As a student, I inherited this car, which has surpassed my expectations. The car is comfortable, and has so many options, even more than most new cars. It handles well on the highway at high speeds, the engine is slow but keeps up with traffic and is reliable except when the water pump failed. It has a lot of space and looks decent (small factory spoiler and sporty alloy wheels) The transmission shifts roughly when taking off from a stop but on the highway the car is quieter and smoother that a lot of other cars I have been in. Also mine is one of the few cars from the early 90's to have the optional ABS.
auto climate control, ABS, alloy wheels, audio system, center console, ok gas mileage, lots of buttons
No roof racks, rough transmission (maybe its the high mileage 170k)
I bought the car used with 118K on it.
I paid 2,500 dollars. I was preparing
to go cross country, from DC to
Seattle, and needed a car that coudl
carry all of my stuff. The Diamante
Wagon seemed to fit the bill. It was
fantastic all teh way over the Rockies
and beyond. I have 131K on her now and
not a lick of trouble.
I like the V6, the transmission choices
[econo/sport/overdrive]. It has been
reliable. Burns no oil at this point.
Doesnt look wimpy like most wagons.
Paint has help up OK. Interior has held
Struts need to be replaced. It aint
happenin' captain. 600 bucks? Ha. Thats
