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


Bought R/T AWD in May 08, Wicked fun to drive! R/T has good pickup in the 3k+ rpm range. Little sluggish off the line. The front suspension concerns me. Has a clunking noise when you run over an abrupt bump (possible tie-rod end ($100) or ball joints($700) I've been told). Front tires seem to be wearing on the outer edges a little prematurely. New Pirelli's=$$ Plan to change tie rod ends with grease fitted ends soon and then rotate tires and realign. Fuel econ is not the best. Around town I've gotten 19 mph. Hope this car stands test of time though? I sold a good Buick Regal GS for this.

Best Features

Raw R/T power. Had fun in a gravel lot with ESC off, he he. Car sticks to the ground with AWD. Bring on the winter! Great stereo, CD changer, NAV, hands free phone all nice feature. Homelink for garage nice. Car came used with all the fancy's. Plenty of storage to bring the dog and kid to the beach.

Worst Features

New Pirelli tires seem to be wearing quickly. Steering pulls to the right. Front end parts look a little cheap. Interior comfort needs just a little refining. Arm rest on doors & center console for elbows hard and left edge of drivers seat cushion for fanny. Low ground clearance (4-in=winter concern
