The interior sucks, it's heavy and it doesn't get good gas mileage. Other than that, with the 5.7L Hemi, it goes pretty decently, though the trans isn't anything worth mentioning because it's ancient and pretty useless.

pretty much summed it up.. the interior quality is better than the cobalts but it still looks very boring and blah imo.. i wouldnt get one especially with the rumored gas prices coming up

well iam not 2 concerned about interior ik what it looks like and i like it. just asking more about the engines and trans like how long do they last? are they are any good etc... the reason i want a new car is that i pay alot 4 my LS 400 bucks month becuz the bank would only give me a short term loan. i am sick of paying 400 for no pw/pl etc... i dont mind paying 400 a month for something thats worth it..and i alwase loved the look of the magnums..Michael's Auto Plaza | 2005 Dodge Magnum R/T Sport Wagon 4D HEMI
thats what am looking at gonna see how much they take for my car..its just and idea nothing it set in stone yet.. i still love my balt and if it dont work out than oh well ill get what i want in 2years lol

I love the idea of the magnum. But cheap interior + four speed automatic. Just save up till you can buy a CTS-V wagon.
