Hopefully you have solved the problem, but in case you haven't. I would check the windshield if you had it replace. Usually there will be a small leak. The way to check for it is to turn up the radio inside, shut all the doors and windows and take a short piece of garden hose, put one end by your ear and go around the windshield frame. Where the sound gets louder is where you have a leak, Have the company thar installed your windshield re-seal it and that should eliminate the fogging. Hope this helps.

From what you described it is the heater core, and the replacement cost are in the correct range also.

I have a 1999 Diamante doing exactly what was described in Stemog's posting a couple of years ago. Do you think the parts are the same for mine (1999)? If so can you post the OEM part numbers you changed, so I can get this problem taken care of real soon. Thanks.
#1452 of 1497 Wind Noise
Jun 18, 2008 (5:21 am)
I have a 2002 VRX with 38K, which I bought two and a half years ago, when it had only 6k on it-it had been sitting in dealerships and auctions for awhile. Only issue is constant wind noise from rear drivers window. Window rolls up properly and rubber looks good. Cannot figure out how to stop noise. Tried a couple of auto part places to see if I can get something to seal it better, to no avail. Any ideas?
Car is great, only issue has been some brake grinding when cold.
Gas mileage on recent trip was 29 and I get 19-20 in city. Only wish is that ride was a little softer. Had a 2001 LS that was totaled prior to this one.

I just purchased a 2000 Diamante. I love the car, but it came without an owners manual. I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to get the owners manual in order to keep up with all scheduled maintenance.
I'm worried because i dont have the car's maintenance records and i want to head off any problems i may have in the future or fix what may have not been done.

I just purchased a 03 Diamante. I already have a 97 and love it. The 03 didn't have an owners manual with it. There is a toggle switch on the dash with TCL on it. Can anyone tell me what this switch is for?

TCL stands for traction control. You can order the manual from a Mitsu dealer or ebay.

This is a bit late-
I had the same problem with a 2002 Diamante LS - I bought it new and within 3 months a rock went through the window.
Window was replaced with new rubber wind noise was very loud at highway speed- rubber was replaced. Finally after a real window professional noted that adjustment that tilt window are minimal and window needs to be set in perfectly as this is a frameless window. Also there has been defective factory replacement windows.
Yours might have had a replacement window while setting at the lot
Good luck p
#1457 of 1497 Use of 'regular' gas in Diamantes
Aug 29, 2008 (9:17 pm)
My '97 is supposed to use 'premium' gas. Snce the price of fuel has skyrocketed I have been using 'regular' gas. This works fine. There is no pinging since the 'knock sensor' sets the ignition to not allow this. I have run the D at the local 1/8 mile dragstrip with 'regular' gas: 70.05 MPH.
After using 'premium' for several weeks (to allow the computer to reset) I ran again: 70.17 MPH!!
It's OK to use 'regular', just slight loss of power!!
