Pros

My 2nd Magnum, love the comfort, especially the looks. Gas mileage is great for a large car better than my crossover suv. Acceleration is great. Magnum is the best car I have ever had.

Cons

Having to replace 2 fuel pumps under the back seat, having the split gas tank, the cost of a battery and the special antifreeze. Its hard for a short person to see through the drivers review mirror. had that problem on my 07 also. you have to really press hard on the brakes.

Sexy — This is my 2nd Magnum, Loved the first one, doesn't disappoint even tho its a SXT .It gives me what I ask for when I want it. Looking forward to a black R/T. The sexiest car ever made. Wish they would bring it back.

The Best Car I Have Ever Owned And Am Searching For Another Rt Or Srt8 — There is nothing I do not like about this car. I bought it with 55k and am now looking for another. Would like an srt8 but price is holding me back to an rt. The performance is awesome and I feel the safest of any car I have ever owned.

Love And Hate Of My Dodge Magnum — This car and i have a love hate thing going on. Its quirky to say the least. It eats brakes like you wouldnt believe it has some electrical issues and 2 weeks ago the imrc went out leaving me stranded on the side of the highway with my 3 year old. The brakes squeal constantly no matter what i replace them with. They also drag at times cutting my fuel mileage. Chrysler couldnt figure out why. At 60 mph it shakes ive had new tie rods and front suspension redone alignment and new tires with no improvement. Im looking for a different car i dont trust it anymore. That being said i still love how this car looks. I just wish it wasnt tempermental all the time. *** I have since bought myself an excursion with the 7.3 in it. And passed this hunk of junk onto my husband. A couple weeks ago he went to pull out of the driveway with the magnum and the lower control arm on the drivers side broke completely wedging the wheel up into the fender. I'd love nothing more than to kick the ass of the man who designed the suspension on these cars.

Dodge Magnum Srt8 — I love this vehicle due to its style, power, handling, and comfort. Chrysler should have never stopped making these vehicles. This vehicle is everything you want in one package. Always getting looks, and a pleasure to drive. Just wish the fuel economy was a limitless better.

Love It — The Magnum is a great car. I love driving it around town and it gets a lot of looks. It's a relatively affordable car. It's a blast to drive..even though I won't let many people drive it for that reason.

Fun Car — This is a fantastic car. Fun, safe, comfortable, unique and eye catching. I liked it so much I bought another. My second Dodge Magnum is a Hemi, AWD. I wanted a muscle car and am willing to live with lower MPG for the extra HP

Gobs of power. Dripping with ammenities.

Cons

A bit thirsty. Stock suspension was a tad soft.

Road Tank. — Muscle car for the modern age. Brute good looks with Hemi power to back it up. Lots of support in the aftermarket for those who like to mod. Sturdy platform. Solid feel. A great long distance cruiser, great at the stop lights as well. Not your moms station wagon!

2006 Dodge Magnum — I looked for a gray Magnum for about 3 months. This one showed up on cars.com in 2008, listed as having 140 miles (!???). I called the dealer, he said it must be a type bbut the car was pretty clean. I went to look at it, and it did indeed have 140 miles on it! Still had the tags on the seats and the build stickers under the hood. It had been a dealer's demo just before he lost his dealership. So I got a new car at a used car price, with full warranty. Performance: The Hemi has a great sound and pulls hard in all 4 gears. Antilock brakes are harsh and take getting used too. In spite of the size, this car handles better than my Mustang. Build Quality: Not the greatest, but the dealer has been great taking care of some minor squeaks, getting the sunroof to stock creaking. Appearance: This is a love it or hate it car. People think it's a huge long wagon but it's an optical illusion. It's just 8 inches longer than my wife's Maxima, and I can U-turn easily in local streets. Cost: So far, it's been cheap to run. It gets 24 mpg on the highway, sometimes more on long trips. The variable displacement engine really works if you keep a light foot on the pedal. That's hard to do, it's a lot more fun to blow people off the road. Fun to Drive:? Hell yeah.

Pros

Great handling, get complimented on the looks all the time (blue collar types give it a lot of cred for some reason), Mercedes components and really just so far a great vehicle for the money.

Cons

Wagon back is smaller due to sloped roof and side walls impinging, after a year and a half the driver's door clacks when openen and closing (Volvo did the same but bolt replacement easy to fix, not as easy with the Dodge), HUGE tires cost plenty to replace, huge plastic light covers lose their luster in no time, interior a little cheasy, seats are a little on the firm side.

Only Car That Seems To Fit A Kid, A Booster Seat And A Baby Seat In One Row. — Versatile with good looks and excellent performance, I'm loving not having to worry about the front-end issues that plagued our FWD cars (talkin' about you, Volvo).
