Engines are boat ankers
All mn tritons should have been recalled due to having such engine problems never buy one all ways serviced and looked after also leaking suspension which was checked out by a dealer they told me they were weaping not leaking I told him I would be back to see him when I needed a roadworthy certificate

Never buy a triton
Rust discovered in doors after weeks of delivery. Countless warranty repairs later engine terminated at 60,000kms. Extremely limited assistance from Mitsubishi despite factory servicing. 1st new car, never again Mitsubishi
Fuel economy is atrocious, double what the Mitsubishi suggest. Mitsubishi wont accept responsibility. Put a bull bar on the front and the entire vehicle shakes.
They are cheap for a reason, but they also depreciate quicker than any of their competitors.

Worst 4x4 to drive on market no suspension travel loud engine and road noise poor build and design
Work for a accessory company and have one company car and fit accessories to multiple dealers drive all brands and this is the worst on market carnt say anymore on how bad these drive on and off road

Awesome 4wd, haven't had an issue
Car has been great and can't fault it at all in the past 18 months of owning it. Definitely glad I saved the money by going a triton rather than a more expensive ute

Can’t complain great ute
I bought my MQ end of July 2017 new only problems I have had have been with dealers but I have that sorted now. Mitsubishi was very helpful in solving my issues. I have done 50k in two years trouble free motoring this vehicle is used in 4x4 to climb up to my house every day and has never been a problem. Averages 7.8 l/100 on hi way and has achieved 6.6 on trip from Sunshine Coast to Brisbane and around Brisbane as well not being driven hard but not sitting still either, 110 on hi way. I can,t complain and believe me I would if I had reason to do so.

A very good vehicle for a very decent price.
Purchased new in 2016 as a replacement for my MN Triton which I had a trouble free run with. MQ Exceed, has everything that I need, I tow my single axle 1900kg ATM 17.5 foot full size caravan without an issue and get around 400 to 500 k's per tank towing, 100kmh on roads other than Freeways and easy 110kmh on freeways. Have been over to Adelaide and up to QLD and all through NSW, including the outback several times without issue. Quiet on the road with AT tyres on the stock rims fitted, Carryboy canopy is the other accessory I have fitted, whi...ch is an excellent fit and top quality. Service and after sales help has been excellent, driver mirror replaced without fuss after the spring became weak from being blown in when passing B Doubles in the outback of NSW lots of times. Around town non towing fuel economy is 700k's per tank consistently. I always use premium diesel and drive it easy and fuel economy is fine. If you drive it hard everywhere then the fuel economy will be terrible, common sense to those whinging about poor fuel economy. AWD mode in the wet is excellent, I love leaving other dual cabs spinning and bogging down on the spot with traction control as I pull away smoothly in the wet. This ute is built to a price, but you get a lot for your money, particularly comfort and safety. Don't expect to get a vehicle capable of V6 diesel or 5 cylinder diesel power if you haven't paid the big bucks for it, yes turbo lag is annoying, but you drive to the limitations of the vehicle and it's not an issue. I'll be upgrading to the new shape next year without question, look what you get for your money with the new model, outstanding. My only complaint is that, as with my MN, the disks required machining at about 20,000ks, but that cost all of $100 at my mechanic, no issues since, done 45,000ks now. $15,000 to $20,000 cheaper than the competition, but not $15,000 to $20,000 worse than the competition, have a listen to auto expert reviews on Youtube, interesting point of view on the Triton vs the rest. Excellent for the money, not the best money can buy but the best value by far.
Very disappointed with this triton
3 call backs first 36k, radiator,power steering pump,indercators,42k clutch burn out had to go to v.cat , 110k injectors gone my cost to replace 3500 for the 4 of them .tow 17ft van 3 times a year and use for shopping weekly
Purchased in February 2014 at Car dealer shepparton for $34,000.00.
Very very good unit
Finish to exterior very good , rims ,tyres ,tray/tub look good and are very functional - access in and out of the vehicle is excellent with extra room and good access to the rear seats ..diesel economy is excellent, power is quite good.. dash set out and controls to the vehicle are excellent and easily operable ..finish to the interior is very very good , full leather , with good comfort and position of front and rear seats , excellent all round vision ... when in 4x4 mode I found it excellent with good ability ..every day road use is excellent......loading of the large tray/tub is very good ..adjustable headlights is excellent on country roads ....detractions are .. finish to seat bases after the leather are a bit tacky but usable ... lag in the turbo is a bit more than it should be with a slow reaction from stand still and trying to enter traffic.. no GPS ...roof sunglasses pocket is to small and subject to overheating in summer...small detractions yes but overall this vehicle is excellent for the cost.

You get what you pay for
I use this vehicle daily for business and after doing 15,000 kms I had the required service done, I was told the brakes needed to be machined & the diff needed 1 litre of oil added to it. I think this is very poor for a vehicle that is less than a year old.

MQ Triton best value, true 4WD Off Road Beast.
45,000km in 18 months and still loveing it. Comfort, drivability, handling & off road capabilities are outstanding. After test driving all makes/models in this class Triton just ticks all the boxes.

