Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

2001 Mitsubishi Diamante Owner Comments

problem #4

Diamante 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 66,000 miles

Purchased 2001 Diamante in September 2004. Had approximately 66,000 miles when purchased and approximately 73,000 miles now. At the time I purchased the car, I noticed a maple syrup smell in the interior, but I didn't know that it was an indicator of a problem so I didn't mention it, I thought it might be a cleaner that was used in the car. In December 2004, brought car to Mitsubishi dealer where car was purchased for a routine oil change and tire rotation. Was informed that strong coolant smell in interior (maple syrup smell) was from a coolant leak caused by broken O-ring which I was told by the service manager "happens in almost all Diamantes". I told them that the smell was in my vehicle when I purchased it from the dealer in August and I believe they were aware of it at that time because they were able to quickly identify that same odor when I brought the car in for service. I have asked the dealership to pay for the repair since it is apparent they sold me a defective car. I have not resolved this issue yet with Mitsubishi so the repairs have not been made as of the date of this report. Currently the symptoms of this coolant leak are consistently and severely fogged up windows (all windows of the car) making visibility difficult. I am also quite concerned about the health consequences, including respiratory problems, I am facing from inhaling antifreeze fumes for the last 7 month which are only getting worse.

problem #1

Nov 102004

Diamante 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 58,000 miles
The defroster no longer works on this vehicle. Instead a stream of 'fog' is emitted through the ducts and the windows are clouded over. This required me to stop driving because I could not see through the window. There is a definite smell of coolant in the passenger vehicle and it is difficult to breathe.
