2000 Mitsubishi Diamante ES 4dr Sedan


I purchased my 2000 Mitsubishi Diamante last August for two main reasons, its price and features. I couldn't find a similarly equipped toyota Camry or Honda Accord for my $9,500 budget. A few months later, the heater core O-ring failed and coolant started leaking into the vent system. The fix was costly, about $1,100 but the car has been running without a problem since. The Diamante has lots of power under the hood, the acceleration is good but the transmission gets confused sometimes i.e. downshift may not happen immediately when you need a quick boast. The interior is quiet and its ride quality is somewhere between good and excellent. The Diamante is clearly more biased towards comfort and doesn't handle as well as my previous Mazda Millenia

Best Features

Its attractive styling both - interior and exterior, powerful engine, low price tag, comfortable and quiet ride, spacious cabin and trunk, and nice LCD display for environment controls.

Worst Features

Improve the gas mileage and transmission performance, change the layout of the instrument guage cluster (it looks so 70's right now), make the dash controls more egronomic.
