Back on the serious side, how about one of those Tico's for a cheap car.

Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Those BMW Isettas aren't cheap anymore! I remember "Bubble Cars" going for a song back in the 70s.

What? You guys can give me shit, but I can't give it back?

It was a simple question. Are any of these cheap cars better than the others?

cars in cambodia are not maintained properly and the cheaper the car the worse they are

before they are even owned they come from dubious sources and are written off in accidents or other damage,like water damage.the khmers are experts at making a heap look like a minter.bit like putting lipstick on a pig.

ticos are always pieces of shit no matter if they are owned by khmer or a barang! :o

if you pay less than $3k for a car then you will always have issues with it.if u dont have any mechanical knowledge or know someone who does (not khmer) then dont buy one.if you have never driven in cambodia then be very careful.

the small cars are all shit for longer journys and you will get bullied by anything bigger than a cat!

I've driven in Cambodia enough to know the ropes. This car is just for around town. If I need to head out on the highway, I'll rent a big beast. If we end staying longer than a few months, I'll get something better.

Thanks for the tip on the Tico. I'll be sure to give it a miss.

As someone else said, Ticos are that much. A Visto is minimum $2500-3000. I wouldn't buy a car for city commuting but that's me.
