at 15k miles (was O-ring replaced by dealer and no further issues) 2) The OEM tires (Conti's) didnt last long and really stunk in rain/bad weather.

I have 52,000 miles on my Magnum RT. It's an awsome car. Great exterior design, and the Hemi is a plus. I had a tranny leak 8 months ago. It was a seal...the dealership replaced it at no charge. The thermostat was replaced 3 months ago. Other than those 2 discrepancies, I really enjoy driving my Magnum. It is a little slipery to drive in the rain, I think that is typical of any RWD. I plan on keeping my Magnum for a long time...unless I can find another car that is as comfortable and looks just as cool.

The CD player & sunroof (doesn't open) stopped working 3000 miles ago & now the transmission is slipping! Some of this was covered under warranty but much of it has occurred just after the warranty ended. While the trans is still covered, the CD player/navigation system isn't ($2300).

There is nothing I do not like about this car other than they are not making it after 2008. Shame on you Dodge, you never really advertised this car much as it was that was your fault, all things considered it sold well to begin with.

I am sure the list of complaints will be taken care of. Considering the size of the car I cannot complain about the gas mileage- I think it does well for her size and power. We took it to Florida and we were very comfy and it did great on gas. The ultimate "Mom" car that Dad loves to drive to take advantage of the get up and go. Mom is guilty of that too.

First of all I love my car. It seems like I was chosen by Dodge to be the guinea pig for the problems that don't happen to anyone else. Tires lasted just over 22k. Was told I overinflated them, but must've been dealership because I am never one to do it yourself. Tranny went out at 30k (it's a Mercedes tranny too!) & it took forever to fix! Then the temp gauge went out (can't remember why, but they had never seen the problem in all of the magnums they had seen in the shop), window went out, key fob died, still have a popping noise when I make sharp left turns, but never can be heard when in the shop.

First I will list the problems: 1. First set of Goodyear Integrity tires did not last long. The first winter I tried to find Snow tires but they did not exsist in that size. There is a little more selection now. 2. Needed the first set of new tie rods at 34,000 miles. 3. Front braked fell apart at 40K miles 4. At 50,600 miles it needed tie rods again and sway bar links. This time I used NAPA parts with a lifetime warranty. 5. One power window does not work. 6. Check engine light comes and goes but the dealer does not know whats wrong. With that all said I like the car, I fit in it(6'7"). Like the style, its lots of attention. But it makes it tough to reccommend with all the problems

In winter, I down to less than 12 mpg. This stinks big time, especially when it's advertised at 19mpg (city). Dealers/Chrysler won't do anything about it. Not their problem.

I test drove more cars then carter has liver pills and this by far was the most solid feeling car I drove. I feel very safe in it, and I do not have any problem with blind spots. There are now rattles or squeaks and it is the quietest car inside when traveling down the road over anything else I tried.

The Dodge Magnum RT combines great looks with fantastic performance. With the tow package you can pull 3800lbs- a fair size boat or trailer. The car is far more comfortable than you would expect. Excellent seats for the long haul. We drove 550 miles in one day with a 4 year-old in the back and towing a jet-ski, no problem. Even stopped at a museum for a few hours. The luggage capacity is great for travel and with the back seat down you can load an enormous amount of stuff into the vehicle.

This Magnum was a dealer demo with 4900 miles on it. I have had it for 8 months and it now has 19000 miles on it. The car has been great and has required no repairs. Very comfortable to drive the long distances that are required, at times. Getting 22-26 mpg. Would not trade it for any other wagon on the market in its price range. First wagon that I have ever owned that my kids even liked!

You can tell that Mercedes has been involved in the quality of this car. Good tight feeling when you are driving. Handles well in any weather-I live in Northeast Ohio. I bought the car used and have 38,000 miles on it at present. The only problem I had was the tie rod ends needed replaced at 35,000 miles. Started to hear tire noise in the front end and realized the tread was beginning to wear uneven. Not happy with having to spend money on this at 38,000 miles. Mileage good be better. Drove to Wilmington NC and averaged 21 mpg. Love the engine and transmission though-good reponse.

I loved the styling of this car and had to purchase it shortly after it was released. I have had buyers remorse ever since. The reliability of this car has been atrocious and has been in the shop over 10 times within 15 months. #1- the car has pulled to the right since day 1 and they can't fix it. #2- periodic fuel injection issues that took 15 months to diagnose. #3- loud rear wheel noise that they can't repair. I also have to say that dealing with the 3 Dodge service centers and corporate has been a horrible experience. Lease is up in 7 months. I pity whoever gets it after me. I will never buy a Chrysler product again!

This is a car that I believe succesfully fulfills the niche inbetween a minivan, family wagon, and a performance sedan. Since I first saw and read about the Magnum I really liked it. After driving it, I loved it. The car is manueverable in the city and is a great freeway flyer that cruises at 85 MPH all day while getting 24-25 MPG with a 340 HP Hemi. Outstanding!

I bought my Magnum last November. I love the car. I am having problems with water leaking in my doors and falls on the rocker panels. This freezes my doors shut in the winter. So far there doesn't seem to be a solution for this problem. All in all, the car is great. I love driving it. Handles well, looks excellent and is very comfortable to drive and to sit in. Has some blind spots but after driving it for awhile you get use to it. The windshield fogs on the inside quite easily and is hard to unfog for some reason, maybe because the windows are so small. I feel I've made the right choice buying the magnum.

I love this car!!

It is one of the funnest cars I have ever owned. Gets good gas mileage considering the engine. I usually average about 21 mpg. It has been to the dealership a few times. Five times for the same rattle which we finally tracked down to the front passenger wheel well plastic not being screwed in properly. More recently gearshift would get stuck in park. Repaired the brake sensor (twice). For a car in its introductory year, I have been very pleased. Tonight my airbag light came on. I'm going to monitor that situation. I love the roominess. I have a two year old and I love when I speed up and he giggles. I think he likes it as much as I do

The first time I saw a Dodge Magnun, Ithought I was in love.I was so happy when I finally was able to purchase my dream car. My first long ride in my blue beauty was a trip from Rockford,Ill to Waterloo, Ia, to see my mother. Through the hills and curves it was so smooth.It was like riding on a cloud. There were a couple of times I had to pass some semi's and I had the power to do so. I do not have the Hemi engine in it . For me, It is the finest riding machine on the earth. There is so much room for me to haul the thing I need. My kids like to call it,"Mom's little hot rod". Yes, I am one very happy lady with the prettest blue magnum in the world. Thank you,Dodge for my car.

I have been intrigued with the lines of this vehicle for several years. This was when I first saw a fleet of three cars, all black and no chrome with all kinds of strips on the outside and antennas on the middle vehicle. These cars were out for high-altitude testing. At that time, I had no idea what kind of vehicle they were. About two years later, I saw the first vehicle on a dealer lot, and it was the Dodge Magnum RT. I have liked this vehicle since. I have always liked the Hemi engine. The last Hemi I owned was in a 1957 Chysler New Yorker. I wouldn't be surprised if that engine ended up in one of Big Daddy Garlits rail dragsters. This is one fantastic vehicle!

I have had my Magnum for almost 2 years now and have had a ball driving this car. I have had 2 bad and worse experiences concerning the front brakes. At 9000 miles the front rotors where replaced due to very bad pedal vibration. At 23k the vibration was back and the dealed wanted to charge me $180.00 to resurface the brakes. I replaced the rotors with Power slot rotors and CarQuest ceramic pads. The car stops much better than new and for about $600.00 in parts and an hour of my time my family is safe. Overall though, my experience with my Magnum is very positive. My overall fuel economy with the Hemi is about 25.25 highway and 19.2 city Not bad for an American V8 muscle car. Thanks Dr. "Z"

I've driven this car for a year so far, and love it as much as the day I drove it off the lot. The AWD is great in any less than optimal traction situations - it's very cool to just power away up a hill from a stop light in the rain with no wheel spin! It doesn't drive like your daddy's station wagon. The handling is much more like a high performance sedan (i.e. Mercedes). You won't believe the amount of stuff you can get in this thing. The loading crew at Lowe's never thought we'd get a 4 burner grill (in the box) in there along with an arbor, a dozen plants and some bags of potting soil the other day. We've towed a 3400lb trailer on multiple occasions with no sweat. Great car!

