2002 Mitsubishi Diamante LS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I have always loved the look of this car and I really fell in love with the 0% financing. This car is right on the edge of being something really special with a few minor refinements. Overall, the car is a solid contender in the introductory luxury car market. With a some engineering and design checnges in the future it could rule its class!!!


Best Features

Unique exterior design that gets tons of looks. Audio system is impressive, but lacks a standard 6-CD changer, which I would expect from a $30k car. Handles fantastic in the ice and snow of a Colorado winter (blowing by the rear-wheel drive BMW's). Massive trunk. Quiet ride.


Worst Features

Side Impact Airbags, Head-Curtain Airbags, Minimum of an additional 20- horsepower, 5-speed shiftable automatic transmission, optional navigation system, relocate steering- wheel audio controls, auto-dimming rearview mirror, compass, a little less body role in turns.

2002 Mitsubishi Diamante LS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is a quiet, smooth driving, Zippy car. The high torque engine is fantastic. Transmission shifts very smoothly downshifting when you need it and acceleration is great ! The car is loaded with the features you use and the automatic climate control is great ! The stereo sounds fantastic and gets rave reviews by every passenger that gets a ride.


Best Features

Engine, transmission, and comfort features....Auto climate control, seating, sound system.


Worst Features

Although I would rarely use it, fold down rear seats for extended trunk space. Although Every car I have seen this feature sacrifices rear seat comfort. I prefer having the rear seat comfort. The trunk space is really more than enough.

2002 Mitsubishi Diamante VR-X 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I purchased this car in November after first test driving it back in August. I had two Gallants previously, a 1996 and a 1999, both four cylinder versions. I saw the VR-X off at a distance back in August and knew that I wanted to take a closer look. It's a great looking car! When I first test drove it, I realized that it was simply on a different plane when compared to the Gallants. It's fast, tight, and super cool-looking on the inside.


Best Features

Unique look, leather seats, red night lighting, good power, and I have not seen another VR-X on the road! I really would recommend giving it a test drive and reading other consumer reviews as well.


Worst Features

I don't particularly like the tires that came with it. Nor do I like the horn, which sounds like it should belong on a scooter.

2002 Mitsubishi Diamante VR-X 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is a great car for the price. Its roomy, has good performance, and looks good. I have over 5K miles and no problems. Lots of standard features leather, 10 way power driver 8 way power passenger seats, a great traction control system, and good brakes (a must have).


Best Features

The smooth engine, sport tuned suspension on my VRX, the nice soft touch classy materials used on the interior.


Worst Features

More features like a trip computer especially for a car of this price range, maybe an optional navigation system and stability system, a 17 inch wheel package with the VRX sport package. More horse power in VRX for true sport sedan.
