MITSUBISHI TRITON Used Car Review

This Japanese workhorse ute is one of the segment's longest servers, having existed since the late 1970s. 2006's fourth-generation (ML) Triton caused a stir with curvy styling that was polarising in a category renowned for tough looks. Mitsubishi, however, was simply acknowledging the potential lifestyle appeal of dual-cab utes beyond construction sites, and the unusually room rear cabin made the Triton the segment's first proper family 'car'. The latest-generation Triton continued the theme when it was released in 2015.

Pros

Cons

  • Great used-car bargains to be found
  • 2015 models onwards strong on safety
  • Clever Super-Select system can switch into 4WD on the move
  • Big range of body styles, drivetrains and trim levels
  • Unsettled ride, and slow steering even by ute standards
  • Older Tritons missing safety equipment and 4-star crash rating only
  • Many rivals carry more and tow more
  • Diesel doesn't have as much grunt as many rival engines
This is general information and should not be relied on as purchasing advice.

SIMILAR MODELS TO MITSUBISHI TRITON

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: MITSUBISHI TRITON (2009-2015 MODELS)

Like any of these vehicles, towing ability was a big selling point, so make sure the Triton you're looking at hasn't been worked to death hauling huge trailers or caravans.

Unburned diesel which manifests as soot and carbon deposits can build up in the inlet manifold and turbo-boost pipe of the diesel Triton, leading to a loss of power and poor economy. The quick fix is to give the vehicle a good run down a highway at highway speeds and effectively clear its throat.

The EGR valve can also block up with soot leading to a loss of performance and the check-engine light illuminating. If that's the case, the valve needs to be removed and cleaned.

A few Tritons have also experienced head-gasket failures. Mitsubishi changed its machining processes to fix this, so a post-2013 build-date is preferable.

Among several recalls was one to check poor welds in the front suspension which could fail at speed with predictable results.
