Pros: "Great Price & Cheap to Drive"

Cons: "No Cup Holders, Not a Luxury Car"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"I have owned my Daewoo for three years and consider it a great car for the price. It gets good gas mileage and is in good condition. I've done regular maintenance on my vehicle so, it may be in better shape than others. If you can't drive an expensive, or new car, this car fits the bill."

Pros: "Drives Good and Good On Gas"

Cons: "Parts Hard To Find"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 3

"Bought new Daewoo Lanos in December 2002 with 116 miles. The car drove well and was good on gas. Timing Belt had to be changed every 60,000 miles per dealer. I had timing belt changed at 60,000 miles. I did not change it at 120,000 miles and timing belt broke costing $1,000 to repair Cylinder Head - This happened August 2007. This car still drove very well but, as time went by, I needed replacement parts ( radiator, water pump, coolant jug, etc)for the car and I could not find parts at local Auto Parts stores. I had to order parts online from Genesis Auto Parts and Parts Train. Soon parts were not available at Parts Train. Car was in accident in 2012 and declared total with estimate of 213,000 miles."

"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!"
