The 2005 Dodge Magnum R/T with the trailer tow prep group is equipped to tow up to 3800lbs. So you’ll be able to tow the 2500lbs with ease, with or without the transmission cooler. Dodge wouldn’t release information stating that the Magnum can tow 3800lbs if transmission heat would be an issue. So the decision to get a transmission cooler is really personal preference.
Well enjoy what’s left of the camping season!

More on my shuddering Magnum RT.
I just called to see if it was ready to pick up at the dealer and my contact said the service manager drove it after installing the new control module and double flushing and servicing the transmission and determined the problem is not fixed! ... so they have ordered a new torque converter and the installation should be completed by mid or late next week.
I have my fingers crossed and am thankful a real effort is being made to correct the shuddering problem. I was told the control system has 15 sensors, so if the new torque converter doeesn't do the trick ... only 15 mort things to explore.
Fortunately, I own a very low mleage 17 year old "garage queen" Corvette that needed some driving.
I can't wait to get the Magnum running again like it did the first 3000 miles ... it was like a quiet ... powerful ... smooth ... magic carpet! I loved it!
Stay tuned ...

What do you mean by a shudder is that like a ruff idle?
I think i have some problem with the transmission, when i brake hard then let off and step on the gas it seem like it slips or hesitates. it also seem like it slam into gear also around the same time.
I do have the problem with the ruff idle but it sometimes depends what gas station i stop at.
i bought my RT in may have 5500 mile. Dose any one know of any new service update as of late may. I am going in to get a service and would like to know about any so they do not try to pull a fast one on me.
thanks all, this site is great love my mag it pulls my boat great and rides i style.

I have an '06 RT AWD. I was told I couldn't order it but my local dealer found several for me and i just picked one closest to what I wanted. Chose a Cool Vanilla R/T AWD and love it so far.

Rough idle, goes to the right, while breaking if you hit a bump a noise like something is loose and falling apart, stereo rear speakers in 6 speaker system fades out as the volume goes up, shift from park to drive on a small incline and it sounds like it was an older car with some ware on it! These are some of the things I have notice. I love the car, but I am frustrated with does things mentioned. Took it to the dealer and was told all RT's make the car bounce while standing still in idle. Also told that the hard shift is normal because of the wight of the car. That they could not find anything wrong with the noise when breaking hard and going over a small bump. The stereo is the next dealer trip. The rear output turns down after mid point. Anyone else experience this? Where does Chrylser post problems that they notice that need repairs?

No, the shuddering is in the drive train and has nothing to do with a rough idle. See message #1427

Are you sure it is an '06? I am almost positive these are not made. It might be an '05. THe best way to tell would be if it has hood struts (instead of a prop rod), it is an '05.

My Magnum has has the rear seals replaced, the rack & pinion steering replaced, a valve gasket leak, cd player jammed up and worn out tires at 16,400 miles. I'm counting the days to declare LEMON.

How dose lemon work?
Do they just give you a new mag or do they pay off the car?
I have heard about lemon law but do not know how it works any help would be great.
