Needs Subtle Changes
By Jim Farmer on
2006 Dodge Magnum SRT-8 4dr Wagon (6.1L 8cyl 5A)
The SRT8 Magnum is a thrill to drive and brings back muscle car excitment! As your heartbeat increases and your palms get moist, you accelerate from a complete stop, the G-forces press you into the seat and you smile as the speedometer eclipses the century mark in under 13 seconds. The highly bolstered seat holds you comfortably in place as you execute corners like you're glued to the road. This automobile is also practical because you can take along three passengers and their luggage with ease. I would recommend you at least test drive a SRT8 vehicle before you buy anything else!
Most notable features power, handling, and stopping capabilities. The interior is functional and well laid out. The seats are comfortable and meet the need when negotiating corners or running the quarter mile. The auto- manual transmission is a necessary additive to the overall fun when in a SRT8.
Better brakes! Improved pad materials and larger crossed drilled rotors. A sixth gear would be a nice addition and improve drivability. Increase the size of the gas tank from 17 gallons to 25 gallons.
