Pros

Lots of room in car and hatch. It looks good when it's all fixed up. Felt safe in this car. Parts are prices fair.

Cons

Nothing to really dislike.

I Liked The Look Of It. — The car is very roomy for families and trips. It's comfortable and you can fit a lot in the hatch. It's bigger so I feel safer driving it and it handles pretty good for a longer car. Even though the back windows are tinted it is still easy to see out of them

I loved the look and performance of this car.

Because of the Hemi engine, filling the tank was a pain in the pocket!

Black Beauty!! — I love EVERYTHING about this car. It accelerated when you need it to and it stopped when you need it to! I am only giving it up because I lost my job and can't afford to keep it right now!!

Great Bang For The Buck. For You Speed Freaks, The Car Does 156 Top Speed. According To Gps Tracking — This car is a built to thrill machine. The engine is a 3.5L HO 250 hp stock engine. Aftet a stage two fuel injection kit and a fuel chip, you end up with 263 hp. The car handles well, in fact, too well. My Brother in law got a ticket for goin 90 in a 65 because he didn't realize how fast he was going. The car can out perform most 4 and 6 cyl on the road, although the magnum struggles with matching v-8's. It's a very "loud" car and most people will either hate it or love it. There is no in between with this baby. If I did it all over again? RT- Hemi would be the only thing I did different.

This car is fast, it's fun to drive! Great gas mileage. Comfortable to drive. Very well built low maintenance costs.

Cons

The original tires did not last long, but Michelin tires solved that problem.

Great Car,.fun To Own. Never Regreted Buying It. — This car impressed me from the first day I took it home, and I always liked it. When you consider how much power it has it is hard to believe that it also gets over twenty miles per gallon of gas on the highway.

The Best Family Car! — We purchased this car when we found out we were having a second baby. The Magnum was perfect for us because we could haul our kids, a double stroller, plus groceries with no problems! We went with the RT because of the Hemi =) If we had to have a family car, it was going to be a powerful one. The gas mileage wasn't as good as most cars, but it's a Hemi V8! It does have variable valve timing, so when we were on the highway, setting the cruise control really lowered the gas consumption. It's also great for long trips. It easily carried all 4 of us, luggage, large birthday presents, and a 70lb Boxer.

The "i Can Make It" Car. — Car is great. Acceleration is great, brakes aren't bad...My only problem really is the gas mileage. Have a V6 and I try to not push on the gas so much because it will drink the gas like water. But it gets me from point A to point B without problems thus far.

Elegant, Sporty, Awesome! — Car is extremely powerful and the handling and brakes are amazing, the 9 to 60 time shows just how powerful and fun this car can be. But this car is also a great family car with a very elegant look with a lot of space for luggage and very spacious and confortable leather seats for long trips

Hemi Magnum — I don't dislike too much except for the features this model doesn't have or simply doesn't carry. I enjoy the power and possibilities the car has to offer for upgrades. I would recommend the car to friends and strangers. If they made a 2014 version, I'd buy it!!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Large, Comfy, And Sticks Like Glue — good fit and finish, excellent interior, beautiful suspension. hangs on to corners extremly well. brakes are more than enough to send contents of the car and unbuckled occupants to the front of the car. we'll see how the engine holds up. feels like a mercedes benz trans. tiny 2.7 liter engine is peppy for it's size, not for the size of the car though. plenty sufficient to move the car, with resonable mileage.

Hearse-like Wagon — Distinctive looks, particularly in black; looks like a hearse (in a good way). Plenty of pickup even in SE trim. Solid construction. Great legroom front and rear. Plenty of storage/hauling space behind the rear seats. Black interior looks sharp. Great driver's adjustable lumbar support. Chopped retro look. Too bad they are discontinuing the Magnum wagon.
