    Well that sucks, the seizures and not being able to drive bit.

    That really is some incredibly low mileage also. Good luck with the sale.

    Ours is 2012 done 30k you must have used it once a month at 5,069k, we only go to the shops in ours. It would be a good buy if a little less.

    With that sort of service record and mileage, you should be asking more.

    BTW...why new tyres when it's hardly even run-in?

    The original tyres would have been out of date.

    Put it in Thai Visa classifieds and I think you'd be able to sell such a good conditioned car easily.

    Sorry to hear about your seizures. A friend had the same thing happen in Australia and while his Missus could drive him around during the week, not being able to ride his beloved and highly customized Harley on the weekends any more was the hardest part to accept for him. And yeah, he sold the bike.

    You don't know about tire expiration dates?

    Tires have an expiration date of 6 years.



    Current guidance suggests that tires should be expected to last a maximum of only six years.

    the seizures were a worry,but the bigest problems i had was the medication the doctor prescribed knowing my history,yet she [doctor] wouldnt take any notice although i went along with what she was giving me [5months] then it was time for me to remove the mouth clamps and kick her into touch.yes that worked,so as we have been reading that some hospital staff dont care a fyk.every one of us that live here BE WARNED.
    as for cyrille asked about the crockery yes i fell and just missed a complete 1970 set of willow pattern china.

    Now you have the seizures under control with meds, just carry on driving. You will be no worse than 90% of the Somchai muppets on the road.

    With your low mileage you will rarely be a danger to others or yourself. Judy saying like.

    Good look with the sale and hope the condition does not hinder your lifestyle too much.

    thanks for your reply,seizures are so far under control,its 16months now since the last fit,but driving on these roads could bring an end to life as it is.so I am happy to have someone else take the STRESS.had a few interested in the car but I found out they were dealers trying to CON the wife saying its only the basic model, and they thought she had no brain,only offering around 260k.

    I'm in the process of trading in an old '06 Hilux Vigo 3.0 lit 4 dr for a new truck.
    The dealer took a look at it and told me the trade-in value is 170-180k. Never turned the engine on or checked the mileage.
    WTF? He claimed the value is based on the year model alone and it didn't matter if the mileage was 150k or 500k.

    I'm OK with that offer, as it's very nearly 25% of the price I paid for it new in '06, but the logic escapes me.

    ^^ The logic is that the clock is so likely to have been tampered with that it has ceased to be a factor.

    Fair point, so the OP is similarly at a loss in selling a low-km used car -- the mileage on his car even more unbelievable.

    i looked at what was advertised on,ONE2CAR.COM mostly all dealers and so called same models with very high mileage,all around 350k,bht-399k 2012.
    and when you look at photo's the kits are diff.the wheels,seats,most are copies with mileage suspect.
    had a look at toyota sure,most were in the 400k.bracket but they were the original TRD.SPORTIVO MODELS.
    the wife went to their show room oct.2018 they said,the mileage doesnt count,the car could have been made in 2011,but they did offer 275k.
    we sold 3cars that we had bought new in the uk.all had very low mileage the last one was a 6yr.old vaux.with only 11,000 on the clock.sold within 2days of advertising.
    it does make you think,the price for a new car is toooooooooooooooo high yet when you want to part ex.like when we wanted to ex.for a new yaris last yr.someone else went to a big Toyota dealer,SAME OFFER 275K
