2002 Mitsubishi Diamante LS from North America
Not too bad, but sounds like a lot of the same problems everyone else has
Heater core went out at 45,000 miles.
Antenna stopped going up and down at 60,000 miles.
Gas gauge stopped working at 65,000 miles.
Check engine light comes on due to the gas cap not being on tight (loosens up when it is hot outside).
Steering wheel vibrates... makes my hands numb when driving.
Car doesn't turn over until several tries of reinstalling the key to start.
Like all owners of Diamante's, I too have had to replace the heater core when I first got my 2002 Diamante LS in 2005. Everything went well until about a year ago when my antenna stopped going up and down, and made a grinding noise, and my gas gauge stopped working.
Then a few months later... my radio stopped working. I can do without a gas gauge since I know what I get per tank for miles and I am getting used to the silence.
NOW... my car won't turn over. I turn the key... nothing. I take the key out several times.. then after a few tries it will start like nothing was wrong. I have been happy with my Diamante and love my car, but I think it is time for me to fork out the bill to get it fixed or get cash for clunkers.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
