Incredible Car!!!

published

I owned a 2001 TJ Executive for 6 years which was an incredible car, never had a single problem with it, quite sad that they are not made anymore. These cars are probably the most underrated cars in Australia when it comes to luxury, reliability and especially power. Even with a slightly smaller engine, Magnas are more powerful than Commordores or Falcons IMO and are also better on fuel, actually they are incredible on fuel, better than most 4 cylinders. I loved this car, sadly it was rear ended but I always have my eyes locked on another one. Recommended for any type of driver.
Power. Fuel consumption. Size. Fun to drive. Pretty much everything.
Resale isn't the greatest.

Great Second Hand Car

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

I don't know how anyone can drive anything other than these vehicles. Spacious, powerful and so reliable.
Flawless control and really the best Australian car ever released in this country. Hands down. It has the capacity to drive for hours on end and still perform under extreme conditions. Quite simply brilliant. Forget the rest these are the best!

Love that car

A real charmer, I've had 2 Magna's, 1st was a 1998 3lt sports auto & my current one in a 2002 3.5lt sports manual, great performance/family car. The 3.5 goes, stops handles better than Commodore or Falcon I've owned/driven & the Magna/Verada was always regarded as the more refined car, my 2 have also been bullet proof mechanically!
Fast, comfortable, reliable & good looking

Great car, very underrated

published

Got a 2000 TJ Advance 3.5 V6 with 167,000K's a several months ago. Since buying the car and putting about 10,000km's I changed the fluids and fitted a transmission cooler to extend the life of the transmission fluid. The car has been great, economical and fun to drive and easy to live with never once missing a beat, and the build quality is far better than the commodores and falcons that were made during the same time.
Reliable, build quality, price, smooth powerful engine
Spartan interior, slightly vague steering feel

Magna 2005 TW VRX

published

Have had the car for 6 years, 130k, no issues so far, very responsive drive, safe, reliability top notch, as others have said the 5sp auto is excellent, 7 flat 0-100km, 15.5sec quarter mile, 11.5l /100 mostly around town driving. Excellent overtaking on highway, up to 140 at the drop of a hat. Handles excellent around corners, sound system is quality, good trip computer with 11 functions from memory. Climate is control is no frills (not digital) and no problems. Great aussie made vehicle, would buy one again in an instant. Huge boot space also.
Reliability, performance, economy

TJ Magna Series II

published

I got my TJ Magna 7 years ago $12000 with 50000 on the clock and had LPG conversion fitted at 100000 now over 200000 km on the clock and still going strong. Other than a new radiator last week routine servicing has kept it trouble free and it still drives like new on duel fuel.
Extremely under rated car and I hope my next is this reliable!
Easy to drive, reliable, economical & cheap to run.
Mitsubishi Paint job! Losing lustre needs regular waxing.

Very reliable

published

Very reliable car never had hard times with it or broke down over more than three years of excessive usage.
Very stable and economic, cheap to run and service, gearbox sometimes play up but with flushing the fluid would fix it.
Acceleration is fine but expect much higher fuel consumption.
Economical and inexpensive
Loose its market value
