A Daewoo 'Fantasy', some irony in that title somewhere.

Sounds cheap at 55K, you'd probably get that for it if you just went to a second hand dealer and offered it to him to get rid of it. I've seen some older than that real piles of crap on the side of the road for sale for a similar price. 

I'm not in the market, but it is mind boggling how expensive second hand cars/pickups are here, even if they are obviously not worth it.

That's the reason why so many just buy new as there seems to be only a negligible difference in price between a new car and one 3 years old.

Spot on.  I've never been able to figure this one out.  In the states they use the Blue Book to determine the value of a car.

Me neither really as to why the price is so high for used cars when the car forecourts are jammed full of used cars people don't want or can't afford.

The other thing to mind about second hand cars now, and over the next 5-10 years, is that buying a used car is going to become even more perilous due to all those flood damaged vehicles from Bangkok that will find their way all over Thailand soon, as they won't be staying in the capital. They will be cleaned up and have their plates changed to provincial numbers as people might be staying away from cars with Bangkok plates in the used car market. Certainly will be 'buyer beware'.

That's exactly what's going to happen, Lebo....you might even see some vehicles sporting those red license plates.

I remember when I bought a new car for my wife from the dealership here, they asked her if I wanted the fake red license plate or the real one. I always wondered why so many new Honda accords in the city have the same red license plate number.  Don't forget....you can't drive your new car at night or even your second hand car if it has a red license plate.  That's another one I'm still trying to figure out.

And speaking of license plates...I remember when I got my driver's license....I had to take this exam on a computer at the DMV and one of the questions was, "True or false..It's okay to put a license plate on your car that was made by a friend."  Something along those lines...I was like...WTF?  What kind of question is this?

You obviously know what you are talking about and I would like to add......

I remember when I bought a new car for my wife from the dealership here, they asked her if I wanted the fake red license plate or the real one.

From what I gather the real ones (red plates) have a government stamp on them about the size of a ten baht coin on the bottom right of the plate, fake ones don't have it. Thing is though, that usually now the dealerships say deposit 3k with them and have a real red plate and get 2.5k back on the issuing of the final plate for the car (sales staff scam), or take a fake red plate for nothing and take your chances with the cops on the road.

I think that every dealership has paid for X number of real red plates and offers the choice to the buyers but I think the real red plates belong to the garage. Just a thought, but not sure 100%, more of a guess.


Don't forget....you can't drive your new car at night or even your second hand car if it has a red license plate.  That's another one I'm still trying to figure out.

I think you can now but the brown log book stipulates that you need a police officer's signature in the log book to authorise you being in a different province at night and the officer's signature has to be from the province you are currently in.....so requires you to report to a police station to get said signature in the first place. I agree, it is a completely strange way of doing it with new cars. Having said that though, it's nothing 500 baht wouldn't get you out of if you got stopped at a check point.

So, in other words or layman's terms, you are still probably right as most will not go to those lengths to be able to do it. A red plate is a magnet for the cops and extortion money on the highway.

 
I remember when I got my driver's license....I had to take this exam on a computer at the DMV........

That must have been a while ago BF, as now in Joho, they issue licenses without taking the test if you have an in-date license from your home country and only require you to provide the med certificate and do the reaction test and the depth perception/peripheral vision tests etc before giving you a license. If your license from your home country is out-of-date then they still make you do the written exam, which as you say BF, is a joke with bazaar questions left, right and center. 

The one I'll never understand here BF, is that you can buy a car without a license, drive it home and then learn to drive with it.   :uhm

You are right about the red license plate scam.  I confirmed it with my wife's best friend who used to work at the dealership where I bought the car.

I remember years ago I asked a police officer about the red license plate thing and why no driving at night.  He told me cars with the red plates get stolen more often than ones that have the white plate.....like a crook who wants to steal a car really gives a shi.t about that.

Also, you'd be surprised how many folks here don't have a driver's license let alone insurance.

Yeah, I took my exam back in 2007, and I had to because my American driver's license had expired.  I also had to go through some silly other tests....like breaking, lining up two pylon things, and a color light test.  I could hardly stop laughing through the entire computer exam because some of the questions were so amusing..For example.

True or False. "It's okay to use a friends driver license to drive a car."

My favorite:

If you are tired while driving, what should you do?

a) Take an amphetamine
b) Pull to the side of the road and take a nap
c) Drink some coffee
d) Keep your eyes moving to avoid falling asleep
