I finds that the Suzuki Vitara (Allgrip model) is the best value for money. The cost of maintenance at the firm is no higher than at the other dealerships.

I have had mine for six years and 86000km now and the only things that had to be fixed that were done under warranty were:
1) The transmission used to downshift into first when slowing down rather hard.
2) The front passenger side and rear right side power window switches had to be replaced.

You have a lot of hard plastics in the interior, but then again, most new cars are coming this way.

Anyone has pricing and details on the latest entries to the small sedan segment: revised Nissan Versa and Honda City?

I've seen a new Versa on the road, and one at Massy's showroom in POS, so they're definitely on sale.

I'm not so sure about the City... haven't seen any indication from Classic itself, that they're available, but oddly Innovative Security has several in their fleet now. Maybe Classic didn't supply them?

Last price on the Honda City RS hybrid I saw was $239,000. Seems to be a better spec model than the outgoing City CNG. Most likely the first shipment was not that big and was sold on a fleet deal (could be wrong). Have not seen the new Versa, would like to know the details as well.

Well look at that. I was wondering the same thing about the new Honda City and wasn't sure if it was mentioned on the forum. It was only today I saw one for the first time in Tobago. I was wondering what vehicle it was as it passed by, but when I got a view of the back, I realized it was Honda City. Looks good. It is owned by National Gas Company.

They have a couple... very basic builds. You could probably order a better spec one though.

Any news on the new Ranger? One sakes rep said April/May, another said June.
I'm told all up to the Wildtrak will be 2.0 biturbo and they will be more expensive than the current model. Now I know vehicle prices have risen globally but shouldn't the much smaller engine (especially fx4 vs sport and wildtrak models) offset the increased manufacturing costs? A whole 1200 cc should dramatically bring the cost down right?

Sadly it doesn't seem like dealers are passing on any decreased prices in vehicles due to smaller engines and consequently smaller MVT onto to customers. Look at Massy and their 1.3l Qashqai which starting at 285k as compared to the previous 2l versions.

However with regards to T vehicle and I stand to be corrected - isn't the MVT on engine sizes pretty small and also fixed regardless of displacement? Meaning the difference in MVT between a 3.2l and 2l T vehicle will only be a few thousand dollars as compared to say the difference between a 2.5l to a 1/5l car.

The version of the Motor Vehicle and Road Traffic Act up has the MVT at $2.50 per cc for goods vehicles

I don't know. You probably are correct. Their plan is to sell old and new models at different price points. I'm waiting to see how much different
