Good value or not?

Recommended Posts

I want a new diesel ute and after much research this seems to me to be the best all round value for money.

 

Mitsubishi Triton Single Cab 2.5 GL DI-D MT. Price = Thai Baht 495,000

This morning I check out both Mitsu & Isuzu dealers and now feel the D-Max Spark is a better buy. The Mitsu has increased in price to 498,000 whereas the Isuzu is 513,000 so for 15,000 Bt more the Isuzu represents better value.

 

I wanted 500,000 to be my cut off top price but I'm prepared to pay that little bit extra if needed.

Single cab utes are usually designed as working class vehicles and very basic . 

Also the single cab is very limited in taking people or even your shopping . 

 

As long as you don't want to spend over 500k the choice is limited in new cars .

I would go for a 2/3 year old extra/double cab with a bit more luxury .

Cheers Jerry, I appreciate your advice on all matters. A 2-3 yo vehicle is also on my list of possibilities, recently I've heard of a couple very good bargains when farang were going home and selling nice cars very cheap, so keeping my eye out for one of these bargains is also an option.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
