This car wasn't bad...when I first bought it. I will agree that now that it has 225,000 miles on it, things will happen. However, this car is a nightmare. I recently found out that the engine in these cars has a recall. They burn oil and in 3,000 miles you will have nothing left. This goes along with the expensive parts I have had to replace. I would not suggest buying this car for the long term.
The layout of the interior of this car is one of the better things about it, along with the stereo...I love it.
Mitsubishi should have made things easier to get to inside the dash for necessary replacement or repair.
Overall this is not a bad car. However, the paint doesn't last, the seats are coming apart at the seams, and the automatic transmission is real troublesome. Also, this has to be one of the least aerodynamic cars I have ever driven - it gets about 18 mpg around town and about 20 on the highway.
It does have a straight six cylinder enginge that is quite fast.
This was a great car to drive when I
first got it, but soon thereafter
things began to fall apart. Be careful
when you have to replace the struts.
They run approximately $1000 apiece not

the air ride system. Speaking with
mechanics who have fixed my car, they
have mentioned similar problems with
other Diamantes including problems with
the transmission, air compressed
struts, air conditioning. I can't wait
to finally get rid of the car. I am
convinced that Diamante
means "headache" in Japanese.
Do away with all the gadgetry or

I believe this is one of the best
Mitsubishi sedans out there, or sedan
in general. My family all owns
Mitsubishi's and we all love them.
This car out performs Honda, Toyota,
Nissan and any other Japanese sedans
out there. Plus the quality is great,
and will last for another 100,000
miles. I have pushed it everyday since
I have got it and it still goes
Love the quality, leather, safety and
Little bit more stiffer suspension.
It will lose grip if going to fast.
