    That's why if I was after a new bakkie I wouldn't consider a new Triton.
    I agree, the MQ shape was a much better looking vehicle. Although I still won't mind a new one

    I had a Mq triton and i never got used to the front end..But damn its a good bakkie for the money.
    I have a pajero sport now but if the new triton was ibn my price range i would have loved to have had one..I think its their best looking bakkie since the colt first came out

    I love Mitsubishi and had a whole range of colts 2.8 ,Tritons 2.5 and 3.2 and Pajero's 3.2 and 3.8 and would still be driving them if it hadn't been for the customer service.

    That is my only reason I changed away from the brand and have not gone back.

    A real pitty as they are awesome vehicles. I still browse through the available ones quite often but just can't forget about the continuous issues with service departments

    Surely a very good vehicle, but that shape/look Way to feminine....

    Dit pla my geensins nie, as dit my gepla het dat mense dink Tritons is lelik sou ek seker nie een gery het nie ne? Dit raak net bietjie afgesaag dat jy oor en oor op 'n Triton thread kom se dis vir jou lelik. Ons het dit die eerste 5 keer gekry jy hou nie daarvan nie
    Wys net vir jou hoe lelik die kar vir my is.

    In dieselfde asem, gaan tel bietjie hoeveel keer daar al uitgewys is op die thread:

    1) die dealer netwerk

    2) swak bemarking

    3) die looks.

    Almal stem wel saam dat dit 'n goeie kar is, wat die aanvanklike vraag regverdig: hiekom verkoop dit nie beter nie?

    Ek sien nie dat jy probleem met die ander het wat hul menings herhaal nie.

    Elke man soen sy vrou anders. Ek verstaan dit. Maar ek dink jy neem 'n bietjie banter hopenlik te persoonlik op - weet nie hoekom nie.

    Which one, the old or new shape?

    The new shape is definitely not feminine.

    Both....especially the previous. Good luck to them (Mits) changing perceptions/dislikes with the new shape, but I do not think so

    The longest that I had to wait for accident damage parts was 2 weeks. What more do you want?

    It depends on the panel beater you use. I've never had an issue getting parts. Lock sets, stickers, bumper no problems.

    I find it "interesting" that people buy utility vehicles based on what they look like.

    Platkarre, yes (maybe), but to base your choice of a bakkie on "looks" is a bit "metro" IMHO.

    PS, to me the Triton bakkies don't look bad at all.

    I find your assumption perplexing.

    No one here said that they only buy bakkies based on looks. But looks plays a role.

    I will re-phrase it.

    Many here said that the Triton is not a popular choice due to the looks, which means that they chose others because of better looks.

    If looks are important, look at the Chinese bakkies, they mimic the best looks of Japanese bakkies, while under the skin, it is another story (which is OT, but I have experience through my BIL)

    If you had three choices with basically the same specs, would you not chose the better looking option?

    That is the conundrum.
    This thread indicates that the Triton is most probably the "best", except for dealer support and looks.

    I understand the dealer part, but not the looks bit.

    It depends the reason for looking back at your car when walking away from it. Some people do that to make sure it hasn't been stolen.

    I've always thought the Trinton looks fine..

    Looks would never have put me off.

    The main reason is I tend to hang on to my vehicles for a long time. Due to less of them sold means parts and spares wount be as freely available as other more popular makes

    Nie werklik 'n raaisel nie. Ek dink die thread maak baie duidelik hoekom die nuwe Triton nie goed verkoop nie.

    Dit is ook nie die beste bakkie nie (in my opinie). Die top spec Toyota, Navara en Ford (en ook binnekort die Isuzu) het meer krag as die top spec Triton. Maar ek sal toegee krag is nie alles nie.

    Die Triton is 'n goeie kar. Punt. Maar nie die beste bakkie nie (weereens my opinie). Goeie waarde vir geld in vergelyking met die ander? Beslis.
