The focus is really built in Germany? The sales guy told me that but I laughed at him and passed it off as bulls&$@ cause he seemed to not know any technical information about the car.

When you include the free service and insurance the loaded titanium model at $249k is a bargain!


The prices you quoting don't include insurance and free service. You forgetting the interest you will have to pay at Ansa merchant bank

Did I just see "Civic", "high performance" and "luxury" in the same sentence without "not"?

I saw a Navy Blue Elantra (New edition) today looking like some kinda sport model, with GS8 (ah think) and 2.0 (for sure) badges on the back. Also had 2 Mufflers and a nice looking lights in the back. Anyone knows about this model?

That's for you to decide. I don't know whats value to you. I got the Jetta cuz it was the fastest new car for the money I was willing to spend at the time. The fact that it got decent fuel econ and good infotainment system was just extra for me.

I don't know the exact trim the Mazda 3 will come in but I do get the impression it will be a driver's car no matter the spec and shouldn't written off before it even reaches here. If it was all about ticking off check boxes and bells and whistles we would all just buy the cheapest car with a lot of features as opposed to discussing the various attributes assigned to actually driving and visually liking and living with the vehicle.

Allu men seem to think that the US car market and the trini car market is the same?

The US mazda 3 and the Trini Mazda 3 is 2 different cars ... as different as night and day and the same goes for the Trini jetta and the US jetta

Every 2 to 3 pages we does have to do this same dance with allu same fellars about US/europe/ and Trini cars/car market being different when allu go get some sense.

Actually those pics were taken from a Malaysian site (http://paultan.org/2013/11/13/gallery-2 ... -malaysia/) and the look of the car should be similar to one we will get here that will be imported from Japan.

Southern Sales ppl feel free to correct me.
