MAGNUM LOVE

10 posts in this topic

test drove an 08 Magnum again yesterday and remembered why i like them as much as I do. I'm getting sick of driving in tall cars and want something low slung again. And the utility, yeah. The way the clamshell hatch opens, perfect for getting to your cargo.

With the 08 interior updates in tan, a livable interior! Not a vessel of death!

And just when i might like it, they kill it.

Good values on the lot, BTW. Very affordable.

Really also makes a good case for the cool wagons like the CTS wagon and G8 wagon.

I'd totally dig a lowered R/T, and the prices are pretty good. Heck, even the interior doesn't bug me, seeing as it's an improvement over my twenty year old truck. :P

I've always loved the Magnum, and would love and SXT AWD (to get the 5-speed).

The interior never bothered me enough to be a turn off. I didn't like teh guage shield going halfway across the dash and it looked blocky, but I'm not an interior bitch. However the MCE one is much nicer.

I'd love a Magnum SRT8

The hatch design is brilliant, great way to keep the sloping roofline without sacrificing utility.

I captured this Magnum at a nearby town's Memorial Day parade last year, and have seen it in action one or two times since:

I like the changes that were made for what turned out to be it's last year of production.

yeah, the 4 speed is a big problem for me. but there are no SXT AWD's out there, well hardly. no 08s anyways. the 08's get the nice interior and nice new headlights.

the hatch design is brilliant that and the packaging are why it appeals to me so much. I love cars with good space efficiency and function. The magnums back seat is awesome also.

is it true the stability control system had a major upgrade for 08 as well?

one of the best features, the cargo area on each side aft of the wheelwells has what appears to be handy places to restrain gallon milk jugs for those trips to the groc store.
