Comfy, outdated and bad quality
A lot went wrong with the Espero. I drive it carefully and maintain it well.
66.000km Wet safety belt after rain (never solved this problem)
70.000km rear spring broke.
75,000km Mechanics of wipers worn
80.000km Belt tensioner of generator belt making noise (never really solved despite three attempts. One needs to remove the front wheel suspension for that...).
88.000km Generator broke down
95.000km Air conditioner compressor torn
99.000km Five light switches in one year. High beam continued burning.
105.000km Trunk could not be closed because of faulty lock.
107.000km front wheel bearing struts worn. spare was faulty, had to be repaired twice.
110.000km Head gasket blew.
110.000km Heater has a life of its own (never really solved, despite de-airing the system three times).
110.000km Second thermostat.
The car is very comfortable, cheap and spacious. Fuel economy is average, engine is a bit sluggish. It is an Opel/Vauxhall engine designed in the late seventies or early eighties a bit improved to meet emission standards.
Most of all, the quality of the Daewoo Espero, at least mine, is horribly bad!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
