Get One If You Can Find One — Love this car - holds a ton, safe & comfy, eats rice with ease. Surprisingly reliable for a Dodge. Has nice, solid feel. I always get picked to drive the "gang"; back seat room is excellent. Interior is bland but functional. Gas mileage is all dependent on how heavy your foot is.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Does everything - holds a boatload, fast when you need it, excellent highway cruiser, safe.

Cons: The "Dodge" stigma.  It really hasn't been bad!

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Looks.  340 horsepower.  Handling.  Comfort.  Reliability.  Cargo capacity.

Cons: Gas mileage.

Maggie Mae — Killer ride, but I have to say it has had some major transmission and oil usage issues. I wouldn't recommend it to my mother in law, and that's saying something indeed. Drive one if you can, but never buy. recipe contests

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

Pros: Handling

Cons: Maintainence

Sporty Fun Suv — Excellant high speed performance, great acceleration, fine handling, sporty appearance and a quality vehicle. Love the back that turns into extra storage, and back seats fold down for more room. Sporty candy apple red color. Love the chopped and channeled apprearance. Fun to drive.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Acceleration and handling.

Cons: Gas mileage in the city.

Love It, Love It... My Husband And I Fight Over Who's Driving All The Time. — Love our Magnum, will be buying an SRT8 Magnum next. This car is a head-turner and I love the speed, and control. The AutoStick is nice and convenient =) Drag racing from the stop light is always fun because they think you'll lose since it's a wagon. WRONG!!! Lots of space, comfortable on long trips, 30mpg on long trips as well. Love it, will buy another. Have changed nothing but the tires & oil. Soon to install the Predator tuner for even more power & fun.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: power,room,handling,fun,speed,appearance

Cons: none

Great Grocery Getter That Gets You The Girls. — The dodge magnum I find is too electronic for my liking. The throttle by wire setup is too unresponsive, so the feeling of muscle under your feet is replaced with this computerized deadness. But other than that, performance is pretty sharp. Nice shifts, handles like an over weight go cart, and has that powerful bellow that sends chills down your spine, for a V6! The ride is pretty smooth, on account of its independent suspension. Mileage is nice, considering the size of the motor. Overall it's an okay car.

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

Pros: Cool pimp daddy styling makes you feel like a king.

Cons: Too tame throttle response.

Fast Acceleration, Looks Cool, Saves Gas, And Has Lots Of Room. — The performance is awesome. Estimated 1/4 mile time with performance add- ons is 13.9 sec. Now weighs 4060 lbs after an exhaust swap, estimated 357 hp and 410 tq. Despiite the power, it has functional room capacity, fit for traveling. It would be better to be a manual. No problems with the car except every so often I get a cylinder stall where it's not running on all eight cylinders. Appearance is awesome, the interior could be way better. Gas mileage is brilliant with the size of the engine and car. It is extremely fun to drive despite being an automatic.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Raw Power and looks cool!

Cons: Only comes in Automatic :(
