The quality of the car is exceptional that it has been in good condition for almost 17 years now that my family has owned the car. There are a couple of things that I like such as the ample trunk space, and it can hold up to 15 gallons of gas in its tank. This typically last me about 1.5 years before I need to refill the car with gas. A couple dislikes of the car that I have include the window gets stuck and I can no longer adjust the side view mirrors with the control mechanisms. Fortunately, the car has had little major failures but it did have a starter failure once and a transmission failure once in its 17 years of use.
Story
This was a car that was used to teach many people to drive in my family and in my neighborhood. Many friends learned how to drive in this car, so it holds a tradition to teach new drivers about the safety of the road and to prepare them for their drivers license exam.
Pros
Some positive things I like about the car is its space to openly accommodate five individuals as well as its ample trunk space. In addition, there is a small compartment available in the middle back seat where I can place small materials such as paper towels or snacks in the car. There are multiple cup holders - six in total (not including one additional small holder on each side of the front doors).
Cons
Some cons of the car involve that the battery tends not too last that long. I typically need to change the battery every two years. The car windows will struggle with its mechanisms so you have to press the buttons multiple time before the windows move up or down. In addition, the interior is a cloth interior, which has started to come off the edges on the ceiling, exposing the interior mesh like material.

2002 Mitsubishi Diamante - Happy, satisfied

I am very pleased with my Diamante. It provides a smooth and comfortable ride while feeling like a safe and sturdy car as well. The gas mileage is great for luxury style car and will absolutely save you money in the long run. Overall I would recommend this car to anyone looking for a quality mid size sedan.
Story
I've only had this car for about 3 months so no great stories yet.
Pros
Some of my favorite features of this car include the roomy interior and overall quality of the engine. The engine makes no audible noise and provides the car with great acceleration speed. I'm 6'2 so having head room in a car is important for me, and this car delivers that. A digital climate control display and an excellent stereo system both add to the luxury feel of this car while excellent brakes and smooth power steering further add to the practicality of the vehicle.
Cons
One minor problem with the car is that the heating/air conditioning vents that are supposed to point towards your upper body don't seem to push enough air out. The fact that this small issue is all I can think of speaks to the quality of this vehicle.

2002 Mitsubishi Diamante - This has been a great, reliable car for 14 years.

This has been a reliable and comfortable car to drive for the last 14 years. I have always had compliments on the car's looks, and the stylish interior and exterior have held up well.
Story
Every time I parked the car in my workplace parking lot when I first got it, I had a comment about how good-looking the car was, how unique it looked and the beautiful paint color.
Pros
The car is very stylish and comfortable. It is often noticed by other drivers because of its originality and sporty look. I've driven it for 150,000+ miles and it still drives and handles well. The leather interior is still as beautiful as when new.
Cons
The car had a defective heater core that had to be replaced twice when the car was fairly new, I found out later that this was a flaw in all of the Mitsubishi Diamantes.
