1997 Mitsubishi Magna TF Sports 3.0L 6 cylinder from Australia and New Zealand
Street racer's dream car
Went through a bottle of power steering fluid every 3-4 months due to a small crack in the column, but otherwise did not affect the performance or handling.
Car sometimes idled roughly due to a faulty fuel/air ratio sensor.
Upgraded the tyres to get better grip, but stock will suffice for the normal road user.
Amazingly fast and grippy car, that eats any sedan of its class off the lights and through the bends, with stock parts.
When not fanging about, will barely use any petrol; can get 800km from a full tank with Tiptronic gearbox.
Never replaced a single thing.
Roomy; can transport 5x 6'2" people with ease and room to spare.
Amazing durability in the event of a crash (SUV pushed me into a telegraph pole at high speed, and I survived the crash; make sure the dashboard is properly secured if you fiddle with sight and/or sound).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
