Love It — The Magnum is a great car. I love driving it around town and it gets a lot of looks. It's a relatively affordable car. It's a blast to drive..even though I won't let many people drive it for that reason.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fast, muscle car, HEMI, lots of room in the car.

Cons: Gas mileage.

Love The Look, Love The Feel - Love What I Get Out Of It! — This car is very fun to drive. I do admit to being unused to the RWD part, but that didn't take me too long. I got this car in 2007 when it had 11K miles on it for under $20K. As good as it is quick, it seems to still be very responsive at faster speeds. If I have any dislike, it would be the traction control and ABS, which I have grown up driving without, and know what to do in bad situations.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Performance, Spatiousness, and all-around utility possibilities

Cons: Not used to RWD or handling a larger car.

Don't Buy It. — Performance: Slower than slow. Build Quality: have had mechanical issues already and only 80,000 miles. Appearance: I think it looks sweet nut it is massive. If you don't have the RT or SRT trim definately find a set of those wheels to throw on your SE or SXT looks a lot nicer. Cost of ownership: have had it about a year and dumped over a 1000.00 in repairs :-(

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: If you need a lot of space and you enjoy the big American car styling.

Cons: Slow, Has needed a few repairs under 80,000 miles, Sounds like it may need more in the future (makes weird noises randomly), No resale value.

Love My Car. Ya It's Got A Hemi! — Acceleration is awesome. Quick, precise braking and handling. Does not need repairs. Add an air filter by Mopar and waiting to get the exhaust redone for a more throaty sound. Exterior is pimping. Black pearl paint finish with leather interior. Pimped out with Hemi decals and custom interior decor. Gas milage isn't bad for this beast. I love to drive this car. Summer is best. Nothing like detailing it on a warm sunny day, popping the sun roof, turning up the toons and letting it roar. Hemi's rock!

Pros: Speed and Beauty, what more could you want.

Cons: None

2006 Dodge Magnum —

I looked for a gray Magnum for about 3 months. This one showed up on cars.com in 2008, listed as having 140 miles (!???). I called the dealer, he said it must be a type bbut the car was pretty clean. I went to look at it, and it did indeed have 140 miles on it! Still had the tags on the seats and the build stickers under the hood. It had been a dealer's demo just before he lost his dealership. So I got a new car at a used car price, with full warranty. Performance: The Hemi has a great sound and pulls hard in all 4 gears. Antilock brakes are harsh and take getting used too. In spite of the size, this car handles better than my Mustang. Build Quality: Not the greatest, but the dealer has been great taking care of some minor squeaks, getting the sunroof to stock creaking. Appearance: This is a love it or hate it car. People think it's a huge long wagon but it's an optical illusion. It's just 8 inches longer than my wife's Maxima, and I can U-turn easily in local streets. Cost: So far, it's been cheap to run. It gets 24 mpg on the highway, sometimes more on long trips. The variable displacement engine really works if you keep a light foot on the pedal. That's hard to do, it's a lot more fun to blow people off the road. Fun to Drive:? Hell yeah.

Pros: Performance, room, comfort

Cons: Rear visibility

A Car That Has The Looks But Fails To Live Up To Them. —

Driving a regular Dodge Magnum is a disappointing experience. It actually looks quite good giving the image that its a powerful beastly car with some presence. Trouble is...unless you get the one with the Hemi V8...its rubbish. To drive a SE version you're basically driving one of the slowest cars ever made in the 21st century. Despite having the 2.7L V6 it just can't hit 0-100 km/h without taking about 12 seconds because the car is so heavy. The weight also has more consequences, the car is terrible at handling despite being RWD. For something that isn't as cheap as a econobox or even a mid sized car, this is embarrassing. Why Chrysler even allowed a V6 option for a car that is too heavy to make good use of them is confusing. The Magnum is the slowest car I've ever driven. The interior is just as disappointing as any modern Chrysler. Ergonomically its still the industry's worst, for someone as short as I am, the turn stalk is so low my knee blocks it from performing left turn signals. Like any current Chrysler the plastics are very cheap and disgusting to look at. The good news is the amount of space it provides. The amount of money you save from paying for a V8 Magnum you'll waste in straining every ounce of power the weak V6 tries to make push a vehicle too heavy for it. The car has also been canceled, its unlikely resale value is good at all. Its actually a better idea to get a 300 instead, that car is much of the same as this car but slightly better touches and much less weight. If you were wondering how this car drives, it might be better if you just didn't.

Pros: Looks menacing, large interior

Cons: Very slow, poor handling, very cheap interior, very heavy, poor value
