I purchase the Dodge Magnum in December of 2008 in February and April of 2009 I had to take it to the dealer because the car would not move after making a stop at the signal light on two occasions without shutting the car off and restarting it. In may on 2010, I had to take my car to the dealer because coolant leaking due to water pump went out.
