5th and LAST Chrysler Corp. product
By brass2 on
2005 Dodge Magnum RT Rwd 4dr Wagon (5.7L 8cyl 5A)
Initially, I loved this car but honestly how many of all the cars that have ever been made are terrible from day one.
There are so many problems, that have nothing to do with operator error, like the windows regulator, headlights that either don't work or flicker and a shifter lever that was made so cheaply that apparently it is just short of recall, the list goes on and on.
This car had so much potential, but the shoddy (and overpaid at $75 an hour) workmanship along with inferior parts combine to outweigh any positives or potential for greatness this car had.
I love the dichotomy of the wagon and a big engine which make it such a perfect sleeper.
The styling is typical Dodge, you either love it or hate it and I happen to love the styling.
Just like Lada, Chrysler needs the government to stay afloat.
The reason for that is the products have continually gone downhill since Iacocca left.
Of course this is not the first time that Chrysler needed a bailout, so it should be no surprise that they would have fallen back in to their old ways when the one strong person they had, left.
As much work as this vehicle appears to need work in the foreseeable future, I wouldn't be shocked if the whole company gets scuttled and then no parts would be available to keep it on the road.
