Best value for money


I got some funny noises from my breaks so my dealer replaced both break-disks under warranty.

General Comments:

Like Hyundai Accent and KIA Rio, Lanos looks like German cars from mid '90s.

I like plenty of room in cabin and large trunk, good performance for 1.5 SOHC and low noise (except noisy Hankook tyres). I don't like tiny entrance on back doors.

Low price brings old fashioned engine, lower quality of interior plastic and lack of features like power windows, power steering, central lock, ABS and airbags on S model, but $7500 for new car...

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
