Hmmm.... 17 pages. Not bad for a simple question
Anyway, in conclusion, hopefully a final report about the nice Ford Dealership in Hua Hin.
While at sea last week, I received a text. It is time to change your red plates for white plates. Please come in on Monday.
Monday came along, and I duly went down to the showroom, thinking that I would get my 2,500 Baht deposit on the red plates back. Number plates were exchanged, and I was called to the counter. I signed the bit of paper to say that they had done the job, and waited for my cash. Eventually, I was asked how I would like my money, bank transfer or cash. Thinking I could fill up with diesel on the way home, I opted for cash. OK, please come back in 3 days - not a problem, I would be passing on the way to Makro.
Called in yesterday to collect my money. The cashier, after wading through piles of paperwork, eventually pulled out my file. Pinned to the outside was a cheque
But we were told that we would be getting cash. No, it is a cheque.
I gratefully took the cheque.
Took the cheque to the bank to pay it in this morning ............... sorry sir, they haven't written it correctly. We can not accept it.
Straight back to Ford, pointed out their error. The cashier looked at the cheque in disbelief. It took them about 30 minutes to write me another cheque
Hopefully, that is the last episode in the long, drawn out saga of how not to buy a car in Thailand. The car is still fantastic, and it was worth the trauma
