Magnum RT - - Almost perfect
By Rex on


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


Purchased Nov. 2004 -- the only car I have ever bought new off the lot. The car would be perfect if not for the slush-box tranny. Factory Contis were junk -- 13K miles. Replaced with Goodyear Assurance which are nearing their end at 40K mi. Have Michelin replacements. Issues: front-end clunk at steering extreme limits (I avoid cranking to the limits), alignment twice, popping noise in dash, unreliable rear window regulator, noisy power steering pump (even after replacement). I gather front-end issues are common. Overall, I have been pleased, but really wish there had been a manual tranny option.

Best Features

Styling. Power. Space. Comfort.

Worst Features

My first Mopar vehicle. Acceptable experience. It's a shame Dodge stopped production. I would have strongly urged a manual tranny option. Other minor issues aren't insurmountable.
