Bought it with a yellow sticker about 18 months ago. Had it sitting here since as I had to many projects going on. It just past the pits and licensed till 25/11/21. Drives perfect and nothing wrong but some cosmetics. Looking to swap it for a station wagon or a 2w/4w Ute. Can have issues but must be licenced! And has to have a towbar! Blue would be awesome but not a must 😁 Willed to put some cash on top for the right car. Located in manjimup but willed to travel for the right one 😉

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.
