    2005 Dodge Magnum Review
    says:
    This has amazing power but the transmission was utterly garbage and I could have bought a new mopar 700 horse power rated transmission with a 100,000 mile warranty for the cost the dealership charged me to repair the old one. So when they quote you ~$4,000 to fix it just say no and get them to put a new one in for the same relative cost. The 300 watt stereo is the bomb and the engine runs great. Keep an eye on the battery because when it goes you cant get into the back hatch.
    Power Ranked 2016 Toyota Camry worse.
    "340 hp hemi"
    Front Seats Ranked 2016 Toyota Camry better.
    "Both are full powered."

    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

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    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.

    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: 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.

    Awesome Car — I love this car, I sold my Magnum RT to get a Magnum SRT8! Car has nice power, great features, tons of space. Only issue was front end. Tie Rods and tension struts were the weak link. I was averaging about 18-19 miles per gallon. If you are looking for fuel efficiency this is not it. But still a WONDERFUL CAR!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Tons of space, lots of power, reliable!

    Cons: Gas guzzler, front end issues (tie rods, tension struts).

    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Plenty of space. Smooth ride.

    Cons: Gas mileage is not that great and visibility out the side...blind spots are larger than other vehicles.

    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.

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

    Pros: Great Car.. Tough Look!!! Holds Value Very Well !!

    Cons: Hard to Find !!

    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

    Pros: Great looks, nice sound, extremely powerful and safe!

    Cons: I dont belueve there is something about ghis car that I dont like

    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: comfortable ride, a lot of power, sleek look.

    Cons: interior fit and finish not the best, rear view visibility not the best.

    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.)

    Pros: Hemi, cargo room, heated seats

    Cons: non-ventilated seats, no heated/ventilated cup holders, no sun/moon roof
