Summary:

You get what you pay for

Faults:

I bought a 01 Diamante in 04 with 40,000 miles.

Replaced the heater core at 57,438, got it from a Mitsubishi service center for 300, had it put in for 250..

Trans went at 80,000, and I mean 80g, did all the tune ups and maintenance to keep it running good, then had to replace the park/neutral safety switch...

General Comments:

They always had a bad rep, and I know why I won’t talk about the 98 Eclipse.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

This review came from the US, not Australia or NZ. The car however was built in Australia.

At that low kays I would think of how hard you are on the car. And an American review should not be likened to OZ.
