2002 Mitsubishi Magna Ralliart 3.5L from Australia and New Zealand
Excellant car, would get it again
The only that has gone wrong with the car is the battery once. Just needed to be replaced.
It's the most reliable car in comparison to any car my family, friends and relatives have had.
I bought this car because we had owned a TE Magna Altera for 15 years and it never had problems except for the battery. I can't say that this car has been any different in this respect.
I also needed a comfortable car as I frequently used it for work and had a bad back. Needless to say that the seats fixed any issue I had with my back due their comfort and support.
The car is very fast yet very fuel economical. I have averaged 7.0L per 100km with it. It does climb if you push it hard to 10L per 100km, but it never went higher than that.
Its looks aren't subtle, but are very balanced, I always get compliments about it.
I found it also handled quite well for a FWD car and is a lot of fun to drive. I haven't met another car that could keep up on a twisty mountain road.
I switched the full size spare tyre kit with a tyre sealant and inflator kit, which wiped off 35kg overall due to some of the unnecessary parts like the wooden masonry board.
The sound system is very over the top and I won't be changing it.
The air con has very good air distribution throughout the car.
All up, well worth considering for buyers looking for something reliable, sporty and cheap to run.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
