very dependable car. average about 1000
dollars annual in maintenance. keep the
car in good shape. rebuilt engine at
225000 miles. started using a little
oil. after rebuilt fuel economy went
from 22 to 28 mi per gallon and very
little oil. runs like new at 250000 mi
and body still stylish. lincoln ls
looks just like it in 2004. I would buy
another diamante. everyone else i
talked with was very happy with theres.
I have never done a brake job,
transmission work or muffler system.
only one alternator and starter. love
this car and plan on hitting 400000 mi.
interior, style still current. low
maintenance and high dependability.
Parts last a lot longer then american
cars. the car is built very solid and
cvc joint needs replaced too frequently
because the rubber boot will crack then
dirt gets in there.
I am surprised by some of the reviews i
am reading. My Diamante was passed
down to me by my father of which he
bought new. I have not experienced any
problems in 1 1/2 years and i can vouch
that over the life of this veh. my
parents experienced limited problems.
For those of you purchasing this or any
used vehicle, scrutinize where and who
the veh. was owned by. The way a veh.
is driven and maintained can hurt a
used car buyer. A car dealer obviuosly
won't tell you that the last owner
average speed is 80-90mph with oil
changes every 15,000 miles if that and
etc. Be careful!
interior cabin. for a 1992-upgrades
comparable to vehicles on the market in
2004. if clean-still turns heads.
tires wear out tooooooo fast-repeated
I owned the car for 10 years. That alone should tell you the quality of this vehicle. I have done one major tune up, changed the brakes pads (twice), tires (twice) and the timing belt once. The car has 165,000 miles and still drives great. The car was driven by me first, my wife second, my daughter third and I am back driving it. This car is worth every penny the asked for when I bought it. It is nice not to have car payments for 5 years!!!
