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.

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.

Hot-rod Wagon — Of all the cars I have owned, this would be my favorite. It's cool looking, runs like a bat out of hell, and sounds great too. It has everything a person could need in a car. It is in like-new condition even after 7 years.

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

Pros

Rides great!  Lot's of leg room for the tall guys!  Super sleek look. The car gets up and goes for a high output V6 with 22" rims.

Cons

It's a bit low so you have to watch what your driving over..speed bumps, rail road tracks, etc.

Fun To Drive...sharp — I love driving it on trips to northern California. Very smooth ride and the sound system is excellent. It looks great! I'm always getting compliments on how clean the paint job is. The car feels safe and is. Minor blind spots. The tinted windows take some getting used to, but, they keep the car cooler in the hotter weather!!

Overall Love It - 90k And Still Rolling — Great curb appeal, good ride, nice acoustics for larger sound system. Performance of 2.7 DOHC is adequate; top end is surprising. Interior rattles on rough roads. Had headlight service (polishing) done twice - original light lenses micro-crack and yellow. Added 18" 2009 Charger mags and 245/55 18 tires and it REALLY improved ride and cornering. Bolted up no issue. Gets 26 MPG on road; more fun to drive with larger wheels.

Great mix of family size and performance with the gas mileage of a 4 cylindar car, and cheap!

Cons

Without AWD, this car is great in the rain and horrible in the snow.

Overlooked Vehicle, But No Longer In Production. — Performance: The SE has the lower end engine so there is not a lot of pull, but it can keep up. It's a heavy beast, so turning is not it's favorite place to be, however it turns better than expected. Build Quality: This is an "American car" so I've already seen the types of build issues I'd expect. E-Brake handle fell off, one door stopped opening. Otherwise it's been great, however I've only put 30,000 miles on it. Appearance: Like any car, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I happen to love the look, its one of the best looking station wagons I've ever seen. The interior is big and simple, and I prefer it to it's cousin, the 300c. Cost of Ownership: For what you're getting, this car is incredibly cheap. I purchased mine for 20k, for the size, the 18gal gas tank, the performance (6cyl engine), it's a good price. I still can't factor in repair costs because I've yet to have a problem since my warranty expired, but being an American car, I expect it. Fun Factor: This is not a vehicle you whip around in, it's for cruising. But it has lots of style, it's just a wagon version of the 300c, which most wouldn't consider a vehicle that lacks style. Also, ROOMY, I've not had anything I couldn't fit in this vehicle yet (within reason). I don't want a minivan or a giant SUV, so to be able to have 4 kids in the car and fill the car up with junk from Costco and the grocery store is great.
