What to expect at 80,000 miles
By MikeInMass on


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


I bought my '06 SXT RWD used in Nov. '06 with 13k miles. It now has nearly 81k miles. Overall, it's been very reliable...roomy, comfortable, fast, no rattles, and decent gas mileage (22 mpg avg. in mixed highway and city gridlock). The RWD has only been a problem once, in a very heavy snow. The front brake rotors were replaced at 38k, and will need to be replaced again soon. The original tires lasted to 71k. At approx. 75k, a rocker arm broke, a $500 fix. The mechanic says it's common, but not frequent, on the 3.5 liter motor. Other than that, just oil changes and tire rotation. I love the styling of the car, too bad it's been discontinued. Everyone who rides in it loves it!

Best Features

Styling! Roominess. Reliability. Performance with 3.5 litre engine...you really don't need the Hemi! Sound system. Body integrity. Just a great car!

Worst Features

Front seats a bit lacking in support, but electric controls allow minute adjustments.
