2005 Dodge Magnum RT Rwd 4dr Wagon (5.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Very good powerful car. Plenty of towing power. You give up fuel economy in the city; about 20-21 mph highway. Would work well as a second car for a tradesman needing to carry equipment like tools or ladders. Have actually moved washers and dryers with mine. Also good as a trailer towing vehicle

Review

I purchased this after a long search. I didn't want a cookie cutter SUV and a pick up truck didn't have the covered space I wanted. I looked for and found a perfect fit in the Magnum. It is a Muscle Wagon, with 340 HP and 390TQ, this thing hauls the mail and hauls a$$!! Just for giggles, I shut off the ESP and burned rubber for a block. Impressive......the ride is smooth and comfortable and though you won't confuse this with a F1 car, it does handle around the curves quite well. At 30 miles on my Interstate commute (I usually am doing 80...), I average 21 MPG. My Plymouth Sundance 2.2L auto is at 24MPG and 92 HP.....so this not much of a trade off. I really like this car. I found a 77K survivor with all the maintenance records, so this is like buying a new car. Highly recommend it!!

Review

It is a very comfortable and spacious car. It is a muscle car and picks up speed easy. The heated seats are a blessing, especially when your back is aching, even in hot Arizona. Love the shape and look. It has many, many attributes. The air conditioning is the best and really cools the car quickly. Love this car and is probably the best I have ever owned.

Review

05 dodge magnum shifter gets stuck in park due to cheap you plastic in shift assembly. Had it repaired at dealer for 390 but still pump brakes to get it in gear. Engine rebuilt at 60,000 miles due to lifter failure and I use synthetic 05w20 oil. This is my 3rd dodge product, never buy another. I see why they got fined 105 million

Review

I am 6' 3" my wife is 6'1" and the youngest daughter is 6'4",,,,,, there is no shortage of room in this car and the 5.7 Hemi has the power to make it move. The suspension rivals many sports cars and the weight distribution is 51/49 front/rear which adds to the handling capabilities. I did not buy it for fuel economy, but at 15 city and 24 highway I am more than pleased. One of the most fun cars I have owned and driven. It's a shame they stopped producing it
