Good car, but get it serviced! and make sure it had it's 100000 service!
Valve stem seals went at 160,000K like clockwork, this is apparently quite normal.
I have had to replace the Cat at 170000.
I had the carby rebuilt twice at 170000, not worth getting rebuilt they go again quickly less than 1000k for me, I had the problem fixed by getting one from the wreckers it worked straight away.
I had to get the automatic replaced at 165000, I DO NOT think that this was a fault of the auto as I had it serviced 1 Week before it died and had not previous issues, needless to say I will not be going back there.
Radiator hose and power steering elt snapped at 120,000 once again NOT CAR's fault, I later found out the car's last service was at 92,000 and it did not have a 100,000 service in which both of these would have been replaced.
Apart from the above it has been a good car. The car is not fast, but comfortable and has a cruise feel to it.
Well made, but make sure you get one that has been looked after... make sure you see proof of the 100,000 service!!!
I would buy another Magna.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
