1997 Daewoo Cielo GLX 1.5 DOHC


Worth every cent I paid for it


When I just bought it, the entire clutch had to be repaired.

I managed to overheat the engine (still wondering why and how this happened...)

The high voltage wiring to the distribution rotor was burned.

I noticed that a holder under the engine was broken; this seems to be a common repair, according to the mechanic.

The "check engine" light went on today.

General Comments:

I am very happy with the general performance of the car, but maintenance is now a serious issue, when it comes to money. However I would rater repair it because you cannot get this comfort, space and performance for the price. Originally, I paid some US$6,000. Now, the US dollar exchange rate went down, so it would be some US$8,500.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
