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.

2005 Dodge Magnum Owner Comments

2005 Dodge Magnum make S a buzzing noise from the trunk and windshield wipers do not work properly. ***** the consumer noticed the inner paneling around the hatch door was not cut properly. One side was flush, inside the groove and the other side was slightly separated, which caused the vibration. The consumer placed small pieces of cushion inside the open areas to hold the panel steady. The fabric molding around the window was sagging. The window controls on the rear left side sunk into the door and the window locked on its own. The consumer took the vehicle in to have a recall repair performed regarding the transmission and the dealer had the consumers vehicle all day and failed to inform them that they would not be able to get to their vehicle.
