Strong Hold, but rusts  Time owned: more than 12 months
I purchased the MFJ-336 S mount and an MFJ-1432 antenna in the summer of 2010, and they have been on three three vehicles, a car, a mini van, and a small SUV.

The triple magnets are incredibly strong, and hold the antenna firmly in place. In fact they are so strong they prevented the antenna from getting stolen when my two single magnet antennas were.

The connector and the end of the coax (where it is soldered to the connector) are fully enclosed, which is a huge plus here in the snowy north. (there's a knock off of this mount out there where they are fully exposed to the elements)

The only down side I have found is that the casing around the magnets is made of metal. Metal is more likely to scratch the vehicle's paint, (which I've had). And after about two years it started to rust, and now is starting to show rust stains on the roof of my vehicle. This casing should be made of a high strength plastic.
 
Product is in production.
