Mitsubishi Triton 2013 Problems
No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the Mitsubishi Triton 2013 reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.
Mitsubishi Triton 2013: Do I need to upgrade my tyres?
I presume you’re not overloading the ute, so fit some Light Truck tyres. Passenger car tyres would be quieter, and the ride would be more comfortable, but you really need tyres capable of carrying the load.
Mitsubishi Triton 2013: Excessive fuel consumption
The claimed average for the Triton diesel is 9.6 L/100 km, the claimed consumption for urban driving is 11.9 L/100 km, for highway/country driving it’s 8.3 L/100 km. That, of course, is the result of a laboratory test, not a real world one, so you have to allow for some variation.
You also have to allow for some variation due to loading, driving style, road conditions, tyres and the general state of the car. I’d recommend that you keep accurate records of the fuel used so you have the data to present to the dealer, and to Mitsubishi. If your data shows the car is not performing as they claim it should ask them to rectify it. Should they refuse approach the consumer affairs people with a claim that the vehicle as supplied to you is not what was represented to you.
Mitsubishi Triton: Blowing smoke
I reckon your mechanic is on the money with the injectors. Worn injectors are a common problem on common-rail diesels; it's something that affects most brands
Mitsubishi Triton 2013: Are the turbo seals covered by warranty?
The new car warranty was for five years or 130,000km, so while it still meets the time part of the deal it's beyond the kilometer limit. Any extended warranty you have would have come from the dealer rather than Mitsubishi, so you would have to read the warranty conditions to know if the turbo seals are covered. I would expect they are if they fail because of being faulty.
Mitsubishi Triton 2013: Water damage
Driving through puddles is not a problem, but driving through a creek or river could be problematic depending on the depth of the water. This is a case of you say, they say. I would suggest you sit down with your dealer and ask him to show you evidence of the water ingress they claim has occurred. Then try and reach an agreement with them and the car company on what they might do for you.
Mitsubishi Triton: Rust
There have been other reports of rust in the Triton. When Mitsubishi was approached with a similar problem in 2015, the company offered the owner a full inspection and a Mitsubishi representative present and the promise that it would be rectified in line with the company's warranty. On that basis I would suggest you contact Mitsubishi headquarters direct and request similar action on your vehicle.

Mitsubishi Triton: What's an ideal kilometre figure?
My general rule of thumb is 160,000km but if it’s been well maintained the higher figure should be fine for something like a Triton.
Mitsubishi Triton clunking noise
It does sound like it could be a problem with the differential. At this stage you should continue to seek a solution with the dealer and Mitsubishi. We will contact Mitsubishi on your behalf and see if we can enlist higher up help.