I recently bought a 2005 Dodge Magnum SE. The base model with none of the fixings, and let me tell you that this vehicle has all that I will ever need. I fell in love with the Magnum over a short stint working for the dealer that I bought it from. The car I bought became my motivation to succeed. I have owned many cars in the past, but my Magnum is by far the best vehicle I have ever owned. The 2.7L V6 delivers plenty of power, even when I don't need it. It is as civil at 70- 75mph as it is at 30. The gas mileage is acceptable and the ride ie exceptional. Not to mention the turned heads everywhere I go. Do I recommend it? A resounding yes. Add in its versatile nature and the Magnum is #1.

My Magnum has been my favorite car to drive of all the many I've owned. I reluctanly gave up my Mercedes for one and have not looked back since! I would suggest going for the engine upgrade, but even with the 2.7 I still have plenty of fun. I tend to drive my cars very hard, and my Magnum takes it all in stride. Cornering, hard braking, floored at most greens/toll plazas.

I have wanted one of these since they first came out on the market. After finally finding one that was equipped the way I wanted it to be, I have to say that I'm not disappointed in any way with this car. It is extremely comfortable and quiet. The acceleration and handling are amazing,and it is a pleasure to own. Since I am a very descriminating comsumer, the only complaint I could ever have is about the color choices that Dodge is offering this model in. They stink. They are boring and drab and in no way reflect how truly special this car really is!

Have nearly 70,000 miles on my RT. As a former Toyota owner for 30 years it took a lot to bring me to buy a Dodge. This is one heck of a car! It captures the feeling of a 60's muscle car with great fuel economy, comfort, safety, and very high build quality. I went thru the factory in Brampton Ontario and was very impressed by what I saw. A clean super efficient factory where the workers work in teams, totally German influence from Mercedes. Some people may be put off by the rather stark interior, but it grows on you, think German influence. The Magnum is also a great workhorse, carries quite a bit with rear seats folded and a fine tow vehicle with the self-leveling suspension.No complaints!

I love my Maggie!

Magnum RT AWD is a load of fun to drive. Installed an AFE Cold Air Intake - adds 10 extra HP. Car is comfortable, agile and extremely fast. AWD with 4 snow tires easily handles severe winter driving. My only complaint is poor quality and reliability. I've been to the dealer 13 times in the first 4 months. AWD transfer case vibrated - fixed first time, replaced second time. Three new radios replaced in succession - radio ate my CDs. Steering rack vibration - unit replaced. OEM self-sealing tires replaced under warranty after only 8,000 miles. Major suspension rattle. Wiper switch defective. Cupholder lid defective. Front brake rotors warped after 5,000 miles - replaced under warranty.

I love the room in my Magnum. I have no trouble sitting in the driver's seat or the passenger's seat. I have been searching for a vehicle that gives me room with style and performance. And performance, whoa! It does not seem to matter whether you are starting from 0 or traveling at 60 mph. If you apply the gas, you are burning the road. And the best part is that it is so smooth when you call on your HEMI. I think this RT Magnum out performs my Police cruiser! Love it, Loveit, Love it!

Just the leather package and sunroof on this SXT AWD. At 6000 miles reliability has been good. Found random squeaks that will appear for a while then vanish for a month - one was the rear cargo cover when it was extended. It's a great freeway car, speed control even downshifts to keep the speed constant. In town poor visibility can be a problem for backing up, same as a Pacifica I drove. I'm up to 18 mpg in the suburbs driving gently, get 22 hwy. In hindsight, I would have got the protection group, cloth seats, better radio/speakers. This is a very solid, versitile car for active people. I got it despite the styling, but some of you may like it.

I'd done months of research on cars, and the Magnum was the first one I wanted to look at, but I couldn't find one under $20K. We found ours (black with dark tinted windows - beautiful car) for around $16K with 22K miles on it. It's a great car, coming from a 1999 Grand Am with one kid and one on the way. the 2.7L isn't torque happy, but we didn't need a racer, just a daily driver with room for 5 that got good mpg. We've had a couple of problems (brakes and visor clip so far), but it was used, so I wasn't expecting "new-car" functionality. Thank God for warranties, right? If someone asked me what car to get for a family of 4, this would be it. Thanks Dodge!

I need to go by a dealer as I have just started getting a vibration, like running over a washboard, when backing around a corner while it is cold, in the morning. Seems like a positraction problem, like my old Corvette had. Fixed with a can of special oil. Overall, I love it.

I travel all over the country and I carry a large amount of cargo (clothes, golf clubs, household items, etc...) and my Magnum has been OUTSTANDING! Even with the 2.7L the acceleration is adequate in almost any situation and the fuel economy has been fantastic for such a large vehicle (averaging 22-28 depending on speed) even when loaded down. The styling is what drew me to it, the quality is why I'm keeping it until the V6 gives out. Then I can put my own version of the Hemi in it! The ride is so smooth and quiet, even at high speed, and it handles like a car 1000 lbs. lighter (Thanks Mercedes). Got mine for under $20,000, and I'm astounded with its features and looks. Go Dodge!

This car rocks!

I previously owned a 2001 Chrysler Sebring, but was looking for more room. The Magnum was an outstanding melding of cargo capacity, fuel efficency, and the all important, fun factor. I have had not problems with this vehicle and have put over 27000 miles on it. It is great on the highway.

Only problem is, it's so beautiful, I keep finding hand marks on it from people trying to look into the car, and people will insist on parking so close. If your are looking for a wagon, look no further, this car is cool!! Great value for money.

We have had our Magnum about two months now...no problems...gas mileage is improving...to 20mpg highway at 75 if I stay off the Hemi... :) Our only concern is an occasional popping sound in the sunroof when the vehicle body torques. Awesome in a blizzard, better traction and control than my 4 wheel drive truck. The steering is different than any other vehicle we have had, doesn't seem to pull in either direction..just a little more pressure required than usual to steer. Could be because its an AWD. Been waiting for a "stop light jockey" to take me on but they all seem to look over, see the word Hemi on the fender and then pretend to be model drivers... :) Love the car!

I am a mother of a 18 month old boy. I have always driven a truck and didn't want to drive a mini van. I found that the Magnum had the fun look I wanted and a V8. So far since I have owned this car it has been a good car. I liked the way the car handles and the power. I also liked the comfort of the car. On February 17th 2006 I was driving at 5:30 in rush hour traffic with my baby and my transmission went out. Thank god I was not on the expressway. I do not drive this car hard at all and there should be no reason a new car should have transmission problems.

After a year and a half, we are still getting looks and favorable comments.Driving is still a lot of fun and comfortable. On three different occasions I had driven for ten or more hours at one stretch (stopped for gas of course)and felt great.

This is a great car and lots of fun to drive. Gives a super smooth ride with really nice handeling qualities. Great acceleration as well. The only negatives are the Continental Touring tires the car came equipped with. Real junk, only got 14,000 miles out of them. The only compensation the dealer offered me was to get a 25% discount on the same tires! The only other negative is this car is terrible in the snow. Just a few weeks after I bought this car they came out with all wheel drive! If the dealer had told me this I would have waited a few weeks and bought the all wheel. All in all a really nice though.

There is no American built car that can compare to the new Dodge Magnum. You can find a faster car, a better handling car, and a more utilitarian SUV or minivan, but looks and comfort is second to none. What I found so appealing is the ability of one car to do so many things so well. I love to drive the car, use cruise control because it's easy to catch yourself going way to fast. The handling is very predictible and safe, but forget about rain and snow. I believe a good set of snow tires would remedy that, but currently no snow tires are offered in that model, so I ended up buying another car for winter driving.

I love my '05 Magnum. I nicknamed her Maggie. I had a lot of problems with the dealership but Maggie made up for it. The room is great. And the handling is awesome, you would think with such a big car your turning radius would be horrible but she whips right around those corners better than my husband's Accord. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone that wants a lot of room and still look good. It's such a sporty grocery getter!

