Why Buy A Used Mitsubishi Triton When A New One Comes With Unlimited Mileage Warranty?

Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia offers an unlimited mileage warranty on new Triton Premium units.

Pick-up trucks are essential to keeping many agricultural, industrial, and contractor-type services running in Malaysia. These types of vehicles are versatile, durable, and are reasonable in terms of cost to run. The Mitsubishi Triton stands out with a great reputation in the pick-up market that stretches back to the late 1970s. Today, if you’re looking for one to serve as a workhorse you may want to consider buying a mid-spec NEW model rather than a used high-spec model.

Here’s why.

Firstly, the used car market is still in flux and hasn’t yet recovered from the effects of the pandemic. Back in 2021, used car prices began to creep up by a huge margin across the board. This was mostly because supply of new cars was choked and shoppers were forced to buy new if they needed something urgently. Plus there were very destructive flooding seasons that ruined many cars, compounding this need for replacement cars. Inflation has also crept in – used car dealers may be adjusting their pricing to meet this and this pushes their used prices closer up to what’s available in the new market.

Secondly, these are the types of vehicles that are made to put through tough use. Pick-up trucks are regularly loaded up, taken off tarmac, left uncleaned and put through rough conditions in general. A used car dealer may do a good job cleaning it up and masking cosmetic wear but you don’t want to be the one who deals with mechanical problems once you push the vehicle in to service.

Finally, there’s a really good reason to buy new right now. Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia are offering a 5-year/unlimited mileage warranty on their Triton Premium models. That means you get the manufacturer to back your truck for the next 5-years of use no matter how high the odometer goes!

Plus, the Triton Premium is a lot more affordable than the Triton Athlete. You’ll save yourself RM20,000 by going for this variant and you’ll still benefit from some nice-to-haves such as an Easy Select 4WD selector with Off-Road mode, a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Plus you get a Digital Video Recorder pre-installed for better security.

Leather seats make it easy to wipe clean periodically if your business involves a bit of rough use. And if you routinely have workers or need to move family members in the pick-up from time to time, there are rear air circulators with individual vents up top.

So, why buy used when a new Mitsubishi Triton Premium ticks all the boxes and gives you an unbeatable, unlimited mileage warranty as the cherry on top? Check out the Online Showroom here.
