"Bought last summer with a broken headlight and crunched hood. Price was right and I priced the parts. Seemed like a good buy but parts were hard to actually find even though various resellers supposedly had them. Finally got it fixed up and 3000 miles later I find out that the bearing is going out in the transmission. $1000 estimate. Check engine light was on, need 2 sensors $500 more. Decided to look at trading it and even without telling them about the tranny max trade $1500. Some dealers wouldn't even give me a price. Very disappointed. With only 87000 miles I never expected these problems."

"We bought this car new in 01 and never had a problem out of it. When my daughter went out of town for work, it just sat in our drive for a couple years, so we sold it to a man who fixes them up and sells them. As far as I know this little Daewoo is still rolling around town today. If I was looking for a little, economical vehical to get around town and make short trips with (to the beach, etc.) I would definately buy another one! You can't beat the value!"

"Absolutely love this car, its great on turns and really fun. Its really cheap but parts are hard to find if you have problems with the car. I love the way it looks and how small it is, I can always fit into spots where most people cant. Driving it is a lot of fun and whenever I have friends in the car they cant stop telling me how comfortable it is even in the back! It has a huge trunk that can fit about anything you want. P.S. REALLY GREAT ON GAS!"

"Owned it for nearly 10 years now and only needed brake shoes pads and rotors once, a battery, and the O ring for the thermostat housing, just the O ring. Never left me stranded, not once. Never stalled, even in hard rain and flooded streets. Much bigger inside than it appears, plenty leg and head and shoulder room - I'm 6 feet tall. Bad - cheap interior fabric, cheap plastic door handles, lots of plastic inside, slow windshield wipers - get rainex, ..... lots of little stuff. But over all pleased with the purchase and lots of carefree miles. Do change that timing belt and related pulleys every 60K mi. Just selling the car to a friend next week. It will have a third life with that family."
