Mitsubishi Triton 2017 Problems
No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the Mitsubishi Triton 2017 reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.
Mitsubishi Triton 2016 or Isuzu D-Max 2015: Which one should I buy?
The D-Max is pretty well regarded in the trade for its ability to go the distance, but modern, common-rail diesel technology has shown that a vehicle with fewer kilometres is usually a better bet than one with more. Although they do an amazing job in terms of power, torque, towing and fuel economy, today’s turbo-diesels are pretty highly strung in some ways and really need their maintenance. And the older they get, the more attention they seem to need in terms of new injectors, filters and pumps.
A D-Max with those kilometres might be ready for a pretty big (and expensive) service, too, so make sure your first trip in it isn’t going to be to a workshop. Ultimately, price, condition and service history should steer your decision as they should in any second-hand vehicle purchase. I’d take a vehicle with 150,000km with a full service history over a 60,000km one with no service records.
Mitsubishi Triton: Vibrating seat
Any number of things could be exciting the passenger seat, the wheels and tyres, driveline, engine. It’s not likely to be the suspension/shocks, although they would be prime suspects when it comes to the hard ride. Take it to a suspension specialist and check out the options for springs, shocks and bushes.
Mitsubishi Triton 2017: Limp-home mode
It sounds like it is going into limp mode, which means the computer is seeing something wrong, perhaps with a sensor. Being intermittent it’s hard for the dealer to fix. Persist with it and keep taking it back.
Next time it stops turn the ignition off and then attempt to restart it. It’s likely that it will start and you should be able to drive on.
Mitsubishi Triton 2017 or Toyota HiLux 2017: Which ute should I buy?
It’s a hard call, and comes down to what you want it to do. The Workmate is cheaper, has a larger engine, and a higher towing rating, but is not as economical as the Triton. On the whole the Toyota comes out on top.
Best car to drive around Australia?
You first need to decide the level of off-roading you will be doing because that will determine if you need a four-wheel drive or you only need an all-wheel drive SUV. From what you have told us I suspect that an SUV, such as a Kia Sorento, Toyota Kluger, or a Nissan X-Trail would be the best all-round vehicle for you. All of those would fit your budget, they will all go off-road to a reasonable degree, and they're all reliable. The Mitsubishi Triton is a hard-riding ute, which I don't think is what you want, but the Suzuki Grand Vitara is a good vehicle and would also fit your needs.
