2005 Dodge Magnum RT AWD 4dr Wagon (5.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

We rented a base SE and loved it so much we went and bought an RT AWD. The performance is outstanding very smooth and the Auto-stick is a ball for having fun on twisty roads. The ride while tight is very smooth with no intrusive harshness. Just right for long rides on both backroads and the interstate. Fuel economy for a large high power v-8 is outstanding! Love the in your face appearance kinda like a bulldog lovable but don't mess with me. I haven't had this much fun since my '69 Formula 340-S Cuda. Keep your Mustang and assorted generic import Sport Sedans and wannabe sport cars and tuners this is world beating American muscle with panache. "A Velvet Fist"


Best Features

Style, Comfort, Fuel economy, Quietness and its AWD combined with the Auto-stick and the Hemi are unbeatable. Unlike GM, BMW, Porshce and Ford, Daimler/Chrysler remembers the performance era and has updated it to a new standard thats practical fun and not bland or cookie cutter in apperence.


Worst Features

The drink holder location and the limeted interior color choices. Oh and bring back Black Cherry Chrome Metallic as a color choice the Magnum the body style screams for this color!

2005 Dodge Magnum RT AWD 4dr Wagon (5.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Dodge? I actually bought a Dodge? I couldn't be happier! The Magmun RT AWD is great on snow, looks fantastic, and gets 22 MPG highway. It fits my three kids with room to spare. The climate control system is great! The styling is the envy of my friends! Did I mention its got a Hemi? I've died and gone to Dad heaven!


Best Features

The Boston Acoustics sound system, the Daimler all-wheel drive system, and, in case I forgot, its got a Hemi!


Worst Features

Don't you dare change a thing. Daytime running lights? No way! We don't need no stinking "here I am. look at me!" running lights.

2005 Dodge Magnum SE Rwd 4dr Wagon (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I have the car with the 250 HP V-6 and it has ample power particularly considering the gas mileage. The car handles well and I have yet to make the tires chirp on a clover leaf even at 60 MPH. I think it is one of the best cars I have ever had. The ride is great and I have driven it for fairly long distances with no driver fatigue or sore spots. The leather seats with heaters are great. The car ride is smooth and quiet. I would reccommend this car to any one.


Best Features

I like the way the back seat works and am able to put a six foot ladder in there and still haul 4 kids to the high school. The storage option is well worth it as you can put grocery bags back there and not have to worry about food all over.


Worst Features

I have always purchased my own stero for new cars. I bought the Boston Acoustics this time. I am probably going to pull it out and put my own in.

2005 Dodge Magnum SE Rwd 4dr Wagon (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I have been admiring this car from afar since the day I saw it. I was driving a F150 to and from work and as a primary mode of transportation until gas hit 2.15 a gallon. That day I decided that I was not going to put more that ten dollars into my truck and hopefully I could make it to the dealer. I am six foot six so a Honda was not in the running. I sat down in the Magnum adjusted the seat and fell in love. Plenty of leg, knee, shoulder and head room. I decided to get the 2.7 engine instead of the Hemi based on the huge price jump for the Hemi. That was my only let down. Other than that the 2.7 has plenty of get up and go and I can save even more in gas.


Best Features

Interior room for ex-defensive linemen. Traction control work great in Minnesota. Smooth ride. Handles like a sportscar. Conversation starter.


Worst Features

None
