I own a 2002 Mitsubishi Diamante car, I bought this car in 02 since the 1st day I bought the car there was problems. The computer in the car went crazy my check engine light, ,cruise control, anti lock brake, tcl light all started flashing. I took the car back to the dealer & they replaced the computer but it didn't work they put 3 computers in since then, these lights are still on till this day. In 06 my trans blew I took the car back to the dealer they replaced my trans the car still doesn't ride right. My A/C turns on but nothing comes out sometimes. In the winter the inside of my car becomes a fog all over my windows and it wont stop fogging up. A smell is coming out of my vents like a coffee smell & im inhaling this smell whenever im in the car I have to go to a doctor to get checked out to see if I have health issues.my sun roof leaks when it rains, I took my car back to the dealer to have all these issues fixed but they never did I purchased the car in 02 the warranty lasted 02-05 B/C that is when my warranty expired. When I call they tell me I have to pay out of pocket B/C the warranty expired. This isn't fair to any Mitsubishi owner I shouldn't have to pay to have my car fixed now after the warranty when all the same problems have been recurring since I purchased the car and they never fixed it to begin with. I can understand if I was the only person with these problems I decided to search the internet to see if anyone else owned my make and model of my car to see if they had similar problems sure enough I came across a website called www.carsurvey.org/viewcomments_review_76426.html there's over 50 people with the same problems I have with my car.Mitsubishi should fix these problems and stand by there cars. I called corporate headquarters today & was told there's nothing they can do B/C its out of warranty.
