Focus Takes Place of Matrix At Pacific

The staff at Pacific Rent A Car would like to apologize to all of our customers who were eagerly awaiting the new Hyundai Matrix vehicles we announced bringing into our hire selection. We have recently received word from Hyundai that there is currently a one month delay on all new models rolling out of the production plants and that we would not have them at the end of May 2009 as we originally promised.

“This is a small setback for Pacific and while we know that many of our regular customers in and out of Cyprus were looking forward to and had already made reservations for the new Matrix, we simply cannot put them in a car hire we don’t have. But we are able to offer all of our customers the new Ford Focus vehicle we have purchased in place of the delayed Hyundai’s,” stated Sue, our reservation manager.

We are going to be adding five Ford Focus’ instead of five Hyundai Matrix's. Both vehicles are comparable in style, gas mileage, and seating. The Focus is part of our ‘Comfort Car Hire’ division and they are great for families with small children. You can comfortably seat three adults and two children in the Focus or two adults and two children with baby seats. If you need a baby seat, let us know when you book your Ford Focus. We have a limited supply available.

Like the Matrix which is also in this division, the Ford Focus’ we will be receiving are all equipped with power steering, electric front windows, airbags, anti-lock brake systems, and central door locking mechanisms. They all use standard unleaded petrol and we recommend that you ask in advance for a manual or automatic transmission if you have a preference.

Huseyin Ocal, our current car tester and co-founder of Pacific, stated in response to the situation, “The Ford Focus is a reliable family vehicle that is great on gas and big on comfort. We have had a lot of customers compliment us on our selection of Focus’ for our fleet, and there was no hesitation on my part to recommend replacing the delayed Matrix with the Focus in preparation for our busy summer rental season.” The Focus’ will be joining the Matrix, the Opel Astra and the Fiat Grande Punte in our fleet.

We would like to remind our customers that we offer advance booking services and that our vehicles cannot be taken out of North Cyprus. Additionally, we do offer airport service and can meet your plane with one of our new Ford Focus’ when you arrive.