Before I purchased my 'dream car', I had read and read and read everything I could find on it. While doing the 'test' drive thing at several dealers, my husband would always ask, 'Why don't you try the Chrysler 300' but my mind was made up long before getting behind the wheel....Just the sleek look, especially in the Black. I wanted the everything that the Hemi version had but didn't want the added insurance costs, plus the chance of any speeding tickets so I found an 'Special Edition' SXT with everything I wanted. After after almost a year of driving it, and still answering questions from complete strangers, I am still in love with it! So easy to drive, comfortable and secure..

Although I've had many inquiries form people about asking about this vehicle, I hav not been able to recommend it due to reliability issues. This car has been in the shop for numerous, I would characterize as nuisance problems. The AM portion of the radio has gone out on the car twice. The left rear window has gone out twice. The rear hatch has stopped working. The transmission jerks. Even though this car is a great looker, and is very useful, I don't think I will own it very long.

Purchased in July, and get many looks and compliments, no complaints to date, except mileage around town with "mds" is never above 11.5 mpg. Quality is as good as any other foreign car, and yet it gets more looks than any common Asian or European vehicle. I have the ability to upgrade engine modifications for performance and looks from dodge division, and not to mention aftermarket parts. When I want the power it is there instantly to the point it can be hair raising!!! Best parts of package is traction control it will most possibly never loose control unless pushed beyond it or any other vehicle's limits. Experienced it at 80 mph lost control and came back with no problem.

After two years of trying to decide between an SXT v. an RT we finally made the move. Our SHO was slowly dying and we had to make this decision. After getting a speeding ticket we decided that the RT could become a problem for us. So the SXT won us over. Proformance is equal if not superior to that of the 1993 Taraus SHO. We have had the the SXT for less then a week now and have enjoyed the ride. Take off is there if we want to waste the gas. The seat's fit like gloves and the heated seat's are wonderful if you have a bad back. I can see why this station wagon is in such demand. A bit higher priced then other's but you get what you pay for. Let's see if this will bring us many years of joy

This "sport wagon" brings it. I’ve only had it for about a month and love it. Small issue with the air bag that was resolved. There is some vibrating in the panels or exhaust on acceleration but hope to eliminate that. If you're fuel conscious though go for the v- 6. The hemi is a guzzler. When I'm driving like a normal guy I still only average about 13 mpg in the city at best. The stock exhaust is rather quiet for such a beast of a car. Could use a little more growl. I’ve found a slew of aftermarket parts so upgrades will be easy and fun. All in all I would recommend this vehicle for anyone interested. If fuel is a factor though u will have to sacrifice the power of the hemi for a v-6 :(

Bought my Magnum in June. Within 1500miles had to have the rotors replaced, they were defective. At 3000 miles the A/C was recalled and replaced. Now at 10,000 my transmission failed, started smoking, had to be towed, and it has to be replaced. Fantastic. Good thing I decided I'd buy a new car instead of used, so I'd avoid lots of time at the mechanics. Second Dodge I've owned, and it will definitely be my last. I'm considering contacting the major networks to do a story on the crappy quality of Chysler/Dodge products. Warning to the wise: they may look pretty, but don't get suckered in by a pretty face!!!

The interior space is what sold this vehicle to my husband. I was interested in purchasing a new Sable Wagon a couple years back, and all I can say... "I am glad I waited!". This wagon has just about every feature I want and need. We are definitely looking forward to what the future models improve, but for our very first brand new vehicle, I could not be happier. While the gas mileage is not exactly the best, I gladly give that up for the safeness my family and I feel inside this wagon. It handles nicely and turns easily for such a long vehicle. And while some reports I read "complained" about the smaller size of the rear window, it seems quite adequate and we have had no issues.

I was shopping for a replacement for my '92 Trooper and thought I would have to settle for a so-so small size SUV to get something affordable. I chanced on the Magnum and that was all she wrote. This car has head turning styling and is great fun to drive. The 3.5L engine has plenty of oomph for me and it handles as nimbly as a sportscar. The ride feels like a European touring car. It looks a lot more expensive than it is and I've gotten lots of compliments. Even my teenager thinks it's way cool. My first American car ever - I just love it.

I love everything about my car except where and how the cruise control lever is located. I also own a C-5 Vette and I can honestly say I usually choose to drive the Magnum over it. I never thought I’d say that about any other car. The Hemi does justice to its name. It's got the looks, the comfort, and the power I look for in a car. Just don't expect it to get very good gas mileage, but I knew that was the price to pay for pure happiness whenever I get behind the wheel. It is one of the roomiest and comfortable vehicles I've owned. Plenty of storage.

When I traded in my Grand Cherokee I thought I would miss it, WRONG!! I love the Magnum. The 3.5 provides plenty of power and sounds great. It handles like a dream and is comfortable. I have 3 kids and it has the room I need more than the Jeep did! The kids have a ton of leg room and I feel safer. The gas mileage I get averages 24 mpg around the city and 29 on interstate. The a/c cools it down quick when we were at the beach in 115 degree weather. It has the pickup you need to get on the interstate or to pass. Did I say it was FUN to drive? LOVE IT, I hate mini vans and this is the perfect alternative to a SUV & Minivan. Not only in performance and roominess but in fuel economy. BUY ONE!!

I now have 6,500 miles on my new Dodge Magnum RT. I really love the performance of the 5.7 Hemi engine, (Especially with the "Magna-Flow" muffler system). For the size of the engine and the weight of the car, I think the average 18 to 20 MPG I am getting is really awesome. This car handles really well and has a very smooth & quiet highway ride. It is a very roomy "Muscle car" that has the power you need when you need it.

I had this car for 4 days before the engine blew (200 miles on it!). I was convinced that it was a lemon, but the dealership said it was a problem with the car and would not be covered by warranty. I'll take their word and assume it is an awful car. And Daimler Chrysler has backed the dealership! Beware-if you buy this car (or the 300, Charger, or any other car with the same platform) and you have problems, they will not take responsibility. I had heard similar things but wanted this car so badly, I took a chance on it anyway. Biggest mistake of my life. I am actually left hoping that the engine problems continue so I can take them to task and claim it as a lemon. I am a VERY angry consumer!

tThis vehicle is a lot of fun to drive. My wife and I will sometimes fight about who will drive. I used to drive all the time, but now she wants to drive. This is the only car that I like more than my pickup. We try to find reasons to drive this car. We have two other cars that we drive to work, but this is our favorite.

Sluggish with the V6. 2nd gear is too tall. No torque below 3,000 rpm. Desperately needs a 5-spd auto, not 4! The steering is too much on-center. If there's a groove in the road, the Magnum will find it.

That is one fine machine!

Alignment problems, (Car pulls slightly to the right) - I don't know yet, however I am starting to believe the tug is radial related at 6000 - 9000 miles... Dealer thus far has not mentioned radials and has aligned the car without fixing the problem. Going to asecond dealer soon!

I love the car! It has left a bit to be desired in the efficiency area, but this is the price you pay for power and a heavy foot. Although i still pay even when the foot isn't so heavy. Living in Brooklyn and commuting to Manhattan takes its toll on you in the wallet at the pump. Oh, and whats up with nowhere to put the gas cap. How stupid is that?

The engine rocks. The transmission enhances the engine performance. It's a very powerful, practical, fun-to-drive, stylish car. I still drool when I look at it! However, the cosmetics in the cabin are not the most durable ones. I have had the visor clip, the sunroof, and the seal for the back spoiler changed. The quality of the paint is also poor.

For those who don't like SUV's and SUV prices, and need the extra room not found in sedans, this the the perfect pick. Add to that, plenty of power and distinctive styling and you are set to go. Manufacturers rebates are also welcomed. Oh, did I forget to mention the Hemi, and upcoming Magnum SRT8. The car is heavy and you'll feel it. the seats are comfortable all around, MP3 6 cd sound system w/satellite option is a nice feature. Visibility stinks but thats the price you pay for the styling. Overall, I might just replace it with the Hemi once the lease is up. This is my 3rd Dodge and I'm satisfied. My advice. Test drive one. You'll either love it or hate it.

