Fuel cap issues
The car itself is great...but the fuel flap door will not open. It has taken 6 months already for them to order the part which is still another two weeks away. So I have a brand new car that I can’t put fuel into without first going to the dealer to have them open it for me. The 7 year warranty is no help with this apparently because the car goes, but still can’t leave town or head away on holidays in the new car in case it runs out of fuel.

I have not made up my Mind, Good, Bade ore indifferent
I have purchased a Triton 4x4 in Dec 2018 at a Dealer in Adelaide 2014 Model. 150000km after 3weeks I noticed that the car was smoking like it was on Fire. Under warranty there fixed Timing belt, Ballance shaft? Injectors and stopped smoking without ever telling me what caused the smoking. now I have driven the car 20000km towing my Caravan 18' and have spend the last 4 Days in a Caravan Park while the local Mitsibushi dealer has attempted to fix my new problem. Without warning the Cargos into crawling mode the Dashboard showing the Motor Mana...gement and Traction Control sign. There fixed it yesterday because of excess Carbon built up in the Manifold? $629.00 later I have driven the Car 129km and the same thing happened again Motor Management and Traction Control sign-on in crawling mode 170km in the Bush. The car is now back at the same dealer and there have got no idea what is causing the problem.

Such a beauty!
Just bought our GLS Premium 4x4 yesterday. Such a beauty to drive! This is our first 4x4 and we find it easy to park with the help of 360deg camera. We'll be using it in 2weeks for our camping trip to Karijini so we're a bit excited.

Nothing Can Frighten a Triton is absolutely correct
Purchased a New 2019 Mitsubishi Triton MR - GLS Premium and what a fabulous vehicle.
The GLS Premium has the heated seats and 360degree camera system which have proven to be worth having. I'm new to 4x4 driving and after one (1) parking practise I can park the Triton between two other 4x4s with absolute ease. I like the fact that technology helps us, some people google search rather than use a book or written reference and I reverse park using the Triton's 360degree camera system, it's as easy comparison as that.
Purchased from JMC Mitsubis...hi in Burnie Tasmania and the only reason I say this is because our salesman, Tim was fantastic. His product knowledge was excellent, he did more listening than talking and he was very competitive. I love the HUGE rear cargo area and the very comfortable interior. We have the heated leather seats and on these very cold and frost or just damn cold Tasmanian mornings, the heated front seats have been just brilliant. The seats heat up quickly so I'm still warm whilst waiting for the heat from the car heater to kick in. We use the triton as my daily driver and a soon to be tow vehicle for a small boat. We are also planning future camping trips with the Triton and haver installed Prorack roof racks which were again, super easy to install given the Triton's easy to use 'fixed roof rack' mounts on the roof. The Triton also came with the massive 7-year warranty and 3 years capped price servicing aat $299 a year (or 15000km) which every occurs first.
Been fantastic !
Purchased Dec 2018 with 150g km for 17g at Dealer. Now have 185g km not one single problem. Used to get 725 km until fuel light went on, fitted light bar and spot light on tub roof bar and it dropped to 680km When I fill up only takes 60 litres though. A great car to get around, very jumpy on the road over bumps, but very comfortable. My wife finds the passenger front seat uncomfortable for her back on long drives. Nothing has fallen off or stopped working. I am 54 and owned a lot of cars, this is a favourite for just loping along and chucking stuff in the back. I service it every 10g km through mechanic as I do all my cars. Hope this helps anybody looking at buying one. Cheers !

Fantastic value - way better than competing dual cab utes
My Triton cost me $15k less than the equivalent market leader. It drives very well loaded and unloaded although the drive by wire makes it a bit laggy on take off.
That lag can be a problem when you are trying to dart across a T intersection or merge quickly into a roundabout from a standing start.
Huge array of safety features not found on other makes.
Comfortable, nicely laid out interior.
Impossible to set a useful volume level for incoming calls via Apple Car Play but otherwise ok system.
Purchased in June 2019.
Great truck. Have completed 73000km with it. I Use the Ute on gravel roads over mountain passes all the time in NZ. I am using Four wheel drive daily. Also tow my 1.7ton digger over same roads. It’s been awesome. No real dramas apart from a sticky turbo waste gate. Seems to have fixed itself

The biggest heap of junk you'll ever buy
We bought a Mitsubishi Triton only to be totally disappointed. It spent 91 days in its 1st year in Mitsubishi have multiple things fixed including a blown engine at 49000 km. The list is endless of problems it has had over the years. More recently it blew the new engine up so it has gone through 2 motors in only 170000 km. I would never recommend a Mitsubishi to anyone and have just forked out to but a new Isuzu which we certainly didn't plan after only 7 years owning the Triton. It was meant to last at least double that time but spent most of it on the back of a tow truck. It was always log book serviced etc.
Purchased in February 2013 for A$35,000.00.
So happy with purchase
Recently purchased our first ever new car and chose a Mitsubishi Triton. What a surprise package. Know why it made ute of the year. Great looking ute. Very comfortable drive. So many safety features and automatic functions. It’s fantastic. Very easy to use giving you hands free communication.
Has been a great ute
This Ute has been totally reliable for the 7 years of ownership. The only small issue was the usual turbo lag on take off (Which you get used to) and some rust in the roof, which Mitsubishi rectified for me. Otherwise very happy with the way it performed on road and off-road - so much that I bought a new MR 2020 Triton. Hope it’s as reliable!
Warranty not worth paper its written on
Have done 15,000ks (6 months) on my $40k brand new car and the brakes squeak every time they are applied. Even though it clearly states brakes and linings are covered by a 20,000k 12 month warranty, Mitsubishi have refused to fix them (head office) not just the dealer. Apparently buying a new car and driving with squeaking brakes isn’t a major failure. Now they expect me to pay to have them fixed! Hate to think the battles I’ll have in future when any other warranty issues arise.
Wouldn’t buy another Mitsubishi ever again.
Purchased in October 2019 for A$40,000.00.
Have had some issues.
Cracked head beyond repair @ 63000ks
Replaced under warranty.
The day after the car was returned to me the glow plugs failed.
Replaced under warranty.
I like the ute but the problems i have had hasn't given me much faith in the build.
Things like this shouldn't happen at 60,000ks.
Throttle response and turbo lag is terrible but can be fixed with a throttle controller.
Stock suspension is terrible needs to be replaced.

