2005 Dodge Magnum Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Dodge Magnum
The station wagon with an attitude.
The 2005 Dodge magnum was my dream car the first time I saw it. My husband bought it new for me for mother's day. It has been a comfortable, economical, and reliable car. The paint has not held up well and there is a vibration that we experience inconsistently for the past 3 years. We have tried different things as suggested on forums and our mechanic has looked into it. No solution has been found. The module to the speedometer went out several years ago so I use my GPS to regulate my speed. Repair for the dash module is almost $1,000. The turn radius, style, comfort, and overall car functionality is what I like about it. And it has great acceleration.
For the love of my Dodge magnum.
My vehicle has a hemi that never disappoints. It has great get up and go. I have never had any major problems with my car. I have had problems with the shifter and the CD player but both were covered under my warranty. Just recently my dash got a small crack and my vent cover broke off. My car gets great gas mileage and is always fun to drive. I got it while my children still lived at home and now I drive my grandchildren around in it. I got the one with the rack on top and had them add the grill on the front.
Still performs quite well in handling, braking, steering, and drive mechanics.
Like with most Dodge/Chrysler cars, I know that the transmission is going to go out and big time since it is over 10 years old. It is just a matter of time. On the bright side, my ex rear-ended someone in my car and it still runs quite well since I couldn't get it repaired. (my ex lied about having insurance, so I let him drive it, thinking he had insurance. ) The motor is amazing and still roars when I put my foot down. Only needs oil changes on time to keep on ticking.
My Dodge magnum se is reliable but certain features could be improved.
My Dodge magnum has been reliable, it is a 2005 se. It is spacious in both the front and back. It also has a spacious cargo area. The car however has accessories that are of poor quality (plastic) in the interior. The shifter has also began to fail, getting stuck and unable to put in drive on the first try. The coolant vent housing air breather water outlet is also made of plastic & constantly needs to be replaced.
The vehicle has lots of space. Great for tall drivers.
I love the design of the car; it is very aesthetically pleasing and it is a comfortable car to ride in. It has proven to be fairly reliable although I do not like the air conditioning system which I have had many problems with. The gas mileage is not very good and I would rather have a more economical car, but overall I like the Dodge Magnum - it is a car with character.
It is a safe and roomy vehicle. It drives great in snow.
I love the all wheel drive. The problems that I have experienced are transmission problems and I also have a short in the wiring so the lights flicker headlights, dash and dome. Other that I have really enjoyed this car! And if you live where there is a lot of wet weather the all wheel drive is very beneficial in snow and rain.
White 2005 Dodge magnum rt reliable trustworthy.
My vehicle is a rt magnum I love that it still runs and has never broken down but sometimes it makes me think of a station wagon however it is very reliable I have to get a motor mount, there is also some issues where the tire gets flat quite a bit it does not have any amazing features since it is a older vehicle.
Spacious family car with good features
The magnum has good room since the trunk area is big. The car runs smoothly and hasn't given too many problems. When a recall comes in the mail the dealership takes care of it fast. The ignition switch has gone out but that is common in this car. Overall, great car for family and day to day driving.
Is automatic plus manual shift love that.
Transmission problems the ride is awesome no engine problems except for using oil plenty of room inside has comfortable seats love the automatic and stick shift haven't really had to many problems out of it has 150 thousand miles on it the color is beautiful for a 3. 5 the engine is strong.
I love all the room I do not feel like I am driving a truck or a van.
I love my magnum due to the fact that I am a mom and I like having the room of a van but the sportiness still too. I can always get in it and go. I so far to date have not had any performance issues with my car and I have had it for three years now I am a very happy magnum owner.
