We bought the base Magnum back in July 05 when my wife totaled her PT Cruiser. This car is a great driving car and we get 24MPG overall with the 2.7 liter engine. Mileage is very comparable to the many small SUVs we were looking at before we decided to buy our Magnum. The 2.7L engine is lively and responsive and we've experienced no problems mechanically.
Smooth Ride, Exterior Styling, Good gas mileage for a car this size. Lot's of room inside. Love the smaller window sizes--more shade.
Needs better OEM tires. The Goodyear Integritys that came with the car were horrible and replaced in less than two years. Interior fit and finish could be better.
