1995 Mitsubishi Magna Executive 3.0 petrol from Australia and New Zealand
I have owned Magna's since I got my license 10 years ago. I'm also in the process of doing one up.
The last Magna I bought 2 years ago is a 95 TS V6 manual. I paid $450 for as I wanted it for the manual conversion. It now has got 424000km and is still going strong. Nothing major has been done to the car.
The TS regularly travels down the coast for work, towing a full trailer (400km round trip in a day).
Magna's are extremely good cars. I cannot fault them at all.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I also have owned the same model manual sedan since new (June 95). 402,000 km and no problems.
It is just starting to use a little oil due to failing valve stem seals. It will cost more than car is worth to overhaul the heads, so I just keep on going.
Sad day when Mitsubishi stopped making them.

I love my Mitsubishi Magna 1995 :D
But one bad thing about them is the timing belt... Almost every time you turn on the A/C, you will have 8 seconds of shame and then the sound is gone. Then you can sit up, and look good and drive :P
The power is good for being a Mark 2 type car, but there are some things I hate.
1. Why are the 2 front speakers not on the doors like any other car? I didn't want to take the whole thing apart to get to them, so I made 2 new holes in the front and put them in.
2. Why are there no back speakers in the car?
3. When I went to put my CD player in the car, I had to run a wire from the battery to the CD player, because the power wire in the car is too weak to turn on the CD player.
