A beautiful machine with some early production issues...
Random stereo malfunctions - Computer software upgraded.
Random car will not start - Replaced computer.
Rear seat belt faulty - replaced.
Rear hatchback doesn't close properly - dealer adjusted.
Car pulls to the right. Dealer adjusted.
Stability control interferes with quick right turns in traffic. Kills power at REALLY BAD times. Stability Control can be partially disengaged, but with this beast, not a good idea.
This was a mean looking machine that just didn't live up to my inflated expectations. Dodge still has build quality issues, the Magnum R/T can be more of a rocket with better intake and exhaust. Yes, it's a little thirsty. Expect 11 or 12 mpg in stop and go traffic, and 20 mpg tops on the highway. My kids didn't like not being able to see out of the high windows.
I loved the comfort, the safety, extremely smooth ride.
Dealer service was excellent.
I bumped my poor toddler's head every other time I put him in his seat.
I wasn't happy with the inconsistent and large gaps in the front end (hood and fenders).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
