#65 of 231 BRAKE NOISE! PLEASE HELP!!!
May 16, 2009 (2:28 pm)
Hi I own a 2005 Dodge 2.7 Magnum and I have been experiencing major brake squealing. I changed the brakes/Rotors $1000.00 plus in repair. I have even brought it back to the dealership and requested all new brakes again! I am still experiencing the same if not worst sounds...almost embarrassing to drive sounds when I go to stop!! Also at 100 km a continuess loud high pitch squeal in the rear will all of a sudden appear and will sometimes go away when I apply the brake sometimes this doesn't help either...HELP! Other than this problem it has been a joy to own!

While on a out of town trip, my RF brake seized up while driving, I could smell it burning. Towed into local garage...I just had to replace all of the pads & rotors on my 2007 Magnum RT AWD w/10K miles. The rotors were so rusted the pads were shot, had grooved the rotor so bad they couldn't be turned. The entire rotor assembly was rusted solid 1/16" all over, even on the face. After I got back, took rotors to Dodge dealer. Gee..we know of no problem with these brake systems. Looks like bad cheap chinese steel to me. Anyhow $1200.00 bucks later all is well.

I have an 07 SXT. There is a lever assembly at the end of the cable that will rust and let the small brake shoes hang up ever so slightly. Some times you will notice a rumbling while driving over 20mhp and it will go away in a few miles. Mine was to the point were I had to engage the parking brake while driving (I would not recommend this to anyone!) slowly and let the brake pedal "snap" up by sliding my foot off of it. I took it to my dealer and they could not find the problem. While driving home from the dealer I heard the noise again. It was hung up.. I was "concerned" took the car apart once home and found the problem myself. I had to remove the lever assembly soak it in penetrate and work it back and fourth until it moved freely. Now it seems to be alright. I called the dealer. The service rep told me it was a common problem. I was instructed to bring the car in anyway because the little shoes were also damaged and he wanted the tec to fix it right. I know they really tried to make it right. They changed both sides and so far so good.. I also found the rotors were badly rusted. I also don't drive the car every day. I purchased my car as a left over. It was 8 months old when I picked it up "New" Not sure I would do that again....

#70 of 231 06 Dodge Magnum 3.5 AWD Brake Rotor Problem
Dec 04, 2010 (9:34 am)
I have a 2006 Dodge Magnum 3.5 6cyl AWD. The car now has 50,000 miles on it.
Since I bought the car in 08 with 20k on it the dealer has been replacing the rotors on the car every 2,500 - 3,000 miles. Last November I had to pay close to a grand to have all of the rotors replaced and the dealer has had to honor the warrantee by replacing the rotors again every 2,500 miles 5 times. The dealer now tells me that the rotors keep on turning blue and that if they replace the rotors again the OEM rotors will again fail as they have no idea why this is happening. It's not the pads and the calipers are not lagging. I am stumped and the dealer is too.
I have a loaner car and I had to order from an outside source a complete set of drilled rotors and hope that these do not over heat for about $600.00.
I have been restoring cars since the mid 1960's and I have only come across this on cars that race and have heavy braking done to stop the car at high speeds. I do not drive this car like this as it is my family car and my 11 year old son is usually in it. It is not a HEMI but a 3.5 6cyl AWD that I bought for snow and better fuel mileage. I will never buy a Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge product again because of this. Their cars are really being made to the bare amounts to pass the safety control of the government.
The Dodge Magnum was built on the same platform (frame) as the 300 and the Charger. I have spoken to many 06-07 Magnum,300 & Charger owners and they all said that their rotors keep on warping. Chrysler has done nothing to correct this. We all know that they are hurting as 60% of our country is financially hurting too and there is no reason that the public's pocket has to be hurt over a problem that the manufacturer (probably) cannot afford to correct.
#71 of 231 Rotors: OEM vs. Third Party
Jun 29, 2011 (9:29 am)
I have a 2005 Magnum R/T AWD. Looking to get new front brake rotors at 125,000 miles. Dealer wants $350 for two Mopar rotors installed. Monro Muffler will install two Wagner rotors for $180. Anyone have experience with Wagner rotors? Will third party rotors void the national lifetime warranty on the Mopar brake pads?

Howdy - I have a 2005 AWD R/T Magnum and coming up on 116,000 miles - thinking about brakes soon and searching for the best choice for this vehicle - no problems other than a miss when giving it full throttle that no one can fix?
