Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: AWD, ROOM, and VROOM
Advice: Owned alot of cars this one I will keep around..I made alot of fun about this car when I first seen them. I drove one for fun, and that was that.. I ate my own words, when I thought I would never own a wagon.. I grew up with racing and always seeing the wagons pulling great times and were always being known for the sleeper.. Dodge has brought that back with the HEMI RT and its great. If you have not driven one, do it even if it's for fun..
Pros: Responsiveness and Handling
Cons: Not sure I found anything yet.
Advice: Avoid the SE - SXT or RT... AWD's are somewhat rare...I have had this car? Truck? crossover? No Sports Car for 7,500 miles now and all is trouble free. The car drives nicely and feels very safe. Oh, By the way - yes it's the 5.7 version AWD and my I say it can get up a go with anything - when needed or cruise effortlessly at 65 @ 2,200 RPM's without knowing the engine is running. Very Nice Chyr. feels German sometimes... It's a wagon maybe by its' looks - buy really a sports car trapped! - I have had many cars in the last five years (4) and this is by far the most ballanced fun vs. transporation I've had.
Pros: The overall performance and comfort (oh and the stereo)
Cons: Rear wheel drive (I live in New England) but with the traction control i have had no problems
Advice: Test drive it...no REALLY test drive it. It's a great car! It's the best vehicle i have ever purchasedWas on my way to buy an Impala and then i drove a 2006 Magnum. I can't say enough about this vehicle. I have back trouble and the lumbar support in the seats makes this THE most comfortable car i have ever owned. Beats the socks of my old Explorer! Quick off the line, great looking and comfortable. As far as i can tell, the gas mileage has been very good. This is by far the best car i have ever purchased! My friends have said this car is 'so me' and quite frankly, yes it is! I bought the big V6 model, didn't like the thought of a V8 and gas prices, but the V6 is FAST! I also like the fact that i still have room to carry things in the back and the seats split for more carrying area if needed.
Pros: Looks and the HEMI
Cons: Laws against driving it like it like it could be driven
Advice: Get an RT you'll love it .Brush your teeth. You'll never get the smile off your face.Best handling (car) (station wagon) I have ever driven. I have Michelin 275/40 R on Ferretti 20' Rims. Really hangs in there with plenty of HEMI power. I just bought a 2005 loaded DEMO with 4,000 miles on it 2 months ago. The first time I saw one I wanted one but had to wait a while for a good deal. I think I got one $23,000 plus tax. Color (Inferno Red Crystal Pearl Coat) with two Silver racing strips. Or you could call it 'Arrest Me Red'
Pros: 425 HP!
Cons: No memory seats
Advice: if you can afford it and dont care about MPG, buy this carThis is the most fun you can have in a station wagon, under 95,000 $ !!!!! I love this car more than any other i've ever drivin.
Pros: The looks.
Cons: I have to quit driving sometime.
Advice: Go for it. Great carI own a 2005 Magnum RT AWD and love it. It rides, drives like no other car I have had. I compare it to the Cad's and Linc. I have owned. Great choice and would buy another in a heart beat. Tinted windows, lowered, DUD wheels. Alot of people stop me to talk about it.
Pros: My favorite feature is the overall appearance and sleek body lines.
Cons: The position of the cruise control, and lack of controls on the steering wheel.
Advice: Be careful, because if you drive it, you've bought it!!I loved the way the car handled... the smooth feeling it gives when cruising. Love the acceleration and feeling of power. It's a comfortable, sporty, and functional car all in one.
