1996 Daewoo Cielo 1.5 MPFI SOHC from Australia and New Zealand
A very average car
Seat frame has broken twice.
Several breather hoses & cam cover gaskets replaced.
Radiator fractured requiring replacement after air conditioner pulley flew off (80,000klm).
Camshaft lobe worn off, blown head gasket requiring a very expensive repair (108,000klm).
Water pump (140,000klm).
RHS brake caliper seized twice (120,000 & 200,000klm).
3 speed automatic transmission overhauled (150,000klm). Also expensive.
Radio buttons faulty.
Steering wheel grip has separated from the wire inside, which makes it twist in your hand.
Volvo has the high mileage club. Do I get a prize for getting 200,000klm in a Cielo?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
