Re: T&T OFFICIAL New Vehicle Prices & Discussion Thread

Each of the 6 dealership groups in this country make healthy profit margins on the sales of their vehicles. Is it attributed solely on market forces or something more strategic than that? Let's take a look at an example: A local dealership (Co. D) sells vehicles from an automobile manufacturer known...

Hi guys, does anyone have a red gen1 (2011 - 2017) Chevy Cruze LS or LT with paint code GCS? If so, I have a small tin of touch-up paint that I purchased some time years ago and I no longer need it. Will give it to you for free. Let me know via pm, I'll be around, thanks.

Yup, T&T is the hub for many ops throughout the island-chain so it would be safe to assume that there is some job security at risk.

Re: Stock market action - Sagicor sold! AND - Republic acquires Scotiabank's operations in nine Caribbean countries!

Not entirely accurate. Some staff of SBTT knew to some extent of some strategic changes taking place within the region. It is safer to say that the majority of staff at RHL did not know their Group would be expanding. RBC and Scotiabank are de-risking and this is a measure of concern for me. There h...

Re: Shooting on the Beetham?

Fun fact: With the right rifle, a sniper can neutralize a target from Ft. George to Mucurapo Road/Foreshore intersection (as an example) with high accuracy. Fortunately, there is no one in T&T trained to do so. However, from an elevated position of the Laventille hills, it is easy to find a 1,00...

Re: Car ploughs into cyclists on Beetham killing two, injuring many

If the cycling community was made up of beetham residents then expect the status quo to remain or the complete ban of this activity on the nations roads. The truth is many cyclists are members of the 1 and 2% fraternity and therefore, expect changes which will grant them more rights to a road and ma...

By chance, does anyone know if we will get the Ranger 2.0 bi turbo 4 cylinder with the 10AT transmission to replace the 3.2 5 cylinder 6AT? If so, do you think with a reduction in weight, that this 2.0 Ranger may no longer require HeavyT?

Re: THE BEST VAN

Adoni, you’ve got good observation there! Yes the Nissan rack is perhaps taller due to the rear third stop light. Since the Hilux has the third stop light on the tailgate, it allows for a shorter rack, keeping it inline with the cab’s roof line which is better for aerodynamics. WRT the XE model you ...

There is a huge concern for many would-be van purchasers about the lack of the protective bar behind the cab itself to facilitate carrying long objects etc. Nissan calls this the “headache” rack.
