Review of the 2001 Mitsubishi Diamante

  • A diamond best left in the rough.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Lots of standard equipment, attractive styling, available traction control, great sound system.

  • Cons

    Stereo control panel is cluttered with buttons, poor-shifting transmission, less-than-acceptable construction.

  • What's New for 2001

    This Mitsubishi model doesn't change much from last year, but product planners add tether anchors for child seats, foglights on the LS and new seat fabric and wheel cover for the ES. Greenies can rest easy knowing that it meets LEV standards for all states.

Expensive to fix

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Mitsubishi Diamante LS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

When I first purchased this car it ran great. Currently have about 90,000 miles on it and I am about done throwing money into this thing. I have some of the same complaints as others; wind noise, not a very smooth ride, and most of all expensive to fix repairs. Inside door handle broke, I can only get from the factory they want over $200 for a piece of plastic. Back end has begun to sway. I have had over $600 put into it plus new tires and problem still isn't fixed. Probably going to need new shocks soon, most likely will get rid of it by then.




Purchased new... still a great

Vehicle: 2001 Mitsubishi Diamante LS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I purchased a brand new 2001 Diamante LS and have had zero problems with this car. I have driven it everyday (city+highway) and the quality has been simply outstanding... Tires-Oil-Gas only. Mitsubishi built this great car to last many years.




Good car for money, but...

Vehicle: 2001 Mitsubishi Diamante LS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

Really liked the car when I purchased it with only 24,000 miles in 2004. By the time it had 40k miles it had the very common heater core leak... by the time it had 50k miles rear/driver side abs speed sensor failed so abs brakes are non-functional since then, neither is the traction control... both ABS and TCL light stay on all the time now. By 55k egr solenoid failed, not too costly to replace if you do it yourself. By 60k miles the rear springs are worn out, with 3 passengers in the rear the rear bottoms out, replaced shocks which didn't help at all. By 80k antenna motor failed. Bottom line, even though I like the car I wouldn't buy a Mitsubishi again, with the other options.




Why did they quit making

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Mitsubishi Diamante LS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

This car replaced a 1997 Diamante. Both are great driving cars. Comfortable ride and tracking, excellent build quality and fuel economy. This car has 120,000 miles now and at about 100,000 miles had to replace heater core. No other maintenance problems. Does not use oil or have any leaks.




Great car

I have had this car for six years and plan to keep for six more. It was a great purchase.

I really only have had a few problems with my 2001 Mitsubishi Diamante LS. The transmission is slow to react to my lead foot sometimes. I had a Mitsubishi Eclipse with an auto transmision that was much better. Also, tthis car should be rear wheel drive with so much horsepower and torque!
