Wish you luck. I have one myself, very reliable. My mechanic says he loves working on them, so easy to service.

“Minor body damage” and “excellent condition” are completely contradictory.

 

This is what I would expect for “excellent condition”

You may be comparing apples and marbles. The ad you quote is a manual transmission. It also depends on whether the OP's vehicle is the J, E, G or S model.

I’m just referring to general condition.  We don’t even know the year of the OP’s car nor do we have photos of the interior or even any decent photos at all.  All I can see is a badly scuffed front bumper cover and a chewed up wheel.

 

Poor, Fair, Good, Very Good, Excellent

 

I’m being generous calling the one in the ad excellent.  Probably closer to very good.

That car (from what we can see in the one photo) is “fair” at best.

Personally, I'm not all that worried about cosmetics. I'm more interested in whether the engine, gearbox and transmission is sound. In both cases, no way of knowing if the odometer has come back about 100 K clicks. It's a national sport here.

2004 or 2005 I forget which. They only used that shape headlight for one year. 

( It has a kink in it at the bottom compared to the preceding and following models)

 

Personally I prefer a manual transmission since in the provinces you don't really need an automatic and it makes repairs cheaper.

Excellent car for Thailand, good price. Dashcam is a real bonus in this lawless Africa style driving environment.

I’m more likely to believe the odometer if the rest of the car is in excellent (original) condition both inside and out.

I'm more inclined to believe in compression tests and exhaust gas analysers.

Excessive price for a 15 years old car ;

In Europe for a similar car of the same age , if you pay 35.000 baht ( 1,000 euros ), it's a maximum .

 

Yes, we aren't in Europe..

But in Europe you cannot see all these parking lot full of second hand cars as we see in Thailand because the owners of these cars have eyes bigger than their stomach and try to sell second-hand an old wreck at the price of new

the same old dribble about car prices in Thailand.
