1999 Daewoo Lanos 1.5 86hp


Good bargain


Nothing, oh, except two crashes, which weren't my fault, other drivers crashed into me, my local dealer repaired the car in 10 days (excellent!). I even got the spare in use - Leganza.

General Comments:

Good engine, reliable,

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

1999 Daewoo Lanos 3 door S 1.5


Winner, bargain


Needs new springs as the originals are too soft and lowering the car with new springs!

Closing the doors underestimates the car as the sound of it is terrible.

General Comments:

Original design, grows to your heart! Many people can't stand Daewoo's for their origin!

I love my Lanos, it's quite quick, roomy, seats are made of good material.

It needs alloy 15' wheels!

Otherwise the PERFECT CAR.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I've put over 13.5k miles on my Lanos 3-door. I bought the base model (S?). Steel wheels, no a/c, decent stereo, etc. This is my first new car. I really like it! First thing I got for it was a K&N air filter. Later, I did a Mobil-1 synthetic oil change. The only problem I've had is the headlights... first the pass. side, then the drivers side. The dealer did a "band-aid" fix while they waited for new headlamps. I haven't gone back to get them as I had replaced both healamps myself before I took it in. Anyway, not a bad car, though I'm disappointed that it has no front anti-sway bar. 105hp from the twin-cam 1.6L is decent enough. I, too have noticed that I have to adjust my seat every so often. Well, what can I say? I'd like to see a better aftermarket for the car (especially suspension). The car has potential, would need to work out a few bugs though.

I'm planning on buying a Lanos. What is the fuel consumption? I drive quite fast. In kilometers please.
