About Dodge Magnum

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.

2005 Inferno Red Dodge Magnum

"My husband and I each owned a 2005 Magnum RT. Both were reliable, powerful cars and very pleasurable to drive. Neither one of us ever had to have any major work done. The interior was not as plush as I like but it was very comfortable and attractive. And the exterior styling was beautiful. I could never figure out why car reviewers gave the car such poor ratings. The car was a great hauler of people and cargo and fun to drive! I think Chrysler Corporation just had bad market timing with this vehicle; it will be a classic car in years to come."

"The best highway cruiser I've ever owned. Even with the Hemi I get highway gas mileage in the 21-24 mpg range. Enough room for my family of four and enough punch for the dragstrip. I've seen the cars out there that sell for the same price and they aren't near the value of the Magnum. Mine is black and looks like a hot rod hurse."

"Bought an '05 Magnum-5.7 and so far it's been a great deal.Car got over 24MPG from Detroit to the Ohio River(350 miles).Had more than enough power in the mountains of W.Virginia.Slap-stick trans was fun to use in the curves.Car needs a tweak in the suspention to keep its'4100lbs from leaning at high speeds(but what do you expect from a station wagon w/120" wb)? Had tie rods replaced under warranty(35,000 mi.) The Continental tires the car came with were junk from the git-go!Put a set of Goodyear Assurances' on it and have had no issues since.Car has 50,000 on it and is still going strong.Too much plastic inside,but all-in-all the Dodge is well designed and is more than dependable. Next purchase will be the new Challenger 5.7! Buy American!!!"
