Summary:

Great

Faults:

My baby car is everything I have ever wanted to drive. Everything goes smoothly and perfect. Nothing, I mean nothing went bad with my baby so far. Good speed - I will never have any problems with her. It is a pity Daewoo does not produce any more this model. Any Dacia will never be a match for my car! The Logan is the worst car ever driven!

I never intend selling it, even if I will buy another car, also. I will leave her to my children, and this is no joke. You should see her, she looks astonishing!

General Comments:

This is the car of my dreams. As a normal man, I`d had normal expectations from a car, but I fell in love with her as soon as my foot touched my baby`s pedals. It is great and extremely reliable, I will never sell it for the whole world.

Summary:

Excellent car

Faults:

The front-left electric window has broken after ~80.000km (A fault I have seen in many Cielo-s)

The 'breech fitting' had to be changed after 120.000 km.

General Comments:

Excellent car for Romanian standards. I followed all maintenance work as prescribed, and never had any engine problem before 120.000km!

The car is comfortable and still reasonably silent at high speed. It has the tendency to skid on high speed and wet road, maybe because it's quite light. Good acceleration.

The interior is quite 'bare' by today standards, but it's functional. The glove pocket rattled sometimes at high speed.

Summary:

Buy it without any doubt

Faults:

At 210 000 a circle from the left rear spring has cracked, also the fuel pump died, but because it is a remake after Kadett (a GM car), I found it very easy in Greece, where this happened. Also during these 7 years in witch I used very frequently, my radiator cracked at approximately 120 000 km.

General Comments:

At this age and kilometers the car has 99.9 % original parts. The motor is untouched ; I cleaned the injectors at 150 000 kilometers. I never had a serious problem with it. I even have the original freon (in the air conditioning system). It is a very good car.

Summary:

A reliable and easy to drive car

Faults:

My trunk's lock broke down after 5000 km.

One fuel injector, sometimes is interrupting during second and third gear changing.

Strange noises in the door panel (but that's because of the bad road here in Romania)

Problems with the air conditioning.

General Comments:

This car is a reliable car although is a pretty old model.

It's comfortable and nice to drive on long distances, but don't exceed 140 km per hour, it becomes unsafe and loses stability when brake is pushed.

It's a beautiful car and I love it cause it offers a lot of things that my old Dacia Nova couldn't even dream.

General Comments:

This car is very comfortable for Romanian roads, and gives me a very pleasant drive. It cannot be the sportiest car on the road, but I can travel comfortably at 120-130 km/h when I get to open it up out on a country road. It is good on the petrol as well (11 liter/100 km in city and 7 l outside).
