2006 Dodge Magnum
There are 8 user reviews for the SRT8 trim shown below
- Performance, sound system, performance, at a reasonbale (to say the least) price.
- Gas mileage, 4 Rotors wore funny (but Dodge replaced w/slotted disks for free)
I bought a silver STR8 and have not had any complaints at all to date (1 year later). It is simply a Rocket (as my plates state). I simply cannot drive this car slowly, too much temptation to see what it can do. This is not your average dodge or station wagon; it is a german built and sports tuned monster for the price of your mom/dad's regular station wagon. Simply too many pluses to mention for the price and nothing can touch it. I guess I should just have shut up and kept this car more of a secret. Don't want everyone owning one; Oh hey, they only make so many of these babies each year....read morehide

- LOVE THE POWER OF THIS CAR AND GREAT LOOKS SUPER PERFORMANCE FOR THE PRICE
- NO HID LIGHTS AND CONFUSING STICK
I LOVE THIS CAR ITS A NICE CAR WHO HANDLES LIKE A TRUE MUSCLE CAR. ADD A AIR INTAKE AND YOU GET 20 MORE HP. THE ONLY COMPLAINT I HAVE IS THAT I SHOULD HAD BROUGHT HID LIGHTS.

- 0 to 60 in 5 sec and great handling
- Had to wait a year for it to be released on the market
This is the best SUV replacement on the market today. After 20 years of driving a SUV this SRT 8 Magnum has been nothing but pure fun to drive and still have the utility of the old 4Runner. This my second Magnum the first one was a 2005 Magnum RT. Putting the pedel to the metal in the SRT 8 was all that I needed to make up my mind to trade up....read morehide

- Super performance and Super Safety, Great looks, Versatile, Plenty of room for family
- Fuel economy, Auto stick is a joke, Fighting with spouse for keys
This car was made for people who crave performance but also have others (wife, kids) to think about. You have heard the performance superlatives and they are all true. This car will destroy anything short of an exotic next to you. But tell the exotic to carry your kids and the groceries. I think not. An aggressive, sporty look that will definitely hold up over time, this car looks like a killer and it is.
Apart from super get-up-and-go, this car is super safe. Five-star crash ratings all around and available air bags and curtains means you will not only arrive fast and in style, but safely as well.
I am 6'4" so room was a big issue for me. The Magnum delivers with plenty of leg room and ample seats. Head room is a little close but not a bother. Seats are huge and comfy, leather all around. The kids (and even some adults) can fit behind me without me having to cramp myself up front which is a real plus for me and them.
The cargo room is ample, as you would expect from a wagon, and the sounds are great 6 speakers offer plenty of sound but for those who like to boom when the kids are at school, the stereo upgrade is nice... if you are into that type of thing.
The one complaint I have (besides gas and that is not really a complaint because you know that going in) is that for all the performance, the autostick offered is horrible. Side to side? Cmon, not even an "upshift/downshift" motion? Its confusing to engage and disengage and after a while you wonder why they even bothered.
Overall, this car is a real bargain for what you pay (comparable or better performance than a Porsche for less than half the price). If you are a Dad (or Mom) that wants to tote the kids and fam around but dont want a lumbering SUV or a "puddy wagon", get this car. You will NOT be disappointed....read morehide
