2006 Dodge Magnum SXT 4dr Wagon AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Black metallic with blacked out windows looks cool. Nice bark from the 3.5L V-6 (don't bother with the 2.7 rental car engine, get the 3.5 or the V8 Hemi). Excellent highway handling. Great seating even in mid grade SXT. Quiet. Solid feeling construction. Cool interior.


Best Features

Solid feel, good road car, good power with 3.5L V-6, reasonable fuel economy, looks cool. Excellent seating.


Worst Features

Turn signals easy to confuse with the weird cruise control stalk. Counter-intuitive cruise control settings. Sun visors difficult to position at side windows to block sun due to visor shape/small windows.

2006 Dodge Magnum SRT-8 4dr Wagon (6.1L 8cyl 5A)


Review

The SRT8 Magnum is a thrill to drive and brings back muscle car excitment! As your heartbeat increases and your palms get moist, you accelerate from a complete stop, the G-forces press you into the seat and you smile as the speedometer eclipses the century mark in under 13 seconds. The highly bolstered seat holds you comfortably in place as you execute corners like you're glued to the road. This automobile is also practical because you can take along three passengers and their luggage with ease. I would recommend you at least test drive a SRT8 vehicle before you buy anything else!


Best Features

Most notable features power, handling, and stopping capabilities. The interior is functional and well laid out. The seats are comfortable and meet the need when negotiating corners or running the quarter mile. The auto- manual transmission is a necessary additive to the overall fun when in a SRT8.


Worst Features

Better brakes! Improved pad materials and larger crossed drilled rotors. A sixth gear would be a nice addition and improve drivability. Increase the size of the gas tank from 17 gallons to 25 gallons.

2006 Dodge Magnum SRT-8 4dr Wagon (6.1L 8cyl 5A)


Review

When you need a car that can haul and haul your stuff this is it. A true sleeper. I stepped up from a SRT4 and never looked back. If only it had the 300C interior and a bigger rumble out the exhaust. You have to go with black as your color choice. It looks so mean in black. Uses a lot of gas but what 6.1L station wagon doesn't? Ride is smooth and seats are great for long trips. Easy to drive with a great turn radius. U-turns are a breeze. Stops on a dime and handles better than most cars on the road. If you can afford a SRT8 go for it.


Best Features

Engine, wheels, SRT option one, seats


Worst Features

Spruce up the dash, less brake dust

Review

A great excuse to buy a hotrod and say it's for the family. Amazing perforance as expected. You sink into the deep bucket seats when you step on the gas. A lot of looks and compliments from other drivers and curious onlookers. Fun and functional, I can carry my boys in the back and still have plenty of room in the front for me. I'm 6-4 so that was important. A real sleeper for people that don't recognize what exactly the SRT-8 badge means. I have routinely smoked other unsuspecting sports cars. Always great fun.


Best Features

Obviously the performance and rumble of the engine. The styling is sleek and will carry for a long time. Plenty of room for me, my boys, and all our groceries and supplies in the back.


Worst Features

The car should come in stick like the great Dodge muscle cars of the 60's and 70's. The autostick is really poorly designed. A lot of brake dust, which causes the brakes to squeal a lot.
