You also could try a "vakgarage" in your neighborhood. I did this with my Daewoo and they are much better than the Daewoo dealer!!

I have driven a Daewoo Espero 1.8 saloon P reg for years with complete satisfaction. However last year the drive shaft snapped in two which neither the rescue nor garage had ever heard of before. This year the engine has oil leaking into the cooling system and I have been told the metal in the engine block has become porous. Has anyone else had problems like this?

Now Daewoo have gone bust there is no point in keeping a Daewoo of any kind. As getting parts for Daewoo is a pain and it's no wonder your local garage cannot fix a Daewoo. I too have a Daewoo Espero 1.8 CDI I have had the car three months and I'm already looking to get shot of it. The engine is rough and noise in the cabin on motorways is loud fuel consumption is poor by todays standards and the list goes on. My advice is stay well clear of Daewoo.

Well I have used a Daewoo Espero for a year now, bought it second hand at a mileage of 73,000, runs superb, had no problem with it apart from the alternator, which I changed once, got a new battery and now have a leaking sun roof, which is annoying when it rains. Apart from these it's a good car to have, runs very fast if not for the UK speed regulations, has a large room for 5 and a very large boot space too. Does anyone know where I can get the sunroof fixed?

Just bought a second-hand Daewoo Espero - ABS light keeps coming on, but I brought it home via a 1 in 5 hill in Derbyshire, and I'm still here to tell the tale! Drives superbly, though a bit greedy on petrol.
