Mitsubishi Triton 2006 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Mitsubishi Triton here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Mitsubishi Triton: Drop in power
I would be looking at the fuel supply, the filters, fuel pump, and the fuel itself. If the performance generally has dropped off I would also be looking at the turbocharger.
2006 Mitsubishi Triton GLX-R 3.2-litre diesel
I would agree with the dealer's diagnosis of carbon build-up and cleaning it will probably fix it.
Mitsubishi Triton: Rear centre stoplights
They’re not required on utes. Triton GLX-Rs have one on centre of tailgate and have had since CR launch in 2006, but GLXs don't have one.
Is a two-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive ute better for towing?
Unless you need a vehicle capable of driving over rough or slippery ground, I would buy a 2WD diesel ute. It will be more economical than a 4WD and will tow your trailer without problems. Your budget will get you an upmarket ute. Look at the Toyota Hilux or new Mitsubishi Triton. Also, there are good deals available on the Mazda Bravo and Ford Courier for much less. For little more than $20,000 you'll get a 2WD diesel with a tray and toolbox.