It is a fun car to drive, and it really gets going when the need is there, especially when getting on the freeway. I love the feeling of being at home in our car. It is very comfortable.

I just bought my Magnum 2 months ago and I absolutely love it. The body design is amazing. I love the hard edges and lines throughout the vehicle, and it carries over to the inside with the same style that looks simple and not so flashy, but also captivating at the same time. Everything is laid out perfectly on the interior. From the way the guages are set up, to the radio and AC controls. The simple accents of chome along the inside make it work so well. The car drives amazingly, to say the least. I purchased the 3.5 ltr SXT and must say that it is enough power under the hood to satisfy me completly. The car rides so smooth it is almost unbelievable that it is not a whole lot more expensive.

Possibly my all-time favorite vehicle!!!

Don't be fooled by the "station wagon" description assigned to this beautiful, terrific machine (although we appreciate it, because it no doubt helped with our insurance rates)! The Hemi engine is awesome, and isn't the gas-guzzler you might think. Over the years, we've owned Corvettes and Cadillac Allantes - our Hemi-powered RT gets as good or better gas mileage than they did. We read a review recently that trashed the cruise control system in the RT (mainly its location) which totally amazes me because its location on the steering column is one of the most accessible/handy I've ever used, and it's very easy to manipulate. Go with the RT - I promise you won't be disappointed!

When the Magnum was released it was a true dream car that was affordable for me. The looks, roominess and sticker price drew me in. This sporty wagon is head and shoulders above my old '96 Intrepid. Interior is clean looking, the console is very practical and once driving the car you can 'feel' the 'Mercedesness' coming through, which I like! The engine compartment is very tidy and everything a consumer needs to access is easy to find. Passengers in the backseat will enjoy the roominess and the back window goes all the way down! I'm satisfied with the 3.5L engine's performance and the 4-wheel disc breaks do a great job of stopping this heavy car! A true value in today's market.

We went to buy a new Grand Caravan and I looked at the Magnum. My wife didn't care for it, but I told her to drive it to see how it handled. That was it. She loved it and I must say it is without a doubt the best car I have ever owned. Handling, ride, power, comfort on long trips. We travel to Florida for the winter and fuel mileage was as quoted. Now have 8,000 miles on it, no problems except for two bad tires.

I love the styling and power. I accept the poor milege. The steering colunm, tilt wheel, turn signal, cruise control, and power seat operation seem to be for another car(Mercedes?). None of the above features match the feel or operation of any of my other Chrysler cars.This car definitely needs seat memory with two drivers. My wife broke a fingernail the first time she tried the power window switches.The fiberglas rear cargo insert is a drop-in loose fit that is not mounted in any manner. I would hate to think where this heavy piece would fly to if I ever had a front end collision. Good car that misses on the details that makes a great car that you wnnt to drive foreve

I must say I really love my Magnum. It really does have the power you want when you ask for it. The design is what got me interestested in this car, I love the low slung broadbased wheel stance and it just squats down and takes off when I put my foot in it. I bought the car in Nov. 2004 and it has 11,200 miles on it. Since I got it , I have taken trips from Tucson Az to Roanoke Va round trip and in March to Kansas and Missouri and back and had no problems of any kind with my car. Of course the gas mileage was't the best, but hey it's a HEMI. Want do you want, your cake and eat it too?

My Magnum is one of the prettiest wagons I have ever seen or owned. It handles like a sports car rather than a wagon. Magnum has plenty of power when you call on it and believe me when I say it will run 0-50 in roughly 5 secs. With the ESP feature the Magnum sticks to the road like a road racer, and it is next to impossible to lose control of the car. Like the salesperson who sold it to me said, about the only way you can lose control is if you fall asleep at the wheel.

Averaging 19 mpg. Not bad for the fun I've had in it. The power is great. Too much plastic in the build. Grill is plastic, fenders are plastic and the dash is made out of something that sinks under any weight at all. But these are asthetic issues. If it was made like a Lexus, it would be priced like a Lexus and I wouldn't be driving it. Compared to a 99 4runner, it drives like a dream. My wife drives a 98 4runner, and when we switch cars, I feel like I'm trying to run in iron boots. The Magnum flies.

In 50 years of driving, I've owned a lot of new cars from all price ranges. This Dodge Magnum exhibits the best overall quality of any vehicle, foreign or domestic, that I have ever purchased. It combines great looks, great performance, and solid quality. I waited for GM to come out with something like this vehicle and they never even came close, so my next new car in a few years will likely be another Dodge Magnum, probably the SRT. With the Magnum, American made cars are again fun to drive.

The ride while tight is very smooth with no intrusive harshness. Just right for long rides on both backroads and the interstate. Fuel economy for a large high power v-8 is outstanding!

The car ride is smooth and quiet. I would reccommend this car to any one.

I have been admiring this car from afar since the day I saw it. I was driving a F150 to and from work and as a primary mode of transportation until gas hit 2.15 a gallon. That day I decided that I was not going to put more that ten dollars into my truck and hopefully I could make it to the dealer. I am six foot six so a Honda was not in the running. I sat down in the Magnum adjusted the seat and fell in love. Plenty of leg, knee, shoulder and head room. I decided to get the 2.7 engine instead of the Hemi based on the huge price jump for the Hemi. That was my only let down. Other than that the 2.7 has plenty of get up and go and I can save even more in gas.

It's ultra cool, and so much more!

The stereo system is lovely. I really like the steering wheel& the big console, I can easily stuff my purse in it. :) It's a pretty big car, but it doesn't feel like it when I drive it.

Wow, steering took a little bit of getting used to. It is very precise. Where you point is where it follows. Does not drive like a big wagon, inspires you to take curves quickly. Feels like a car that cost 20,000 more.

I bought this car for my wife, but we both love to drive it! We haven't had it very long yet, but we are still having that "new car" experience. The handling is amazing for a relatively heavy rear-drive car. Steering is quick and very little effort is required. We especially like the features such as lumbar support for both front seats, power adjustable brake and gas pedals, and a very versatile rear loading configuration. The electronic stability program gives the rear drive a much better feeling of control on slippery surfaces. Braking is outstanding. The drive is smooth and solid, thanks to the 120" wheelbase. We haven't yet assessed the gas mileage, but it seems to be as advertised.

Love my car

Love the styling inside and out. Generous room inside for passengers and cargo. Great RWD chassis, brakes and steering, fun to drive too. Some build quality issues - Choice of plastics inside a bit too cheap looking, also the way some of them fit is a little dissapointing. I have some wind noise issues with the car but overall am very pleased with it. Oh one thing, the dealer network varies from very good to absolutely frustratingly lousy.

I am a working mother of two girls and I wanted a car bigger than a sedan- not a SUV, and definitevely not a mini van because I hate looking like a "soccer mom" in them (though that will never apply to me anyway!). The Magnum was the perfect choice. It is big, brute and sturdy looking but it drives very well, very smoothly. The perfect car for a once-tomboy now professional mom. It also catches people's eyes - twice I've had two men telling me their love my car. So do I!

The car handles like a dream. I took it on a trip to Virginia in early Dec. I had absolutly no problems. I think I helped to sell at least one Hemi to a trucker and his wife at a truck stop. They saw the vehicle at the pump, came over to me and wanted to see the engine and the other things about the car. They said they could not find a HEMI at any dealers where they shopped. As they walked back to thier truck I overheard the wife say, "Well I guess we are going to trade our old station wagon." I hope I sold one for you.

I recieved delivery on the 2005 RT Magnum in early January and have put a couple of thousand miles on the car. The GRIN comes when you step on the accelerater and the 345 horses come alive. What a pleasure being able to pass, enter X-ways, without effort. The suspension and ride qualities of the car make it truly a banker's sports car. The 18" sticky Continental tires and the ESP feature gives me confidence in handling high speed curves. Another GRIN feature is the number of people who comment on the looks of the car. Stop at a light and you will be looked at and probably get a thumbs-up and grin.

