I just bought a used 06 AWD SXT with 43K for 15,700. It's loaded with leather, Bose system, heated seats, & DVD player. I'm having buyers remorse today. Can you guys give you LONG Term feedback of being a magnum owner.

I don't have much of a "long term feedback" since it is '08 but the Magnum has been a great car. Ours is RT so driving around town gets lousy mileage (18mpg) but this baby is meant to cruise! We drive between Calif and Az & on the open road with cruise control we have been getting 25mpg. My husband had it up 115 when we were in Mojave (shhh! don't tell anyone!) and it felt like we were doing 70. I hope you don't have buyers remorse. It's fun to have a car you don't see everywhere, although you know what they say, once you own one you see them everywhere! LOL Still too new to have ANY problems and we haven't had any. Love my MagWag.

I would really look at ones that have many mods .. with high mileage. I have a 2006 RT AWD with little over 46k miles and kept well all way round... She's been trouble free as well. The SXT's and SE's are easy to find and I would do a little searching for one with lower miles that you can get. They are not that hard to bargain for as well if a dealer has one. Angelo

i recently noticed that the dodge magnum is or i think is being discontinued. can any explain if they are coming out with a revamped version to compete with the new 2011 CADILLAC CTS-V WAGON. considering the v model is very fast, what is dodge going to do now? i really hope they come up with something in their playbook. i'm sure all the fans would agree, unless of course you like the cts-v. i like both but, they are competing for the family vehicle wagon title. i wonder??? let's bring back the wagon for men like road and track stated!

my Maggie is still loved by me. She has 51K on her and is an '05. I've been through all the initial problems of the "new" design including the pulling to the right, which was finally resolved and I avoided the buy back from DC. I've had new tires at 16K, and cylinder issue that they fixed way back when, and other annoyances that were finally resolved. All because I love this car, I'm not giving it up. To make a long story short, my 17 year old son got a '09 Pontiac G5 GT for a steal last May. Fully loaded, safe, etc. After having it for a few months, he kept asking to borrow Maggie. Find out he loves drifting/donuts in the winter with her!!!
Just 2 weeks ago, he was in an accident in which a Silverado crew cab made a right turn from the left lane right in front of him. Needless to say, the truck flipped over on it's roof and the G5 was totaled. All involved were fine. My son loves the Magnums and we found one in Colorado (we live near Chicago). It's an '07, SXT, black, 17K miles, one owner with the carfax. I spoke with the dealer who sold the 1st owner the car and found that the man took very good care of the car. He traded it in on a Nissan (?). Anyway, I ended up paying $14,988 plus tax, shipping, etc. The car is being trucked here and should be here by the weekend.
My point is, that if you're thinking about buying one, search all over. Stay away from the '05's as they were the first to come out and had alot of issues that may or may not have been solved. This is one terrific car that is becoming a collector car, IMHO, and a joy to own and drive. I still can't find another car that I'd rather have.

hi blkmagnum05... I did a small amount of research and according to kelley blue book, an '05 Magnum with that many miles in good condition should be worth about 8k and that's without the 20 inch wheels. That being said, I think it's a pretty good deal.

at the same time, If you have the finances, I would tend to agree with donnak1... i.e. try for a newer year.

We got the '07 Magnum from Colorado and it is one beautiful car!!!! Fantastic all around! We had our friend, who is also a Chrysler mechanic, check it out and give it an oil change. It was perfect in every way. I think we did well on the price and we are both very excited about the car. The only problem we've encountered, is with it being black, he washes it too much!!!!
I would definitely look for a newer model if you're going to invest in one!
