Re: MitsuBiShi DIaMaNtE (TRYNTRUEA2)

I'm on a long-term car rental while I'm studying here, and I have a Magna Executive. My rental is what I call the "Best of Australia" plan, because I can switch to different cars every 2 weeks or so if I please. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif I hope to get ahold of a Commodore, Falcon, MX-5, Land Cruiser Prado and 200SX during my rental period.


As far as the Magna goes, it's a fine vehicle, but I can see why the Camry/Falcon/Commodore triplets are preferred over it. Overall, it just does everything well, but not exceptionally -- it doesn't stand out in any area. It's not as reliable or smooth as a Camry, not as sporty or powerful like a Commodore, and not as slickly styled or detailed like a Falcon. I'd imagine it'd be a popular car among insurance salesmen.

The Falcon, Focus, and Mondeo all incorporate the New Edge theme with a fresh, nicely sculpted design. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
I like the Magna's design as well. It is sharp and with the frameless windows, has a nice rakish profile. The 3.5L is a gem, pleasantly torquey and smooth, but I'm not a fan of the auto tranny, which seems kinda indecisive and harsh. The interior is also nicely designed and ergonomically comfortable. I think some suspension tuning and a better programmed transmission would make it a much more desirable car. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
