goodI was satisfied
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.
Pros: The look and the smooth ride
Advice: It's high performanceI didn't need to test drive it, once I sat in it, I was in love, in fact I couldn't get a good deal in Atlanta, I called a friend who owns a dealership in Nashville, she bought it at the auction, I purchased it sight unseen. To answer the question, it is the best handling car I've driven, and I've driven many. The Magnum will go down in history and become a collectors 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: 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: 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.
