Mitsubishi Magna 1993 5 spd manual 2.6L model was top of the line for that year i have been told ,has leather interior ,5 alloy wheels, has a fair bit of rust in body ,so really only selling for parts ,has been parked up for some years and previous owner had lost the keys so will probably need a new ignition ,i was told it was running until it was parked up many years ago,so i dont know if it does or not but would assume the petrol pump etc would probably be seized after sitting so long anyway

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: MITSUBISHI MAGNA (2000 TO 2005)

The youngest Mitsubishi Magna is now a teenager, so the general rule is to treat Magnas on a case-by-case basis.

That said, there are a few things to look at starting with the service history.

Essentially, the Magna V6 in these later versions needed an oil change and a new oil filter every 10,000km.

Ignoring this was bad practice as old oil soon caused wear in the engine.

The first sign is noisy lifters - a ticking sound when you start the engine - and if it's present, the damage has already started to occur.

A puff of blue smoke on higher-mileage Magnas is usually caused by wear in the valve-stem seals and keeping an eye on the level on the dipstick becomes critical at that point.

The frameless windows were noisy when the car was near new. Time and kilometres won't have improved that.
