Sounds like the one I had in Arkansas back in November.

Had a Buick Convertible with over 40k on it from LAS.

It was pretty beat, but had brand new Michelin tires on it.

Swapped a Versa at GSO and was offered an 18 Elantra with 38,500 miles with California tags. Took the Elantra and was like night and day.

Only a few small chips and some minor rattling when going over bumps. Interior was spotless as always when renting in Thailand. Goes to show how long cars can last with better upkeep.
How do Thai people take such good care of their cars?

Cheap labor and the fact that new cars are expensive. Staff is 2-3 USD an hour while a new CR-V is near US$50k. Might as well invest more in making the car last longer.

100k+ miles shouldn't be a challenge for a Toyota, Honda, or Isuzu. Meanwhile in North America, I've seen cars like a Volvo S90 with several thousand miles have interior trim pieces falling off already before even mentioning the common occurrence of getting a dirty car.

100+k miles should not be a challenge for any car :-)
I've seen 1980s taxi Mercs in Morocco that had only 30k on the odometer, and when asked the taxi driver told me the analog odometer had already gone full circle
