    Car bursts into flames as the new owner drives home after buying it

    A 28 year old man who bought a second-hand car in the central province of Angthong got the shock of his life when the vehicle burst into flames as he was driving it home. The Pattaya News reports that Charaswit Bank was driving his just-purchased second hand Honda Civic home to Sattahip, in the eastern district of Chon Buri, when it caught fire.


    Itís understood the car began to develop engine problems in the Don Hua Lo sub-district of Chonburi, causing Charaswit to pull over to the side of the road. The engine trouble quickly turned into smoke pouring out of the engine bay, then flames. The fire then spread quickly consuming the rest of the car. Firefighters were on the scene promptly and took about 10 minutes to extinguish the blaze. There wasnít much left by the time firefighters had put out the fire.


    Itís understood Charaswit paid 55,000 baht for the used car and now intends to take the matter up with the previous owner.

    in the thai used car market you certainly wont get much for 55000 baht, as the above news item confirms, and certainly not enough to guarantee a trouble free journey from ang thong to sattahip.

    he should have checked the condition of the fuel hoses before his journey.

    now intends to take the matter up with the previous owner.
    hope he's got enough bus fare.

    Some guy on here bought a nice second hand Mazda 2, that he showed off for a whole week whilst learning that coolant is more essential than wiper wash fluid
