    2005 Dodge Magnum - RT RWD

    Pros: Power, ride, interior space

    Cons: The cruise control should be on the steering wheel

    Advice: Get the Hemi. If you're considering an SUV, check this out before you buy.

    My Magnum RT is a hauler that also hauls ass. The exterior styling turns many a head. Handling is tight and responsive, yet the ride is quiet and comfortable. pThis is the perfect vehicle for me.

    2005 Dodge Magnum - RT RWD

    Pros: HEMI, transmission, and stability control.

    Cons: The cruise control is in the worst possible location. Move it to the steering wheel.

    Advice: Dodge is churning them out. They are not hard to get. Shop around. Don't pay a dealer markup.

    My Hemi is incredible. Best bang for the buck in 2005. The engine is effortlessly powerful and the tranny is silky smooth. The car turns heads everyday. Many, many compliments at the gas station (which I have to visit too often).

    2005 Dodge Magnum - RT RWD

    Pros: Hemi

    Cons: Chrome bump strip on the RT model

    Advice: Buy the RT for the combination of performance and better braking system

    When I first saw the Magnum at the Grand Rapids Auto Show, I knew that Dodge had a styling winner. When I drove it six months later, I knew Dodge performance was back. The combination of styling and affordable performance takes me back to the musclecar era when driving was fun.

    2005 Dodge Magnum - RT RWD

    Pros: Spacious driver and passenger compartment

    Cons: impossible to find

    Advice: Buy the Hemi, the 2K difference in price is well worth it

    The Daimler engineering really shows in this vehicle. The Hemi powered RT is the fastest, smoothest riding car I've ever driven. Loved it!

    2005 Dodge Magnum - SE RWD

    Pros: The interior seating. Back seats are raised so you can see over the front with no effort.

    Cons: I didn't get the side mirrors that absorb impact and 'give' if struck. My fault.

    Advice: Don't bother with the phone accessories, you don't want to wreck this beauty.

    I love this car. I have the SXT with the V6 and it carries the load. The care is sleak, fun and very comfortable. It took a while to get used to all the different positions of the seat, stearing wheel and pedal location but I found what was best for me. This wonderful vehicle would be great for anybody and versatile enough for a family, business or an individual just looking for a great car that is pur joy!

    2005 Dodge Magnum - RT RWD

    Pros: Styling

    Cons: No rear flipper window, anemic sounding exhaust

    Advice: drive it, and you'll buy it. Go no smaller than the V6!

    Picked it up new in Milleville, NJ on June 6th. Been smiling since....The Hemi is a hoot! This car scoots! Wonderful highway acceleration that just keeps coming! The interior dimensions are very impressive, and the fit and finish are definately Mercedes influenced. A rear 'flipper' window would be nice as well as seat pockets for the front seats. A more authorative tone is needed on the exhaust - it sounds kind of puny considering a 'Hemi's' in it. Driving wind noise is non-existant the car is stone silent going down the road. The GPS and Sirius satellite radio are super options. Needs more interior lighting (floor, glove box). Overall a fantastic buy for mid $30's. Gary, Connecticut
