2000 Mitsubishi Diamante LS 3.5 from North America
Great car, power, handling, looks
Heater Core gasket, (common problem)
I have owned this car for two years and I still really like it. It has plenty of power (V6), handles well, and is just plain fun to drive. It has a certain "X" factor, a bit of soul, which is unusual for a Japanese car. Great commuter. It's been totally reliable, except for the heater core gasket problem, which is pretty common. The resale value is pretty low, which is bad if you bought it new, but good if you buy it used. If you are looking for an Accord or Camry, try a Diamante, MUCH more car for less money.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
