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

Pros: 5.7 HEMI, Looks Like A Hearse, Not Many On The Road, Versatile

Cons: Looks Like A Hearse, Thirsty V8

Only Car That Seems To Fit A Kid, A Booster Seat And A Baby Seat In One Row. — Versatile with good looks and excellent performance, I'm loving not having to worry about the front-end issues that plagued our FWD cars (talkin' about you, Volvo).

Pros: Great handling, get complimented on the looks all the time (blue collar types give it a lot of cred for some reason), Mercedes components and really just so far a great vehicle for the money.

Cons: Wagon back is smaller due to sloped roof and side walls impinging, after a year and a half the driver's door clacks when openen and closing (Volvo did the same but bolt replacement easy to fix, not as easy with the Dodge), HUGE tires cost plenty to replace, huge plastic light covers lose their luster in no time, interior a little cheasy, seats are a little on the firm side.

Very Amazing! — Sure the suspension is stiffer than the R/T model, but that only means that the SRT8 can offer you more enjoyment. The interior design looks great, and the stitched "SRT8" badge in the front seats only adds to the greatness. Exterior styling looks good although more could have been done to make this vehicle look more mean and powerful, after all it is an SRT8. Handling is great for a vehicle this size. Braking is really awesome since Brembo brakes are being employed on not just this, but the charger and 300c SRT8 models. And the star of the show, the 6.1L 425HP hemi is just pure greatness.

Pros: -able to carry whatever you need it to
-great for families and road trips
-has the speed, handling, and braking to get you to your destination

Cons: -styling could have more detail given to it
-could be better with gas

Nice — handling is not bad for such a big car, i should have opted for a bigger engine considering the weight ... overall it's a nice ride for hauling the kids and gear.

Pros: spacious, attention getter

Cons: a little iffy in the canadian snow even with the best tires, chomps the gas if you push too hard
