Summary:

Brillant and very sure footed package

Faults:

Absolutely nothing, runs like a dream. Fuel consumption on city cycle a bit on the high side, but very good highway cycle.

General Comments:

Bullet proof Mitsubishi engineering at its best. The AWD is a pearler to drive and a gem on handling. No other vehicle in the large passenger size comes close to the price, either Aussie made or from over seas. Outstanding build quality. No rattles or squeaks after 15000Klms. 5/10 year warranty best in the game. Who else offers 10 years on power train?

Summary:

Manga Challenge!

Faults:

Considaring I had the car for more than 30000 km, it really has not disappointed me yet!

General Comments:

As I mentioned that the car has been with me for sometime now, I have some good 18 inch wheels and lowered with VRX muffler instolled and K&N air filter. If there is any V or Straight 6's out there that would like to challenge me on the lights. Boy, are you in for some dissapointment. At the moment the car is just on 169 to 170 kw range. And a top end of 230 km an hour. Which is been done. And it will hit 0 to 100 mark with in 7.5 seconds. For those who recon this car is not good enough or ugly, that's fine. Lets let the action speak rather then WORDS! C U all at the lights when I'm smoking my wheels in to your faces.

Summary:

Fun Fun Fun

Faults:

Nothing at all.

General Comments:

This car is a bless. To be honest, I never believed in japanese/ Australian cars until I test drived the VR-X.

The looks are amazing, it's a sports car for those who have a big family and require a sedan.

The Engine is the best in the car. With 230 Horse Powers and an amazing acceleration, you will have to through tissue papers out of the window cause who ever tries to race with you will cry. The options are amazing you have cruise control, ABS, and a 6 CD changer with a built in stack (basically you don't have to go to the trunk to load the CDs).

Comfort and safety are not neglected in this beast. It is spacious, with a trip computer that gives you a high tech feeling.

Although I like German cars more, this car might be the one to change my mind.

I bought a used Magna 3.5L 2002 last month, it is a very nice car. I have a little problem, the fuel gauge never work properly, it goes on the full mark when I fill the tank full and that's fine, but when the car consumes 4-5 liters, the gauge drops to the bottom. My question is: What is the reason, and is the problem in the fuel tank? If so, it is not easy to change the tank gauge, do we have to remove the whole tank out and fix the gauge?

Hey there! You bought a used Magna? The reason your fuel gauge doesn't work is because the guy who owned the car before you never filled the fuel tank completely!

There is a Styrofoam in the tank that floats above the fuel level to actually show you how much fuel is there. It doesn't float properly and hence, sinks, giving you wrong fuel level information!

The faulty fuel sender unit is an easy fix, find one from a dealer or ever a wreckers. There is an access panel located under the rear seat.

Disconnect the old one and connect the new one (they attach to the fuel pump). All of 5 minutes and you should be done.
