My wife bought the Woo in 2000 a few months before we got married. The Woo has taken us all over America, and has got us through 4 years with our first child. We have another on the way so my wife will get a new vehicle and I am going to use the Woo for work. We had a few issues that had to be fixed while under warranty. Nothing major though. Once the warranty ran out the AC went out. That was 1,000 dollars. The rear window motor went out for a total of 60.00. The head gasket seal is leaking so I have to replace it. All in all the Woo was not the best car, but the engine runs great and the transmission is fine. The Woo will never over take my toyota pickup that I have had since I was 17 and I am 29 at the moment, with over 260,000 miles. NO problems ever out of the TOyota. IF the Woo ever goes I will have good Memories. 140,000 Miles so far. Will update if it makes a quarter of a million."
"I purchased this car in early 2000. I received the entire 3 years of full service warranty. They fixed an emission sensor under warranty. There was a recall on the car but i never took mine in because i had no problem with the car at all.
I've done the regular maintenance and upkeep. Replaced the oil gasket three years ago. ( found the parts on the internet and had them shipped to my door) It maueuvers well, respond immediately...and you got to love that little power button for extra speed. Presently at 91,500 miles and had to replace a cam shaft sensor because the check engine light stayed on constantly. Local mechanic got the part and is doing the work as I write this review.
My car is roomy and I use it for business travel all over my state of Maryland. I use synthetic oil and change it at regular intervals. Lost one side of my cup holder and the thin metal chrome has gradually peeled away from my interior door catches.
I chose this car because of her anti-lock brakes, the leather enterior, the spacious trunk, and of course the gas mileage expense for business. I've never been disappointed with it. Even now with gas prices over three dollars; it doesn't hurt too bad to fill it up. Originally, I considered purchasing the Volvo wagon made in 2000 but found they look very similar yet my Daewoo cost a lot less and had similar amenities.
My plan is to keep the car until it becomes an antique vehicle refurburshing it as needed. I got some great Daewoo logo items from the company for reviewing the car when I first got it.
Lots of folks advised me to dump the car when the company when bankrupt but I felt it was worth keeping. Anybody looking to dump a blue 2000 Nubira, I would love to have it for spare parts over time. I love my Daewoo ....Yes, I do!!!"
