    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 :(

    Good All Around Car Good Quality It Fits My Lifestyle — I like everything about this car it never let me down. It can handle almost anything you throw at it. Cost of ownership goes up the v8 take 7 qts of oil. Its a blast in a open parking lot with snow. If you take good care it, it will take care of you.

    Pros: V8 all wheel drive

    Cons: Some problems here and their but overall nothing to big.

    We Like It So Much We Are Going To Buy Another One Someday! — I Love EVERYTHING about this car! It is a definite head-turner. It has plenty of room inside, plenty of power under the hood, and it's fun to mod! I only wish Dodge had not decided to stop producing them. Well I guess discontinuing them makes them that much more special.

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

    Pros: Fast, Beautiful, Spacious

    Cons: Nothing 'sucks' about this car.

    2005 Dodge Magnum — As for overall performance the car is great. Great acceleration, great exhaust note, keeps climbing past 100 with no problems!! The styling is personal opinion, but I think that it is very muscular and very functional!! How many cars can you haul 2 x 10 boards with all doors closed!! All in all...how can you beat a Mercedes Benz parts bin car with HEMI muscle???

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Some people still don't know what it is......

    Cons: Short trips between gas statioins!!

    Good Value And A Nice Ride. — over 130,000 miles in 4 years ... still running strong and well. Now having some issues with steering rack - needed replacing as well as shocks and struts. Nice design and SXT model gets 22 miles / gallon. Interior is basic - leather OK. Could be nicer. I like the gauges ... accurate.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Comfortable and runs and rides very well.

    Cons: Original tires - replaced twice with Goodyear Triple Treads which are great!

    Great Bang For The Buck. For You Speed Freaks, The Car Does 156 Top Speed. According To Gps Tracking — This car is a built to thrill machine. The engine is a 3.5L HO 250 hp stock engine. Aftet a stage two fuel injection kit and a fuel chip, you end up with 263 hp. The car handles well, in fact, too well. My Brother in law got a ticket for goin 90 in a 65 because he didn't realize how fast he was going. The car can out perform most 4 and 6 cyl on the road, although the magnum struggles with matching v-8's. It's a very "loud" car and most people will either hate it or love it. There is no in between with this baby. If I did it all over again? RT- Hemi would be the only thing I did different.

    Pros: Solid

    Cons: Can be ugly to some
