hi all, I want to get a pick-up for city drive. not going to carry loads. i just prefer high-rise car but only budget around RM100k. but after reading here and there, most people say nissan navara provides the best passenger comfort because it uses coil spring. triton is also using coil spring and now have merdeka+gst discount up to rm15k. quite attractive to me. thinking of getting the triton vgt at premium edition. i am sitting my baby car seat at the back. don't want him to jump till neck break if the back is bumpy. Mitsubishi triton won carsifu award best pick-up and best diesel engine. why everybody say it is not good compared to ford ranger or navara, or even hilux? for suv, hrv is pretty but many comments say h brand service sux and got a lot of problem. or wait for proton geely suv? car expert here please advice. tax holiday ending soon. dilemma.

idk about west malaysia, but in em, mitsubishi is known for its bad service centre. hence why ppl shy away from triton. granted, this was 10-15 years back, idk now

For passenger service only Nissan got the comfort.
But safety not up to mark

I think better to get SUV instead of pickup

I'm driving triton vgt gs since 4 years ago. Overall quite happy with it. Need to do small mod at the rear to smooth the ride.

Service and spare part so far no issue. Last year did some mod. Install alphatech ecu to increase horsepower and torque. Change rear and front bumper to steel one and sport rim.

Still very strong after 177,000 km and main usage is on highway every weekend jb-kl

Why not SUV? 4wd is rarely comforting.

wow.... what will you use the pick up for?

if you are not going to carry stuff a pick up is not ideal...

where will you store the luggage? the back area usually not so easy to keep safe and dry

and the seating area is not so comfortable...

why not look into a 2nd hand SUV?

suv mostly out of budget. don't want perodua or current proton. geely p1 pula haven't arrives. sst kicks in baru it come. old hrv no stock. new hrv dunno the price. brv and avanza i dont like. asx pula scare no resale value <-- typical malaysian.

all I can say... now many people use truck not for its 4WD but for its ganaz look... you go to any 4WD mod shop and you'll be surprised on how good the look of their mod... of course expensive...

truck has different type of attraction... when you drive it then you know... got power... got size... when you come out... people stop and give way... you can't get that with vios, camry or accord...

first mod must be the sport rim la... get 17" or larger... get the 265 tyer width... it will get your top speed down la... but the look is so ganaz....
