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.

The contact owns a 2005 Dodge Magnum. The contact heard a popping noise underneath her feet on the passenger side of the vehicle. The dealer replaced the passenger side tie rod and installed a new tire. She also stated that the windshield washer fluid nozzles and the rear passenger side window were inoperable. When turning the vehicle left or right, a squealing noise was heard. While driving over 40 mph, the vehicle shook violently. When driving over bumps in the road, the vehicle would slam down and was unable to absorb the shock of the bump. The dealer stated that the struts and shocks were fine on the vehicle. Currently, the failures still persist. The VIN was unknown. The failure and current mileages were less than 80,000.
