I Love my Magnum! It is great in the winter w/ the autostick and the gas mileage is not that bad either. Very roomy, much better w/ children than a CUV or Minivan! :0)




Great car if you have

Vehicle: 2007 Dodge Magnum SXT 4dr Wagon AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

When I sold my business after 27 years I treated my self to my second new car, ever. I loved it until 48 hours later when the engine knocked like heck during warm up. I was told it might go away. 14k later a new short block was in stalled. A trans recall for reprogramming, brakes warped, tie rod ends came loose, both tail lenses fogged up, the clear coat on the wheels peeled in 6k from rusty rotors,rear speakers buzz even on low volume, u-connect works less than half the time but only while answering the phone. (you get a call, you push the button, it tells you your phone is unavailable!)Frustrating!. SYNC in my wife's ford works much better. I wanted to buy American and still glad I did.

Vehicle: 2007 Dodge Magnum SXT 4dr Wagon AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

I worked @ the dealership for 14mos. and drove all models available from SE to SRT. The 2.7L V6 in the SE just isn't powerful enough for a 4000 lb car, especially in steep climbs, and it dosen't have ESP like the SXT and higher models. I purchased my SXT, because the 3.5 L V6 has a very good track record of reliability and I could not afford the RT at the time. If you can afford the RT, GET IT instead of the SXT! If you can't, the SXT has most of the base features the RT has, including the 5 speed autostick trans. Use a high grade motor oil, I use CASTROL GTX or SYNTEC and have noticed an increased gas mileage of almost 5 mi./ gal. Some recalls exist, get them executed ASAP! Nice car!

Station Wagon on steroid, fun to drive with enough power on Hwy and city. Very good AWD. But.... I had to bring the vehicle twice to Dodge for engine failure. First time one of my valve broke, second time, the engine stall, the warning light stays on and ... still waiting for teh results. Not a reliable car

I was a 4wd driver for over 20yrs and decided because I live closer to work now and mileage is more of a concern I traded my 2005 silverado with all the toys and whistles in on my magnum. It handles like a dream. I have already gotten my very first speeding ticket (at age 51) as it goes quick a little too easy. I am not used to a lower profile and taking curves in the road is fun but it is great and the mileage is great too. The interior is a little lacking on mine but I don't spend that much time in it so it isn't a big deal. The stereo is better than I thought and it seems to be reliable so far. Over all I like my "car".

What's New for 2007

There are only minor changes this year, the most significant being the availability of an R/T Performance Group package. Similar to the one offered on the Charger, the package adds, among other items, a sport-tuned suspension and engine enhancements that add an extra 10 horsepower.

Introduction

Since its arrival a couple years ago, the Dodge Magnum wagon has won over families and performance enthusiasts alike with its winning combination of surprising good looks, excellent utility and high-output engine options. For 2007, the rear-wheel-drive Dodge Magnum R/T is available with a new R/T Performance Group package. It includes 20-inch chrome-clad aluminum wheels, all-season performance tires, a sport-tuned suspension, quicker steering and a performance exhaust and intake that add 10 extra horsepower.

If you're looking for a performance-oriented midsize or large wagon, the 2007 Dodge Magnum is a great choice. Its solid construction and still-fresh styling should make it a pleasure to own. As for models, the SRT8 version is less than half the price of a Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG wagon and also boasts better pricing and utility than the Audi S4 Avant. More common V6 or R/T models also compare well to sport wagons like the Chrysler Pacifica, Mazda 6, Saab 9-3 and Subaru Legacy GT.

Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options

The 2007 Dodge Magnum comes in four main trim levels: SE, SXT, R/T and SRT8. The SE comes with air-conditioning, a telescoping steering wheel, cruise control, a CD player with an auxiliary jack, and full power accessories. The SXT features a more powerful engine, 17-inch alloy wheels (18s for all-wheel-drive versions) and a power driver seat. The R/T adds a V8, 18-inch wheels (19s for AWD) a slightly firmer suspension, an upgraded audio system, satellite radio and leather seats. Popular options for these models include a sunroof, automatic climate control, a navigation system and rear-seat entertainment system. A new R/T Performance Group package is also available for the Magnum R/T this year. The high-performance SRT-8 is equipped similarly to the R/T but has 20-inch alloy wheels, upgraded brakes, a stiffer suspension and special interior and exterior trim details.

Powertrains and Performance

The Dodge Magnum SE comes with a standard 2.7-liter V6 engine that puts out 190 hp and 190 pound-feet of torque. The SXT upgrades to a 3.5-liter V6 good for 250 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque. For serious hauling power, the R/T comes equipped with a 5.7-liter V8 with a multi-displacement system good for 340 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque. The optional Performance Group package adds an additional 10 hp. The SRT8 comes with a monster 6.1-liter V8 that produces 425 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque.

Magnum SXT and R/T models can be specified as either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. All others are rear-drive only. In terms of transmissions, the SE has a four-speed automatic but all others come with a five-speed automatic.

Safety

Four-wheel disc brakes are standard across the line. Antilock brakes, traction control and stability control are optional on the SE and standard on SXT and R/T models. Available or standard safety options, depending on trim level, include full-length side curtain airbags, a tire-pressure monitoring system, stability control, self-sealing tires and adjustable pedals.

Interior Design and Special Features

Inside the 2007 Dodge Magnum, the cabin is spacious for driver and passengers alike, particularly in the backseat. The cargo area provides 72 cubic feet of room when the 60/40-split rear seat is folded down. The rear liftgate swings up instead of out, and the Magnum offers an optional cargo organizer as well.

Driving Impressions

The base V6 engine provides adequate power and an overall pleasant driving experience, but sluggish acceleration off the line makes for a convincing argument to upgrade to either the SXT's V6 or the V8. The SRT8 is a blast to drive, with gobs of torque, sport-tuned suspension and big brakes that allow you to hustle the wagon around sharp turns like a much smaller car.
