The Beast — This car is amazing. I got mine used with 45,000 miles and have only needed to change the tires. It came with the 5.7L HEMI, a Borla exhaust, K&N intake, and a superchip, and this thing goes like a bat out of hell. I got some grief for buying it, until I showed my friends its tire smoking performance, which made a couple of my friends want to buy one. I would definitely recommend this for anybody looking to have some fun, while also having the room to haul stuff.

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.

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.

Fun American Muscle Car Disguised As A Wagon! — I bought this car 7 years ago used, and after my test drive I knew I was going to buy it. The car has instant foot response and crazy acceleration. The steering is tight and responsive and the brakes feel soft and grippy. I have since improved the brakes and front suspension for a much improved ride. This car is so much fun to drive, that I find myself taking the long way to my destination, but usually get there at the same time.

Pros

Fun to drive, Hemi power! Multi-displacement great for highway fuel economy. Roomy, and comfortable ride.

Cons

Can be a hog on gas if driven hard, plus prefers high octane. Takes up a lot of garage space.

Fun And Powerful, With A Ton Of Room To Spare. — The Dodge Magnum RT is the best road trip car I have ever owned! Best looking wagon on the road with its aggressive lines and Hemi V8 rumble that sounds great when you put your foot into to it. Overall high marks!

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.

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.

Awesome Car — I liked everything about it. Absolutely fun to drive.. Very Cool Stance, Great Long Trip Vehicle .. Really liked this Magnum . The Space and Comfort are not expected, but add to that surprise the Power and Fun.. and you have a Complete Package.. Sorry they stopped building these True Sport Wagons.

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
