A wagon to lust for?
Pros: Distinctive styling, power, room, stability control, handling, price
Cons: Grille a bit much, steering, drab cheap interior
Too big, baaad, and brawny for my tastes, but an outstanding reinvention of the traditional American wagon (except for the all too old style interior). Read More at Epinions.com

Detroit Iron At Its Finest... With A Little Help From Stuttgart
Pros: Muscle-car thrust from R/T, distinctive styling and character, bank-vault solidity, composed chassis.
Cons: Cheap interior plastics, suspension too soft, SXT's V6 out of character.
What's not to like about a hot-rod wagon with a Benz chassis and a Hemi V8? If you like the looks, its road manners certainly won't turn you off. Read More at Epinions.com

I love my 2005 Magnum, the ultimate SUV replacement.
Pros: Styling, gas mileage, performance, safety, cargo room, ride.
Cons: Awkward rear lift gate.
I recommend the Magnum. You can't beat the combination of styling, gas mileage, safety, ride, cargo space and overall value. Read More at Epinions.com

I love driving my Dodge Magnum R/T
Pros: Tough looking, fast, and sure footed.

Pros: Interesting looking people and stuff hauler. Distinctive, in your face styling.
Cons: DaimlerChrysler skimped on the interior plastics - kit car quality.

Longterm ownership review
Pros: Fast, comfortable, cool, room for stuff, it actually tows more than some trucks.
Cons: Fragile exterior, not a good winter car. The factory tires won't last 10000 miles.
I recommend buy it if you never see snow Read More at Epinions.com

2005 Dodge Magnum SE - The ultimate MANivan?
Pros: Styling, power, comfort, ride quality, gas mileage, gawk factor
Cons: Poor side/rear view, hard seats, cheesy plastic trim, only seats four adults comfortably, headrests
Buy this car if you want a future collectible/classic car and don't care about the poor side & rear view. Otherwise, buy something else you can actually see out of. Read More at Epinions.com

Pretty good for a Dodge
Pros: Value for the size and power; cool looks; tight as a vault; safety features
Cons: A few early production quality issues; lackluster transmission; rental meat
It's a great value with lots of bang for the buck. Quality is good, but not great. If you like driving something different this is it. Read More at Epinions.com
