After Selling my Skyline and A Chaser I was left with a Ford Falcon !

So I wanted to buy something cheap as I had plans to buy a motorbike later on.

I use the car on the weekends but during the week I just drive it station.

So few months back I purchased a cheap car , spent about 3800 dollars on Mitsubishi Magna Solara
-3.5 Litre V6 engine powering the front wheels with about 165 Killowatts at 5K RPM
-Equipped with dual airbags
-Power steering
-Power Windows
-Central locking
-Alloy wheels


When I got the car, it was in really bad condition. The interior was dirty , upholstery was having marks. The cars interior was stinky. The engine was not serviced properly.

The car when I got first it was like this.

Re: 2000 Mitsubishi Magna Solara Built and review

First thing I had to do was to get rid of the stinky smell. I took the seats out of the car and cleaned the interior with this liquid called Steamy. Its a carpet cleaner and deodorizer.
Took me one day to do all that job and clean the interior.
Also the CD player in the car was stock and had some code. I just got a new one and installed myself.

The pictures below tell you the story

The carpet wasn't in that good conditions either. SO I got new mats , seat covers and boot mat for the car .

Installed aluminium pedals too.

That white powder in the car was carpet deodorizer. We have to vaccum it after sometime to get rid of any smell

Good that you bought this model. 2003 onwards Mitsubishi Magna looks somewhat weird from front. Kind of overgrown Mitsubishi Lancer Cedia that we have in India. But I’m a fan of its sheer stance coupled with decent exterior and interiors looks. With 3.5 Liter V6 under the hood, it must be a hoot to drive.

Drive Safe,

why you got this car if you wanted to get rid of it and knew its not that good?? [confused]
He wants to get rid of the smells, and not the car.
