My v-rx rocks

Vehicle: 2003 Mitsubishi Diamante VR-X 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I have 137K on mine and all I've had to replace is brakes and tires. (Bridgestone Insignia s-200's are a great replacement for the Goodyears it came with improves ride greatly)Plenty of power and if you use synthetic oil you can get 22mpg in town and better on the hwy. Since switching to synthetic oil it gets 22mpg consistently in town weather I lead foot it or drive like Grandma. This is the perfect blend between sports car and luxury car. Luxury usually sacrifices a bit of style and pep which this has both, and sports cars usually sacrifice smooth ride which this has too.This is the closest thing you can get to a BMW or a Mercedes for 30 grand. Camry and Accord feel cheap by comparison.

Vehicle: 2003 Mitsubishi Diamante VR-X 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I love the way this car handles and the power it has when needed. It still looks better than most cars on the road today. If I had to do it again I would still buy it. The mileage on the hwy is a respectible 22 mpg's...The only downfall is in the city where it drops to about 12 mpg's.

My 2003 Mitsubishi Diamante VR-X has been an excellent vehicle. I have had no reliability problems with it whatsover. I've only had to change the oil. My only complaint is that it could have more leg room for tall drivers (I am 6 ft 3 in.).

Vehicle: 2003 Mitsubishi Diamante VR-X 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

My 2003 Mitsubishi Diamante VR-X has been outstanding in every category. I immediately put on aftermarket wheels and tires. Along with the optional VR-X package, I have one of the best looking and running cars on the road. The Infinity stereo system is awesome with an amp. There are several ways to improve the engine performance in this car. Just do a little homework. It is really a shame that Mitsubishi discontinued the Diamante. What does that say about them when they discontinue their flagship model in search of something geared toward the younger buyer. I am a proud owner and will keep my Diamante for a very long time. I plan to enter it in some car shows since it will be in a class by itself. It is a 10 out of 10 in my book.

Vehicle: 2003 Mitsubishi Diamante VR-X 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I had a Cadillac Catera Sport previously and the VR-X is a better vehicle. The engine is smooth and powerful and it handles great for a front drive. No body roll on curves but still has good ride. Only complaint, I think the steering is a little too light.

This car is a nice for an entry luxuary car but it still falls far behind other competitors. ThE BASE PRICE OF THE CAR SHOULD BE EXTREMELY LOWER BECAUSE THE RESALE VALUE IS EXTREMELY POOR!
