2008 dodge magnum Reviews and News

2008 Dodge Magnum SRT8 Front
We had just finally gotten over the Dodge Magnum’s demise after a long grieving period when SRT head Ralph Gilles told The New York Times that a return of the original swagger wagon might just be in the cards. According to Autocar, we might have gotten our hopes up too soon, because the British magazine now reports that the Magnum -- along with its European cousin, the 300 Touring wagon -- may not make a comeback after all.
2008 Dodge Magnum SRT8 Front Three Quarters
Ralph Gilles and his crack team of engineers over at Chrysler’s SRT division have just finished the roll out of three new SRT vehicles and already the team is back at it. While we already know that Dodge and SRT are busy at work on the 2013 Dodge Viper and on the development of a new entry level car, according to The New York Times, the brand might also be working on a replacement for the much-loved Dodge Magnum wagon.

Component
ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION
Summary
Chrysler Group LLC (Chrysler) is recalling certain model year 2008 Chrysler 300 vehicles manufactured May 31, 2007, to May 12, 2008, Dodge Magnum vehicles manufactured May 23, 2007, to May 12, 2008, Dodge Charger vehicles manufactured May 24, 2007, to May 12, 2008, Jeep Commander vehicles manufactured April 3, 2007, to May 12, 2008, and Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles manufactured March 21, 2007, to May 12, 2008. In the affected vehicles, the ignition key (FOBIK) may not return to the "ON" position after being rotated to the "START" position, instead sticking between the two positions. Potentially, while the vehicle is being driven, the ignition may inadvertently move through the "RUN" position to the "ACCESSORY" or "OFF" ignition position, turning off the engine.
Consequences
If the ignition stays between "START" and "ON" positions it could cause loss of certain electrical functions. If the ignition key inadvertently moves into the "OFF" or "ACCESSORY" position, the engine will turn off, which will then depower various key safety systems including but not limited to air bags, power steering, and power braking. Loss of functionality of these systems may increase the risk of crash and/or increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
Remedy
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the ignition switch and key FOBs, free of charge. The interim notices were sent to owners November 17, 2014. A second notice is expected to be mailed in late July 2015. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is P57.

Remedy
Chrysler will notify the affected Chrysler and Dodge owners and Mitsubishi will notify the affected Raider owners. Dealers will replace the driver's frontal air bag, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Chrysler and Dodge owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Mitsubishi owners may call 1-888-648-7820.
