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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Great pick-up. Exterior looks great. Stock sound system is excellent.


Suggested Improvements

Inside interior is cheap for what you expect for a luxury car. Ceiling is draping. Pleather on doors rips easily. Door handles interior/exterior are both becoming loose. EXPENSIVE to repair. Not only major parts but any parts.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

The body style is clean and a head turner. Smooth driving, excellent climate controls and a quality sound system.


Suggested Improvements

None

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Used to be a good smooth ride, esp. for road trips until coil springs wore out, feels like a boat on water now. Been in two accidents... this car can take hits very well!!! Not much damage. Good size trunk. Plenty of leg room for driver and passengers. Comfy. Great Infinity speakers.


Suggested Improvements

Wind noise from passenger windows (even when seals are in good condition), scheduled maintenance is very expensive, esp. when compared to its peers. Heater core, epic fail... Coil spring fatigue, abs speed sensor - known issue yet no recall! Antenna motor failed.

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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

The ride, handling and tracking. Usually drive with one finger on wheel. Will consistently get 26-27 MPG at 80 mph with cruise on.


Suggested Improvements

Replace the steering wheel adjustment

Review

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


Favorite Features

The great looks and excellent stereo.


Suggested Improvements

Frames around the door windows would give a much more solid sound when shutting the door.
