    Stunningly elegant vehicle, especially in the Inferno red version.

    One slight problem: afraid to drive it anywhere for fear of scratching it. (This, too, shall pass.)
  • Is a 10% discount off sticker all that unusual? I figured it was about standard, particularly since invoice price is usually in the same ballpark. Definitely not attributable to my good looks.

    I think mine has about every option (less AWD) that could be installed. It is great to drive. MPG's well we will see when I have to get more miles on the vehicle in town. :) My MSRP was north of 38000. The dealer had about 8 of the same color all fairly loaded. I knew that it would be a good time for a deal, last of the month too doesn't hurt either. Armed with the costs I was able to get about 11% plus some goodies for my Jeep. Let see if I can remember the options.
    ROOF,SELF SEALING TIRE PACKAGE, TOWING PACKAGE, ROOF-AIRBAGS, NAVIGATION, REAR DVD, PEDALS, UCONNECT (HAD THIS INSTALLED IN MY JEEP, WORTH EVERY PENNY),SIRIUS, STEERING WHEEL CONTROLS, ONE SWEET MOTOR.

    July 5, 2006, I bought a new leftover 2005 Magnum RT stickered at $31,420. I paid $22,249 out the door (out of state) and then another $690 for sales tax and registration in my home state. It did have 1,445 miles on it, but had not been titled.
  • My local dealership has 3 2005 leftovers on the lot. They have 2 R/T models which are exactly the same. The sticker is $33,690. What kind of deal do you think I should be able to get on these?

    In early Feb., on a Saturday I heard from another LX forum that Woodhouse Dodge, Blair, NE advertised about a dozen Bright Silver Magnum SRT8s with Option Group 1 only, stickered for $39,080 and they were offering for $28,840. Sent them an internet contact on Sunday. Salesman called me on Monday morning (WV). By Mon. afternoon I had them delivering my MSRT8 by private trailer. It arrived on Thurs. morning (like the Schwan man). MSRT8 came off, my trade (a '05 300C, minimally optioned) went on the trailer in it's place, and the driver hauled it back to NE. BTW, they gave me my price for the trade and delivery was only $900. Who could say no?!

    Here's a couple pics. Then...

    And now... after adding electronic rearview mirror, U-Connect, MoPar rear parking sensors (all the things the orig. consignment car didn't have), plus tint, pin striping and some additional badges and interior appointments... I'm still way ahead of the cost game.

    Wow, that's the best deal I have ever seen, and you just paid $900 for transportation?, that's like a double bonus. Could you please share the contact person's name, thanks.
  • goofytimlgoofytiml Posts: 41
    I "think" it may be against forum rules to post salesmen's names, so I'll refrain. But you can access the Woodhouse.com website, check out their inventory and make an internet contact. One of their many sales staff would follow-up in rather short order.

    As I understand it my vehicle was one of 11 or 12, and a one-time consignment-type opportunity to the dealership. Although I heard that Performance Dodge of Lincoln, NE had a short-term sale in the weeks after that (back in Feb.) in which they were making similar discounts on either left-over '06 Charger and Magnum SRTs. Don't know that there are any deals like that out there anywhere at the moment.

    But just like the situation changed for me... it can come quite unexpectedly... and you just have to be ready to pounce on it.
  • awesome deal! should be plenty of great deals on srt8 now that the 08 is coming up with more badazz upgrades. new onex have functional hood scoop, check this site out for more photos. http://www.rsportscars.com/eng/cars/dodge_srt8.asp

    Can't say I'm a fan on the new grill design, cutting back on the larger openings above the bumper, and I definitely don't like the high pig-tail antenna! Do love the projection headlamps however... giving it more of the Charger-type look though.
  • If only the SRT8 came with AWD. Until then I'll stick with my R/T AWD.
  • I think the new '08 Magnum grill looks too much like the Caliper, or Mini-Mag as I call them. And the new antena looks like a throw back to the old analog cell phone era. I think it's just to get away from the problems some/many had with AM/FM radio reception with the rear glass imbedded antena (perhaps more related to tinting options). I've never had those issues, but I'm not a fan of the pokey pig tail.

    Actually, its the Caliber. And considering the Caliber was styled after the Magnum originally, it is the other way around.

  • I knew that! Just didn't realize the typo there.
  • hi i am looking at a new 06 magnum awd rt with everything in it.any help would be great.the car is 2 years old and 08s are coming in. :)
  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 17,278
    what kind of help are you looking for? I assume pricing? It is really really tough to price something like that. I mean, I would say price a used one and subtract for miles.

    All I can tell you is that I recently saw one just like you describe but with 5k miles advertised for $21,995. Even if we assume paying full asking price on that one, and we allow for 20 cents per mile, then I would say one with zero miles should be around $23k.

  • price is 40k they said 32 they want me to come in. you know how that goes.they will not give solid prices on the computer.how far sould i push them on price 23 sounds good to me but i can buy a new o8 rtawd for about 32.i know the longer that car sits the less it is worth.do you think they would take 23 for it.everyday that car sits they lose. on it any help would be great.thanks ps what kind of problems should i worry about on a car that has sat for 2 years thanks again. :)
  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 17,278
    The only concerns with a car sitting for 2 years are the fluids. If there was gas sitting in there, it is in bad shape by now. And the oil may not look bad, but it should be changed, too.

    Well, it can't hurt to make an offer. The worst they can do is say no.

  • I have only this to say, I paid a lot for my RT, much more than most admit to, with all the goodies, extended six year warranty, tire and wheel damage warranty for six years (replacement as long as there are wear bars, up to $5000). But the true mark of how much you like your car is even if you did not get a great deal or what, you still love it many many miles later. So I can say that the large sum paid was well worth it, and I'd do it again. Not many RTs out there with Cold Air Hood Scoops and Candy Pearl Red. Yup a keeper!!!
  • Just bought a NOS R/T AWD for $23,900. Great car, no problems so far (time will tell).

