This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Will an OBDII scanner pick up most of the major problems? Or do the diagnostics get disabled on the rebuild?
That and a carfax or other service to pick up accident history should help a long way in letting the buyer beware.
In Texas, totaled cars get a salvage title. Just means unsafe to drive in Texas. Perfectly safe for Cambodia.
Which takes us back to the dilemma of vehicles being sold as salvage but rebuilt and sold in Cambodia. Jurisdictions are only able to make and enforce laws within their own borders. What is statutory rape in Texas is a common practice in Pakistan. Using a VIN number from a car there are many internet search applications that will sell you the car's history, especially cars that have been registered in advanced western countries such as the USA. Caveat Emptor, used car salesman have a bad reputation worldwide and for a reason.
