2017 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport GLS (4x4) 7 Seat review

When the last of the kids left home, the wife and I looked around and decided to take contract positions in far-western Queensland. We quickly realised that we needed something more than our Eco-hatch; we needed a large roo-bar and spotlights. I found a demo Pajero Sport with both items and west we went...

2019 Mitsubishi Triton GLS (4x4) review

My Triton was purchased in February 2019 - a December 2018 build and the second MR Triton sold by the dealer. It was purchased so that my wife and I could tow a camper trailer and go off the grid. Since purchase, there have been a few minor issues to do with the side windows which had faults in the glass, however these were dealt with quickly and the glass replaced at the dealership...

2013 Mitsubishi Lancer LX review

I like Mitsubishis even though I no longer drive one. Why? Price and reliability. In my household we have owned four Mitsus (equalling 25-plus years of ownership) and besides normal maintenance, tyres and batteries, we’ve only replaced the front brakes on one and some suspension bushes on another. Thats it. 25 years...

1992 Mitsubishi Lancer GSR (4WD) review

Well what can I say about Mitsubishi’s (CC) Lancer GSR? It was launched in Australia in 1992, it had 141kW, 255Nm of torque, AWD, and a kerb weight of just over a 1000 kilograms. It was a rocket; 0-100km/h was dispatched in 7 seconds, which does not seem fast these days, but back then a Falcon or Commodore V8 took 8 to 9 seconds, so that was quick...

2017 Mitsubishi Triton GLX (4x4) review

I have now owned my Triton for just over a year, so I believe I can give some sound thoughts on what it is like to live with on a day to day basis. To begin with, lets start with the Triton's biggest seller, the price. I paid about $32,000 for my 2017 GLX (yes, I had some optional extras thrown on, but nothing to blow a price out)...

2012 Mitsubishi Pajero GLS LWB (4x4) review

The purchase of a second-hand 2012 Pajero in 2015 from a dealer was not a good experience. I was promised books and spare keys, but they were not initially there. However the keys arrived after some discussion. The books also arrived, but they were not the books for my car - there was the wrong VIN, which prompted more discussion...

1996 Mitsubishi 3000 GT Review

The year was 2005. I was a high school student finishing Year 12. The day was done and I was heading to the bus stop for the long ride home. As I cross the road, I get caught in the pedestrian island in the middle of a busy main road in southeast Queensland. Watching car after car drive by, something abruptly catches my eye...

2017 Mitsubishi ASX LS (2WD) review

"I need the quote, the whole quote, and nothing but the quote," I asked with my guilt-ridden neo-postmodern-quasi-proletariat fists clutching the table. The receptionist remained placid, and with a laconic smile shoved a taxi voucher into disbelieving fingers. "What's this?" I cried, willfully suspending my disbelief in the Jungian evilness of the collective society, however she remained calm as a latter-day class revolution on YouTube...

2001 Mitsubishi Magna Executive review

The year was 1997, and my parents were looking for a new car. Into my possession came a glossy brochure for the recently released TE Magna/KE Verada handed to us by the local Mitsubishi dealer. Showcasing a beautifully proportioned design made to cut through the air, I was captivated by its sharp lines, strong shoulders, sports car-style frameless side windows, and aerodynamic flag-style mirrors amongst many other design features...

2015 Mitsubishi Lancer GSR Sportback review

Buying my first car was always going to be a struggle between heart and head. The heart, of course, was saying “Go for the 10-year-old Alfa GT”. The head (and dad) was saying “Go for something new or near new and reliable”. Enter the Mitsubishi Lancer, a car that some might sarcastically argue is almost as old as my dad...

1997 Mitsubishi Magna Sports review

'Seeing red' is a phrase meaning to lose control. Just what happened when I saw this forlorn vehicle in the local classifieds. Tired, ringbarked and faded but with a straight body and the promise of a new clutch, the price was just enough to make me sidestep logic and buy car number three...
