Just bought a 1998 Diamante for 2,700, after getting new tires and fixing a bad front brake caliper it rides nice.
I am still working on what I think is an electrical problem.
The doors unlock on their own at random and the car can be on or off.
Also,the engine idle miss fire still have not figured out.
Check engine light is not on. Runs great but still need to figure out these problems befor I say its a good car.

I've had this Diamante since early 2002. I love its look, the way it (used to) drive, and the driver comfort. As the years went on & I put more miles on it, of course, more went wrong with it. It's down right now, needing its third alternator. It has over 197,000 miles on it, though, and overall, I'm pleased with its life performance. It has a power steering problem (seems like fluid leak) that neither of my mechanics can fix. In the last 3 months, the steering has also become a bit less reliable - you have to turn the wheel more if you round a curve at over 35 mph.
