Dare To Be Different — The look grabbed me right away. Of course having bought one early in life really brings back a lot. Big block 2 door doesn't hurt either. I've grown tired of small and big block chevys, not that they aren't great but its funny how we end up back at our roots. Never got to drive the first one so this one starts where I left off years ago

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

Pros: Big, great looking, different. Don't see many.

Cons: Rust, unibody, lean burn. All easily remedied.

1978 Dodge Magnum XE Review
I got this one in the early 80s, so she was not very old at the time. Sweet ride based upon the Chrysler Cordoba. Cool concealed headlights. Nice leather upholstery. 360CID engine, 2BBL. I ran into a blood-sucking female who caused me to neglect the car, eventually resulting in me losing the car. I still miss that car -- and regret ever having anything to do with the woman.

Great Wagon By Eduard

I wanted one of these since they were released. It's the red badge RT so it has the suede insert leather seats with red stitching that are very comfortable on long drives. 20" factory rims. 20 gig mu... Read More

If You Like Wagons, This Is As Good As It Gets! By MIke the

I like station wagons and this 2007 Dodge Magnum is the best one I've ever owned. Superior handling, decent power and a sharp-looking car. A 250 HP high-performance V6 gives this car spirited performa... Read More

Great Car By 455poncho

Great car, would buy again, styling and ride are tops, brakes and comfort are top as well. The turning radius is poor, mileage for a V6 could be better but it does have good acceleration for a large c... Read More

Good Classic By JJKessel
