chinese petrol engine seems to work very well

are the spare parts simply to find?
and what you can say about the rust and corrosion?
engine is suzuki based f10a engine, for now we don't have any complains about engines, according to new plan from dfm i think new 1.0 gasoline engine with 51 kw will be enough, temporary in offer are 1.1 with 38 kw and 1.3 with 63, i think 63 kw is too much for such small truck, in italy there is quite big dealerships network so i am sure that there is no problems with spare parts

about spare parts, there is no problems with them, usually we got basic service parts on stock, while all order we order thru dhl, air cargo or sea order, depend how many spare parts we order

about rust and corrosion, personally i would like to buy plastic cargo-liner protection, like you can buy for pick up's,in last two year i drive many goods which damage my cargo area,but it still look ok after such hard usage, also there can be better protection at some connecting parts, but as i got information from new versions all is updated, by list which i got there is over 100 changes on the vehicles

with suspensions there is also no problem, for now i don't need to replace shock absorbers, semi-axles or something else, it's good only to replace chinese tires with better quality one

Re: Introducing; Dongfeng Yu'an

Here you can check out and see what we are doing in the Channel Islands.

Genuine DFSK Islander Minivans - i have had my demo vehicle for 6 months now and it is very very good, considering the low price.

It has run faultlessly and starts and stops every day !

It is just like a Suzuki Carry.

We are placed outside the UK and EU and can import / export at tax free prices.

Dongfeng minitruck starts production in Thailand

Dongfeng Xiao Kang, a well-known minitruck model of China, has been put into mass production in Thailand to address rising local demand, the company announced on Thursday.

The factory, located in Gateway Industrial Estate in Cha Choeng Sao province, is estimated to produce 5,000 units of minitrucks per year, Pitaya Tanadamrongsak, managing director of DFM minitruck (Thailand), Dongfeng Motor's exclusive dealer in the country.

He made the remarks after sealing a loan deal worth 1 billion baht ($3.2 million) with Kasikorn Bank.

The factory aims to enhance productivity and meet rising market demand, he said, estimating that the sales of Dongfeng minitruck this year would reach 3000 units, a rise of 90 percent from 2011.

The establishment of a production base in Thailand would also fulfill the DFM's desire to expand business across the wider ASEAN market, according to Patchara Samalapa, executive vice president of Kasikorn Bank in charge of the SME Division.

"When the ASEAN Economic Community is completed in 2015, Dongfeng minitrucks, while based in Thailand in terms of production, can be exported freely to other ASEAN countries like Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, Malaysia, etc," he said.

Apart from DFM, other China-based auto-makers like Cherry and Lifan are also preparing or considering switching from importing to production in Thailand. But it seems to be a long way to go. Statistics provided by Kasikorn Bank reveal that despite a 52 percent year-on-year increase in sales last year, Chinese cars only account for 0.4 percent of the Thai market.
