AS GOOD AS NEW

CHECKING IT OUT
EVERY THING LOOKS AND SOUNDS GOOD

STILL LOOKS LIKE NEW


NOTICE: THE POWER COATED BUMPER GUARD ON THE FRONT END, IT'S WELDED TO THE FRAME AND NOT THE BUMPER OR BODY .

OUR TRUCK IS A 2002 ISUZU D-MAX 300 DFI WITH AUTO TRANS AND POWER EVERYTHING , AND THE TIRES ARE FOR A 4-WHEEL DRIVE , A LITTLE LARGER THAN THE NORMAL TIRES FOR THE TRUCK , AND IT DRIVES AND HOLDS THE ROAD BETTER ,I THINK. IT STILL DRIVES , RIDES AND RUNS LIKE NEW , I THINK I'LL TRY FOR 7 MORE YEARS .
Yesterday morning Ciejay told me it was time to get the new, yearly sticker (tag) for our 7 year old Isuzu pick-up truck.We were going to Kanchanaburi to shop for some food items we had run out of that you can't find at our little village of Whang Pho . I told her to get all the paper work we needed and we'd stop of at the DMV on the way to Tesco. All was going well, and the line wasn't very long , we got to the window and they started to fill out the forms , when they noticed that the truck was 7 years old , they then went on to explain to Ciejay that , we would have to have it inspected to make sure it was in good shape and that everything worked , that was suppose to ,brakes ,lights ,horn,exhaust system, muffler, wipers and to my surprise the electric windows ,and I almost forgot the amount of thread on the tires. Now I was almost ready to protest ,because I have seen some of the worst looking , and running ,beat up cars and trucks,in and around our village, some look like they needed to be drove straight to the junk yard. Opps, I forgot ,there are no junk yards in Thailand that I have seen. And I know for a fact that most don't even have current stickers for their cars and trucks .Ciejay told me to calm down ,that the inspection station was just across the street and they only charged 200 baht to give your vehicle a complete check -up and the required stamp to bring back to the DMV to get you window sticker, saying you are good to go for another year.All of these stickers of course are required if you want to have insurance on you truck , which I DO .So over across the street we went and the folks there were very polite and their professional attitude, and work impressed me a lot .Also it was a good feeling to know that the old truck was as good as new ,(we passed with flying colors and got our stamp and off to the DMV we went and was issued our new stamp, all for the small price of 900 baht.) In fact most folks think it is a new truck and are suprised to hear that in fact,it is 7 years old, we got it from the original owner of 5 years , who had always had the Isuzu dealership in Kanchanaburi take care of it , and we always have them take care of it too, and I have to say that I have been driving for 45 years and have had to deal with lots of dealerships in America ,for maintainence,and service and this dealership in Kanchanaburi is one of the best I have dealt with. Getting the yearly sticker, took a little longer than I had planned , but I am happy to say we got it done and everyone was very kind and helpful.And Ciejay was proud of me for staying calm. She said "I was a good boy".

I'm sure most of you are driving RED TAGS and have never had to go thru this , and for those of you that have , did you have a good experience? drive safely and take care. Malcolm

Hi Malcolm

thats a nice looking truck, what insurance company do you use, and do you have home insurance too?

Mike said...

Hi Malcolm well I learned something early this morning since I didn't know that the Thais actually had a mechanical test.

So far I have just been to the local office and paid my 900 Baht etc.

Our truck is about the same age, so maybe we will get the same treatment next year?

Like you I am quite amazed since some vehicles you see on the roads are looking less than roadworthy!

I am also interested why second hand vehicles retain their value so well in Thailand. Any ideas?

To answer "anons" comment I use Muang Thai and yes we have home insurance too (very reasonable for 1,000,000 cover).

Talen said...

I too have seen many trucks on the road in Issan that couldn't possibly pass a mechanical test and that includes several police vehicles.

Martyn said...

Malcolm your truck really does look in mint condition and I'm sure it has many more years to run, you must of used a lot of elbow grease on it over the last two years.

The garage that done the checkover found no faults and on a falang's motor to boot...we read about what a 'scam' country Thailand is especially towards foreigners but this proves what most of us think in that Thailnd is not as bad as the picture that some folk paint.

On the red tag motors, when myself and WW rent a car we find that with the red tag ones we very rarely get stopped by police road block patrols and when we have we've never been searched. That's not been the case with our older rented cars and we come across a lot of these roadblocks with Wilai's village being not too far from the Laos border. Best wishes.

Martin in Bulgaria said...

A fine looking truck if I may say so Malcolm and puts my mud splattered Lada to shame. All credit to the owner of course. The climate must really hbelp in keeping these vehicles rust free, sometrhing that is an inherent problem in the UK.
Fond regards Martin and Galia
