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!
