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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2002 Mitsubishi Diamante Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 282005

Diamante 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 47,890 miles


I purchased a used 2002 Mitsubishi Diamante in August 2005. The car had 45,000 miles on it. In October when I started to use the heater I could smell an unusual smell inside the car. In January of 2006 my brother rode in the car and told me the smell was anti-freeze. I went on the internet and instantly found out that this model car has a problem with the heater core O-rings failing. The smell in the car got real bad real quick and I had to have the leaking O-rings repaired. I would get sick from the smell and had no choice but to have it fixed. I brought the car to a Mitsubishi dealer and had the repair done for $650.the car had 48,000 miles on it when the repair was made. That is alot of money for problem that Mitsubishi should have corrected.
