Cars are more expensive than USA - though I am out of touch w/US prices, I am going to guess that you could pay 40% more here...

But I just wanted to add a note about buying used. Be careful. Thai have big families and if a product has life they will either give it away to family or sell it at a good rate... family gets first shot - if it is a piece of junk with problems, then it gets sold used as nobody wants it...

Note that there are no garage sales and such here...

My friends who have been looking used, often end up buying new.

Cars in Thailand retain value as sellers refuse to drop the price. In the U.S., you typically lose 50% of a brand new car by driving it off the lot. Not so here. As well, a few years back the mental midgets decided to put 1,000,000 new cars on the road by offering ridiculously low prices and easy financing. As a result, many people defaulted on their loans and the market was glutted with desperation sales. I have a friend who is an auto dealer in Pattaya, 160 kilometers away, and his business has suffered greatly due to this idiot move.

ALL electronics are overpriced here, but TV's are still affordable if you shop around.