Love my Magnum RT

I was hesitant to spend $30,000 on any car classified as a "station wagon." But the styling grew on me, and the 340-hp HEMI goes a long way to dispelling myths about boring station wagons. The car handles better than any other 4,000-lb. full size car I've ever driven. I'm getting about 18 mpg city and 21 or 22 mpg highway, which is quite good for a car this size with this much power. I use the recommended mid-grade gas. This car is fun to drive and comfortable on long trips. I have had the dealer fix the "pulls to the right" problem, and I had to have the rear seat center seat belt replaced because the retractor jammed.

Extremely happy with car The performance of the 2.7 with the 3.90 rear end rocks. Love the styling but just didn't need the Hemi. Car seems well thought out & shows a strong Dailmer influence. I bought the basic blacked out no chrome model & installed 22" black wheels. The car was obviously made for these wheels It gives the car a kind of European/retro 70's blackout look. Good comfortable road car with a Detroit Iron feel. To be able to put the grocery getter on the road is a great versatility. I've forgotten how much better a road trip is in a good road car.

Yeah it's not a Hemi, but my Magnum has plenty of performance. It handles as if it was a sports car. And I've never owned a new car that commanded ongoing accolades. Magnum is the benchmark auto for station wagons and four door sedans for this decade. I'm 6 feet tall and our friends in the rear seat are not sitting with their knees higher than their head. This is the crossover car of the year

Simply put, it has been the perfect car. Incredibly fast and smooth, very comfortable, plus loads of utility. Had an '03 Explorer before and sold it to a family member. Recently drove it again and couldn't believe the difference between it and my Magnum. The Dodge's handling and ride are incredible and you feel so much more in command when driving it. Now I'm spoiled for life! People seeing it think that because it sits lower and the windows are narrower, there's not much space inside, but the interior is incredibly roomy and comfortable, and you can easily seat three in the back. This car has made station wagons cool again!

Wow ! I never thought I would see station wagons come back, and certainly not like this. The styling, the handling, the power; all amazing. I got the SXT with AWD and it really handles so wonderfully, you'd think you were driving the Daimler car that they took the 3.5L engine out of - the ride, the feel, the overall quality of this Dodge is more than the sum of its parts.

Not your ordinary station wagon.

This is a great vehicle for the 30 - 40 something guy with a family. Gives you all the performance, luxury, and utility a family man could want. It's definitely a good compromise between performance and luxury. BTW... this is probably not a good daily commuter car since you'll never get the MPG Dodge advertises. Plus you have to buy medium grade fuel (89 or better). All that said, I like the car a lot. It's the best thing on the market now and for 2006.

I test drove the RT and the SXT and decided to go with the Special Edition SXT that offered what I was looking for....being a "Grandma". I didn't think collecting speeding tickets with the Hemi would set a good example. I picked it up and drove all day...what FUN..all the comments about people looking and pointing and asking questions are TRUE!!!! I had read and read all the reviews for the past 3 mos.and really wondered if it wasn't just being overrated by everyone..After going 2 miles on the test drive, I was a believer..As the saying goes....Try it, you just might like it! Quiet, QUICK, Sturdy, beautiful...I could go on and on but you need to see for yourself.

The best buy for me in a long time. I wasn't sure whether to get an SUV or the Magnum SXT, but after owning mine for 3 months now, I know it was the right decision. Fuel mileage, handling, roomy interior and the excitment of driving a "Grocery Getter" that turns head was more than worth it. The whole family loves it and my kids call it the "Beast" :)! If you think of getting one (Dodge has come a long way with improvements and quality) take it one for an extended spin (highway, backroads and city) and I'm sure that you'll get it. It's worth checking out if you're in the market for a new, sporty, head-turning car (even for those in a mid-life-crisis)! I love my Mangnum "Beast" SXT, You'll too.

I have had a problem on slick roads (midwest) with the anti-slip differential. The traction is very poor for this vehicle. I was told Mercedes had the best anti-slip differential on the market and this car would not have any problems. Not true. I don't like the mixture of the shiny chrome and brush interior items and I am disappointed in the passenger side leg room. When I have someone six feet tall and taller they are cramped for knee space with the seat all of the way back. I had a fog light get broken when I hit an animal in the road and to have it fixed cost $260; which I thought was a little extreme.

Everywhere I go, people ask about this car, she's a real head turner. And she is a DREAM to drive. You just feel so comfortable in her. You feel like you become a part of her.

The design and performance are all they were professed to be. The mileage is what you'd expect with a thirsty Hemi. Interior quality is a disappointment with plastic appointments. Interior visual field is a definite weakness with door columns and small rear window limiting. None the less, I love it. It's a great driving machine.

I took my white RT on a trip from South Bend, IN to Tampa, FL during record setting snow falls in Kentucky and Tennesse. I was able to open it up on Rt. 57 thru Illinois which was real fun. Got lots of looks. I hit the snow in Kentucky. I was extremely pleased with the handling of the ESP system. I was able to run at 40 mph, which in those conditions was flying! I was amazed at all of the high priced cars off the road in ditches ect... Spent pretty much of Xmas eve on I-24 in Tennesse. Things finally got moving again about 2pm and I was off to the races. I want you to know that this car makes you forget that you are diving long distances. Oh yeah!!! 22 mpg SWEET:)

It's powerful engine makes driving up twisty mountain roads nearly effortless not to mention the superb handling which makes the car feel "glued" to the road..

The Dodge Magnum presents a radical shift for the Dodge line. Style and functionality mix to provide an outstanding people friendly wagon with style. This class of cars has recently been showing its age. The Magnum breaks this mold and produces a handsome car with excitement and curb appeal. Unheard of just a year ago. The All Wheel Drive is excellent in snow and when mated with the Hemi engine Shows none of the customary reluctance of 4- wheel drive systems. Wonderful!

The Dodge Magnum is having a problem with the front end pulling to the right. Iv'e had it in the shop 5 times since I purchased it in August. It's better, now the car just drifts to the right, but on a distance drive your arm will still be sore .Dodge said its engineers are working on the problem but its been a couple of months. Though I'm past the lemon law, I love the car and dont want to give it up. I hope they come up with something soon!

Love the look and it is fun to drive. A very smooth ride. Great handling. People are definitely interested when I drive around. I see more Magnums around the city now and wave. Watch out when you have a lot of cargo because it will cause you to bottom out. And make sure the tires are inflated properly. The only things I've had problems with, is the sensors going off; the "Passenger Airbag off", the "ESP not working" light... things like that, but they weren't permanent and nothing to go crying to the dealer about. (I did call them though)

When many people choose form over function, Dodge has come out with a car that finally has both ideas in mind! What is better than having a grocery getter family car that can take on the other V8's and rice burners that tool around town. We are so happy with this car that everytime we see it, it makes us smile. There's nothing like knowing that when you need the horsepower it's there for you. As far as those people who are complaining about it being a gas guzzler, wake up! You have a HEMI so you knew the consequences!

After seeing the introductory annoncement on the Magnum I was pleased to see eye catching styling, but that is only exterior appeal. The real test came, after a lot of research, to the test drive. I found the advertisements to be every bit as honest as the researchers/road test folks had stated. A GREAT RIDE AND EXCEPTIIONAL PERFORMANCE!

With cruise set at 65mph I averaged 24.5 mpg on I-25 south heading for Santa Fe over the holidays. I have towed a 14 ft. enclosed Pace trailer with ease. Mileage while pulling the big trailer fell to 12 mpg. I average 20-21 mpg on combined city/highway driving. The mpg drops into the teens if you indulge the urge to feel the hemi do it's thing.

We went from the Ford Excursion into a new Magnum, and I must say, what a pleasant transition from a lunker truck SUV to a performance wagon. Actually, you don't even know you're driving a station wagon in the Magnum RT. Not only is the Hemi power impressive, but it rides so smooth and quiet (almost too quiet) inside. Nice stereo and sport interior are easy on the ears and eyes, too!

I never thought that I would own a station wagon. But the Magnum 2005 is not your average station wagon. This car has style, plenty of speed and pick up, even with the smallest engine. For me: Hemi = speeding tickets. I wanted the blue, however not in stock. Test drove the silver/grey and once I was behind the wheel, I did not care what color the outside was. Very low road noise, smooth handling, plenty of interior room and awesome body style, who really cares what color the exterior is as long as you can get one. My brother just drove mine for the first time and now he wants one.!!

