1998 Mitsubishi Diamante ES 4dr Sedan


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.

Best Features

Front seat comfort, driving pleasure/pick-up. Also like the trunk size, really bigger than it looks.

Worst Features

Interior lighting, like others have said; and the drink holders - you can't use them at the same time you have your ashtray open/use your lighter receptacle. That was the only thing that really irritated me about this car. I couldn't plug anything into the lighter & hold a drink at the same time.