    The only fluid I would worry about would be the old gasoline. I store my '87 Grand National for long periods, and have never had any problems (I put in gasoline stabilizer). That's a good reminder though. I'll put in some drygas and injector cleaner tonight (the old gas has already been diluted with a fresh tankful).

    Has anyone else bought an extended service contract? I'm considering getting the no-deductible, 7-year, 50K mile contract ($1,480 plus $200 extra for the AWD). I normally try to avoid dealer service, but with the exotic parts on this car, I think that it may be a good idea. The last time I brought my Mercury Grand Marquis into a dealer, it cost about $700 (they had to replace a circuit board).

    I figure any time you really need dealer service, it's going to cost you at least $500, if not $1,500 or $2,500 (or more). So paying $1,680 now seems like cheap insurance and peace of mind.

    Just passing through here... I posted this inquiry in some of the other Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep forums, so I thought I'd try here too.

    Wife & I have twins on the way (in addition to our 3-yr old) so we need to bite the bullet and get a minivan. We're going to get a Dodge GC or a Chrysler T&C sometime in June. Money will be real tight since wife will be quitting work to stay home, hence us going down to one income, so if anyone has a friends code for 2008, then I would reeeeeeally appreciate it. .... I'll even put you on my Christmas card list!!

    e-mail me here at carspace and let me know....

    Looked all over the state for this one! Wanted the Protection Group and for some reason they don't usually come with this option. Was able to negotiate the deal over the phone & flew down to pick up my new car! Internet Manager at Tuttle-Click Dodge in Irvine Calif. was great to deal with. No games and a great price. Even agreed to pay my airfare to come pick her up! Has customer preferred pkg 29P, Protection Group, Sunroof, MyGIG Nav. Bright Silver. MSRP 37,060 - paid 29,860 plus lic, tax & fees. I was willing to go anywhere in western states to find one and have been looking for a long time and called several dealers. If you are looking to buy at a no hassle price and no games once you arrive this dealer is the one to use. Now all I have to do is worry where to park her for the next umteen yrs.
  • I love it. :shades:
    I hope you're around to tell me the color and width of the pinstriping. That is definitely a touch of class I'd like to replicate on my silver beauty--copying is the best form of flatter ;)
  • Hey,

    I just bought a used 06 AWD SXT with 43K for 15,700. It's loaded with leather, Bose system, heated seats, & DVD player. I'm having buyers remorse today. Can you guys give you LONG Term feedback of being a magnum owner.

    Thanks!
    :confuse:
  • I don't have much of a "long term feedback" since it is '08 but the Magnum has been a great car. Ours is RT so driving around town gets lousy mileage (18mpg) but this baby is meant to cruise! We drive between Calif and Az & on the open road with cruise control we have been getting 25mpg. My husband had it up 115 when we were in Mojave (shhh! don't tell anyone!) and it felt like we were doing 70. I hope you don't have buyers remorse. It's fun to have a car you don't see everywhere, although you know what they say, once you own one you see them everywhere! LOL Still too new to have ANY problems and we haven't had any. Love my MagWag.
  • im about to buy a 2005 sxt awd magnum with lil over 100,000 every option with 20 inch wheels and the stock 18 inch tires the car runs well and had it check and its 100 % the price 7000 should it get please let me know ..thanks
  • I would really look at ones that have many mods .. with high mileage. I have a 2006 RT AWD with little over 46k miles and kept well all way round... She's been trouble free as well. The SXT's and SE's are easy to find and I would do a little searching for one with lower miles that you can get. They are not that hard to bargain for as well if a dealer has one. Angelo
  • i recently noticed that the dodge magnum is or i think is being discontinued. can any explain if they are coming out with a revamped version to compete with the new 2011 CADILLAC CTS-V WAGON. considering the v model is very fast, what is dodge going to do now? i really hope they come up with something in their playbook. i'm sure all the fans would agree, unless of course you like the cts-v. i like both but, they are competing for the family vehicle wagon title. i wonder??? let's bring back the wagon for men like road and track stated!

    my Maggie is still loved by me. She has 51K on her and is an '05. I've been through all the initial problems of the "new" design including the pulling to the right, which was finally resolved and I avoided the buy back from DC. I've had new tires at 16K, and cylinder issue that they fixed way back when, and other annoyances that were finally resolved. All because I love this car, I'm not giving it up. To make a long story short, my 17 year old son got a '09 Pontiac G5 GT for a steal last May. Fully loaded, safe, etc. After having it for a few months, he kept asking to borrow Maggie. Find out he loves drifting/donuts in the winter with her!!!

    Just 2 weeks ago, he was in an accident in which a Silverado crew cab made a right turn from the left lane right in front of him. Needless to say, the truck flipped over on it's roof and the G5 was totaled. All involved were fine. My son loves the Magnums and we found one in Colorado (we live near Chicago). It's an '07, SXT, black, 17K miles, one owner with the carfax. I spoke with the dealer who sold the 1st owner the car and found that the man took very good care of the car. He traded it in on a Nissan (?). Anyway, I ended up paying $14,988 plus tax, shipping, etc. The car is being trucked here and should be here by the weekend.

    My point is, that if you're thinking about buying one, search all over. Stay away from the '05's as they were the first to come out and had alot of issues that may or may not have been solved. This is one terrific car that is becoming a collector car, IMHO, and a joy to own and drive. I still can't find another car that I'd rather have. :D
