    2015 Triton

    Hi all, just reading through the thread on Colorado utes and some people here seem to have a good handle on utes in NZ. I am currently looking at a 2015 Mitsubishi Trition 4wd that seems to tick a few boxes for me (for the price), but I'd love to hear any feedback on them good or bad so I'm better informed when I organise a test drive.

    Cheers in advance.

    Just got a 2018 triton, been happy with it so far (issue with the android auto but think it's my phone rather than the truck) but haven't done much with it, service was piss poor and not impressed in the least. Had to wait 3months for the canopy I wanted as there was a stuff up with the stock left.

    Truck is really nice to drive, almost boring on the open road. Plenty of grunt, didn't even notice the trailer with a couple of metres of firewood the other day. Extra 12K for heated leather sets and a rear diff lock....

    Took a few for a test drive and the triton for the best value for money that I could see

    if its manual watch out for the standard fault of bad (or no) 4th to rd gearshift. also use a manifold/ egr cleaner occasionally or they clog up really badly and go into limp home mode

    Think @BobGibson has an triton around that year

    Mate got a manual one a few years ago, reckoned the clutch was either in or out and took a lot of getting used to
