Pros: The Hemi
Advice: Drive one or two.....Just bought a 2005 Magnum RT-AWD. I'm in love with everything about this car! The handeling is tighter than anything I've driven, the throttle at full is smooth as silk with plenty of power to spare. Was really impressed by the interior layout and comforts Dodge put into the car. This doesn't feel like a large car at all and you can feel the german engineering under you as you carve the twistys and torque up the mountain grades. I threw a set of medium flowmasters on and the throaty sound alone demands respect. Seemed most dealers were selling with loaded packages as an inventory standard. I drove the rear wheel drive, however the AWD seemed to be a more solid handler having all four tires biting down on the road at all times. The saftey features were a big seller for me with side curtain airbags and the ESP for the slippery seasons. I would recommend this car to anyone who appreciates the days of the solid old fashioned American Automobiles!
Pros: The look and the Hemi.
Cons: Should have been a light in the center console and something to hold the gas cap in place.
Advice: Buy it with the Hemi!!!I absolutely love everything about this car. People stop me all the time to ask about it and tell me how great it looks. You have to get the Hemi cause the power is unbelievable. The pickup is so incredible.

Advice: get the hemi RT modelThe car is great. My family/friends love to sit in the rear seat since there is so much leg room.
Pros: overall appreance and the blacked out windows makes it look sweet
Cons: No rear power door closer. Door opens high making it hard to pull down
Advice: Test drive on open road. Check steering to be sure it goes in a straight lineRuns great. Purchased in may of 04. Had dozens of people stop and ask me what kind of car it was. Downside Car drifts to the right at any speed Dodge has no fix for the problem can get you into trouble if you remove one hand from the wheel
Pros: 3.5L V6 High Out-put engine
Cons: cruise control location
Advice: Test the performance in on the open roadI recently purchased a Magnum SXT and it is one of the best performance cars in its class. The SXT has style, performance and head turning apppearance. On the open road the SXT reminds me of a thorobred racing to the finish line. I would recommend the car to anyone.

Advice: Check out the Chrysler online programs..Do not pay full pop! find a dealer who works with you.Special ordered my RT as dealers only had them loaded, I just wanted Red, sunroof, electronic convienience group as options. Three month wait! Darn worth it! Hint..I bought it on the Chrysler college grad program 1% under invoice! plus $1,000 rebate thru Chrysler financial Excellent deal! 3 miles on the odo at delivery. Fast, responsive car, absolute head turner, I like the cruise control on stem and it's versatility. Standard Boston sound system is fantastic! with two options added this a loaded vehicle. I don't need heated seats or adjustable pedals..nor the navigation system. showing 370 miles now.. effortless to over 100 mph at a blink of the eye.. about 3200rpm..How fast will this thing go?(leave that to someone else..) (felt like 60 mph,)super stable. Fanfreakintastic! Electronic convenience group is a must, lots of practical features, steering wheel controls, avg fuel mileage, station monitor,compass,thermometer, built in garage door opener and more. Beautiful light leather interior electric adjustable driver seat with adj lumbar support. Neighbors with their clone style Lexus, Accuras & MB's are envious. Sunroof is fine, had to have that. I love this vehicle. Shopped 3 dealers to find one who would do the Grad program price. Now, how can I cut off those stock mufflers and pop on a couple of glasspacks... Nuff said.
