hehe...Statement Re “Water Rats”
Found this at autoweb.com.au...thought it was a bit amusing myself..
"In the episode of “Water Rats” which screened last evening (the 10th of July) a person was shown breaking into and stealing a Magna by simply reaching under the dashboard (and presumably connecting a couple of wires together).
This is purely television puffery, as it is impossible to steal a Magna in this way. Magna and Verada have a very sophisticated engine immobiliser which has consistently been held up as an example to follow by the motoring associations around Australia (NRMA, RACV, RACQ, RACT, RAA of SA and RAC).
This unfortunate representation has brought the security of Magna/Verada incorrectly into question, and the producers of “Water Rats” have unreservedly apologised for any anguish they have caused to Mitsubishi and existing or potential Magna/Verada owners. They have promised to “right the wrong” in the next round of production, which will be a little time away. "