Great ute for the price
I bought a 2018 MQ GLX+ Triton dual cab 4x4 on runout, it honestly wasn't my first choice ute at the time but my finances meant it was the only choice.
Now I've done 50 000km in I couldn't be happier, the engine and gearbox are solid and it goes just fine four wheel driving, nothing heavy yet but I have built serious cars in the past and driven crazy tracks, this car feels pretty good.
It was cheap
It's as comfortable as most cars
Small turning circle due to short wheel base
The small engine doesn't seem to lack power as it's figures sugg...

BEST UTE EVER! TRY ME!
Totally effortless offroad. Very fuel efficient. Can keep up with anything offroad with ease. Plenty of aftermarket support. The Triton community is very welcoming if you're wanting to join. Cheers.

Love the Triton
Triton was the best rated and best price. I chose the black( wrong choice) but the car is extremely comfortable and reliable with 7 year warranty and fixed price service
Good light weight workhorse
Bought my MQ 2.4 turbo diesel 6 speed about 4.5 years ago. Now done 191000 km to date . Cracked exhaust manifold at 67000 km and replaced under warranty. Replaced the rear leaf springs with constant rate 300 kg springs just recently to carry loads more easily due to my work and for towing. Apart from being a bit under powered it drives as I expect it should. Just started jumping out of 3rd gear but if I hold it in it's fine but I can put up with this as it is always working under load in all gears except 6th gear which I rarely use as it's too ...high. I've seen a low 5.5 l/100km but this would stress the gearbox to keep this up so I just drive it like a petrol and use the appropriate gears to get going. I've washed it about 3 times and wiped out the interior occasionally and apart from wear and tear on the seats then all is fine with no sign of rust. Priced reasonable as well . I'd get another one but in this case I'll just replace the parts as they fail as it's a good work vehicle.

Overhearing, dealer takes over 5weeks to repair
Bought a second hand 2012 mn triton in December 2019, coolant down dealer said just replaced overflow bottle topped up and away I went. Two days later no coolant, dealer water pump gone, replaced. Had vehicle for about two weeks, coolant down and noticed between engine and gear box. Back to dealer, Mitsubishi dealer check and said head in stress level. Back to dealer bought triton from. Sent head away to be checked and surface ground. Head now back on vehicle, this has taken over four weeks to get to this stage. Air bag light on when vehicle we...nt for head repair. Now they scan it and Curtin side air bag fault. This could have been sorted out earlier while head was away for repair(scan for fault). We are now in the fifth week without vehicle. I don’t know whether to keep or try and sell as I am reading other posts and it seems I could encounter more issue. Stat warranty is only three months and vehicle has been in workshop for most of this. Believed the Triton was a reliable vehicle, guess not. Triton had done 140000 klms. Snorkel noisey and vibrates, knock in steering column. Have not yet got to really try out vehicle. Going to tow a 18ft fibreglass boat

A reliable and effective Ute
Bought with 40K on the clock and no mods beyond canopy, tow and bull bars. We use Ute to tow a <2 T van on regular country runs, including gravel/sand, and daily use in city commutes. We have added long range tank, snorkel, window tint, roof bars, medium OME front and rear shocks, medium OME front coils, heavy duty Lovell rear leaf springs, rest of vehicle is stock. Ute tows well under load, up hill take off is slow but can’t complain given size of engine and manual gearbox. Under warranty Mitsubishi did repair gearbox cogs at 60K for excessive...wear, and elec wiring sub harness at 150K. We have replaced clutch and radiator. Now with 260K on the clock and continued regular book servicing, including interim the Ute cannot be faulted. Very happy with local dealer and Mitsubishi for warranty items. Have owned a range of other 4x4 brands and am surprised how well this Ute is going, in my view it is as reliable as my old Series 80 1HZ.
Great value for money
I've set the vehicle up as a tourer and it's been going great. With a good fuel economy and soild performance. I haven't towed anything so can't comment on that but I have loaded it up with weight and it maintains a decent performance... though perhaps not as much as some of the other dual cabs on the market. For the price though, it's hard to beat and after 90000 km I've not had a single issue.

Hi, I can only tell you that my 2.5 Diesel with 175000km has got an Electrical Problem with 5 Visits to Mitsibushi Dealers there have not found the problem as yet. That I have spent $2000 for all that nonsense is needless to say. However wen the bloody thing runs it is perfect, really good fuel consumption and uses no Oil.
