I bought this car with about 40k miles on it. It has always smoked. Had the water pump and timing belt replaced three times, problems with the rotors. The overall value has been good. It has 140,000 miles and still going. No car payments for many many years, put about 600 annually into repairs, but cheaper than a car payment. Fun to drive, still looks great. Super sound system died a few years ago.
Fun to drive, looks great, leather holds up well after 4 dogs and 2 babies in its lifetime. Lots of pep.
Fix valve seals to stop smoking. Use timing chain, not belt. Move cup holder so it does not block controls, Cup holder in back. Need bigger rotors.
Bought almost a year ago at 148000 mi. Was told that the engine was rebuilt at 100000 mi, and have only had one minor problem with ignition coil, other than that, good car, comfy and fun. Tries to be slow to be nice to the environment, but if you make it go fast, it will... very.
Quick, easy to drive, value.
Same as many others, I actually broke my cup holder because I couldn't figure it out. (It's trickier than it sounds!)
I bought my 1992 Mitsubishi Diamante in 2003 for $1,800. It had 130,000 miles on it, but still ran like a top. It now has 158,000 miles and still runs well. I only had one problem, the ECM which was about $400-$500 to fix. Otherwise it hasn't cost me a penny other than regular stuff that all cars need. It always starts and has never left me stranded. The styling is great, it looks very classy! This is a great car, worth buying!
Good looking, classy, and relatively quick.
I can't really complan about anything for what I paid.
I love this car. My dad let's me drive
it. However, the transmission had to
be rebuilt and the moon/sun roof
doesn't work anymore, even when I put
in new fuses. Also, the AC doesnt'
work, and the Heat/Fan comes on and off
whenever it wants...I think it's
possessed. But, the car gets good gas
mileage, even with 214,500 miles on it.
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.