I chose the 2.7L Magnum. Black on Black. For such a large car, I couldn't find another that would beat the gas miliage. I am getting an average of 30 miles to the gallon on the highway and a tank of gas will last me almost 2 weeks going to and from work. I use my car for customers and they love it. It has all the room I need for their bags and carryons as well as comfort for the trip. While I have heard some things about the 2.7L not be enough for this large car, for me it's plenty. It has the power when I need it and then drops to the cruise mode when I'm in fast lane. I can drive this car and 115 and it feels the same as driving at 55mph. And yes it will reach 115 with not problems!

Cut of the restricters at rear end, and gained 35 more HP! Removed the Boston Premium sound system and replaced the entire system with Eclips. Fuel milage is fantastic, averaging 25 MPG as I drive from 1800 feet up to 5000 feet on Sunday and back down on Friday every week. Also doing approximatelly 1500 miles per month from Scottsdale Az to Sadona Az. Best car for the money I paid, and I have a BMW Z4, Porsche Turbo and 1976 TR6.

Every day backk and forth to work is about 20mpg, constant city stop and is only about 14mpg. Quite secure ride. Electronic Stability Program (ESP)is fantastic on wet roads you swear this thing has all wheel drive.

I drove the 2 wheel drive model a few months ago,and liked it alot. I decided to wait until the AWD model came out before buying one. I am very happy with the one that I bought. It really is a pleasure to drive this car. It is very comfortable, solid and quiet going down the road. For a car in the $30,000.00 price range,it really has alot of good features. People do notice it when I drive it.

We bought the RT-fully loaded. The driving pleasure and comfort is extraordinary. Acceleration is firm and steady, with no delayed action. There is a very snug feeling with the lowered windows. The storage capacity is surprisingly ample. It is dressy enough to take clients to lunch, while still having the ability to "truck" some things around.

This car ROCKS. I was sold before the test drive. While there are a few minor upgrades I would suggest, this is without a doubt A MUST HAVE. In the RT Model, the only improvements I would suggest are having the front passenger seat be completely automatic. The half auto, half manual doesn't make sense and is not convenient. The head lights need an auto selection to turn themselves on and off, as most cars of this caliber have. Making the VES (Video Entertainment System) standard on the Navigation System in the RT Model would be a nice touch. Overall I would rate the RT Magnum at a 10+!

The last really neat car I owned was in 1962, a 1959 Austin Healy 3000. I had been looking at a new SUV after 6 years of a Jimmy. Couldn't get excited about anything. Then I saw a Magnum and I was sold. This car really turned my head, and when I started reading about it I decided I wanted one. I ordered one back in July or so, and had to wait until November to get it. Well worth the wait. What a car, what a ride. We took a 200 mile trip the day after we got it, and I knew I had made a good decision. Mileage was about 21 mpg for that trip, and I am told that will impove once the engine breaks in.

JUST LOVE IT!

It's zippy, has pep, plenty of room to haul groceries for a large family, haul stuff to the beach (including surf boards - even a LONG board!) Took it into the mountains this fall, it took the steep inclines with no problems.

It is very roomy and has plenty of space. I am 6'5" and still have room to move my seat back if I want. Very stylish and holds the road well. Haven't seen the gas mileage others have been getting. I'm averaging about 16 mpg. Wish the GPS was touch- screen instead of using the joystick. Cool vanilla color is absolutely COOL. It truly stands out!

A very tight, solid and powerful ride. The passing capability is incredible. I recently purchased a large gas BBQ still in the box and it fit right in the back with the seats folded down (nobody at Lowes thought it would). Very roomy inside even with 5 pasengers. I only have one complaint, quite a bit of tire or road noise (loud hum) when crusing on the freeway. You don't here any road noise in city driving just on the Freeway. I use the Magnum as my work car and it is the best yet.

A very comfortable ride. The car has much more get up and go than expected. It also attracts a lot of interest and attention. This vehicle is smaller than any I've owned in many years, but it doesn't handle as such. It handles very much like a larger luxury vehicle. There is lots of foot room for rear seat passengers, which is another great feature. All in all, I would highly recommend this vehicle.

Already had to take it in for Airbag light and now have a slight pop in the dash. No biggie, just annoying. The "trunk" area is kinda cheap, but my last car was a 323 Wagon, so I am getting used to driving an American car again. Overall, very happy as long as it last four years.

I drive many new cars. Dodge was reliable in that there was always wind noise, excessive road noise, steering wobble and generally less control that one would want. The Magnum RT HEMI is an entire different machine. The undesireable noises have been handled to a large degree. The winner is the front suspension, wheel/tire size and the star is the Hemi Engines performance. The vehicle response is almost to much. Acceleration is great and the RWD makes good use of all the power. Sudden power spurts at freeway speeds for lane change ie passing, on off ramp performance and emergency deceleration are all outstanding. Ist's hard to find a dealership that has one in stock and most dealers

I bought the car that the dealer ordered because the one I had ordered wasnt near the point of being built.That is one point I would like to make if you are planning on ordering an RT...plan on a good long wait. Mine has been on order for three months and is still not built. It is a beautiful Mineral Gray with gorgeous leather seats. One of the best new cars I have ever purchased. Very solid feel good power and great handling. I felt right at home in this car from the first time I drove it.

As for styleing, drive one for the day and see the looks you get. People ask all kinds of questions about it. The first time you are walking into a parking lot and you see your Magnum amung plain cars that all look the same, you will be as happy as I am about a well rounded station hot rod... ZOOOOMMMM

This is one of the sweetest vehicles I've driven. Plenty of room and feels like you were shot out of a gun when you walk on it at any speed. Has a nice exhaust note without being intrusive, handles great with a firm but comfortable ride. I guess the styling is love it or leave it as there is nothing out there quite like it. I personaly love it and find I have more compliments and questions from others than I have ever had before, and I've had a lot of new vehicles. The gas mileage is respectable about 19 MPG with a 50/50 mix of hiway and city driving, going up to 28 MPG on a hiway trip. Winter driving is OK but on glare ice it could use a set of ice radials, which I can't find in this size.

Just bought the Hemi RT, this vehicle is comfortable, handles well, awesome power and great looking. Got the Bright Silver Clearcoat w/ sunroof and roof rack ne other option, comes well equipped. Friend owns a Chrysler dealership and said going for other options is a waste no trade in value. Highly recommend. Do not know mileage yet, have only driven for one week.

What a blast to drive! This ride purrs at 90, and yearns to jump over 110, without any stress. A great highway cruising vehicle--and makes for a fun ride to the coast. My two 9-foot longboards fit with ease. Exterior styling is aggressive and bold- -projects its "wanna rumble" attitude with confidence. I get many Mustangs and Vettes that want to play on the highway- one light tap on the accelerator and they're wiping the sand from their eyes...

What a great car! I've never owned a car that accelerates AND turns heads this quickly. Hemi engine is a must. Interior is comfortable. Heated leather seats great for Chicago winters. $1800 is worth it for the navigational system and 6 disc CD player-makes it fun to drive. Too new to know about reliability. Only complaint is that angle of rear window makes it get dirty easily. Just keep it clean.

The 3.7l v6 provides ample performance, although if I had the cash I'd have bought the V8--quieter and smoother ride (drove both) but the big v6 is no slouch and its quieter than other vehicles I test drove. The exterior is a head turner. The interior is more than comfortabe witht he leather seats. Despite what the reviews said I didn't find the stereo to be difficult to operate, however the reviewers are on the money when it comes to rear visibility--the wide posts leave wide gaps in your rear view. Overall I love it.

I've had my Magnum RT nearly 3 months now, and love it. Everyone stares at it and many ask about it and want to know how I like it. It's roomy, gets good mileage for a high performance vehicle, and handles great for it's size. It's a superb replacement for my SUV. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants/needs a vehicle with some room, performance, handling, looks and descent mileage, all at a resonable price. My two thumbs go up for this "sports tourer". I enjoy driving it so much that I get Magnumb!!

