I've got a 2000 Diamante LS here in the Northeast USA. I'm in the process on purchasing another vehicle (another Mitsu - an Outlander) and was wondering what the best thing to do with the old Diamante would be. It's been a reliable car, but has 153k on it. It probably needs new shocks, the valve cover leaks some oil, and I've got a code for a bad O2 sensor that I figured I'd get to eventually, and the ABS light's been on for years. Beyond that, the engine and power train have been great. Question is, would this car be worth purchasing as a parts car for someone with another Mitsu? With the price of parts and keeping these older D's running, it would seem that it should be worth $1500 -$2000 that way vs trading it in, which would probably only bring $500-$100. I love the car, need something with more clearance in my new job.
