I love this car! The styling is either love it or hate it, and I do love it. The ride is firm but comfortable, performance is outstanding for such a large vehicle. The mileage on the highway is impressive - we consistently get over 25 mpg on long trips averaging 70 mph, fully loaded. Around town I admit I still like to put my foot down and blow away those Hondas and Toyotas with loud mufflers. I've done some minor modifications - the car just seems to bring out the creativity in people, I've seen some outrageous mods on line. I'm keeping it!

Recently purchased a 2006 Dodge Magnum with just under 60K miles. Car drives great and is extremely comfortable. Vehicle has just about every option, but I would not necessarily recommend every option. My Magnum came with GPS/rear seat DVD. The rear DVD is great for the kids, and works great, but already looks dated. The GPS is outdated, not touch screen (although I keep trying to instinctively touch the screen) and the maps are already old, it does not have traffic and is expensive to update. This is as expected for a 2006, but the technology is definitely not work paying a premium. Outside of these minor quarks. I love driving the car and expect to get several years our of it. The R/T is a blast without being overpowering. Cargo space is great and provides a nice alternative if you're looking to avoid a SUV or minivan.

When my husband and I were looking for a new vehicle we debated between an entry-level SUV and a sport wagon. After sitting in the Magnum, the choice became an easy one. With a ton of "get-up-and-go" (350hp), sleek design, great safety features with child seat straps built in, and great storage it was the perfect mom-mobile without succombing to minivans and wood paneling. I highly recommend the great NAV system as the display is huge and is really easy to use. Also on the hot list is an upgrade to 22" chrome wheels. A spendy upgrade, but worth the looks. We've had no problems thus far and we love the car!

We were originally looking into getting an SUV. We were looking at the Chrysler Pacifica, while a nice car had WAY too little power on the test drive. We went to an auto show and I sat in the Dodge Magnum. Right away I knew the car was a better fit for me. Being 6'2" this was the first car that I fit in easily. I set up a test drive and was going to drive the 6 cylinder model but ended up driving the R/T model. I was sold the minute I put the pedal half way to the floor going up a hill! I also wanted to add that I also drive a 98 Trans Am and this car outhandles it with ease! There is a corner that I can take at 50-55 with the TransAm but with the Magnum I have already pushed it to 65 and can still go more. The suspension is excellent for a car this size, it does not handle like any other car this size.

Great Car

by from Severn,MD on April 17, 2012

Honestly with 3 children and a lot of traveling this is a overall great reliable car! Not only is it a spacious car but when you drive it it feels like your floating.. very smooth.

My older dog was having trouble getting into and out of my 2002 Explorer Sport (197,000+ miles), the DogMobile. So I upgraded and got him a Dog Limo. And I like it too! It's got the Hemi and can really move when I need it too! Plus leather seats, all the fixin's, and lots of room for two dogs and my stuff. Great car. I found it on line and inquired about it, and the salesman brought it to me to test drive. And then the next day they made me a good deal. I wish the back window opened and that the back seats folded down flat, but otherwise it's perfect.

I rented a base model Magnum in Las Vegas and drove it for three days. It was an adequate rental for four adults plus luggage -- space and interior comfort seem to be this wagon's forte. I was less impressed with the performance and handling. I'm sure the hemi-powered version is more exciting, but the base engine is underpowered for on-ramp merging. Getting on it seemed to have more impact on the gas guage than the speedometer. I'm a big fan of the car's exterior styling, but inside, it all ads up to poor visibility for the driver. I found myself craning forward to see stoplights, and relying extra-heavily on the sideview mirrors, which aren't the best. Otherwise, no real complaints. Good controls, storage and amenities.

The Dodge Magnum is at the apex of ingenuity. This is a distinctly developed formulation of high level engineering practices which sufficiently combines the variables of performance, sporty-styled luxury, and economy. Without any doubts, the Magnum has made its mark in automotive history. Its utility is noted to be well beyond adequate as the Magnum is well suited to carrying a complement of five passengers or with the seats easily folded into the floor, can carry a host of other commodities. Thus, the Magnum maintains a high level of versatility by properly managing demanding performance and economy coupled wirj its resourcefulness in varying the payloads of choice. Cockpit controls are shown to be well designed as they are all within easy reach of the driver, and are effortlessly identified by function. In my estimation the Magnum has magnificent styling, provides a sleek looking space-age design and presents a not too out of touch futuristic look. An interesting observation is that the 3.5 V6 AWT carries the same fuel economy rating as its more powerful big brother the 5.7/V8 Hemi. This could appear to be an illogical scientific phenomena, but is the result of the Hemi engine design allowing operation on reduced cylinders. When limited performance demands are made the result is improved fuel economy. Therefore, in essence, owning a Magnum is like getting your cake and eat it too. Overall, the Magnum easily meets the grade on all fronts. Without reservation, the Magnum can be effortlessly compared to a tactical high-performance jet aircraft which is finely defined in function for its intended mission, while having been engineered for simultaneous performance on a number of multi-level platforms. The Magnum is proof: Good things do come to those that wait
