1996 Daewoo Cielo 1.5i from Australia and New Zealand
Cheap and disposable
The seat has bent.
Cat converter needed replacing.
C.V. joints replaced.
Parcel shelf broke.
Engine oil leaks.
Muffler box needed replacing.
Air con needed regassing.
Boot handle broke.
Boot struts failed.
These cars are built to be crushed when replaced, not resold! The car is very poorly made. It is very rough to drive for a car which has low kays and service history from the only one owner before me.
The steering is very heavy without power assistance, and the cabin is a little noisy..
The power is pathetic. The motor sounds like a run away shopping trolley when is revved close to red line.
The driving position is seriously wrong.
The only thing that this car has going for it is that it uses only about 5-6 litres of petrol per 100kms of travel. Also it is very light on tyre wear.
The car has exceptional boot area, but the interior is crap and only homely for a 5 year old.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I agree. My engine screws are rusting away, I have just tried to open my boot and broke the handle in the process.
Engine leaks oil. The car is very good on gas, but at 67ks is still very rough. It it apparent that it was made very cheaply using cheap materials.
It handles very well for a little car though. But overall a waste of time!
