Not your fathers station wagon by RT fan from Monona, WI on 09/08/2011. Trim: 2005 Dodge Magnum RT, Owned 4 years.
Pros: Looks and handles great. Snow no problem even with rear wheel drive. Great gas milage on the highway with awsome excelleration when you need it.
Cons: Seats are a little cheap. But very comfortable
Overall review: I bought my Magnum RT used with low miles. This has to be one of the funnest cars I have ever had and I have had a Road Runner, Malibu and Mustang in my life time. This is as close to a Nomad as it gets. Dodge keeps bringing out the Muscle cars and people keep buying them. DODGE, Bring back the Magnum soon, I need a new one!

The Next Nomad Phenom by Giantchief on 12/28/2009. Trim: 2005 Dodge Magnum RT, Owned 4 years.
Pros: Unique second look styling, never gets old to look at, torqy-hammer down power, high comfort level for a 6'5" person, reliable, versitile, practical. Constant looks and comments by passer-by
Cons: So-so dash design, meager gas mileage in town (16-17 mpg) and that's about it... NOTE: Only issues I have heard happening (not to me with 71000 miles on mine) is potential tie rod problems.
Overall review: This is my second Magnum. Owned the SXT, great vehicle but upgraded for the Hemi and never looked back. The Magnum is a phenom considering the after market modifications available. If you enjoy making your car more unique than OEM, this is a clean canvas. Online boards, some report to have nearly 200000 miles on theirs and still running. I will drive this vehicle until it breaks down, then rebuild and continue to own.

A car worthy of obsession by joeblow on 04/20/2009. Trim: 2005 Dodge Magnum RT, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Fast, roomy, looks cool, decent price. Something you look forward to driving and WANT to look back at when park it. These are qualities that seem to be lost these days in a lot of vehicles.
Cons: Nothing yet. Only had it a few days though.
Overall review: My thoughts were: why pump gas through a minivan that gets similar mileage? Who wants to buy a used mini-van after 10 years of life? I wanted a vehicle I could go long-term with and the Hemi engine should live an easy life pulling this chassis around.
