So I'm writing this because my magnum needs quite a bit of work it's a 2005 SXT and has about 205000 miles on it. I originally bought the car off my parents cause I always wanted one and I thought the car would be really cool but but my parents Did not really maintain the car very well. So I'm just wondering how many more miles can I realistically get out of it? I'm kind of wondering if it's worth putting the money into the car? How many miles yall got on your car? The main reason I'm wondering if it's worth putting in the money is because I already have another magnum that I wanted to do a lot of work too as well let me know what yall think.

I'm not sure about the six cylinder Magnums. I've heard that there are problems with the V6 engines used in the early Chargers, 300's and all Magnums due to oil passages in the block and water passages in the heads being too small. The result is if oil changes are neglected so that sludge forms or good corrosion inhibiter is not kept in the cooling system, they are prone to engine failure. The only problems that I've heard of in the Hemi's is valve seats falling out of the heads if they are overheated. If your SXT has been neglected, I would suggest flushing out both the cooling system and the oil system really well, and put in fresh antifreeze and fresh oil to clean things out.
