New Car Purchase

Recommended Posts

Depends on what you want, I drove my Isuzu Dmax out of the yard on the same day and they still seem to have plenty at their Airport intersection branch.

Surprisingly they are the same price they were 3 years ago, 800,000.

There seems to be an abundance of pick ups Scea

but a lack of quality small sedans/hatches.

I think Toyota and Honda are better stocked but

the newer models just seem to fly out the door.

Regards

Will

For a couple of years I drove around in a Ford Fiesta.

Never had any problems with it and with a simple

screwdriver you could solve most problems.

Anybody wants a review?

What surprises me most is the power of the 1200 cc

three cylinder engine in the Nissan March.

The 1400 of the Fiesta doesn't offer much more.

I think that the March is a very nice car for the city,

easy to park etc etc and fun to drive. I like it,

it breathes 'understatement'.

And very good quality on top of it!

Folksam, the Swedish insurer, rates its safety rather

good after this Achilles heel was addressed.

Those among us that are 'poorly endowed' and seek

imaginary compensation for that, will have to look for

another alternative: It is not an impressive car.

So my dear McGriffith, I would say: "Go for it!"

It is roughly 100.000 to 125.000 Baht cheaper than

comparable cars and as economic as it is that pays

for gasoline for three years at least.

The Ford Fiesta is more a kind of 'girly' car, nothing

for a guy like you 555!

Proton have a low tax due to free trade agreement between Thailand and Malaysia.

Partner bought an Exora, it's a flashy 1.6 MPV for the price. ฿750,000

Checkout other models, tax is the biggest killer in car imports.

Dear Willy,

How does one notice the difference between a gentleman and an ordinary man?

When the wind blows off the hat of an ordinary man he will run after it.

Does it happen to a gentleman, then he will quietly walk after it.

I have met Mr. McGriffith, so I don't think it will be a problem for him to wait a while.

Wonder if two or three buyers were to go in at one time, would they get a better deal or would this be irrelavant to the Thai car dealer mentality.

At your request:

A gentleman is a person who never would use an expression like 'smart arse'.

I never used the expression, not in my thoughts and accordingly not

on a public forum either, as I simply didn't even know the meaning of it.

I looked it up in the Cambridge Dictionary.

My interpretation is that this expression is most often used by those who

feel themselves confronted with their own ignorance and seek a way to canalize

their frustration about it towards the person or persons that, willingly or not,

remind them about it. :whistling:

Interesting also to read that the spelling used by Willy 'arse' points in

the direction that he went to school in the UK. If he would have been

American he might have used the word 'ass'. Also that I derived from the

Cambridge Dictionary. Very interesting!

In case there are still some Thai readers left on the forum: the words

'arse' and 'ass' refer to the body part you sit on.

The word is widely used, but it is slang, comparable with the Thai word 'tood',

also not directly a word that you would use at the dinner table.

I think that I speak on behalf of many of us when I say thanks to Mr. Willy for

the enrichment of our English. :jap:

A lot of us flangs drive Pickups because we need pickups. I know potholes that would swallow a Nissan march or Toyota Vios!

.

If you live in the City maybe you need a City Car.

Back home I'd drive a sort of Truck also , because I happened to need it.

I do agree with you about the 'Power of Pussy' though wandrinstar :D

Oh, Limbo. The Buildings on Fire ...... No running Now its un-gentlemanly . :)

Oh, and I guess I occasionally feel myself confronted by my own ignorance and seek a way to canalize my frustration about it towards the person or a person that, willingly or not,

remind me about it. :D

At this point, I would think we all have to be admit being ignorant of something. I certainly couldn't build a space shuttle with the knowledge that I currently possess.

I am sure that having to look up "smart arse" in the dictionary is also considered being confronted by your own ignorance. I wouldn't have guessed that any English speaker, first language or not, over the age of 12, would not know what that expression means and when to use it. However, that term is usually used against an opponent in a friendly manner, when we have been "shown up" by said opponent. The term used to describe an opponent who has been "shown up" by us is "dumb arse". But don't go look it up in the dictionary. It should be self-evident if you have already looked up "smart arse" AND you have common sense.

The good news is, I won't be needing my own personal space shuttle in the near future. The better news is, I will be running across a few smart <deleted> and dumb <deleted> in my daily routines until the day I die. Again, a little less formal education and a little more experience will carry the day. It is a good thing to be on par with, and in the company of, common men and women.

I always thought that the British expression "looking for a piece of arse" never sounded quite the same as the Americanism "looking for a piece of ass". B)
