New Car Purchase

Recommended Posts

Four door Isuzu D-Max are still under 900,000, call into Isuzu on the Super Highway just north of the airport turn off for a look. They have an SUV model which is a bit more.

Their service is excellent, have a look at the service area out the back before you decide to buy.

I bought the new mazda BT50 Pro and its the best vehicle I have ever bought. I change my vehicles every two years(get a good trade in price) and this one might stay with me a bit longer. I can rave on about it but all I can say its the best. You only have to look on the road now as they are everywhere and Sintanee say they have many orders outstanding.

The motoring folk at Bangkok Post agree with you as it was number 1 in a recent test, I have the Ranger which is built in the same factory and very happy with it.

That's interesting, I'll confess i struggle a little with the concept of Mazda as hard working ute/truck.... to me they seem to be locked into my mind as itty bitty cars that went like the clappers.

I guess that just goes to show how hard it is to reshape the image of a brand, once it is established. Can’t put my finger on it but I too would have a hard time choosing Mazda over another more popular brand. I would be worried about resale if nothing else.

Well it took a while but I finally took delivery of my nice new flash car.

Not the colour I would have choosen but at least everyone will see me and be envious.

Now I am looking for a big house that I can park it in.

Any mansions for sale around Chiang Rai?

Why would anyone be envious of a 'car' that does (at most) 13.5mpg...?? (source: here)

If that was my car back in the UK, I'd be bankrupt after a few full tanks...! whistling.gif

Indeed, it may even be cheaper to just buy a new car if it came with a tank of fuel than refill the old on. laugh.png

Well, as a postscript to my earlier comments eons ago- I ended up buying a Honda Brio eco-car.

Wanted to buy a Nissan March, but all the dealers here in CM gave me a minimum 2 month delivery date.

Went to all the Honda dealers here, and at one saw a blue one, the up market model (all the bells and whistles).

Bought it, and am happy as a clam. 508,500 out the door price (plus insurance and DLT registration).

Went on a little road trip last week (CM to CR to Thaton, Fang, Chiang Dao) and the car handles like a go-kart.

Did a little day loop trip from Chiang Dao to Wiang Haeng, got caught in a torrential downpour (trees down, trucks off the road, etc.) and the little Honda came through with flying colors.

Four days on the road, and not once was passed by any vehicle...not bad for a 1200cc eco-car. thumbsup.gif

curious what kiind of gas mileage does it get?

Almost exactly 20 km/l.

And this was driving at a brisk pace.

I know I am repeating myself, but overall I am very pleased with this car.

Build quality is top notch, doors close with a solid thunk, and the engine does not seem to strain at all.

On Hwy 1 coming into Chiang Rai, I was cruising at 140 km/hr effortlessly. rolleyes.gif
