And, even though you might get an other impression reading this thread, most taxi's are perfectly fine.
I've lived on and off in Bangkok for 20 years. Let me assure that many taxis are absolute death traps and the drivers are the worst on the roads. Nearly all of the taxis are small. Most taxi drivers don't speak English.

If an airport car isn't in your budget, fine. But don't think "taxi" and "airport car" are the same product. Not even close.
