Owned for 3 months so far
Pros: Hard to pick - but i like the Exterior/interior styling
Cons: gas mileage is overrated- i drive it like a baby and average 14.8mpg in the city. I haven't done any extensive driving on the highway. But I did take a 150 mile road trip and averaged about 19mpg on the highway. Navigation system is too expensiveI have owned this car for about 3 months and I realy like it so far. The handling and power is great. Comfort, roomy for myself and passengers. Also it can handle a good sized load in the back- even more when you fold the rear seats down. I got the soundgroup package and I like the Sirius/XM radio alot with the 8.4' touch screen. I opted out of the navigation system though because of the expense (crazy right?) I may add it in later when the price drops a bit. It was like an extra thousand dollars when i can go buy a Garmon or Tomtom for $150.
Pros: trunk is very heavy, also inside features
Cons: cup holder in the back seat.excellent inside with lots of incentives. ride can be rough at times. over all excellent vehicle
goodI was satisfied
I couldn't be more pleased
Pros: Gas mileage and manual shift
Cons: If I had my drothers, I would have wanted an extra socket for an electrical device...my GPS takes the one that I do have and there are other things like my phone charger which I'd like to have in there. There is, of course the plug.My wife and I purchased our 2007 Dodge Caliber to replace an aging Ford Focus that had served us well and which we wanted to give to a friend who's rear axle on his car had just snapped and he relies on a car for his work. This care is a Standard Shift which is what we were looking for and since I am generally...ok, sometimes...a conservative driver will easily get in excess of 45 miles/gallon on the interstate and in the upper 30's around town. For me, this is exactly what I wanted economy in terms of gas expenditure. The car is gorgeous in appearance, roomy, has more than enough power when needed, is comfortable to ride in for long rides. It is a delight to drive...and the storage space in the rear is more than spacious enough to hold all of my sporting gear...despite the fact that I am a 60 year old guy with steal and plastic knees, I still play tennis, baseball, hockey skating. My biggest trouble is finding folks who will, at my age, actually choose to play sports rather than watch. Hence, I bring enough stuff in the back of my Caliber for 4 people just in case! There is also plenty of space for my fishing gear when I go out fishing although I do need to be careful about getting that 'fishy smell' in the car. My wife doesn't like that part.
2006 dodge magnum
Cons: the windows noiseytwo things i dont like is when you row the window down it makes a funny sounds it vibrates as the winds is making sounds and hurts my ear. and two . the car doesnt really handle the winter roads too good. during the winter time. and the body doesn't take protect the hail damage either. otherwise i give it a average rating.
really like this car
Pros: Power and comfort
Cons: The interior is a little plain.I never had a wagon before because of the appearance. But the Magnum looks great and has better utility than a sedan or an SUV because of the extra length. I have been able to load large items easily. The power is good and mileage on the HWY with the 3.5 engine on a recent long trip averaged 26 MPH on 75-80 mph interstate driving. Wish they still made it.
