Mirage=Tecnica
Nativa=Montero Sport

All the imports(owners) seems that want to imitate Honda, that's why you see all the cars with Si rims. How will my Mustang look with Si rims??? I will try that.

Technica is the upscale Mirage. You will see a lot of Evolution stickers as this is an (option) package consisting of seat covers, wind deflectors and the decals.

Pepboys has Knockoff SI rims and SI decals so you'll see alot of confusion.

You still here yet?

Exclamation Trebol's Warr

Actually I do not know who told you such an embarrasing thing but we (Trebol Motors) do provide warranty and we offer an optional 7year 100,000mile coverage for just $1500 more. Anyway if you are interested in one please give me a call and I will be more than glad to give you a discount on the price for the WRX.

Also I would like to meet the Sattelite(person) who mentioned that Trebol Motors does not cover Warr issues regarding WRX's in Puerto Rico.

Ok so if I understand you then the warr provided is through Trebol Motors and not from SOA or is it from SOA????

Yes we provide the warranty through SOA, but it does not imply that SOA covers the cost we take this part. This is done to have a more competitive pricing on SUbarus in Puerto Rico, if not then Subaru would cost something like Volvos or BMW's which people would not pay for them in our market.

If you compare pricing in the US and PR pricing the difference is avg. $2000.00, when all other makes in the market avgs. $5,000 or more.

Thats true, if you look at Hondas/Acuras for example, when a 99-00 Civic Si used to cost 17K in the US, it cost 23-25k here in PR. With the ITR, its about 24k in the US, but 32-34k in PR....
This is all because of shipping, taxes...and well...greed in SOME cases.
The only cars that dont get their prices raised that much, are domestics...

Survival Guide for Driving in Puerto Rico


If you're ever in the need to drive in the streets of Puerto Rico,
The following rules may help you get to your destination safely.

I. The Puerto Rican Driver Greeting
When greeting a Puerto Rican driver, slowly lower your windows and be
prepared to greet the driver with: "Tu madre, pendejo". However, if
you have already been addressed by a fellow driver, reply with a joyful:
"La tuya, cabron".

II. On Traffic Lights
From pure observation I have determined the following instructions
For each color: Yellow light: Accelerate your car as much as possible.
Red light: This light gives permission to the next five to six cars
to go through.
Green light: Reduce speed and wait for the five to six car passing
Through their respective red lights.

III. Little Known Fact
Time to start honking your horn as soon as the light turns green: =
1.5 seconds

IV. On Traffic Jams
Traffic jams are filled with fun-filled activities such as:
1. Honking your horn rythmically
2. Put on make-up (usually female drivers only)
3. Nose-pickers sightseeing (not to be confused with
people who scratch their brains through their nose.
4. Reduce speed to watch whatever is causing the traffic jam.
Add excitement by trying to see if you know the parties involved.
(Note:Every Puerto Rican driver is obligated to do this).
5. Lose weight by sweating like a pig as a result of
lack of air conditioning.
6. Greet other drivers.
7. Practice lane changing.
8. Play the game: "Let's see how close I can get to you
before rear-ending you".

V. On Pedestrians
These individuals are an annoyance to the Puerto Rican driver.If you
See pedestrians in your way, accelerate your car to let them know who's
The boss. If you're at an intersection, let the pedestrians know you want
To proceed by flinging your car at them.

VI. On Highway Driving
The Police Alert Network: If you see a cop while driving through the
highway, you must advise other drivers about the cop's proximity by
flashing your headlights even during the day. By doing this, you help speeding
cars, people in stolen cars, and potential
escaped convicts avoid an unpleasant situation.
The Three-Lane-Change: This movement requires a lot of precision and
creativity. It should be done around the highest number of cars
possible and in a matter of seconds to create what others may refer to as
widespread panic.

VII. On Highway Toll
There are simple etiquette rules on how to behave at a Puerto Rican
tollbooth:
1. If you don't have enough change or only have dollar bills, go to
the EXACT CHANGE lane. This will give you the opportunity to get out of
your car and look for change at another toll booth as other drivers greet you.
2. Practice your hoops by throwing the coins as far as possible. You
will get extra points if one of them does not get in.
3. If there's a traffic jam to get through the tolls, try changing
lanes, other drivers will really appreciate you cutting in ahead of them.
4. Wait until the last moment possible to get the change required for
the toll, preferably, wait until it's your turn.

VIII. The Ten Most Dangerous Drivers in Puerto Rico
1. Anyone driving in a Hyundai. Inside every Hyundai is the soul of
an Indy 500 car, or at least the drivers of these "bikes with roof" would
make you think so.
2. People who drive while talking on their cellular phones.
Essentially, this means that the entire driving population is
dangerous.
3. Any kid driving mom/dad's car. Dangerousness increases with the
cost of the car
4. Anyone driving a Sport Utility Vehicle. Dangerousness increases
if the driver is female, and becomes lethal if she has young children in the
car, is talking on the cell phone, or is applying make-up.
5. Old people driving big American-made cars. The wither the hair
the bigger the car, the more dangerous.
6. Ford Crown Victorias/Mercury Grand Marquis. The car, itself
isn't dangerous, but this is the car of our illustrious legislators and
government officials use and, of course, they are exempt from observing any
traffic laws.
7. If at the traffic light, you can feel the bass vibrations from
the car next to you, and the music is "underground rap", by definition, the
driver is dangerous.
8. Any truck. Not only are they exempt from the weight limits, they
are also exempt from any driving laws.
9. On Friday nights on the Las Americas, Luis A. Ferre, De Diego,
and Baldorioty de Castro Expressways, all drivers are dangerous,
regardless of sex, religion, race, or national origin.
10. Anyone behind the wheel of a Ford Mustang 5.0 Liter. Not used by
the government, but our "import/export" businessmen favor this car, and
they are not to be disagreed with.
