Also the headliner dropped in our 09 accord with <60k km. Really didn’t expect that. Usually parked under cover too


Japanese Accord or Euro Accord?

Surprised about the headliner dropping. Usually that’s a Euro vehicle thing.

Co-work said once fully charge, the range is 200km. However, it depends on driving pattern. He could run Barataria to South and back and only use half charge or so.

300km is the minimum I feel I could work with.

Both the Niro an Kona EV exceeds this but the price will by much higher if these are ever brought in to Trinidad (unless the Goverment agrees to a subsidy which is not likely)

Is there an average for the amount of power generated via the regenerative braking system, as this may improve the range of the vehicle.

When I go country and back I do 160 km if I want to go out at night afterwards that 200 cutting it a lil close for comfort. 300 however will be perfect

agent007 wrote:Hey guys, it appears I clearly missed out a lot in the recent discussions in here. May I with respect point out that it is clear most of you all dont have a clue on how local dealerships operate and with good reason because many of their pricing practices and strategies are not public knowledge.
There are 6 authorized dealership groups in TT and all I can tell you guys without ruffling any feathers is this: there is a crossover vehicle that was mentioned here quite recently where whether you want to believe it or not, because frankly I am not asking you to believe me and I dont care if you do or dont, but coming back to this crossover vehicle, the dealer makes approximately $100k in profit per sale. There is another dealership that sells a 4x4 SUV and the markup is approx. $300k. Take it for what it's worth.
I would suggest going forward though, instead of trying to discuss information that you have no idea about and populating this thread with typical trini banter, how many of you all actually purchased a new vehicle and tried sharing constructive information for those who actually rely on forums like this to make a wise purchasing decision?
Clearly most of you all in here are in the upper echelons of society so please, Im asking kindly to really share your purchasing stories with fellow users, tell us how was your experience, the discounts you got, what led you to the vehicle and perhaps share some of your parts and service costs with us. I have done so a few times on different vehicles and I challenge you all to do same. Let's stop trying to one-up each other (I surely get it, you all are rich, informed and connected) and really help each other and leave the trolls to disappear.
Thanks tuners.


Well said OP, but not to derail and since this thread is also to discuss prices, to your knowledge is there anything that can be done to reduce this ridiculous profit and make vehicle prices more competitive and affordable?


Yeah. Don’t buy.

AGREED! if people stopped buying new cars, the dealers WOULD lower their prices, they cant adfford to have Stock sitting there doing absolutely nothing .............. without a Demand they cant go foward.

regarding the new G20 3 series ansa said three units have been ordered; base, luxury & m sport and should be here in 2 months time

said these would be 3000cc models only just for viewing purposes as they would be officially taking customer orders from end of this yr when the 1500cc model would be available to them

only asked about the m sport price which the guy said is $635k which to me sounds low for a 3000cc because mvt on a new vehicle 3000cc $135k alone with luxury tax so i think it's probably the 2000cc they bringing for those 3 units

so it look like next yr for the G20 to be on the streets

Sounds like they don’t know their own product. :)

It’s most probably the 330i they are bringing which is a: 2.0-litre TwinPower Turbo in-line 4-cylinder. 255hp. 295lb-Ft.

0-60 in 5.6sec.

Sorry man been out of the country.

Father is in the market for a new car so will be on the prowl over the next few months.

He loves Honda and was looking at the CRV but I am still concerned over that oil dilution issue. Will be going to see the Forester and waiting for the new Rav to see what its like.

We dont want to pay 410 for the forester tho ... So will push them to see how far they willing to go. Doubt I can negotiate with toyota sales folk ... Dont even think toyota needs em :lol:

Not sure if it’s only the ‘power of dreams’ engine in the US that the gas is mixing with the oil

Welcome back drchaos! I really hope ur pops takes the Forester instead. Might be less powerful but I'm sure it is overall more capable than the CRV. Is it coming from Japan?

On another note, you guys saw the new Chinese offering from ANSA Motors yet? It's like the ASX, Trax and Creta all came together to produce this child, see below:

meanwhile, Massy launched this mini crossover priced between $179-$189k

Yeah, saw some pics on facebook and an event is planned this Saturday. There's a short video clip showing the car with a heads up display. Should be interesting to see the car and more interestingly, the cost. Check mitsubishi trinidad fb page or smtgh like that
