    Well, considering that it is already 2012 and most of the car manufacturers are designing new AT systems, just like Mazda, Toyota should have equip the FT86 with a newer version of AT tranny. The conventional AT trannies does provide smooth shifting, but it still very inefficient in transferring the power to the wheels. Sana man lang kahit kagaya ng skyactive ng Mazda or a better CVT system na hindi kagaya ng Honda's CVT trannies.

    Although, I really like the engine...But i just read somewhere that Nissan is manufacturing a Jazz-like car which is supercharged...That's another car to look up to...

    You're that meticulous about the trasmission?

    OT. What are you driving now?

    I'm driving an AT and a manual...it's not about being meticulous, I'm after the new tech's these companies can offer...

    What's the point of buying another conventional AT if I already have one, I like the manual but thinking about the everydays's traffic makes me think twice. This is the reason why I'm really eyeing for a DCT, para bang best of both words. Maganda rin sana CVT pero nakakatakot yung mga CVT...

    Ang kulit with the Skyactive AT ah - CONVENTIONAL AT pa rin yun. Same freakin' torque converter technology with a new name.

    Does it deliver power better than other ATs? Having driven one, I'd have to say NO. For one, its stablemate, the Mazda 3 2.0R with the non-Skyactive 148 HP engine and 5-speed auto feels faster.

    Akala ko alternick ng Mazda GDi yung Skyactiv

    Googled the Skyactiv. Marami pala Skyactiv.


    Hayaan niyo gusto ng DCT. Maiba naman daw. Pucha ang Lamborghini Gallardo nga hindi DCT.

    May SkyActiv kaldero na rin nga ko eh.

    Yung makina medyo legit kasi mataas yung compression ratio tapos direct injection na. Pero hindi naman noticably mas magaan yung chassis (same weight pa rin as the slightly smaller gasoline Tucson or Sportage). Yung transmission, ganun pa rin naman yung responsiveness.

    SKYACTIV just kicked in 'yo!

    Yeah it has a torque converter, pero mas efficient ata yung lock up gear nun eh...So as of the moment hindi ko alam kasi hindi pa ako nakakapag-drive ng ganun. Pero kahit na dumating pa ang mga skyactive techs ng Mazda eh mag-aantay pa rin ako ng mga inputs ng mga users dito sa tsikot.Basa na rin ng reports all around the net. At syempre before buying one na talaga, test drive din ang importante.

    Siguro naman ay hindi natin pwedeng i-compare yung mga Lambos dito kasi different category talaga yun.

And niky's right. You should file a case with the DTI or the local courts. Which dealer is this by the way, so we know which one to be wary of.

    Spot on with the interest idea guys, that was exactly what I was thinking of. JackFlash, I actually put down my deposit early May, which is too far off from the June call-off. This was with Toyota Bicutan, which I chose, thinking that it would get stocks since it's directly under TMPI, and they had the first few 86 there.
