Our Personal 05 Magnum RT Review

    


What can I say? I absolutely love this car. I have only a couple of things I don't like, but, they are minor. The rear door has no where good to grab to close it. You have to grab the painted part. It needs a good handle. The speedometer jumps from 60mph to 80mph. I think that the 70mph should be there. It is sometimes hard to see depending on where you have the wheel set. The car is fast. Great pickup. I just can't say enough good things about it.


My 3 year bumper to bumper warranty is up in July 07. So far the only problem I've had is a bad window motor on right rear window. Replaced under warranty. As of today, April 27th, 2007, I have 8100 miles on the car.


Updated 10/23/08

Well, it's October 23rd, 2008 and I have not put many more miles on it. I just turned 9500 miles. I don't drive it much. Still love the car alot. Not anymore problems of any kind with the car.