Design of Magnum is great. I got the first Magnum delivered into Knoxville,Tn. on 05/26/2004. I had ordered the car on 02/07/04. I have never had as many coments as I have had on this new car and I have owned several new cars.I love driving the new Magnum and I have had only 2 problems with it. It has a right hand pull and high speed vibration. They have came out with a bolt kit for the cradle or K member, to give a caster and camber adjustment to eleminate the right pull and load balance of the tires and wheels fixed the vibration. The car is fun and powerful to drive and sure turns heads. Yes it does have a HEMI.

This vechicle is a pleasure to drive and ride in. My husband and I truely love the room and the feel of this car. We are able to use this car to travel in and have the room we need to haul 3 grand sons in and around. The looks we get when we drive the magnum are unbeleiveable. I think the black color is the best out of all the colors. The special feature of the car going into a 4 cylindar at around 50 miles per hour give you a great gas milage for a hemi. We just love it and you will to if you give it a chance. We were an Intrepid owner since 1993 and owned 7 of them, so to go to the magnum was a big step for us but a very great one.

Three weeks ago, while driving my 2 week-old Magnum, I was sitting, stopped in traffic, on x-way when a Honda SUV rear-ended me at 55-60 mph. It spun me around and into the other lane. The driver's seat was laid back and the damage was so severe that the rear seats were laid forward and would not raise. I could not walk or breathe, and was taken to ER. 5 hours later, I went home with no broken bones, just internal bruising and very sore ribs. The car was totaled. Today I got my 2nd Magnum. I think the weight of the car and good construction saved my life. How's that for a rear-end test crash testimonial? Thanks for making a good strong vehicle.

This is the finest, fastest vehicle I have ever owned. The Hemi delivers smooth, rapid acceleration and superior performance in all driving situations. The fuel economy for a Hemi powered vehicle is really amazing. I actually averaged 26.1 MPG on a trip. The only thing I don't like about it is the front end is too low to the ground resulting in the front lower clip hitting curbs sometimes when parking. Overall I would rate it as a 10. A very wise buy for the buyer looking for a great car with all the luxuries of many higher priced luxury cars.

This thing is just a cool car , go with the larger wheel and tire package and get the 5.7L Hemi at whatever cost, you won't be regret it. The Hemi runs as a 4-cylinder on the highway. And it handles excellent, smaller turn radius than you think. The V6's are pretty stout too.

Looking for a family vehicle and ended up with a classic. This wagon has everything I need covered. From its great looks to fuel economy I've been smiling since purchase. As a father of four small children, the wagon carries everything I need, as A daily commuter, it's got the performance to get in and out when I need it, and as a 43 y/o teenager, I enjoy the looks I get when out cruisin. The sound system is extreme and a pleasure to listen to, and the whole package cost me much less than I expected. Dads everywhere are going to thank Dodge for this artwork on wheels. I totally recommend this ride to any Dad on a budget, it beats the wheels off of anything else out there.

A real pleasure to drive, turn the ESP off, place right foot on floor and hold on. It reminds me of the late 60`s. Oh and it can carry a crapload of stuff. The roof line and quarter windows give the car a look that I somehow associated with an old Nomad wagon. One item that I don`t like is that I don`t have headlamps that come on automatically. Overall a great machine.

I rented this car on a recent trip and was very impressed overall, but not by the 2.7 Six cyl. My couriousity got the better of me and I test drove the Hemi. BIG MISTAKE. I was sold right there and then. I have had more attention with this car than I know what to do with. People follow me in stores and out to the parking lot asking to see the car. I feel like I'm a spokesperson for the company. People wave me down at intersections and at gas stations inquiring about the car. I thought I would never own a station wagon, but as the saying goes, never say never. Plus the aggresive styling and suburb handling made the sale of this car a lot easier. Dodge did a great job!

My Magnum RT RWD is a keeper. People stop, point, talk, stare and roll down windows, they ask "What is it? or "Love your car". It is thumbs up everywhere. Manual trans is a blast - winding roads or freeway. Huge inside for towing or guests. Stero rocks. Satelite radio is fantastic. U connect is the best and safe and really works! Love the car, but ran out of gas twice already by not watching the gauge. It goes and goes fast and is expensive to keep filled and prices are not going down. Dealers are demanding $5K-$10K over MSRP and not budging in negotiations so far.

I never thought I would have so much fun driving a car before. This car has not just Get Up and Go, its got GUIDDIE UP AND GO!!!!! I purchased the V-8 Hemi. Gas Mileage is not so good, but I knew what I was getting myself in to. The car is not an every day driver, but when she comes out of the Garage all she wants to do is run. The Handling around corners and curves is great, the "pick up" when you take off is incredible, and the room inside is amazing. It does not look like there is that much room in this car, but you can fit 5 Adults in there, and no problems. I recommend this car to anyone who has the self control to keep it under 100 mph. Have a great ride, WE DO!!!!

very nice styling...great power...just fun to drive...everyone looks at it, because of its great looks...18 mph is the average with 5000 miles driven so far. i have the dark grey so it does blend in to traffic well, and it is a great match, with the grey interior.the navagation system works so well, and is easy to use I use it all the time

I wanted the RT but decided that the fuel economy would be better with the 3.5 V6, and probably fewer speeding tickets too. The SXT has plenty of power, gets decent mpg, great handling, and interior comfort. Definately the nicest car I've ever owned.

You have to put this up against matched contenders like the Marauder,LS sport, Impala SS and the A4 3.0 and when you do it truly shines. Bang for the buck is an understatement. Use all the hemi can give you and the competition will only see your smile in teh rear view and the gorgeous rear end of the Magnum. Dodge has hit this one out of the park!! Dodge lovers drool and the rest will gawk. It is a love it or leave it style but like the pitch with the PT they will either get it or they won't. Given the number of features that come standard it is a hands down winner I am glad I waited for it.

This is the smoothest, fastest, and quietest car I've ever driven. I can forgive the malfunctioning CD Changer, jammed rear seatbelt, and finicky tailgate for a ride like this. I keep thinking of reasons to go run errands. The engine is effortlessly powerful and the tranny is silky smooth. The 5 Speed Autostick is even becoming fun. I never really understood the appeal of a fake manual, but it's fun to downshift to slow the car. You will never need to downshift for acceleration. The car can do it better without you. I'll admit I'm enjoying all the people stopping to admire and ask about the car.

I fell for the Dodge Magnum when I saw the concept version a copuple of years ago. When I found out it was on the market I arranged for a test drive. That sold me. So I bought one. The ride is a little firm but the faster you go up to highway speeds the smoother the ride. On twisty mountain roads it sticks to the road like glue and handles like a dream. The 340 hP Hemi MD is really something. Around town I'm getting on average 17.0 MPG; on the highway about 20 to 24 MPG depending on hills vs. flat land.

Ordered it fully loaded with the exception of the roof rack and I'm having a great time figuring everything out including the hands free telephone. This is a vehicle that will make you feel young again.

The styling of the new Dodge Magnum caught my attention as soon as I got near it, and caused me to want to look and look some more. The long, low stance, the tall wheel/tire combination, the short window 'chopped top' look, made me think this was a custom vehicle. Drove one (the hemi) at the dealership and was sold on it. Nice looking inside, but not 'frilly'. Looks strictly business. Gets more serious when you apply those 340 horses under the hood to the pavement. This thing gets the driver's attention! Surprising headroom too! I'm 6-6, and no problems!

We love our Magnum

I would highly recommend this car to anyone seeking a luxury performance car with all the comforts found in higher priced luxury cars.

This is the most awesome car, sure looks like a station wagon, but has a very classy, but tough look. My husband and I are thrilled to have this car, so yeah maybe we are going through our mid life crisis (ages:42/46), and it does make you feel younger. You have to drive one for yourself, then you'll see what we mean. We bought the inferno red which catches everyones eye, they all stare at it and even stop you and ask all kinds of questions. We love it and plan on keeping it for a very long time. We have been waiting for Dodge to make a car that we would love and they finally did it, so glad we waited.

