2001 Daewoo Lanos
The radiator and timing belt blew within a week of each other. The catalytic converter failed the week before that.
This car was the worst driving experience of my life.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

You bought a cheap car that was nine years old and had 100K miles, and it broke down?
The only cars to buy at that mileage and age are:
Lincoln Town Car
Any Japanese, German or Swedish car would be in excellent condition at that age, as long as it had been serviced.
I've driven Volvo 240s with over 300,000 miles that had no problems.
A car should still work perfectly with 100,000Km on the clock.
One of my friends had a 1990 Toyota Celica GT4 for 21 years. It was still like new when she sold it with over 300,000Km on the odometer.
MILES not kilometers, & these days ANY decent vehicle that has been serviced & cared for reasonably well should easily reach 100,000 miles & beyond.
I sold my 1995 Jeep Wrangler Sport with over 140,000 miles on the clock three years ago, and it looked & ran like new, didn't leak or burn any oil. Of course it was equipped with the bulletproof 4.0 liter inline six. However having been in the car business for nearly 40 years, we saw many cars with well over 100,000 miles come in that looked & ran flawlessly.
With advances in technology, 100,000 miles isn't the benchmark anymore, it's more like 40,000 or 50,000 miles in the old days when I started driving.
"A car should still work perfectly with 100,000Km on the clock."
Well, one should hope so -- that's barely more than 62,000 MILES.
