2007 Dodge Magnum SXT 4dr Wagon AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Nice comfortable car with lousy windows and mediocre controls. What were they thinking? Hard to see stoplights, tops of hills etc. through narrow low windshield, the back has a narrow slit that gets dirty fast and is hard to see much in the rear either. Only question was where to mount the machine gun in the bunker. The cruise control, trip odometer are poorly located and designed, who needs an extra left handed stalk that runs right across the gas gauge. Did you hit the turn signal or the cruise control? Bad design. Controls and instruments have been much better designed in nearly all cars for over 50 years. Styling just to be different just dosen't cut it.
Engine was quiet and responsive, the 5 speed A/T with its upshift and downshift controls were well designed and worked well going uphill and down hill in the mountains of Colorado. Highway mileage averaged over 26 mpg--just as advertised. Keep engine and transmission replace rest.
Terrible window design (unless you are playing junior gangster) seriously cuts visibility. They need to steal a better instrument and control design (hire a Honda designer or buy one of their cars).
