I often do trips thru thailand and Laos an just cause i will be moving to Cambodia, doesn't mean i will give up my trips.

Kinda of crazy to say, "Don't buy a car in Cambodia. You won't need it"

we all have different wants/desires/needs
Well, I can assure you than some Cambodian roads are far better than portions of the 5 freeway. The problem is, the roads are too narrow. One lane going in each direction isn't really efficient especially with cracked out bus/ truck drivers driving like it's an episode of Wacky Races, buffaloes crossing the road, kids playing on the road and potholes the size of Mia Khalifa's asshole. The risks associated with driving in Cambodia outweigh the benefits. Who wants to end up on CEO "Barang ran over little Panha and is now asked to pay $10k to the family". That's $20k for a totaled Camry plus $10k for a get out of jail free card. That's one expensive lemon if you ask me.

But indeed, to each their own.
How much is the Avanza?
I didn't check recently, but I vaguely remember around 20k.

It’s closer to $35k for the Avanza or Rush.

Looks steep to me with a new Vigo pickup starting at 40 something.

I believe that there is less tax on the pickups.
