We bought our new Magnum three weeks ago and I have been in love with it ever since. The weekend after we bought it, we drove it to Nashville and averaged 27 MPG. The power out of our 3.5L is amazing. It is nothing to bark the tires at a light or around a corner. Now that I got rid of my old beater, my daughter always wants to ride in Daddy's car.
Boston Acoustic Speakers, power drivers seat and pedals, strong V-6, and the "look"
Turn signal lever too low, move it up a little bit. The cruise control is a litle akward at first, but you get used to it.
My "Maggie" is the best vehicle I have ever owned or driven! It's so comfortable to drive and ride in and the Boston Acoustics are wonderful! The 6x CD player is a blast to load and listen to all my favorite music back to back. I zoom my sunroof back and turn up my tunes and enjoy the ride!
The heated seats are great in winter. I love the style of the Magnum & the bigger wheels. And the moveable gas & brake pedals are nice.
Dash lights too dim at night. Interior colors need to be brighter. Too dull. Built in compass would be helpful too.

I went to the dealership to buy an SUV and drove off in a Magnum! It was love at first sight and I'm a big guy so room was very important- definitely no complaints here. I have definitely upgraded from my minivan and no longer feel like I've given up on life! :) I definitely do not need a Hemi, but am a bit disappointed with the 2.7. It has enough "umph" to get the job done, but with nowhere near the performance of the 3.5 or Hemi.
Definitely the room, ride, mileage, and looks (most important).
I bought mine used and it was the only vehicle that would fit my budget; but...why oh why did Dodge use a 2.7???? It's OK, but definitely not the scorcher that everyone hopes to see in a Magnum. However, it will definitely keep me from getting too many speeding tickets!
Have had the vehicle for only a few weeks. Had to sell '05 Mustang and go practical. The Magnum gave me practicality and fun! Really nice car, drives very well, nice and tight. Love the low cut look, very aggressive. My wife really likes it too. Can actually be cool in a wagon.

Overall fit and finish is more than excellent for a car in this price range. Take a tour of the outside and see the detail given to the body seams, their almost perfect all around the car. sit inside and notice that this is a driver's car. It's easy to get in a good driving position and all controls are extremely easy to use. The only downside is the comfort level of the seats over a long trip. This needs to be looked at by Dodge.
Ergonomics, electronics, engine management. All the things I always thought were horrible in american cars are more than just adequately engineered in the Magnum. All in the smoothest engine/transmission package on the market today.
Seats, my major complaint. Also, why doesn"t the Magnum have automatic wipers, lights and rear sensors as standard equipement? At this price they should be included.
