05 dodge magnum shifter gets stuck in park due to cheap you plastic in shift assembly. Had it repaired at dealer for 390 but still pump brakes to get it in gear. Engine rebuilt at 60,000 miles due to lifter failure and I use synthetic 05w20 oil. This is my 3rd dodge product, never buy another. I see why they got fined 105 million
I am 6' 3" my wife is 6'1" and the youngest daughter is 6'4",,,,,, there is no shortage of room in this car and the 5.7 Hemi has the power to make it move. The suspension rivals many sports cars and the weight distribution is 51/49 front/rear which adds to the handling capabilities. I did not buy it for fuel economy, but at 15 city and 24 highway I am more than pleased. One of the most fun cars I have owned and driven. It's a shame they stopped producing it
Bought this one a few months ago with only 98,000 miles on it. I put mid grade gas. 45 dollars to fill up the tank and lasts a week. Putting about 40 miles daily. As long as oil change plug wires and fuel cleaner is done every 4,000 miles(full synthetic) sea foam fuel cleaner, runs perfect solid smooth. Oil change is about 70 16 plugs runs about the same for good quality. But on the highway no daily driver can catch up to you. Peaking at 148 mph. Back from jersey at night no Lexus or Mercedes can keep up. Warning pistons rated at a max of 500hp. Be careful tuning just add k&n flow master full exhaust w headers and family and muscle car can't ask for more as a family man.
Leather,a.w.d traction control,satellite radio,6 disc c.d changer 288 watt Boston acoutic.(wife and kids love that) big 18 inch rims and tires for a wagon. Aggressive stance,gas mileage,available upgrades,THE HEMI!!!
2005 Dodge Magnum SXT AWD 4dr Wagon (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I bought an 05 sxt awd. it now has 89.000 miles on it and I have never had a problem. keep up with the required maintenance and it should last a long time. I installed a mopar cold air intake from mopar performance and bought a predator tuner and did the 93 octane performance tune and what a difference. with the predator it is like a different car. you can change the axle ratio for quicker acceleration and the transmission to shift firmer. you can make the autostik so it will not shift for you so you can actually hold the gear to the full 6.500 rpms.. my magnum is black and gets a lot of compliments. I just replaced the sparkplugs myself and taking off the upper intake manifold is not to bad
awesome styling. awd for the winter. six disc cd player. plenty of room inside. good solid American car ride with good handling and weight distribution
the magnums and chargers should not be made available with the 2.7 motor the 3.5 is a good motor with 250 horsepower and even better with a cold air intake and a predator tuner. for some families the hemi is a little too much for young drivers but the 3.5 is real good choice and moves the magnum on the highway with no problems at all.
Now when I bought this car new it was sitting on the show room floor and was loaded with every option the 05 had listed. Yes I even had heated seats WOW! $43.000 American, my first house cost 23,000. Bought it for my wife with dreams of getting it after she grew tried of it. Still waiting.....1st: The car was making a loud banging sound, when turning while backing up . Like the noise a locker rear-end makes when turning too fast (planetary gears both were replaced)..2nd: Real very weak transmission (everything replaced, was replaced with upgrade parts, from dodge). 4 torque converters later and many trans fluid flushes, it still shakes when it shifts from 2 to 3rd. It used to shake when shifting from 4th to 5th.. Next time the whole transmission will need to be overhauled. Seems the clutches begin to get shiny, from all the slipping. Truly only problems are the drivers seat cover leather and vinyl , replaced twice(vinyl cracks) , painted the front, top and back (clear pealed off), had the planetary gears (both AWD) replaced when new, and the real bad transmission. Seems this car will always have a bad transmission.. Two more real small things ...the GPS knob on the radio fill off and they don't make one that just snaps on, it means I don't have a map anymore.. The third light went out and takes a couple hours to replace, easier to replace the tailgate..Have you ever tried to change the fog lights Ha!
