"This is my 3rd Diamante and my last. Why? Well They don't make them any more. If they did I would buy another when this wears out. But at 99K miles it has many years left. These have a good V6 and if you don't do your own maintenance it can be expensive. For instance to change the back plugs you need to partially remove the intake manifold. But the plugs last 50K miles. I can do it in 1/2 hour. Only other problem is the water leak which is fixed for 3 hours work and a $1.25 O ring. Once fixed there are no other problems with this car. They drive nice, Plenty of power. Quiet and has features found only in the posh luxury autos and then only at extra cost. duel power seats, ski slots, great radio, heated seats, sensing intermittent wipers, etc. I own two and probably won't sell either because they are hard to find. I'd rather drive this than a 750 or 525. Seems built better than both."

"Bought new, and except for the usual 'major' issues due to age (trans re-build, timing belt, etc) has been a joy to own. Heavy which is great for snow, yet responsive enough to make driving - even long trips - easy and enjoyable."

"Vehicle is in great condition--have only had to replace tires and battery. Have regular oil changes. Low mileage since we only drive car around town or to towns close by. I'd give this car to my grandkids but it's a 4-door and it's older plus they are all back east 2500+ miles."

"Have driven this car all over the country from California to Colorado and Ohio with high mileage and never had a break down. Car has only required minor repairs (some owner's fault and some wear and tear). Car is extrememly reliable and has plenty of power with a V6. Still offers decent gas mileaage on the highway. This was my first car and I still own it 7 years later. I have no desire for a new car as this one runs perfectly. Has great internal design as the engine and transmission have needed no repair. Only maintenance repairs for this car have been for the steering shaft and muffler. You dont see many of these on the roads but they are a hidden gem."

"Oh my I've owned this car for 12 years , longer than I've ever owned any vechicle. When I brought it, I wasn't even a good driver, and was prone to accidents. I was so in ahh of my beautiful new car, I only had 1 accident in the 12 years I drove it and that one wasn't my fault. It only had 75 miles on it when I brought in. Never used the manufacturer warranty, nothing ever went wrong until it turned about 8 years old. I would buy another one if it were possible and I could afford it. I would not buy the extended warantty again cause that was just a great big waste of money."
