After having driven the lancer for almost a yeah, decided it was time to upgrade.
Few reasons:
Not enough room - Every time I have more than one passenger in the car, it's difficult/uncomfortable to drive it. Lack of rear leg room is another negative
Small engine - We recently moved houses and I finished school too, and driving to my university is pretty much on highways, so the 1.8 gets too tiring sometimes.
Safety - I'm coming from the skoda, this car has absolutely no safety features which at imes did cost me a fair bit of money.!
Age - Seeing as it's a 18YO car now, it does show signs of it.

One picture of it in memory lol

So now moving on to the new purchase. It's a 2001 Mitsubishi Magna Solara TJ. 5 Speed automatic transmission with a 3.5 Litre power plant. Fairly spacious car, no compromise on safety either. It's got 2 airbags, ABS, EBD and rear middle seat has a 3-point seat belt too.

Comfort - Loaded with features! All power windows, drivers auto. Cruise control, chilly air con etc.
Initially it did feel a bit too powerful, but slowly got used to it.

Very comfortable cruiser.

Who doesn't like pictures ;)

Re: Recycle-Art's new(old) Mitsubishi Magna 3.5 V6

That’s quite a powerful ride you have bought this time. The condition looks to be decent enough and I'm a fan of those classy frameless doors. Though no offense intended but rear end slightly reminds me of NY Cabs. Anyways congratulations and keep her well :smile:

Drive Safe,

It's got power when needed, but not excessive ;) Sure is in a clean condition, and yeh I love the sill less doors too, but makes me want to get out with the windows down all the time lol
No offense taken, all good :)

3.5 lit whoA!

congrats , hope you are enjoying!
HAHA That's everyone's first reaction after I tell them the size lol

Thanks man, I definitely am enjoying it.

But looks like I might be waving this a good bye too, even though it wont leave the family. Brother wants to buy it off me, so am considering it. But I need to find another car for myself but.
Will keep you guys posted! [:)]
