Proud of my Magnum
By Joel on
2006 Dodge Magnum RT 4dr Wagon AWD (5.7L 8cyl 5A)
Man, this thing is huge - at 4500 lbs it weighs as much my wife's mininvan! And, it drives like it, too - not exactly "agile." I would have never payed $35,000 for a new one, but for $13,000 w/65,000 miles I think it was a steal, and it's one of the coolest looking cars ever. Doesn't feel as fast as you might think it would, and gas mileage still not good even w/cylinder management. But, every time I look at it or smash the gas, it makes me smile. Oh, and it'll hold quite a bit of crap, too.
Looks, amenities, 340 HP, AWD, resale value (when you're buying, not selling). No cooler wagon on the road.
My '99 Regal has a better automatic transmission. Why is the steering wheel so huge? A smaller one would make the car drive smaller. Give me gas money.
