Great Second Hand Car

published

We have a TF Executive 97 V6 Magna sedan and it's such a great car, we got the car at 185,000km and now up to 227,000km with no issues at all. The fuel economy is around 8L/100km country and 10L/100km urban, the power of the engine is great and it runs superb.
Reliable, inexpensive to run, everything
Nothing at all

Mine was the 3.0Litre Solara wagon. I did not maintain the vehicle well at all, and it was as reliable as an axe. I did tow a tandom trailer with a kubota tractor on it at one stage, which affected steering and taking off up steep inclines was a challenge. The car was great on fuel as well, around town and became outstanding on the freeway.

If you are on a budget, they are every bit as good as a Commodore, Falcon or Camry, but not as good for towing as the rear wheel drive family cars.
Comfort level, ergonomics, fuel economy, reliability.
Cabin a little cramped compared to commodore. Not good at towing anything larger than a box trailer. Astmatic engine (3.0L model)

We got ours which is a 1998 model second hand. And we haven’t had a problem with her it’s great, even as a second hand older car she is still running well. We do get her serviced regularly and I would advise taking them to be serviced at a Mitsubishi approved mechanic as even though the price for the service tends to be slightly higher it’s worth it as they really know these cars and can spot a problem before it becomes a major problem.
Great car, great interior looks wise. Very low cost to run, reliable.
Can't fault this car at all

Either the pump never worked to start off with (it does happen) or a short has blown a fuse.
