Notes: This is a classic example of why you should avoid the first model year of a new car. Sure, it's new and shiny but there's going to be some growing pains.

The 2005 Magnum has problems with the gear shifter getting stuck, a shaky and sometimes stalled engine and transmission failure at 75,000 miles.

Let someone else deal with those headaches.

Magnum 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

I was exiting the freeway and heard a big noise, right after the noise my front tire locked on the passenger side. I pulled to the side and called aaa to tow my car home, when I got home I took of the tire and came to find out that my caliper with the bracket broke and cracked my rim too. The weird part of it was that only the front passenger side tire locked and the other 3 tires are fine. I still haven't fixed it due to funds at the moment.