Keeps doing everything I ask of it...
120,000km of trouble free ownership since Oct 16. My commute is 160+km/day in varying traffic with fuel usage still ~9L/100km. And that's with 2" taller tyres than factory. I've taken it to Fraser Island twice, Straddie Island, and recently to Cape York including the full Old Telegraph Track. With only a snorkel and taller All-Terrain tyres (no bullbar or winch), the ute embarassed a lot of heavily modified 4WD's by never getting stuck once or requiring recovery. Yes, NVH is a little harsher than competitors and it's built to a price, but I cou...ldn't justify the extra $20K for a marginal improvement. I'll be driving ~8,000km on a Broome road trip via the desert in 2020 and I have no concerns about its reliability, economy or capability. It has been excellent so far and still looks great in metallic blue.

At July 2019, 94 000Kms and brought new as a runout model 2015. Towed 2.4 tonne caravan for 30 000 of these kms. At 85, 000 ISH noticed power loss issues that turned out to be a badly carboned inlet manifold and turbo as well. Mechanic described engine at time as having emphysema. Extremely poor fuel economy as well.
Also issues with clutch, but have lived with issue for 50 000 kms (started to overheat on a moderate but extended climb with the caravan) and needs to be replaced very soon.
Disappointed with hill starting while towing carav...

Great car would never be without my ute.
Bought My 3.5Lt Petrol Triton in 2007 new from the manufacturer (worked for them from 1971-2008) and never has any major problems apart from the paint, had to get the bonnet and wheel arch flares repainted, done just over 100,0000 and will be going in for a new timing chain. I have the car service on time and the car has never let me down Had to replace the Manifold it got a small crack in it replaced it with extractors which improved the performance. overall very happy with the car preforms well off road and tows my van without any problems.

I have owned my 2010 triton for the last 5 years. Purchased with 80,000 on it, It now has 290,000. The only things I have replaced are an air flow sensor common problem and replaced at 200,000 and shockys at 240,000. I service every 5000 and would highly recommend a triton to anyone. I tow a trailer regularly and drive long ks daily and the ute handles everything I have thrown at it.

Worst fuel economy ever..
I bought my MQ after owning an old Pajero for many years. The label on the window read 7.3l/100km. Now I k is I will never get that but I'm using 100% more than that on the freeway. And the dealer wont help. Don't by one they are crap...
Great car but poor audio
Car audio keeps dropping in and out of Bluetooth seriously want to change systems but not sure of audio screen size and what can be compatible as I’m not feeling the system that is stock standard and have had numerous reports of this same issue

Good all rounder
09 MN .I brought my ute new and have have done 193000 km .I have had an injector failure at 17000 but was replaced by dealer.i have had a 3rd gear problem at 100000 .again sorted by the dealer.it is very comfortable as a daily driver and a great weekend 4wd.i have after market shocks and wheels ,bullbar ,canopy was originally an Mitsubishi one but it warped on the sides and was replaced by the dealer with a ARB model.overall it is solid and reliable now after some teething problems being the new 2.5motor in 09.i have fitted a catch can and had ...the sludge cleaned out internally.i would not buy a new one as they are plastic all over and not as tough as the old ones.with regular services and a little mechanical sympathy it will last me another 10 years i hope.i tow regularly a tandem trailer and it pulls very well now I have fitted a throttle controller. Good luck.

Cheap for a reason.
Bought 2016 dual cab manual brand new $35k (with extras) and with in 40000km:
-Drivers side outside door handle fell off. Literally fell off. Dealer said it had just been shaken loose!
-Rear suspension bushes wore out after 20000kms.
-Stereo only connects to my ipod sometimes and only after approx 3 minutes.
-Gutless as buggery. Overtaking anything is scary as hell.
-Rides like youre an epileptic in a washing machine.
-Traction control takes years to kick in.
Although i dont consider $35k as cheap,it is compared to the other manufactures.
Even so, dont buy these Thailand made, plastic, poorly designed things.

Questions & Answers
hi everyone from Rod,i have a 2017 mitsubishi triton 4x4, yesterday i damaged the abs wiring connectors above the rear diff! I've now repaired them but have several warning lights now on the dash! also it won't engage L4! any help would be greatly appreciated! regards Rod
I own a 1998 Mitsubishi Triton GLS (4x4) MK V6 petrol. Just recently I have left my lights on and ruined/shortened my battery life. Turns out that the once functioning "headlights are on chime" stopped working. I was unaware of this and after calling the NRMA to get me going again I then replaced the battery as it was failing. Upon replacing the battery I then noticed that as I turned of the engine the chime was not working. I made my wife aware of this although yesterday she went to the underground carpark at Coles and left the lights on when she got home. Same thing happened, a completely flat new battery.
Can someone please tell me where this thing is located or if it is just a fuse, or how to replace it?
I can only see a fusebox near the battery, are there any other fuse I can check or relays for that matter?
Any input would be appreciated
The hold light on my 97 mk triton is on can someone please tell me what it does and how to turn it off please