Nicest vehicle I've driven in a long time. Great if you have children. Safe, reliable, roomie, and fun! Very smooth ride (thanks to the Mercedez engineering). I've got 20" forged rims on mine with Toyo tires...looks very sharp. Also tinted drivers and passengers window to match rest of car. I get stares constantly. It definitely is the talk of all the cars on the road. I decided on the Hemi engine based on the size of the Magnum...it's a big car and would put alot of stress on a V6 engine over the long haul. I see a few people who don't like the interior...saying it looks cheap. I don't agree. It's simple, but has every feature you need.

I have owned my Magnum since early July 2004. I love it. It is exceptionally roomy inside for my family of four. It rides smooth like a heavy sedan on the freeway, but handles quick and responsive like a small sports car around town. The power is phenomenal and a whole lot of fun to drive. And, it definitely turns heads and starts conversations everywhere I go. One negative--I have encountered a "hard-start" problem and the dealership and factory finally solved it after 10+ days in shop, now it continually has a "check-engine" light that they are still unsure of. The problem, although frustrating still has not taken the fun out of this car.

It has plenty of room for the 6ft and up husband and plenty of room for our children.

WHY IS THE TURN SIGNAL STALK NEAR THE BOTTOM OF THE STEERING WHEEL. MY HANDS ARE ALWAYS AT 10 AND 2 - GEE - RIGHT WHERE THE CRUISE CONTROL STALK IS! FRONT BUCKET SEATS CAN HANDLE TWO SMALL ADULTS COMFORTABLY IN EACH SEAT. THE RT SHOULD HAVE REAL SIDE BOLSTERS TO FIT ONE PERSON, NOT TWO. PLS PUT THE CHRYSLER SRT8 UNDER THE MAGNUM BODY - OR AT LEAST OPTION A SUSPENSION TO ENABLE THE RT TO BE MORE LIKE A TRUE SPORTS WAGON AND MATCH ITS LOOKS. NOTHING CLOSE TO THE ADVERTISED GAS MILEAGE, WAY TOO MUCH FUN

However, for now I am very happy with the purchase and like so many others on this site I can't get over how people are breaking their necks to look at this car.After driving the car off the lot there was a problem with a loose upper control arm bolt which the dealer promptly fixed.It also had an alignment problem which the dealership promptly fixed.Now things seem to be working as designed.I am getting about 24 MPG on the Hwy and about 19 in town which for this type of car is good.

Absolutely the best riding car I have owned or even test driven. I like the fact that it uses supsension from Mercedes, and the ride is proof that it works as advertised. I have only 900 miles on mine so far, and have yet to take a trip with it. Biggest problem withthe car is the attention you get while driving it. People ride alongside of you just to look at it and they won't pass, or they take alot of time in passing you. It's one sweet looking ride.

Test drove the RT in May... I was consumed. Read the brochure cover to cover and memorized everything. Factory ordered in June... due to the 300C, Magnum's were backed up. Our dealer traded with a dealer out of Oregon so we could get it in time for our road trip to California! We traded a Ford Windstar for this and the Magnum RT is 10 times more comfortable than it was! My wife is 5'5" & I am 6'2" and we are both are at ease behind the wheel! Merge is no longer a word in our vocabulary!

Girls like torque too!

My previous experience with a V-8 4 door was my husband's Impala SS. We both agree the Magnum is superior across the board. The HEMI rocks, and the suspension handles that power like a dream. I can't believe the acceleration of this car. It's quite comfortable, the stereo is good, and I love the nav system. Styling is outstanding. Every where I go, people stop me and ask me about the car. The few cars that catch me on the highway, slow down to check it out as they go by. Leg room is great in both seats and I still have ample room for cargo in the back. I love blowing the doors off my neighbor's BMW 325I. European performance at American prices.

Disappointed with quality problems

It happened again at 831 miles, there was a strange chirriping sound coming from the transmission, and one of the power door locks (rear left) doesn't unlock. I've taken it back to the dealer, they've claimed the problem's been fixed, but the chirriping sound is still there. At 1,208 miles, I'm hearing three rattles, one from inside my door panel, another from the dashboard, and another from the back near the left tailgate.

Fun, fun, fun

Short of a big block hotrod, nothing is more fun to drive than the Magnum RT. It's fast & corners well. But the main thing is it looks cool going anywhere, even to fill it up with groceries. I have never owned or even seen a car that everyone, from 17 year old guys to 60 year old ladies, love. I bought it for my wife, but I can't stop driving it.

WOW!!!!

This is the coolest car that I have ever owned (29 at last count). This car turns heads everywhere I go and people come up to me where ever I stop to tell me how much they like it.

Love my new Cool Vanilla Magnum SXE..Truely a head turner. The only thing I find is it is sensitive to the road crown and always veers in either direction.Had it inspected and aligned but they say its the Florida roads. Until they figure out how to fix it, one must put up with it.

I may never have to buy another car!

I have owned my 05 magnum sxt for over 3 months now, it turns heads everywhere. everyday i drive it to work at 90-100+ miles per hour (early morning traffic). it performs awesome. i went with the sxt because i couldnt see paying the money on gas with the RT(V8). i traded in a 99 ford tourus sho that had a v8 in it, and i must have forgot how much father you can go on a full tank of gas with a v6! the tourus i had was fwd and the engine weighed so much, you could bearly squeal the tires. i love the rwd on my magnum, if i turn the ESP off i can have as much fun as i want to, you can squeal the tires easily! i plan on owning this car until the day i die.

I just got my Magnum and I love it. I was very surprised to see how easy it handled, despite it's large size. I was very impressed with the safety features that come standard and the extras. I feel very safe driving with my two children in the car.

This is one SWEET machine. From the chopped & channeled look, to the large interior capacity, Dual Zone A/C, and heated seats. Tons of rear leg room, and wide 60/40 split seat. Yes people do stop and stare, and beep at you at stop lights and ask questions. Somebody though it was an Audi. But what sets it apart is the POWER. Step on the gas and Go!!!!

Ive had this car about a month now and I find driving to be a real pleasure again. This car is fun and easy to drive, with plenty of power when needed and also great gas mileage for it being a muscle car. There is plenty of storage in the rear and there is plenty of leg and head room. Im 6ft. 4inches and I have no problem whatsoever with head and leg room. I think this car is the ultimate in practicality combined with a beautiful design. I get the thumbs up sign wherever I go. I highly recommend this vehicle for the shear pleasure of driving!!!

i never thought I would love a Dodge!!!!

I have always driven a Gm vehicle till now!!! I became so disappointed and needed a car that was roomy , exciting dependable and efficient... I got it so far!!! We have spent more time showing this car to curious on lookers... 3 hours one time outside a store...all i needed was laundry soap... but we had to take the time to show the car of our dreams.. it was worth it!!!

the dodge magnum rt is a really awesome car and would buy a second one for my fiance if i could trust her with all the power this car has to offer. my only complaint is the gas mileage but thats probably because of eating all these other sport cars for breakfast. if you purchase one you will love it to death not to mention all the attention you gat from such a great and intresting car.

Awesome

I love driving this car more everyday! I needed something with lots of room to carry my gear, but still something sporty. One friend of mine says "This car reeks of German ingenuity" I feel like I'm driving a Mercedes at a Dodge price.

SWEET

I HAVE NEVER OWNED ANYTHING BUT A FORD. 3 EXPLORERS,AND 3 MUSTANGS LATER , I'M NOW A HUGE MAGNUM FAN. THIS AUTO HAS SURPASSED ANYTHING I MAY HAVE THOUGHT. COMFORT,SPEED,ROOMY,AND COOL LOOKING. I HAVE LETERALLY SPENT MORE TIME SHOWNING THE CAR TO PEOPL THAN I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DRIVE IT. A BMW SUV ALMOST DROVE ME OFF THE ROAD TRYING TO GET A GLIMPSE,AND THEN YELLED OUT GREAT CAR. THIS CAR HAS IT ALL. WHAT A GREAT CONCEPT. GOOD JOB DODGE.

Best Damn Car, Period!

Without a question, this new vehicle is stout! Handles like a dream and corners without stressing. My family loves the room and utility. Dodge scores BIG with this one!
