2006 Dodge Magnum Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 202007

Magnum 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,000 miles


1. dangerous! entire car shakes when traveling at 40-80+ mph. The shake shows up in the steering wheel which makes the car unsafe to handle at speeds of 65mph. It is similar to the shake when you brake and the rotors are warped only this shake is not present when braking, only under acceleration and usually only when you go over 40mph. It gets so bad that people in the car always ask what is wrong with my car, especially since I have only had it 11 months. The problem is getting progressively worse. The tie rods were replaced as an attempt to fix the problem. Didn't work. The wheels were balanced on 3 separate occasions and that didn't work either. The rims from another srt8 Magnum were put on my car to see if the rims were the problem and the car still shook. (4 repair attempts, not yet fixed) 2. brake rotors (all 4) worn out at 17,000 miles (dealer will replace for free after a fight with the dealership) 3. brake pads (all 4) worn out at 17,000 miles (dealer will not replace for free, want $600 for pads, not fair since the defective rotors might have played a part in wearing out my brake pads too) 4. car nearly stalls out when shifting between first and second gear on wide open throttle. (can be dangerous if you expect the car to go and it stutters. Almost appears as if it is going to stall, like it's starved for gas).
