Re: Price drop on the 2018 CRV ? Yeah, right !!

Brandon, you're on to something there. The 2.0 MPi unit combined with the 6AT torque converter automatic was a more stable combination for our market (Tucson) and would be more reliable in the long term. With the advent of the 1.6 GDi-T and dry clutch DCT, I just don't trust that combo. In fact, I d...

Re: T&T OFFICIAL new vehicle prices and discussion thread

Carluva, it was a random photo. I understand that the Rush was advertised in today's papers for the first time. In terms of 7 seaters there's quite a few of them in the market besides the Rush including Fortuner, Land Cruiser Prado, Land Cruiser, Xtrail Exclusive 7 seat, Pathfinder, Outlander, Pajer...

Re: T&T OFFICIAL new vehicle prices and discussion thread

Re: T&T OFFICIAL new vehicle prices and discussion thread

Hi guys there’s an unconfirmed report that the 2018 Toyota Rush 7 seat mini SUV is almost at TTTL’s local showrooms. I was told that it’s a mini Fortuner but for $250k. Guess time will tell.

Re: CY lancer (08 lancer)

RS, my stock wheels were 16x6.5 rims with Dunlop SP Sport LM703 205/60/16 tyres and swapped out to 17x7 rims on Dunlop Direzza DZ102 225/45/17 tyres. No touching whatsoever. Even with KYB shocks and stock springs, the ride quality was not harsh by any means but the handling improved significantly.

Re: Why are Trinis afraid of CVT transmission?

CVTs are generally a hit or a miss really with many manufacturers. It’s the same with torque converter automatics and dual clutch transmissions. The first time I heard of the fear of CVTs was in reference to the local CS Lancer which came with the 4G18 engine and INVECS 111 CVT. Another one we heard...
