Top 5 Best Cars Under $10,000 in Cambodia

Many car owners in Cambodia are fan of used car imported from oversea like USA. Make sure you check the car history report before buying any car to use as it helps you to save money as well as preventing from unexpected accident. Get the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) located  under the front glass above the steering wheel side.

You can find car history checking service cost starting from $6 and you're going to say wow, this is not expensive at all. Yes, you are right this is not expensive which I recommend it to all my friends and people whom I knew they are going to buy used car. 

According to my recent research, the used car which is popular importing to Cambodia manufacture between 1999 to 2003.

Here is a list of car under $10,000 and very fuel

1- 2000 Toyota Camry or under is very well made with good space for family usage. This is a 5 seats Sudan car where consuming between 8 litters to 10 litters per 100km.

2- 2000 Toyota Rav4 is another economical car that you can see this car running on the road in Cambodia. The spar part is also easy to find from the garage or used car market.

3- 2000 4Runner to me is bit strange design however, it is one of the most attractive due to the price where most people can only afford car under this cost.

4- 2000 Honda CR-V is among the outstanding car with less fuel consumption. That's why people like to use it.

5- 1996 Mitsubishi Montero where you can use this car for offroad in Cambodia as well as for long distance drive from different location in the province. The price is much more affordable than the previous four cars above costing between $5000 to $7000 with more seat at the 3rd row.  

Tips: Check if the mileage or km is less between 95k to 150k consider to be a quality secondhand car. Good luck to you!
