Great Auto/Truck Repair-Udon-Please Read...

Post by docta » December 18, 2008, 7:13 am

Hi Fella’s,

I’m making a plea for my very good friend SomChai, owner of; “Somchai’s Auto”.

SomChai previously located behind D2 in the Complex area was forced to move recently due to the newly planned construction.

I’ve known SomChai for 6 years, and right off the bat found him to be a uniquely qualified and mild mannered all purpose cool car guy.

SomChai is a deserving family man, and certainly could use a leg up in this very poor economy which is forcing many small businesses to the brink of extinction.

If Somchai doesn’t get a bit of help with business from our Farang community soon, his business is likely to be hitting the skids in a couple months, as well.

I know holidays are coming up and many of you won’t be thinking of car/truck stuff.

However, please, take a moment to check out SomChai’s qualifications, and how he may assist you with your car/truck repairs, and or, upgrades.

Even taking a shot assisting SomChai at the possible twilight of his business, is better than no shot at all.

Thanks,
Doc

Recent customer feedback;

Oct 19, 2008 - udonmap

I found it today !!!!

I admit I am not the brightest light bulb on the Christmas tree, but the only FORD dealer I knew about was the one outside the city a few clicks out of town on your way to KK. I have been driving that road to KK a few times in the last week looking for Somchai's place (next to the FORD dealer) without success.

Duh !! There are two FORD dealers in Udon.

I revisited Udon map and read Doc's directions again and found the place.

I had some electrical work done on the old piece of farm equipment I own and the staff was pleasant as usual and the prices were fair in my opinion.

I don't mind paying a little more if the work is done properly and with Somchai's experience in automobiles & trucks overlooking his staff; I felt that the work was done properly.

Not sure what his experience is with brand new cars & trucks but if you have an older model that needs things repaired or replaced like Stereos/tint/lights/electrical/exhaust etc.etc, Somchai is the man to see.

I forget to ask if this shop does oil changes. Does anyone know?

And, no I have no financial interest in the place.... I wish I did.

Note: Not all accessory displays are up for viewing, yet.
However, inventory not being displayed currently is available for viewing & consideration; all you need do is ask Somchai what it is you’re interested in.

Took my Toyota Mighty X in today,oil & filters changed a couple of bits of trim renewed and 1 bit secured,they did a general check over & the usual bits of oiling & greasing,informed me that the brake pads would need replacing soon.

Bill = 1535 bht parts & labour which was very favourable to prices i've paid in the past for similar work.
Very pleasant & polite people, I will certainly give Somchai my business in the future. :D :D :D :D :D

Looks as though Somchai's packing up inventory.

I'm sure if you hurry, good deals will abound.

Up to you...

I found this old post for Somchai auto repair and wondering if this place is still in business and is still recommended by any forum members. I need some repair work on my ford pickup, aircon and brakes.

Hi Carlos,

I've know Somchai for approx 14 years, he's now managing Bosch above.
Has numerous auto/ truck connections around town; good guy to know we always use him when in need.

Good luck,
Doc
