I’m considering buying a vehicle or motorcycle here in Thailand. Can some genuine, wise and knowledge people please give some friendly advise of the hidden pitfalls and necessary steps to take. E.g. the pros or cons are of putting the ownership in your name or your wife’s name. The advantages and disadvantages of purchasing either new or old in Thailand (other than the obvious) , buying privately versus from a dealer, the buyers protection or rights? For the benefit of sincere dialogue could any self proclaimed comedians please refrain.
