If you've got to have a
wagon, there's not another like this. The
2008 Dodge Magnum SRT8 is the baddest, boldest wagon to grace the asphalt. Based on the popular Magnum wagon, the SRT8 jacks up the horsepower with a 6.1-liter HEMI V8 engine, while underneath Dodge tweaks an already capable suspension to deliver the thrill-ride of a lifetime - at least, for the category of vehicles that can also tote lumber from the home improvement warehouse. When you're not hot-rodding around town, the Magnum SRT8 can be quite civilized, offering a comfortable ride, a roomy rear seat and a deep cargo hold. About the only thing to hold you back might be the price which, at over $38,000, places a $6,000-plus premium over our second-favorite Dodge wagon, the HEMI-powered Magnum R/T.
2008 Dodge Magnum line receives a freshened front end, revised interior and more standard equipment. The cruise control stalk has been moved away from the turn signal stalk and repositioned near the steering wheel's lower right side.
"I would buy this vehicle again and again and again. I get 28-32 mpg doing 62-65 mph, in a R/T!!! I drive between 90 to 120 miles a day. An 18 gallon tank will go 400 miles, that includes city driving. Does take mid grade gas, so it costs $.10 more a gallon. The double lower control arms / ball joints needs to be redesigned. Kind of a dumb design to have two pivot points and a slide point on the bottom and a single ball joint on the top. Did have to change the tie rod ends about 70,000 miles and the front end needed to be rebuilt about 85,000 miles. Other than that, I love this car. Would love to win the lottery, so I can buy a bunch of them and just put them away, until the one in front of it wears out."
"I am a proud owner of a 2006 Magnum SRT8 and i have to say it is amazing. I bought it knew in 2007 and have never looked back. The power is amazing. My friends all call it the Rocket and it will put you back in your seat. i blow out mustangs and gtos on regular occasionand it is very confortable and roomy. i have driven it non stop to texas and back and never lost conmfort. The only problems i have had are that it is so low that i broke the bumper on a parling space seperator and i have had a problem with flat tires. Best car ever."
"I was nervous about how the 3.5 V6 would move the heavy car with AWD and how the AWD would perform in the N'east winters. This car is great, the 3.5 moves this car just fine and the AWD is great in the snow. I would not be afraid to go with the 3.5 V6 and recommend the AWD if you live in a snow area. This car is more then I expected, I am very pleased with it."
