Great car would never be without my ute.

published

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.

Purchased in November 2007 for A$36,000.00.

So reliable, would buy it 10 out of 10 times

published

Very fuel economical and the distance we could get was amazing. Turning circle was a little bigger than I liked but I think the 265's didn't help. The handling though was more than excellent and very responsive. Interior is all vinyl apart from the roof which they will discontinue from 2015 onwards which to me makes no sense when buying a 4wd. Mud dirt water etc. and the room is great for passengers and packing the extras for camping

Poor fuel economy

published

I had an ML for nine years and never had a single problem. So was quite excited to be getting a new MQ Exceed. I kitted it out with the same AT tyre, hard lid and wispa roof bars.
When I drove it out of the showroom the dealer said "now don't expect the fuel economy to be right straight away" which sent alarm bells ringing.
6000kms later and I'm getting 11.5l/100kms which is very disappointing considering my old "less fuel efficient" ML would return under 10l/100kms unless towing.
I've had the injectors recalibrated but haven't noticed any difference.
Would love to hear from someone who has had this same problem resolved
Also has a rattling passenger seat and on the second lid lock.

Warranty

published

I have just had to get my front crank seal replaced on my 09 ML triton thinking it would be covered by mitsubishi's 10 year power train warranty as its part of the power train, only to find out its not covered and not classed as part of the power train and class it as part f the sump and the sump is not part of the motor!!. So now they want to charge $1600 to replace it. Nowhere in the warranty book does it mention anything about the simp not being part of the motor, bit dosn't s motor need a dump to rundown therefore part of the power train. In my opinion the 10 year power train warranty isn't worth the paper it's written on. I took this up with their head office only to come to the same conclusion!!

I'd never buy another triton

published

I have had my triton now for 3 years and in that time it has had the manifold removed for cleaning 6 times.
The carbon build up in the inlet manifold always blocks up causing the ute to lose power and surge really badly.
They are the only type of ute to do it from what I can find out because of the set up.
Never in my life have I owned such a lemon ute before and never again would I own one.
This problem with them has been around for a number of years and even the 2016 models will do the same.
Mitsubishi should be ashamed of themselves for selling such a shonky product and recall all tritons and get this issue fixed.
Buy something else folks because tritons are crap.

I've got a 07 3.2L Triton and I drive it like I stole it everyday!! Towing boats, excavator on trailer work trailers and can't kill it. The one thing that has gone wrong is the blocking of the egg valve but that's about it. I've just hit 140000km now and still goes like a champ. I love it so much.

Go Triton

My triton no problems!!!!!!!!!
I got it in 07 and up to date only the clock spring for the air bag had to be replaced after i did the canning stock route lotttts of corrigation.
Breathers are standert and during the gibb river up north we went through lots of deep water no problen
Mod: 2 inch lift, 265/75 tyres, front locker, long range fuel tank, snorkel, the rest is cosmetics.
This 4x4 has traveled 120000km with about 50000 km off road.
I wouldn't change it for anything, the botton line is your driving, anybody can destroy any 4x4 if you want to

Sweet Lemonade..No Sour Lemon

published

Have had my 07 GLX Double Cab 4x4 with alloy tray since new and not a problem (so far). Have used it mainly on road (94000kms) and never had a problem, on the off road, handled the situation fine, high/low engages fine. Sure, as with a diesel, the noise aint no purring " Porche " and with bigger wheels doesn't help either but that's what i wanted.
For a 4Cyl Diesel Turbo, it gets up and boogies really well. Consumption for its size is good..(usual story, the harder the workout, the more you will drink). Overall ..lots of room inside for 2 adults and 3 teens. Reliable (so far so good), Impressed with engine.
Seats a little hard (but this is a commercial 4x4).

Great Unit!!

published

2008 2.4L petrol. # yrs and only issue have been the cabin light & oil sensor. Thirsty with a load. Comfortable (for the driver). Passenger seat belongs in a bus. Loads of extras. Looked at hilux, but oh so primitive. No cig lighter, no intermittent wiper, no air con, vinyl seats, no power windows. What sold it for me was the ability to turn off the passenger air bag so I could transport my young kids. Able to get 600 km from a tank in urban drive. Really solid. Really happy.
Reliable. Comfortable. Ton of extras. High seating. Ergonomics. Gd service intervals.
Passenger seat. Thrsty with a load.

Excellent

An odd look at first, but driving it and off roading in it will change your hart, fresh ideas used, Pajero backbone! with a cool rear window, the others will follow!
Powerfull 3.2, nice features, high rear seat-only double cab that the rear passangers can see the road, a SUV with a loadbox! NCAP safety
needs a roll bar as standard!

You can expect all you want from this vehicle for it produces top quality results. With it's price so cheap everyone would want to buy one.
Excellent vehicle made by Mitsubishi, a Japanese company. This car has one of those good looks it has all the things you would want from a 4 wheel drive ute. Excellent for off road use. Has a nice strong tray albe to carry up to 1 tons worth of anything. The price is cheap and nobody wouldn't want to have a price like this.
The reversing and parking bit are the hardest. It's just long, needs more space to turn into the parking space.

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.

The 2.4s? 2015 - current - yes very reliable.
The 2.5 2009 - 2015 in Australia - some had issues, i didnt.
The 3.2 ML 2006 - 2009 like your title, yes very reliable, bit noisy and rough but very reliable.
