clear coat shedding off all plastic bumbers
By seamusjames on


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


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..... I wash the car myself and about 2008 saw a small chip in the front paint and a small rust spot. Heck I thought it was a road stone which chip the clear coat. Now 6 years later the whole top of the front plastic where the hood closes is peeled. As I washed it I notice the back bumper is also faded and pealing. Anyone else have this? planetary gears replaced, nav toggle broke ect..

Best Features

the room for packing everything from show dogs to iceboxes, heated seats, great mileage and power.

Worst Features

arm rest in back seat cuts its own fabric make it easier to change oil better paint clear coating bring the car back into production glass headlights and make it easier to replace the blubs

How long ago did you buy your first house? Once you adjust for inflation, I'm sure your house would still cost more than the Magnum in 2013 dollars. What an asinine comment!
